La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing For Week of Dec. 2-9, 2018

TOUGHER WEATHER HINDERS

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 2-9, 2018

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

SHORT ATTENTION SPAN WEEK at a GLANCE

Weather – Yuk.  Not only windier and rougher, but two days of the week we had rain and it was pretty hard at times.   But, not really anyone fishing those days anyway.

Fishing – Whoever went out at least, they got fish!  Some nice cabrilla, pargo and snapper.  Bonito always make for fun and some random dorado still around

Forecast – Later ths coming week might get pretty windy around Thursday and Friday.  Mostly cloudy.  Highs in the mid-70’s.  Nights in the low 60’s.

 

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Bonito and snapper in the box. Fun fishing. Snapper are excellent eating.

Not much to report this week.  There’s a number of things to point at.

 

First, it’s off-season.  Just not many folks fishing between November and April.  It can be windy and rough.  And indeed, that’s the 2nd reason there’s not much to report.

 

It was not only cold and windy this week, but it rained.  In fact, it rained pretty hard at times.  That winter storm “Diego” that dropped show and rain in California; flash flooding in Texas and is now slamming into the East Coast started down in Baja!  So, that’s not exactly conducive to fishing.

 

Finally, tack on the fact that this is the “lull” between the holidays.  There’s just not that many folks in town.  Some snowbirds mostly or folks just looking for a little sunshine compared to where they’re from.  And they’re not really in town to do much or any fishing.

 

All that being said, there was some spotty to OK fishing taking place.  Inshore species like snapper and cabrilla…sometimes large cabrila provided action.  For a lot of first-timers, bonito are always fun too.  Some good eating sierra were taken and here and there’s schools of dorado running 5-15 pounds were about the only blue-water species around, but a hoot for a lot of these snowbirds.

WHALE WATCHING SEASON COMING UP SOON!

Don’t forget!  January to March is our prime-time whale watching season over at Magdalena Bay.  Ask us about more details for this great family adventure.  It’s the largest migration on earth and a fantastic experience to get so close to those incredible animals.

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Nov. 25-Dec.2, 2018

WIND DROPS FISHING IMPROVES

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 25-Dec 2, 2018

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

SHORT ATTENTION SPAN WEEK AT A GLANCE…

Weather – Much better this week.  Winds gave us a break.  Mostly sunny.  Daytime temps mid-80’s.

Water – Getting cooler, but largely flatter this week and calmer with the absence of those northern winds

Fishing – Transitional mix with warm and cooler water fish taken.  Warmer water fish on the way out and more cooler water fish showing up.  But strangely, one day it would be mostly cooler water fish like pargo, cabrilla and sierra.  Next day, warm water fish like dorado and wahoo.

Fish Caught This Week:  Wahoo, dorado, bonito, jack crevalle, cabrilla, needlefish, sierra, snapper

Forecast: Looks like the northern winds return this coming week with very strong winds maybe Monday or Tuesday then later in the week very strong.  Chance of showers mid-week.

THE BIG PICTURE & THE REST OF THE STORY…

We’re not usually going to see dorado this time of year, but they were a great surprise this week. Most fish 8-12 pounds. Fun size, but some larger. Check out the big jack crevalle on the rack. They were fishing with Captain Gerardo.

Manny poses with his big wahoo caught right off the point at Punta Perrico. Decent wahoo week earlier.

Captain Armando put his guys on a full box of sierra plus some fat bonito, a cabrilla and a giant needlefish.

It was one of the better weeks we have had in awhile.  As is usually the case, weather has a lot to do with the fishing.  With mostly sunny skies, the winter north winds gave us a break for the most part allowing us to get out there and not make it an exercise in staying dry and in the boat in the big waves.  But, it also allowed us to get to some spots that are often difficult when it’s windy.

 

With daytime temps in the mid-80’s and nighttime in the high 60’s it’s a pleasant time to be in La Paz and the influx of snowbirds is a sure indicator.  But, as I’ve said in the past, they usually don’t fish or only fish a day so there just aren’t that many folks fishing this time of year.

 

But, we did get some folks out and the catches were rather surprising.

 

Early in the week out’ve Bahia Muertos, a good snap of 20-50 pound wahoo showed up just off the rocks with some nice fish hitting the box, but others getting lost.

 

All week, there were small bands of schoolie-dorado as well.  Nothing spectacular, but great fun action with fish running 8-12 pounds mostly with the occasional 20-pounder.  A bit unusual this time of year given the cooler water temps.

 

Other days, there was decent action on bonito, big jack crevalle, pargo and cabrilla and a sure indicator of cooler conditions was the appearance of good bites of sierra that make for great eating and fun on light tackle.  In fact, several days we had more sierra than I’ve seen in a long time.

 

The outlook for the coming week shows some spikes of wind as the northerns return, but most of the wind won’t hit until the end of the week.

 

That’s our story!
