Great fishing continued this past week at key points on the south end of the Salton Sea.
Early this week fishermen did well at the end of Lack Road casting wild eye shad, swim baits and mogambo grubs. Fish from 11 to 16 pounds hit best early in the morning.
During the hot bite pelicans could be seen diving on small bait fish. It was unknown if these were tilapia or croaker. However fisherman are now starting to catch croaker from the south end of the Salton Sea.
So far no tilapia are being taken and concern grows as fishermen wonder if they died off during this past winter when the water temperature dropped below 49 degrees Fahrenheit for a week.
