James “Hawk” Davis, our amigo from La Ventana put the wood on this surprise yellowtin tuna estimated at about 80 pounds!
TV show host and actor, Rick Kasper on the beach at Bahia de Los Muertos. Rich had a nice day of dorado including these two and a few others.
Captain Favio was out with Sam from North Carolina and they stuck this beefy yellowtail from the island.
Washington amigos in the house! Grant and Carol Darby with our Captain Gerardo and a colorful selection of the day’s catch including pargo, yellow snapper, cabrilla and sierra! All great eating fish.
YELLOWTAIL YES…BUT TUNA IN FEBRUARY?
La Paz – Las Arenas Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 1-8, 2015
After two weeks of on-again-off-again funky weather that included both wind AND rain, we finally had a week where the clouds parted a bit and we got sunshine and calmer seas.
Accordingly, I’m not surprised that we got into a few more fish and had some better conditions. There was still some wind, but it was still better than it had been!
We had quite a variety and I guess the biggest news was the surprise jag of tuna found at the north end of Cerralvo Island. Commercial fishermen had been trickling reports to us of fast moving tuna now and then, often moving too fast to get on them, but we finally stuck one. James “Hawk” Davis our amigo, stuck a fish we estimate at perhaps 60 pounds dragging a Rapala. Now, normally, we don’t see tuna until maybe late spring or early summer and it’s too soon to call this a “tuna bite.” But, it’s darned exciting to see a good-grade ahi hit the deck! We’ll keep you posted.
Hawk got his fish on 40 pound test and his xRap30 was the mackerel pattern. According to Hawk, there’s yellowtail around in the shallow spots, but that’s the problem. Dragging deep running lures like the XRap30 means losing alot of expensive Rapalas in the rocks!
As for other species, there’s some slugger yellowtail also around the island with most fish running 20-30 pounds. A nice grade of hefty fish that can pull like crazy. This is the right time for more of them to show up.
In addition, talk about a buffet of species…we also have been getting into pargo…both the big mullet snapper (pargo liso) as well as the barred pargo mulatto that have the pretty orange and green bars on them. Fish have been 5-20 pounds which might not sound like much until you try putting the wood to one of these guys and try to pull him outta the rocks.
We also found schools of dorado…some smaller school-sized rooster fish…bonito and cabrilla for a nice mix of fish.
Conditions look like they’re going to hold so hopefully, we’ll get some better fishing reports coming up!
TAILHUNTER WHALE WATCHING TRIPS IN FULL SWING!
Our daily trips out to Bahia Magdalena for whale watching have been having some incredible times! Lots of whales in the water and it’s an amazing experience to get close to these incredible animals. They usually hang out in the area until about mid-March or so. Plenty of time to see them before they start their long journey north back to the Bering Sea by Alaska! For more information, give us a call at 626-638-3383, or write us at email@example.com.

I’m going to keep this somewhere very special. We were honored to get such a thoughtful gift! Thanks, Rod!
We just finished one of our best shows of the year at the Portland Expo Center for the Northwest Sportsmans Show! It as off-the-charts!
