Salton Sea fishing guide Ray Garnett reported great catches last week while guiding customers along the west side of the Salton Sea from the Navy Base all the way north to Avenue 81. Garnett reported anglers catching limits of five big corvina each while out using mudsuckers, tilapia and swim baits.
Boats fishing out of Red Hill last week had a few bad days but strong currents brought in good water and limits were being caught early in the week by anglers fishing near Obsidian Butte, the Stick, at the end of the old Red Hill jetty, and the mouth of the Alamo. Anglers were using swim baits and mudsuckers to limit out.
Obsidian Butte was the hot spot early in the week as multiple anglers limited flinging mudsuckers and swim baits. Action off the dikes at the end of Lack Road and Young Road was fair with fishermen only reporting one or two fish each.
