I think mine was a striped pompano not pargo but what do I know I was not quite 8 years old at the time. I do remember a local on the pier helping us land the fish so we gave it to him to eat.

Regarding swimming with dorado, if you read the book Kon Tiki they regularly jumped off the raft to swim amongst Dorado. When they got back home they said they found out there were reliably documented cases of dorado biting people swimming with them. they're not going to kill you but as you said at the time they often had sharks hanging out below so if someone got bitten by the dorado, they might have a shark coming up from below to take a much bigger bite.

These days doesn't seem like there are many sharks left in Baja unfortunately.
