SOME OF THIS…SOME OF THAT!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 6-13, 2019

Mexican Minute Video Report

Short Attention Span Week at a Glance

Weather – A bit chilly and cool this past week.  Mostly sunny skies in the mid-70s, but also some spotty rain showers here and there.  Depends where you were.

Fishing – Quite a variety of fish.  Hard to tell really when there’s not many folks fishing this time of year. However, the folks that did get out fishing did OK with some decent catches.

Type of Fish Caught This Week – small roosterfish, dorado, snapper, cabrilla, amberjack, bonito, needlefish, jack crevalle, small yellowtail.

Forecast – Actually some rain possibilities early in the week but hard to know where it will fall.  La Paz encompasses alot of area.  Rest of the week will be partially cloudy with highs in the mid-70’s down to the upper 50’s/ low 60’s.

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story

Ken Ward from Alaska probably doesn’t get a chance to wear those great shorts very often, but he also doesn’t catch any dorado up there either like this nice one just outside of Bahia Muertos where he was staying at Rancho Costa. Actually, a nice sunset bite!

Fun on the trout rods right in Bahia Muertos on feisty baby roosterfish. Ken got this and released it.

Some beautiful patterns on these nice cabrilla that make great eating for Steve Greer visiting from Wyoming.

El Jefe himself, Gary Wagner, owner of Rancho Costa in Bahia Muertos near La Paz with a couple of tasty firecracker yellowtail.

While Ken has another rooster bending his mini-rod, Chuck Chandler poses with another roosterfish. All roosters were released.

Some good eating! Mic Ward poses with a cabrilla and small amberjack some of the best cold water fish this time of year.

Not a whole lot happening this past week to be honest.  It was a bit cold and chilly and not a lot of folks on the water as we hit that lull after the holidays.  It’s hard to get a true assessment of fishing if there’s not that many folks getting out, but then again, there aren’t that many visitors and vacationers in the city to begin with.

 

However, there were a few out on the water who found some fun inshore action, especially on lighter tackle.  Efforts produced a wide range of species that included a few dorado and even some small roosterfish that were all released.

 

Over the reefs and rocky areas, cabrilla and yellow snapper put the bend on the rods plus bonito, sierra, jack crevalle and some smaller firecracker yellowtail and smaller amberjack.  Enough to keep folks happy and some good action.

 

This coming week looks a little cloudy and there’s even a chance of some rain with wind getting stronger and gusts to 25 mph later in the week.  The temps looks like they’ll run from the mid-50’s to 70’s.

FINALLY!

Our 20-year-old Tailhunter website needed a re-model and facelift!

After more than a year of work, we’re excited to announce that our new and improved Tailhunter website is up and rolling!  We think it looks great.  It’s sleeker, faster and turbo-charged easier to use and more friendly for social media, cellphones and pads!

It still has a few little bumps here and there that need to be fine-tuned and we’re still adding more to it, but we’re ready to go!

Thanks to AQGraphics and Jaime Laureano for all his work and patience and spearheading all the months of effort.

Check it out!  We hope you like it!  Click the link:

NEW YEAR STARTS WELL

Mexican Minute Video Report

SHORT ATTENTION SPAN WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Started a bit rough and windy but got better as the week went on.  Mostly sunny with daytime temps in the 70’s.  Some isolated showers.  Coming week almost a duplicate.

Waters – Seem to be getting cooler and cloudier, but there’s still some warm patches holding warm water species like dorado and tuna.

Fishing – Quite a surprise.  As the weather got better, so did the fishing. Ended up with some really great inshore action with quite a variety of unusual catches with both warm and cold water species!

Fish Caught this week:  (cold water species) yellowtail, cabrilla, pargo, snapper, sierra.  (Warm water species) dorado, tuna (hooked), wahoo (hooked), roosterfish, bonito, jack crevalle, triggerfish

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

All the way from Alaska, Mic Ward boats one of the first yellowtail of the season that bit a trolled Rapala. Mic was staying at Bahia Muertos near La Paz at Rancho Costa Resort.

Dorado in January right off the Punta Perrico rocks! That’s amigo, Gary Wagner who owns the Giggling Marlin Bar in Cabo and Rancho Costa Resort.

Lew Cox from San Diego just wanted to get away for some sunshine and had one day to fish and got a bit of variety for the fish box including sierra, dorado and bonito.

Steve Green has himself a dandy cabrilla caught just outside of Bahia Muertos. Steve is from chilly Wyoming and was staying at the Rancho Costa Resort.

Great shot. Great fish! First yellowtail bite of the season! Gary got this forkie trolling a Rapala X-Rap 40 deep diver.

 

Windier weather at the beginning of the week (and the year) put fishing on the slow side, but as the week went on, conditions improved and a nice variety of fish showed up especially for our anglers fishing in and around Muertos Bay.

 

In fact, the bite was surprising for the incredible mixed bag of both warm and cold water species.

 

Warm water species included dorado and smaller roosterfish as well as bonito and jack crevalle.  Cold water fish, more common to this type of year included our first yellowtail of the season plus cabrilla, snapper, pargo, and sierra.  Live bait is a bit difficult, but the fish showed no hesitation biting jigs, lures and trolled Rapalas.

 

None of the fish were far offshore…often within casting distance of the beach or rocks.

Nothing really big, but for many folks just down to find some sunshine and not really caring too much about what was biting, it was great action.  Often you just never knew what was going to bite and at times the bite was full-speed.  Anglers working light tackle really had a hoot.

 

Gray whales are starting to show up and the vanguard of the migration are moving in.  Whale watching season should be good and we’ll start running trips in about 2 weeks.

The whales have been more than cooperative to come visit with the boaters!

TAILHUNTER 2019 ROAD TOUR

Here we go!  Jill and Jonathan are on the road again!  For over 2 decades we spend the first 3 months of the year in the gypsy caravan covering over 15,000 miles and all the big fishing and hunting shows in the Western U.S.  It’s a great opportunity to see old friends and meet new amigos!

This week, Jill and I will be in our booth at the Denver Convention Center for the International Sportsmens Expo!  It runs from Thursday to Sunday (January 10-13th) and it’s an incredible fun event for the whole family!

There will be hundreds of fishing and hunting outfitters from Canada, Alaska, Mexico, Africa and just about every other location on the globe.  Tons of gear and new equipment.  RV’s and camping.  Off-road and boating.  It’s all there.

We’ll be in our booth for the entire 4 days.  Come by and say hi and let’s talk about fishing in La Paz .  Dates are filling so let’s get you set up!

Enough stuff for 3 months on the road! Me, Jilly and Catlyn! Driving through Texas on our way to Denver this week!

God bless TEXAS!
