WIND DROPS AND FISH CRANK UP ACTION!
La Paz – Las Arenas Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 20-27, 2013
The beginning of the week was a continuation of last week’s strong winter winds that kept everyone off the waters and hunkered down onshore. But once the winds let up we got back on the water again and late week bites confirmed that the fish are still there and going strong!
There’s a great and rather unusual mix of fish with both warm and cooler water species mixing it up and helping fill up the boxes.
For warm water species, it’s pretty unusual for us to be finding dorado this late/early in the season. It’s hard to know if this is a continuation late season bite or just an extremely early vanguard of a new dorado season. I guess it doesn’t really matter! Dorado are dorado and everyone’s happy with them! Not many complaints when breezing dorado come running through the chum line and tear into the lines! The fish are rangy with sizes going from 5 to 30 pounds or so…a nice grade. The fish are eating sardines, mackerel, dead baits and chasing lures…willing and eating!
In addition, the other inshore biters are ripping as well. Again…this seems a mite early in the season, but no one is complaining. This includes largo lisp (mullet snapper), cabrilla (sea bass) and some nice slugger yellowtail as well with fish up to 30 pounds.
As expected, the inshore fish are being found in the shallow waters around structure like reefs and rocks which help them stack odds against the angler show not only have to battle the fish, but the rocky jagged environment waiting to shred lines! North and south Cerralvo are especially good for the yellowtail as well as in Bahia de Los Muertos near the point and a tad further south near the Boca de Alamo Arroyo.
Other species have included some nice jack crevalle and bonito.
For some other great activities, the whales have shown up and are going full force out at Bahia Magdalena and we’re running our annual whale watching tours out to the bay to see the whales. The best time to see these magnificent creatures in the bay after their migration from the Bering Sea is from now to about mid-March.
