First-time visitor to La Paz with Tailhunters, Jack Calafato from San Diego got one of the larger dorado of the week scoring with this nice bull on his first day of fishing while on the water near Bahia de los Muertos.
Our good friend for many years, Bob Lederer, from Massachusetts with Captain Ramiro and a trophy bull dorado taken at Las Arenas.
Somewhere behind this fat round roosterfish is Rich Normyle from Bangor, Pennsylvania. His first bait hit the water and got spanked by the big fish and took 20 minutes to get to the boat. It was photo’d and released. Captain Raul with the Tailhunter La Paz fleet looks on and “helps” with the tail!
Captain Pancho is all smiles with our Oregon amiga, Mitch Bohna, and her dorado she hooked very close to the beach off Boca de Alamo.
Not a bad start to several days of fishing. Dennis Adair from N. California and Doug Oclassen from Colorado pose with a nice bunch of mahi on the sand.
Big smiles from Kris Brownlee who gets a hand from husband, Luke, with this fine roosterfish that chased a live ladyfish between Boca de Alamo and Bahia de Los Muertos justt off the rocks. They caught and released several nice fish. They’re from Rock Springs, Wyoming.
Captain Armando poses with our amiga, Shelley McDonell on the sand with a nice bull dorado that still has its colors. Shelley and Captain Armando always make a good team every year.
The ladies had a good week! Captain Jorge and Patty Lovato from the Denver, Colorado area on her first trip to fish with us in La Paz.
OC in the house! From S. California, Brendan Rowland, Dr. Mark Mulkerin and Ed Begany spent a few days fishing with us at Tailhunter and got into some good action with 2 days fishing at Las Arenas.
Dennie Dyer and Matt Lederer were just fishing with us and insist they got a yellowtail! Take a look. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but Dennie does seem to be holding a yellowtail…a fish we only catch in the colder waters! It might be a rainbow runner (yellowtail cousin), but hard to tell. Still a nice catch and tasty too…with the dorado!
DORADO KICK IT IN AT LAS ARENAS FINALLY !
La Paz – Las Arenas Fishing Report for Week of Aug. 3-10, 2014
Once again, dorado really kept up the for both our Tailhunter fleets this past week. Weather and water were fairly cooperative and threats of rain, while bringing some clouds, never materialized and, instead helped keep the heat away, although the humidity was still pretty thick. All-in-all, a pretty good week of action!
Over the past few weeks, this has been our tougher spot. There have been fish there all year, but lots of small fish and not a whole lot else. It if weren’t for the rooster fish there or the fortuitous marlin or sailfish plus jack crevalle and bonito, it would be a real yawner. Don’t get me wrong. Still good fishing! But, historically, this time of year, Las Arenas should be on fire instead of a steady smolder. But, we’ve been spoiled all these years. The lack of bait hasn’t helped.
Many of or clients have switched to our other fleet at La Paz to get not only more fish, but bigger fish!
Not so, this past week. We actually had the migration of clients doing just the opposite! We had clients wanting to spend more time fishing Las Arenas than La Paz.
For one, it was a little easier to get bait. In fact, we even had some small sardines by the end of the week. Whether the fishing was a function of the bait, or there were simply more fish in the water, the quantity as well as the quality o fish improved.
There still weren’t alot of “beast fish” with most of the larger fish being 20 pounders or so with a few 40 pound dorado. But, the “smaller fish” were much better. Instead of the 5 pound punks we were getting all season, the upgraded models were 10-12 pounders and limits of fish were fairly common. As one of our anglers said, “We could honestly have caught 10, 20 or more dorado each day, if it wasn’t for the fact that we wanted to get more variety and went chasing other species 1/2 way through the day. We got all the dorado we wanted!”
Sorry, no tuna have shown up…yet! And wahoo fishing hasn’t been so great either the last few weeks. However, there’s quite a few marlin and sailfish around if you want to chase them.
Even our flyfishermen got into the fish this week as well!
For the past few weeks, if you wanted to fill your ice chest, we had you fishing with our La Paz fleet. More and bigger fish had been the rule rather than the exception.
This past week, Las Arenas actually stepped out a little better.
It was still good for our La Paz anglers, but it seemed like there were more small fish than normal and not as many. However, if you wanted a shot at a 30-40 pounder, La Paz still gave you the best opportunity at a trophy.
The fish are in a wide area. You can seriously find fish right in the bay. In fact, we can see dorado, roosters and jack crevalle breaking just a few hundred yards in front of our Tailhunter Restaurant every day from our 2nd and 3rd floor terraces and birds working the schools like crazy. So, if you honestly didn’t want to go out too far, the bay is definitely holding fish.
Other areas are just south of Espirito Santo Island and along the current breaks west and east of the island. Another hot spot that’s actually being shared by both our Las Arenas and our La Paz fleet is just offshore from El Rosario/ Las Cruces/ Punta Gorda north of El Sargento. Some of our largest fish every week come from that drop off area where the shallow water falls off into the trench.
If you’re looking for billfish, sails and marlin are being caught right in the middle of schools of small dorado. Presumably, the billfish are in the schools feeding on the smaller fry dorado.
Roosters are getting round along the beaches too! Still some hog 40-60 pounders around.
That’s our story!
