Santo Tomas Corvina and Pompano

I seem to be having issues posting my photos (first size, then server error). This link is from my Facebook:


Either way, here's my scoop. Arrived in ST on Monday morning and fished through Thursday. Day one was red hot, but most fish were shaker corvina. I managed to get seven keepers on my stringer in the first two hours. I likely tossed 15 or so back. It slowed a bit after that, but we hit fish off and on every day. Biggest fish around 4 pounds. We do not weigh or measure, so just a guess. The last day corvina were mostly hitting prop surface lures (woodchopper and the new zara spook like prop bait) I did land one good fish on a whopper plopper which was a first for me. The woodchopper has been consistently good over the years, including my lifetime Corvina 20 or so years ago. The bite was crazy, but very few fish managed to hood up. Mostly popping the lures out of the water. Spoons were hardly getting any hits right next to a guy working the surface. Other days spoons outdid the top water as usual. We caught aroung thirty keepable Pompano and half that many shakers. Punta Jaguey has been turned into a stinky shell midden as JJ has pointed out in another thread. PU! We caught corvina both north and south of ST. As usual a fun trip with my old friends.

We spent Sunday in Caborca. All went well except a mediocre seafood meal at El Timon. We stayed at El Jardin for 27 bucks a room. Very clean and comfortable little spot. It was 95 when we arrived at 3 pm but a great line of storms moved in dropping it to 75. We had sprinkles all evenening and a good rain at 2 am. I enjoyed my time there, but miss the dive mariscos joint by the hotel. They had great food. Next time I eat beef at La Carreta.

I loved watching that dude in black doing the low crawl along the curb. Kinda reminded me of a dog just hit in traffic with a broken back.

Old55 I am not seeing The Compa Junior in Caborca. Did I misunderstand where you were talking about?

Go to Caborca Informa facebook page July 3rd morning posting….I just happened on it by luck on my way back a few weeks ago..Caborca Informa is a great source all around…..crab season has begun and the fishermen are really pissed the Alduna is messing with them coming here from the North.
