The best news this week is corvina are starting to bite. Fishermen launching from Johnson's Landing in Salton City have been taking good numbers of corvina, including limits, from the west side of the Salton Sea. The best action has come on trolled Thin-Fin lures around the Navy base in 6 to 10 feet of water.
Salton Sea fishing guide Ray Garnett reported having the best success using a red and silver version of the Thin-Fin to catch fish. Other fishermen have been catching corvina by throwing swim baits in the area.
On Monday morning a group of fishermen launched from Red Hill Marina and fished the target off the old Navy pier seven miles west of Red Hill Marina. Tossing swim baits, they returned by mid-afternoon with full limits of corvina ranging up to 20 pounds according to Red Hill Marina resident ranger Merrill Inglis.
