Late breaking news! SUNDAY…Wow! Lookit this! WAHOO DAY! Anyone in the S. California fishing industry knows pro Danny Kadota. He and his daughter Alexa were with Captain Victor today and got THREE wahoo and had another one bite through 250 pound mono! Check out Alexa’s massive ‘hoo!
FOOTBALL SEASON FINALLY? The football-sized yellowfin tuna finally made an appearance for the year. There weren’t many of them, but the sprinkling of fish were a nice surprise the last two weeks like this one by Steve Snead from Boise Idaho, who had a great week. He’s here with Captain Pancho.
Captain Archangel with our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet poses with Jim Adair and Brad Baker and one of the larger models of dorado we got this past week. They’re on the beach at Bahia de los Muertos.
Don Busse found a hot spot for rock fish this past week showing off a nice rack of cabrilla and big triggers. Our amigo was fishing with Captain Pancho.
Louie Sanchez, was not going to be denied his Baja trip to celebrate his 50th birthday and anniversary with his wife and family. After the hurricane, they jumped through all kinds of hoops to get down from home and Denver and got in some OK dorado fishing.
First-time tuna for Ken Campbell from Lakewood CA with amigo, Jeremy Friez (helping out holding up the tail). Next time we’ll get Ken to eat the heart…as is the custom with first-time tuna takers!
Steve Snead had a great story. He finally got his marlin off the bucket list. He was already hurting from a bad back, then tied into this gorgeous 150-pound class striped marlin. On light tackle, Steve and his back battled the first for 45 tough minutes. He got the fish out just long enough to take a picture then released it swimming strong. He came back to shore and went bed with a big smile but completely whupped.
She’s a champ! Young Sierra Sanchez is only 8-years-old, but was quite a trooper coming down to La Paz and fishing for the first time. The youngster is from the Denver, Colorado area and shows off her first dorado proudly with Captain Joel.
Determined to make it down, Steve Walker from idaho and his amigo, flew into Loreto then took our 5-hour shuttle to La Paz to make sure not to miss their fishing trip! Steve’s got a nice big bull on the gaff here that he caught north of La Paz.
I don’t know how he stays so clean fishing in all white clothes all day! But, Chris Malley had a pretty good week including these two yellowfun tuna he caught off Bahia de Los Muertos!
Don Busse and his gang…Ken Campbell…Jeremy Frieze…John Gibbs…Jim Adair…Brad Baker…Angelo Oliverio…and Chris Malley…brought in several hundred pounds of supplies and clothes for Jill’s hurricane relief efforts! it filled several duffle bags and ice chests! Since the hurricane, Jill has collected over 400 pounds of things for needy folks post-Odile.
Wiley Randolph from Fullerton CA…another big heart ….and a great shopper…brought down brand new kids’ shoes, schools supplies and medical first aid things for Jill’s hurricane relief efforts.
Jill, Cortez, Sierra and Louie Flores…all the way from Denver for the week and stuffed their bags with clothes, schools supplies and other great stuff for the hurricane relief. Big smiles and big hearts. Thanks to a wonderful family.
AIRPORTS OPEN – FISHERMEN COMING BACK – SO ARE THE FISH!
La Paz – Las Arenas Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 5-12, 2014
Since hurricane Odile, three weeks ago, we’ve played cat-and-mouse with some erratic weather that seems to keep popping up and dropping some thundershowers on us now and then. Mostly, it’s been great weather, but like the rest of the season, we do have to keep watching the weather reports and the horizon to check for building thunderheads.
However, for the first time since as long as I can remember, I’m looking at the weather forecasts the last few days and into the next few weeks and there’s zero precipitation forecast. There are no little “weather icons” on the internet with little clouds and thunderbolts or rain icons on top of the daily advisories! We’ve got gorgeous 95 degree sunny weather for days and fishing conditions could not be better.
As for the fishing, it’s making a comeback.
The fish got hit pretty hard too with the crazy weather and green dirty water really mixed it up from the storms and the run-off and it takes times to settle in. Each week, the water seems to get a little better.
Fishing isn’t great, but it’s good most days and there’s even some jags of “very good” thrown in.
LA PAZ FISHING
Dorado have been the most consistent players, especially for our Tailhunter La Paz fleet. There are spots of dorado just inside La Paz Bay and in various places around Espirito Santo Island, but the best concentration and larger fish are around the Rosario / Las Cruces area in the channel between La Paz peninsula and Cerralvo Island. Fish aren’t bit, but they’re fun decent fish of 10-20 pounds with an occasional 30 pounder. Some days are better than others. Some boats will get limits some days while others right next to them will hit only a handful of fish or less. But, the fish are there!
Likewise, there seems to be a nice bit of marlin and sailfish around right now. Most have been caught incidentally while fishing for other species, but we’ve been hooking them all last week. Not alot, but every day is different. We had one day where almost every one of our pangas hooked at least one billfish. The next day there were only 2 hooked. Next day nothing. Day after that there were 4. All fish either broke off or were released except one which was kept and donated.
As a little sidebar, we had 2 wahoo hooked and cut off as well this week.
Late update: Got some wahoo late Saturday off Espirito Santo Island!
This area has been a bit of a puzzle this past week. The biggest news is that we got our first football yellowfin tuna in a long long time. There’s some spots of tuna that keep popping up around Cerralvo Island with some fish up to 100-pound reported by commercial fishermen.
The bad news is that we only got about a dozen footballs all week that went 12-20 pounds. That’s it. There are so many bonito around that you catch about 20 bonito to get one tuna…if at all. I mean, it’s alot of fun and alot of action. But, if you’re looking for some good ahi meat to take home, it’s alot of energy. Still, it’s nice to have the tuna around!
The other downside is that if you spend the better part of your day chasing tuna, you won’t get much else. So, the counts have not been real good for our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet. When they DO chase other species, there’s dorado around and the pangas will get 2-8 fish hooked up per day and the counts differ. It all depends if the guys went after the tuna or not.
So, what alot of our guys are doing is getting their dorado and ice chests filled by fishing La Paz, then specifically going for tuna with our other Tailhunter Fleet at Las Arenas. Seems to work out OK.
Last minute update: Five wahoo taken on two pangas late Sunday up to 50 pounds!
We’re up an running. Airports are open. Flights are in. The Los Cabos Airport officially opened months earlier than anticipated on Oct. 3rd and welcomed their first flights on United and Alaska on Oct. 8th with mariachi bands and water cannon salutes! Other airlines are coming online. La Paz and Loreto Airports have been open for several weeks. Still doing some cleanup in the streets and to some businesses and homes, but the heavy work is mostly done and most things are running like normal. Most visitors would never even know anything happened! Come fishing!
That’s our story!
