mexico bay 8/18-8/21

Recommended Posts

Very slow trip with not many fish being marked in the bay.  Monday went 2 for 3 on kings (8,10 lbs)  fish caught in 240 FOW  160' down on the riggers, no strikes on dipsys.  Tuesday went 3 for 6 on kings (20,22,26.5) lost 2 far  back and 1 right at the boat.  190 FOW 160 down, 3 strikes on rigger, 3 on  dipsy 480 back.  Wednesday thermocline came up fished 180-300 FOW caught 2 kings (20, 24 lbs) in 190 FOW 130 down on riggers.  caught 2 Atlantic's in 280 FOW 130 down and 1 brown in 180 FOW 130 down.  Thursday went 1 for 1 king (22 lbs) 130 down.  action very slow, not much talk on radio but seemed in 500 FOW a few fish were being caught.  tried every spin doctor in my arsenal ( about 20 different patterns) with every fly combination, and spoons.  only thing that worked for us was 42nd spinny with atomik crinkle green fly, and hammertime board with a atomik blue hammer fly.  all in all about 40 hours of trolling for 8 kings, 2 atlantics, and 1 brown.  fish seem to be 2 weeks behind for this time of year although a few of the kings we caught were getting dark and eggs were about to separate, so should be happening any time.

Seems like you did better than most out there with a total of 6 matures.  Ill be back out there tomorrow morning.  Have no clue where to start.  Seems like the fish that are being caught in the 500FOW are mostly 2 year olds.  Id rather stay in and look for the elusive 30lber.
