From the 6th of February, the winds have been blowing and keeping most of the sane fishermen off the water. On Sunday the 17th, some of the commercial fishermen went out to try and locate the mackerel and yellowtail (jurel). As luck would have it, they found the bait and jurel in the same place they were at before the winds came up. The 3 or 4 commercial boats that went out that morning came home with fish boxes full. And the word spread.
The next morning, Bill Evans from Pa Paz and Gabino from Aqua Amarga, with Rigo as Captain, headed out at 6am to try their luck. The day turned out to be successful for both anglers, returning to the beach at Los Muertos with 6 beautiful yellowtail from 16 to 15 pounds. Both anglers had smiles on their faces and were discussing when they could make another trip.
Winds this time of year is the only thing that keeps anglers on the beach. The fish are here and if you have mackerel, you'll get fish. Getting them to the boat is another story.
One day after Bill and Gabino's trip, the winds came back and we are looking at probably another 5 to 7 days of rough water. We hope to have some more photos for you soon.
