ALL BOATS LOADING UP SOUTH OF BAY AT SOCORRO
July 25, 2004, Pete Hillis, Pedro's Pangas, San Quintin fishing, Baja California, Mexico:
This week it seemed the quote of the day for San Quintin fishing was, "Who needs albies, anyway?"
We had 20 boats fishing this week and pretty much each day headed south to Socorro where each and everyone of them loaded up on all the white seabass, calicos and sandies they could handle.
Joe Chavez from Perris, CA brought down a nice group of guys and fished 3 days off the Pelicano and Skipjack with Captains Miguel and Sapo. Limits of these great fish were hauled in each day.
When the action is bottom fish and especially bass, this proves a great way to introduce kids to fishing. Brian Bunting (Huntington Beach, CA), with his children Allison (age 13) and Blake (age 11) fished with his friend, Pete, his son, Connor (age 9), and Connor's Uncle Josh (age 10). The dads had a blast watching these kids haul in the whites, calicos and sandys until their arms got too tired. This kind of action keeps the kids going a long time and therefore, they don't get bored and restless as they sometime can with trolling. We're sure each of these kids will want to come back again and again. Great way for dads to spend time with their kids. Brian's group fished on the Romey with Captain Hector.
And then rounding out our San Quintin fishing week, we had Danny Knight from Long Beach. He and his group also fished on the Romey during the week with Captain Hector for limits of the same at Socorro.
