La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Feb. 10-17, 2019

WIND PROVIDES FEW WINDOWS

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 10-17, 2019

Mexican Minute Weekly Video Report

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

Janie Robison escaping from chilly Wyoming got herself a nice yellowfin tuna.

We had folks fishing Bahia Magdalena this week. Guy Nazareno is holding a nice snook. But actually, it was caught by his 5-year old daughter, Natalie, but she couldn’t hold up the big fish although she dialed it in all by herself.

Big smiles for our very own, Jorge Romero, who took this tasty corvina in the shallow waters of Bahia Magdalena this week.

Donna Corona helps Janie Robison with her dorado taken just outside of Bahia Muertos.

Cute little baby roosterfish inside the bay! The fish was released to grow into one of the giants we get later in the season.

The winds came back this week and it was on the chilly side.  However, fortunately the two best days when the winds laid down were the two days we had folks out on the water!

Bottom line, however is that the opportunities, overall for the week were small and when we did get fish, it was mostly bonito.  No sugarcoating it.

On the two days when the winds gave us a break…

The first day, as is often the situation during these windy months, bait was hard to find so we had to drag lures.  Still, some good action with lots of bonito to bend rods.

The 2nd day was much better and live bait was available and our folks got more bonito, but also small roosterfish and even dorado and tuna which are pretty unusual this time of the year during the colder windier months.

What many folks seem to forget is that when there’s storm in the U.S., the “winter conditions” don’t stop at the border.  It has been an incredible stormy week in the western U.S. and along the Pacific Coast with wind, rain and snow.

Consequently, it was also windy and relatively cold in La Paz as well.  The coming week doesn’t look that much better, but that’s to be expected this time of year.

In Other News…

Our Whale-Watching Season is in full swing.  Lots of whales there in Bahia Magdalena and we’re running daily and over-night tours there for as long as the whales stick around.  Hopefully until mid-late March!

 

Jilly and I just wrapped up the best Salt Lake City show ever at the Great Western Hunt and Conservation Expo at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City.  It was probably the largest hunt show we have ever participated in with outfitters from all over the world including S. America…Asia…Canada…New Zealand…Alaska…the U.S…./even Russia!  Just walking the aisles was a lesson in geography!

Take a look at this video, I made.  Turn up the volume and click the link:

We had folks come to see us from a number of states including New Mexico…Wyoming…Colorado…California…Arizona…Idaho and, or course Utah.  We booked lots of trips!  If you’re planning to come see us this year, don’t wait until we visit your town.  We’re filling fast. Get in touch with us. We have 7 more shows to do!

Our next show is in Boise, ID from Feb. 28-March 3rd.  We will be at the Boise Expo Center at the fairgrounds in Boise.  Come check us out and let’s talk fishing in La Paz!

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 3-9, 2019

BEST BITE EARLY IN WEEK

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 3-9, 2019

Mexican Minute Video Fishing Report

Spoiler alert!  This week’s video report was NOT filmed in La Paz!  But, it makes it easier to sell sunshine and warm sandy beaches in places like this!   Thank you, Oregon!

 

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

The week started well with lower winds and calmer seas for once.  Not many anglers in town, but we had a few and surprisingly got into some water-water action with a handful of dorado popping up.  Nothing big, but it’s surprising to get dorado in the winter and for first-timers hooking an acrobatic 10 or 15 pound dorado is pretty exciting.

In addition, jack crevalle, good numbers of fat bonito plus some cabrilla over the rocks provided fun action, especially on light tackle.  As the week went on, winds came up and it got colder and rougher..enough to bend the palm trees and put little white-caps on the bay.

TAILHUNTER WHALE WATCHING SEASON FULL ON

Our 2019 whale watching season is in full swing over at Bahia Magdalena and there’s a good number of grays that have already show up in the bay.  They’ve arrived from their migration from the Bering Sea and around until about early or mid-March!  Come on down and check out this great experience.  Get in touch with us at http://www.tailhunter.com .

WHERE WILL BE WE NEXT?

By the time you’re reading this, we’ve left snowy cold Portland Oregon and headed to….snowy cold Salt Lake City, Utah!  But, first a shout-out to Portland and all of our amigos in the Pacific NW for all the hospitality and ohana after 3 week in one of our favorite places.

It was off-the charts with shows in the Seattle and Portland area.  Lots of you are coming to see us in La Paz this year so we’re looking forward to seeing you again!

So now, onto show #5…it’s at the

GREAT WESTERN HUNT

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 27-Feb. 3, 2019

COLD WINDY WEEK IMPROVES

La Paz  – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 27-Feb. 3, 2019

Mexican Minute Video Report

Not many anglers around these days which is off-season.  Early in the week we it was pretty chilly, cold and windy.  Conditions got a little better as the week went on.  Bait is an issue because of the rough water so our captains relied on slow trolling dead bait and lures inshore where it was more protected.  Catches included bonito, jack crevalle, snapper, cabrilla and barred pargo.

WHALE WATCHING SEASON IN FULL SWING

Although it’s not prime time fishing right now, from late January until March, it’s our whale-watching season and it’s in full swing and we’re running daily and overnight trips to Bahia Magdalena every week to spend time with the whales.  Great family trip and opportunity to spend some incredible close-up action and interaction with these fantastic animals in the calm bay waters.  E-mail us if you’d like more information at Jonathan@tailhunter.com

Coming to Portland This Week!

Our Tailhunter 2019 tour swings us into the big Pacific Northwest Sportsmans Show this week at the Portland Expo Center.  This is probably the largest show in the Pacific Northwest and one of the largest in the Western U.S.  with almost 1000 vendors from all over the world including Mexico, the U.S., S. Africa, Alaska, New Zealand, S. America and more!  If you’re into fishing, hunting, camping, boating and just the outdoors in general, there’s something for the whole family whether you’re looking for some great gear;  booking a potential trip; or want to test stuff or talk and learn from experts.

Jilly and I will be in our booth at the Portland Expo Center all five days from Wednesday to Sunday! Let’s talk fishing!
