Corvina fishing has rebounded with even bigger fish being caught in the south end of the Salton Sea.
The most productive area for boaters last weekend was off the tip of the old Red Hill jetty in 10 feet of water. I watched six fishermen from San Diego, fishing from two boats, give quite a display of fishing prowess as they caught and released more than 25 corvina. Most exceeded 10 pounds and some approached 20 pounds. At times all six fishermen were hooked with lunker corvina. They were using croaker and tilapia as well as tan and gold colored swim baits.
Jack's Hole produced large corvina for those fishing from boats and the dike between Young and Lindsey Road. Rat-L-Traps and mudsuckers seemed to be the bait of choice. Up to $10 were being offered by fishermen for anyone wanting to sell their Rat-L-Trap lure.
Fishermen are starting to catch fish around Black Rock. As the week progresses, boaters may not be catching limits of corvina but those fish caught are big.
