Excellent corvina fishing continues on the west side of the Salton Sea for boaters fishing an area from Riviera Keys to two miles north of Johnson's Landing near the dome.
Salton Sea guide Ray Garnett reports his customers are limiting out every morning in less than three hours drifting in 6 to 18 feet of water using small croaker and 2- to 4-inch tilapia for bait.
Garnett fished near Riviera Keys on Sunday and his four clients limited with 20 fish by 7:30 a.m. Fifteen of the fish weighed 10 to 15 pounds. Garnett said many of the large fish were caught on hot pink Swim Baits allowed to drag behind the boat and occasionally jigged off the bottom.
Norm Niver of Riviera Keys reported that Larry Lewis and his son, and Rich Marsell of San Diego fished from his dock Tuesday morning and caught and released more than 70 corvina from 5 to 10 pounds. All were caught on Swim Baits, Scampi tails and Mogambo grubs.
