Some of the best corvina fishing of the year continued last week as fishermen caught large fish from shore and in boats around the south end of the Salton Sea.
The best action continues around Black Rock and Lack Road dike as huge corvina continue to feed on croakers in shallow water.
I had the pleasure of watching Brawley Public Works Director Manuel Aceves achieve a personal best and I think he is hooked on fishing for life, as he caught numerous large corvina with artificial bait from the Lack Road dike.
A 23-pound corvina was caught by Herman Meister of El Centro while fishing with Greg Thornburg of Holtville on May 31. They filled their limits with a 16-pounder and numerous others in the 10-pound range. The two, fishing from a boat around Black Rock, were casting chartreuse Swimbaits and Scampi lures.
