FEW ANGLERS AND INCONSISTENT WEATHER STILL PROVIDE FAIRLY GOOD LATE SEASON FISHING
La Paz/ Las Arenas Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 22-28, 2009
Not many anglers in town and fishing conditions have been variable. One day it’s sunny and calm. The next day, it’s sunny with lots of wind. The next day it’s cloudy and cold and looks like rain. We even got little sprinkles here and there. The seasons are definitely changing.
Almost all our fishing has been out of Las Arenas/Muertos. Right now with the unpredictability of the weather, it’s the best bet because even if the weather is less than desirable, at least we don’t have to go very far to catch fish. Close to shore, we can still get some roostersfish, jack crevalle and the occasional pompano.
As well, the chance of getting into a nice school of sierra is always there so that you can put easily a limit of the speedsters in the box in short time or catch-and-release as fast as you want. Good idea to bring a little wire for your hooks because these fish have sharp teeth.
If conditions are right, there’s still the opportunity to get into some of the bluewater fish still lingering. The good thing is that you don’t really have to go too far for the fish. Some schools of tuna and dorado aren’t too far from shore and a little live bait can get the fish worked up fast. But if it’s really windy, then too much chop seems to keep the fish lockjawed and down unwilling to come to the surface. There’s still some marlin and sailfish around too moving in the areas of bonito off the south end of Cerralvo (er…Jacques Cousteau Island *) Island. Also, there’s still some wahoo in the area as well. If you have the right rig in the water at the righ time, wahoo are in that same area between the south side of the island and the Punta Perrico area.
*As of Nov. 17th, that’s the new name for Cerralvo Island.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
That’s our story!
