BIG SCHOOLS OF YELLOWTAIL IN FISHING AT LA BOCANA
Nov. 25, 2006, Juanchys Aguilar, La Bocana, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
The Baja coast at La Bocana had good fishing this week for yellowtail about one-half mile south of the boca in very calm water, no winds, and the water temperature at 75 degrees.
The fishing water is very clear. We fished only with live bait this week. We fished at a depth of 25 to 30 feet in very large schools of yellowtail of 16 to 20 pounds, plus some at 45 to 50 pounds.
This season has been great for fishing at La Bocana. We continue to catch some dorado off the Baja coast about 6 miles out from the boca.
Fishing inside Laguna la Bocana is good for small grouper, halibut, and many spotted bay bass, close to La Bocana and also at the Glory Hole, where all the fish are caught and released.
We at La Bocana would like to thank all the people who fished in this area of Baja and practiced catch-and-release.
This week, we have also had yellowtail on the beach, medium sized corvina, and halibut. Domingo Aguilar Osuna caught a yellowtail of 46.6 pounds just outside the boca, and Joaquin Aguilar Murillo caught a 39.8 pounder in the same area.
