Mackerel and Bigeye:
Mackerel have only been for sale rarely since the New Year. This is because winds have prevented them from fishing for bait on most nights and of low sales. So we’ve been catching Mackerel from off Coronado Island. There is a lot of current out there so its tough to stay over the spot but there is bait there.
There are sardinas inside the marina but there haven’t been people buying them. This is mainly due to the winds. When we can get out and fish we’ve been taking advange of the calmer seas early in the morning, leaving too early to net the sardinas.
CURRENT MARINA BAIT PRICES (in Mexican Pesos):
* Mackerel: $250.00 Pesos for fifteen bait fish
* Sardinas: $200.00 Pesos for a tank-full
WHAT’S BITING OFF THE MARINA BREAKWALLS:
Barracuda, small pargo, bigeye, the occasional sierra and the all too common puffers and trumpetfish.
