Well, it's another year and I'll tell you what I know now , and as I get into it a little further I'll update you . |
On the beach , the action has been very good for the last few weeks . Talking to Mike Barbee , who with his good buddy Ray are on what's biting every day in front of La Manz , fishing has been very rewarding for the last few weeks . Toros, up to twenty-five pounds, are caught every day on bait and lures .Ray has been netting bait in the surf , saving it alive in a very cool floating bucket contraption , and changing to a fresh bait throughout the day . He has had great luck on large African Pompano , right out of the surf . Every day brings a new possibility of different species as water currents and temperatures change . I've seen halibut , sierras , dorados, needlefish as well as many others taken over the years.Mike has a great fishing shop located next to Loka Lora's on the beach, he can give you the scoop on equipment and lures that are working .
I took a few days to fish on the blue water last week , and came away a dorado , caught trolling fast on pink and blue lure,four chula tuna caught on Rapalas at 4 to 5 miles an hour along with an AmberJack , and a small Yellow Fin Tuna caught by Ken Broad about a mile off the shore once again on pink and light blue . The commercial fishermen out of the co-op have been having very good success 4-5 miles straight out from Ampolla on Dorado and Sailfish . They always fish with live bait when available.
Well, that's a short ( I hope) wrap .
