WARM WATER SPECIES STILL LINGER FOR ANGLERS WITH COOLER SPECIES MIXING IN
La Paz – Las Arenas Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 18-25, 2012
We hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving weekend! We’re grateful to all our Tailhunter friends and tribal members who read our fishing report each week!
Let’s get to it…
We’re still doing some pretty good fishing for so late in the season and the mix of fish is really surprising. With northern winds getting stronger and air temperatures getting cooler, I’m really happy to see such a great variety of species that we’re catching…most importantly the “glamour” warm water species that so many anglers come to catch!
Almost all of our fishing now is out’ve Las Arenas where even if the winds are closer, we’re more protected for launching our fleet as well as just more comfortable fishing! When fish are as close as just a few yards from shore, there’s no reason to run way outside and get bounced around and get your kidneys shaken loose outside the wind line!
But that’s what makes it fun right now. In addition to a decent dorado bite of 10-25 pound mahi both inshore and hear the closer buoys, the southern side of the island is still getting some late season wahoo bite with fish up toe 45 pounds. Rapalas doing most of the damage, but several were hooked on bait while guys were fishing for other species. The biggest hinderance is the wind which can really whip it up getting over to that side of the island from Muertos Bay ahd headed north.
But not far from shore from the Arenas lighthouse down to about Pescadero, we’re encountering dorado, roosterfish, nice batches of sierra, pargo, cabrilla, rainbow runners, pompano, bonito and jack crevalle. All of this can make for a lot of action in a fishing day!
Live bait is not a problem most day with live sardines available for purchase although they do tend to be on the smaller side so smaller live bait hooks are suggested. Due to the time change, I know it sounds early, but we’re leaving the hotels at 4:45 a.m. to get out at first light. Hopefully, the bite will continue a few more weeks!
That’s our story!
