WEATHER MORE COOPERATIVE…FISH NOT SO MUCH…THEN THE WEATHER CAME BACK!
La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 27-March 5, 2017
The week started off better than expected with sunny skies and relatively calm seas and minimal winds. Given how erratic it has been over the previous weeks with wind, rain, and other crazy conditions, it was a welcome thing to put folks on the water and have them actually ENJOY not getting bounced around!
I think however, even the fish didn’t know what to do with it. We had some great schools of mackerel fire up in Bahia de los Muertos with yellowtail and some indications of possibly tuna feeding as well under the yellowtail. The reality didn’t quite match the excitement. We got a few yellowtail. Really nice quality fish and lost a few, and no tuna showed up when our boats were there, but other than some dorado and a few reef fish like cargo and cabrilla, the fish seemed to be a bit lock-jawed. But, at least it was encouraging to get into some better quality fish like these yellowtail. Just no volume and nothing consistent.
It looked like it might be a decent week, but as the weekend hit, crash…thunder, lightning, wind, and rain hit us again and that pretty much shut things down. Back to winter!
I did sent out some recon boats to check out fishing the La Paz side given that it’s been such a windy winter and my La Paz captains are aching to get out’ve the blocks and get going, but the waters were still very green, cold and dirty…for now. The winds will have to settle for the waters to settle. Spring can’t come soon enough!
WHALES STILL HANGING OUT
Almost coming out to the end of our whale-watching season, but Mike McGuffin and his family from Folsom CA had a nice little day spending time with the whales.
NEW TRIBE MEMBER!
I just had to post this. Sorry to dote. He’s our first grandchild, Nolan Frederick Reid last Sunday night. Jill and I were there in Vegas all weekend sleeping in the hospital parking lot waiting for him to arrive, but he took his time! When he still hadn’t shown up, Jill had to make the call that we would have to cancel her appearing at the Boise Sportsmans’ Show and cancel her flight. So sorry, Boise! We’ll make it up to you next year!
Then, Nolan showed up!
I only had time to see him for a few minutes. I have yet to hold him but only kiss mom and rush out the door and hit the road to get from Vegas to Long Beach to set up the booth for the Fred Hall Show. I arrived at 3 a.m. Can’t wait to get back to Vegas in two weeks on our way to Salt Lake City to hold the little guy!
THANKS LONG BEACH AND SO-CAL! SEE YOU IN BAKERSFIELD!
Had another spectacular outing this past week at the Long Beach Convention Center for the 5-day Fred Hall Fishing and Boating Show. The aisles were packed with thousands every day and I’m hoarse from all the talking even tho’ I used my microphone system! What a blast! Great to see you all and thanks for all of you who brought gifts and birthday wishes. You’re the best! Lots of bookings for La Paz fishing too!
We now pack up the van for the Bakersfield Fairgrounds for the Sportsman’s Show there from Friday to Sunday. Come see us and say hi!
Here’s some photos from some of the fun!
That’s our story!
