PHOTO 1: Such a great shot. This is 12-year-old Trevor Davidson from Newport Rhode Island who came down with his dad, Simon. Yes, there’s still roosterfish around. Lots of small guys that are great to catch and release on light tackle. According to dad, ” This was just the first Rooster of many we caught that day, Sierra, Pargo, Jack Crevalle, Skipjack Tuna, and snapper were also caught. His biggest fish was probably a Jack Crevalle. I worked hard with my Fly Rod while he used a spinning rod and live bait, so he out fished me that day much to his glee.”
Jeff Iverson from Washington was down this past week and did one day on the water with his flyrod. In addtion to roosters, and sierra, Jeff popped this nice dorado as well. Pretty unusual to get dorado in the winter, but lingering warm water has kept the fish in the area. Great surprise!
LOTS OF MIXED INSHORE ACTION WITH LITTLE TRAFFIC ON THE WATER PROVIDES BENT RODS!
La Paz – Las Arenas Fishing Report for week of Jan. 4-11, 2009
Another pretty good week for a lot of varieties down here this past week. Even when the wind is blowing from the north, we’re still able to fish out of Muertos Bay. Fishing has been relatively close with an excellent mix of fish. Even our flyfishers are doing well. Most of the fish, however, are coming on live bait, mostly sardines, but they’re producing sierra, roosterfish, jack crevalle, bonito, skipjack, cabrilla, pompano, pargo and we even had a few dorado and two wahoo were hooked and lost on jigs. We had some guys this week on ultra light tackle fishing only bait and throwing bass lures like crank baits, poppers and jerk baits into the rocks and hammering fish after fish! They lost alot of gear to snapper, pargo, cabrilla and sierra, but said it was some of the best action they had ever had with almost every single cast producing a hit!
It’s a great time to be down. Very little pressure on the fishing spots. Air temps are in the mid-70’s and sunny. Water is about 10 degrees cooler in most places.
