San Quintin, Mexico:
Lingcod To 20 Pounds Landed By Don Eddie's Fishing Boats

April 3, 2005, Sarai Garcia, Don Eddie's Landing, San Quintin, Baja California, Mexico:

Here in San Quintin the fishing weather is changing. It is cool in the mornings, and in the evenings. Temperatures the rest of the day ranged in the mid-70s.

This week San Quintin had a couple of windy days but the die hard anglers kept going to the fishing grounds. The rest of the week the sea at San Quintin has been calm with slightly murky waters in some spots close to shore.

Water temperatures in our San Quintin sportfishing area ranged from 59 to 61 degrees.

The fishing catches this week were mostly reds and huge lingcod, up to 20 lbs. We also had fishermen coming back with sheephead and some calico bass from El Socorro area. Caught in the 180 and 240 spots.

Also our sportfishing fleet caught four yellowtails up to 17 lbs. The Humboldt squid are all over San Quintin bay, which is giving the fishermen some thrills, especially the children.

Don Eddie of Don Eddie's Landing went fishing with his captain, Alfredo Peralta, to find some new fishing spots around 30 miles from home base. For commercial fishing purposes and to supply his own restaurants, they came back in a period of 5 hours of fishing with 450 pounds of rockcods and lingcods.
