La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 7-14, 2018

Our Captain Adolfo was out just outside of Muertos. Dropped a mackerel and caught the nice little yellowtail. So, he then put down a Rapala and immediately got whacked by the wahoo right up close to the rocks!

Bonus for Paul Melewski from Colorado staying in Muertos Bay at Rancho Costa. Goes out for snapper over the rocks and pops a pair of dorado…in January!

THE LULL AFTER the HOLIDAYS

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay / Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 7-14, 2018

Not many folks fishing this week which is pretty typical now that the holidays are over.  Most of the holiday visitors have left and town is pretty mellow again, not that it was ever very bustling.  But, by the same token, not many folks fishing either.  Too bad because it was actually a pretty decent week for weather and the few trips we had out all resulted in some surprising fish.

There were the usual jacks and snapper, but also in those same spots close to shore and over the rocks we got yellowtail and wahoo.  In the bay, there’s still some dorado cruising around too.

THANKS DENVER – ONWARD TO SACRAMENTO

Thanks to everyone who came to visit us in Denver.  The ISE show at the Denver Convention Center was massive.  Great turnout and great to have so many of you booking to come visit us in La Paz this year.  Apologies if I personally missed you as I was out  2 1/2 days from the booth with a fever, no voice and an upper respiratory infection!  But, Jill did a stellar job, as she always does and I’m mo’ bettah now!  Thanks for understanding!
So, we’re on the road now with our van loaded and driving through the snow to get form Colorado to California to set up at the ISE show at the California Fairgrounds in Sacramento.  This is the largest hunting/ fishing show in N. California and a huge event for the whole family.  Come see us. We’ll have the booth in the usual spot.  Show runs Thursday to Sunday.  Here’s more details.  Click this link:
Hope to see you there this week!  Let’s talk about fishing in La Paz!
That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 1-7, 2018

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT for WEEK of Jan. 1-7, 2018

Regretfully, no video report this week.  Have picked up a cold up here in the states with this colder weather that I wasn’t ready for and LOST MY VOICE!  I have to save it for the  4 days of showtime this week at the International Sportsmans Expo in Denver at the Convention Center.  Hopefully, it comes back!

The Big PICTURE FISHING REPORT 

It’s not summer warm, but it’s definitely warmer than Chuwelah, Washington where Mark Burlington is from posing here with a nice dorado unusual for this time of year but no complaints. – Mark was staying at Rancho Costa there in Muertos Bay where we’re doing all our fishing this tie of the season.

Normally, we don’t see dorado until about April or May and even that’s a bit early, but either these are holdovers from last year or new fish have moved into area. One of the reasons is in the video clip below. Check our the sardine schools in Bahia Muertos!

Thanks to Gary Wagner for this video clip showing a big reason so many species might be in the bay right now is the presence of schools of sardines.  A great sign for the season! Food!!!!

Schools of big jack crevalle have moved in and are incredible fighters especially on light tackle although not such great eating. Dean Schilling all the way from Wisconsin enjoying some warm Baja weather and some time fishing. He’s staying there in the Bay at Rancho Costa.

Miles Wagner from Colorado Springs CO with his dad, Gary, was throwing top water plugs when this bull mahi jumped the lure. Well, it then proceeded to jump right into the boat too! Miles also caught jacks, tuna and cabrilla this week.

Keegan and Paul Miewski also there in Bahia Muertos rocked some good eating bottom species with a couple of hefty barred pargo mulatto!

The head man himself, jefe of Rancho Costa, Gary Wagner did some later afternoon fishing and caught another early season visitor. Amberjack are the larger cousins to yellowtail and we don’t usually see them until May or so! Great eating and they get over 100 pounds although this size is the best eating!

Here’s something you don’t see every day. Gary Wagner who owns the Giggling Marlin Bar in Cabo and the Rancho Costa Resort in Muertos Bay was walking the beach and a commercial guy was cleaning a strange fish! He said he was about 600 feet out in the bay and caught this…HALIBUT??? First time I’ve seen one in these waters in over 30 years! Just so you know it’s not fake, you can see Rancho Costa in the background. If it looks like a duck…walks like a duck…sounds like a duck…??? HALIBUT?

Maybe salmon will show up next? The Mexican name for halibut is “Lenguado” (tongue fish). This is on the beach at Bahia Muertos and that’s Rancho Costa Resort in the background. No photoshop!!!

GOOD START FOR THE YEAR WITH SURPRISE SPECIES!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of January 1-7, 2018

Happy New Year Everyone!  Hope the year is off to a good start!

Not a bad week of fishing. Nothing spectacular, but a nice variety of species including some genuine surprises.  Not many folks fishing but everyone out did catch some fish.  Still some pesky winds but mostly nice enough to fish with all of our fishing taking place out of Muertos Bay/ Las Arenas Areas where we can fish closer to shore and it’s more protected.

In addition to species we normally catch like barred pargo, yellow snapper and cabrilla, there were also some nice schools of jack crevalle to bend the rods and put on great fights although not such good eating.  Still lots of fun.  In addition, there were also bonito and a smattering of surprising yellowfin tuna and dorado around the bay as well.
Tuna, dorado and amberjack are a real bonus this time of year.  Normally, we don’t see these species until spring when the waters are warmer.  If you check out this week’s photos, you’ll also see a…halibut???  Yup . It sure looks like it!  It’s crazy.
Alot could be due to the fact that there’s still sardine schools in the bay drawing the fish to the food source.  That’s all a great sign and hope the bait stays around.  Last season the return of the bait marked an incredible fishing year!
The coming week looks OK for the weather although strong winds mid-week.
Big shout out to Gary Wagner owner of Rancho Costa Resort in Bahia Muertos where we’re doing all of our fishing right now for all the photos he sent.  If you’re interested in staying at his great place, give us a shout at:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com.

WHALES ON THE WAY!

The migrating gray whales should be showing up any week now to spend the next several months with us after 3500 miles of swimming from the Bering Sea.  They’ll be at Bahia Magdalena until about March and February is a great time to lock in your trip with us to have an incredible experience close up to these great animals.  It’s really popular and many dates are filled or nearing capacity so don’t wait.  Contact us at:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com and we’ll set you up!

SEE YOU IN DENVER!

Getting the booth set up! Show starts Thursday!

This is a huge show with 4 full days and more than 600 vendors from all over the world of hunting, fishing, travel, boating, camping and more for the whole family!

It’s been a long drive but we’re finally here in Colorado setting up the booth and getting ready for the International Sportsmans Expo that kicks off this Thursday and goes to Sunday.  It’s in the Denver Convention Center downtown and is always a fantastic family event with over 600 booths and vendors from all over the world  with travel, gear, hunting, fishing, boating, camping and more!
We’ll be in our usual spot and would love to chat with you about visiting us in La Paz this week! Come say hi.  Grab one of our 24 -page brochures and maybe a Tailhunter t-shirt!  Here’s more info. Click the link.

 

Hope to see you there.!
We’ll be on the road for the next 3 months moving from city to city.  Next up on the agenda is Sacramento at the State Fairgrounds January 18-21.
Have a great week!
That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Dec. 24-31, 2017

CABRILLA SNAPPER DORADO CHRISTMAS WEEK

 

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 24-31, 2017

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO VERSION FISHING REPORT 

THE BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

Surprising to still be getting dorado this late in the year, but there’s still some fun-sized fish hanging out close to shore in the bay.

Some good eating! Cabrilla are becoming more prominent now that we’re doing more inshore fishing along the rocks and reefs. These Mexican “seabass” can get pretty large and are all tough fighters to get out’ve the rocks!

Nice rack of fish this week from Muertos Bay! Dorado and cabrilla!

One of the nicer flat days this past week at Bahia de los Muertos produced this nice bull dorado!

 

Looks like the last fishing report of the year, everyone!!!  Hope the holidays have been good to you!

The weather gods were surel good to us this week.

Wind wasn’t too bad of an issue and some great sunny skies for the snowbirds that are in town for the holidays.  Biggest “problem” if you can call it that, is that most folks in town aren’t here to fish!  But that’s OK too!  It’s a nice time to just be in town to enjoy some  warm sunshine, beaches and getaway from the cold places people come from!

For those folks who did get out fishing, there was decent action.  Not great but still some fish to be caught.  It’s winter and off-season.  So, it’s nice to even be able to be out there!
I often have to keep in mind that the folks who fish this time of year, aren’t necessarily “fisherfolk” who have a lot of experience and are just looking for a nice day on the water.  So, we don’t want get too technical with them and want to make sure they have a nice time and still catch some fish.
So, most of the fishing is closer to shore in the protected areas where we can get into some snapper, sierra, pargo, and cabrilla (seabass) as well as trigger fish.  That way everyone has a good time and gets to pull on some fish and have some fish to take home.  However, the bonus even in these areas, close to shore is that we have some dorado still in the area (decent 10-15 pounders).  There have also been reports of some yellowtail around too, but all broken off or could have easily been something else big that took the anglers into the rocks and busted off!  Still encouraging!  But, at least there’s still some action to be had.
The coming week doesn’t look too badly. There’s some winds in the forecast, but should be fishable!

TAKING WHALE WATCHING RESERVATIONS!  WHALES ON THE WAY!

Our whale watching season at Magdalena Bay is coming up!  The big guys show up from January to March with February being prime time.  Our reservations are filling up for day and overnight trips (you stay at a hotel on land!).  We can set up whole packages including the tours, transportation, meals, and other activities!  Let us know.  Don’t miss out on an incredible experience.  Just write to me directly at Jonathan@tailhunter.com and we’ll get you all set up!

TAILHUNTER ROAD TOUR 2018 COMING YOUR WAY!

We’re on our way!  The van is packed with our booth…a zillion brochures…a zillion t-shirts…We’re hitting the road and our first stop will be the fun city of Denver, Colorado.  We’ll be at the International Sportsmans Expo from Thursday to Sunday (January 11-14th).  Come by. Say hi and let’s chat about fishing in La Paz this year.  We had a phenomenal year…one of the best in recent history and it looks like 2018 is shaping up for another action-packed year!

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT for WEEK of DEC. 14-24, 2017

THE BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

You can sort of see the little white caps in La Paz Bay from the north winds, but it’s a nice time to spend Christmas in the city with nice sunny weather. Muy tranquillo!

SUNNY CHRISTMAS WEEK

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 14-24, 2017

Feliz Navidad a Todos!

Not a bad week. Mostly sunny and warm with day time temps in the high 70’s to low 80’s and night temps in the high 50’s. Pretty much perfect for the snowbirds coming to town to spend the holidays. Towns getting busier and folks are bustling around for Christmas and it’s pretty festive, but not a lot of fishing going on. The snowbirds are here for…well…sunshine and not necessarily fishing and locals are pretty focused on Christmas right now with street fairs, shopping, religious posadas (parades). So, it’s been relatively quiet on the water…even though the wind wasn’t a big issue this week although there were moments when it gusted and kicked up waves.

Reports from the water were mostly from the Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay Area and fishing at the north and south ends of Cerralvo Island (wind and waves permitting) and closer to shore near Punta Perrico and the old hotel Las Arenas.

From the island, some wahoo hook-ups (and lost) so wahoo are still around, but some yellowtail are starting to poke up their heads on live bait when you get it or on the same Rapalas that we’re using to slow troll for the wahoo. There was an unconfirmed report from commercial pangeros that there were still some tuna just off the south end of the island on the high spot as well. But, as I said, it wasn’t confirmed.

Closer to shore, scattered dorado up to about 10 or 15 pounds are still hanging out which is surprising given the lateness of the year. But, no one is complaining. Along the rocks, the pargo, cabrilla and sierra, our more typical cold-water catches are getting more prevalent as well as jacks along the deeper drop-offs.

TAILHUNTER ROAD TOUR 2018

It’s show time again! Jill and Jonathan are hitting the road with their booth and will be on the road for the next 3 months and coming to a show near you soon to talk about La Paz fishing!

Here we go!  On the road again for our 23rd year with Tailhunter Sportfishing in La Paz!  We’ll be at a different fishing/ hunting expo every week and we’d love to see you and talk about fishing in La Paz.  Our first show will at the Denver Convention Center for the International Sportsmen’s Expo!  It runs Thursday to Sunday JANUARY 11-14, 2018.

It’s always a great show and Denver is one of our favorite cities with lots of friends to see and visit.  Tons to see and over 600 vendors from all over the world with fishing, hunting, camping, boating and more .Come by with the family  and say hi.  You can get discount tickets at O’Reilly Auto Parts around the Denver and surrounding areas.

FELIZ NAVIDAD!

Wherever you are, from our Tailhunter Family to yours, may you have a safe, happy and peaceful holidays and Christmas!

That’s our story!  God bless!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Dec. 3-10, 2017

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT for WEEK of Dec. 3-10, 2017

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Sunny, but incredibly windy almost all week with rough water.  Diminishing somewhat this week, but winds will still blow.

Water – Have to pick and chose your spots carefully.  Waters can get rough.

Fishing – When you can get out, still blue water species hovering.

One one of the rare days that the wind wasn’t blowing, our amigo, Roger Thompson, got out and worked that north side of Cerralvo Island near La Reina and dragging a Rapala X-rap 30 deep hooked this hog wahoo that even he had trouble holding up for the photo! Still wahoo and tuna around just tough to get out this past week!

 

One man’s junk is another man’s treasure! With all the wind, the “calm” channel between Las Arenas/ La Ventana and Cerralvo Island is kicking up perfectly for the windsurfers that descend this time of year to catch wind!

 

WIND AND WAVES MAKE FISHING TOUGH

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 3-10, 2017

Not much to say this week.  A good week for snowbirds to enjoy some beach time or shopping or hanging out in a restaurant watching the ocean because it definitely wasn’t the greatest week to be on the water.  The strong devastating winds that plagued firefighters in Southern California with Santa Ana ferocity also blows down the Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez as well.   Borders don’t stop winds!  Maybe not as strong, but enough to kick up waves and chop and big swells, even in the normal calm waters inside La Paz Bay.

So, the window of opportunity for any fishing this week was limited to either hearty (crazy) souls who probably got beat up out there or earlier in the week.  There’s still fish out there.  Not much fishing north of town because the winds are from the north so almost all the fishing is out’ve Muertos Bay / Las Arenas/ Punta Perrico and Cerralvo Island where there’s some limited protection.
Some yellowfin tuna are still hanging out, but live bait is hard to come by.  Dorado are still in the area up to about 15 pounds and we also had some wahoo chase the Rapalas closer to the island.  Some of the wahoo ran 20-40 pounds or larger.  Wind should be diminishing a bit this week.  And town should start getting a bit more crowded as folks come in for the holidays.

ALMOST TIME FOR THE WHALES TO SHOW UP – BOOKING NOW and FILLING FAST

The whales should start showing up in about a month.  Best times are January to early March with mid – February an ideal time to get close to these magnificent animals in the calm waters of Magdalena Bay.  It’s a fantastic family experience.  We can book the whole package for you as a day trip or overnight adventure including lodging, food, transportation and guided trips to the whales from La Paz.  Just e-mail us at:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com .

CHRISTMAS IDEAS!

Just saying…if you’re still stumped about a unique Christmas gift, how about a vacation trip to La Paz this year?  You don’t have to know the dates right now.  We’ll figure it out later!  But what a great surprise to give a customized trip to  the angler on your list or…every year we have fishermen giving a trip “to their wives and girlfriends.”  (No, it’s NOT like giving them a vacuum cleaner!).   And there’s plenty of things to do besides fishing in Baja!  Just tell us what you want to do and how long you want to stay.  Lots of options on activities and hotels!
Makes a great:
  • Wedding Gift
  • Graduation Gift
  • Employee Incentive Gift
  • Retirement Gift
  • Anniversary Gift
 Just let us know and we’ll customize the trip for you and send you a gift certificate too!  Write to:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com .  Or Jilly@tailhunter.com
That’s our story!

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO FISHING REPORT for WEEK of Nov. 26-Dec. 3, 2017

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Nice beach weather.  Sunny and warm, but breezy.  No humidity.  Perfect get-away if it’s raining or snowing back home where you’re from!

Water – Getting cooler and rougher.  Some days very windy.

Fishing – Surprising that we still have bluewater species like dorado and tuna around!

THE BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

Miles Wagner from Colorado Springs CO staying at his dad’s place in Muertos Bay at the Rancho Costa Hotel, put this big-headed bull dorado into the boat just outside Muertos!

Kevin Shiotani from Thousand Oaks CA makes several trips a year to fish in La Paz and always does well. He poses with three nice dorado on the beach at Bahia de los Muertos.

Todd Stumpy and friends found some tuna and dorado fishing with us on a calm day in Muertos. Surprising to find tuna and dorado still around!

Headed for the grill, Captain Jorge stuck this dorado!

Lots of bookings coming in for our upcoming whalewatching season that starts in January and goes through March. Get in touch with us and we’ll set up a whole package for you and the family!  Contact us soon.  Makes a great Christmas present!

LULL BETWEEN HOLIDAYS STILL HOLDS LATE FISH

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay / Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 25-Dec. 3, 2017

 

Not many fisher-folk in town right now. This is that “lull” between the holidays and it’s a really nice time to be in town. Sunny and relatively warm and good beach weather although not always great to be on the water fishing because it can still be windy and rough. But, onshore it’s really pleasant and compared to other places in the world where winter is already hitting, La Paz is a great place to be. Best of all, in-between holidays is one of my favorite times. No one is here! It’s almost like the clock got turned back about 20 or 30 years! It’s really quiet. There’s a few snowbirds around, but not quite yet and the boulevards and streets are empty sometimes and it’s just the ocean and palm trees and a good time to hang out in a restaurant or read a book!

As far as fishing, in between bouts of winds, this past week wasn’t too very bad, but like I said, not many folks are fishing. This coming week, the forecasts call for some very strong double-digit winds.

However, for the folks that did go out, the best fishing was from Muertos Bay where it’s a bit more protected and fish are closer. Given the time of year and winter conditions increasing, surprisingly the fishing isn’t bad. In fact, there’s still some nice dorado hanging out and remarkably some of the dorado are larger than the ones we were getting during the regular season. There’s also some billfish hanging out and scattered tuna here and there.

Besides the winds, the biggest issue is getting live bait as the waters get colder and waves batter the areas where we catch the schools of sardines. So, we’re relying on lures and dead bait like calamari which will become more prevalent as we head into winter. Still, it’s nice to get warm-water species this late in the season.

Inshore, there’s jack crevalle, small cabrilla, sierra, bonito and snapper for the light tackle folks which are a lot of fun.

That’s our story!

Best fishes!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Nov 19-25, 2017

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT FOR Nov. 19-26, 2017

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Getting cooler, but mostly great sunshine with highs in the mid-80’s and nights are in the mid-70’s. Getting breezier, especially the mornings and late afternoons.

Water – Surprisingly warmer than normal, but gradually cooling off

Fishing – If the conditions are right, there’s still blue-water species around like dorado, tuna, billfish and wahoo.

BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

Wow! Right in Muertos Bay, a November sailfish after a season of very few sailfish, young Miles Wagner, got caught and released this sail not far from his dad’s place at Rancho Costa there in the bay.

She just caught and released as striped marlin, but brought this nice fat yellowfin tuna back for dinner, Lisee Ferguson from Colorado Springs CO had a nice week of fishing. She’s there on the beach at Muertos Bay.

Not bad for one day of winter fishing for Peter Wiejaczka who got 4 similar dorado plus lost a wahoo.

Da head fella! It’s Gary Wagner with a yellowfin tuna no doubt to get ready for the dinner menu at his great place in Muertos Bay, Rancho Costa Resort.

LATE SEASON BLUE WATER SPECIES STILL HANGING IN THERE!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Report for Week of Nov. 19-26, 2017

Hope everyone had a spectacular, safe and happy Thanksgiving week!

Down here…

Still surprisingly OK fishing for blue-water pelagic species right now given how late in the season it is. It’s a simple formula. If the winds are blowing and it’s rough…as can be the case this time of year…it’s gonna be tough to fish. Or impossible. Or dangerous.

If the weather is cooperating, then there’s still some tuna, dorado, wahoo and billfish to be had. The biggest issue on those days, might be getting live bait. With the turbulent waters, it crashes on areas where the live bait is often holding which scatters the baits. With this happening every few days, it makes it hard to find the bait when the waters are calm and we have folks out fishing. So, often we’re using dead bait like squid or frozen baits…which seem to work OK.

Weather is nice, if you’re not out on the water and just coming to hang on the beach. It’s what a lot of folks are doing these days. Mostly a lot of snowbirds coming to enjoy the 80 degrees sunshine.

WHALE WATCHING SEASON COMING UP!

The incredible calm waters of Bahia Magdalena

Meet and greet time by the local visitors!

Whalewatching season kicks off in January and will extend through March.  Best time is February as prime time to get close to these awesome creatures in the calm waters of Bahia Magdalena.  It’s a fantastic trip for the entire family and not to be missed.  Let us know and we can set up a trip of a lifetime.  We can put entire packages together.

NOT TOO EARLY FOR 2018 SEASON RESERVATIONS!

Lots of ice chests full of fish went home last season after a great year in 2017. Lots of spots already filling for 2018. Don’t miss out! Check with us!

It’s not too early to be thinking about your 2018 La Paz fishing trip to visit us!  After an incredible 2017 that saw some of the best fishing in years, alot of our anglers went right home and started booking for next year to get their favorite captains and hotel rooms.  Let us know what we can do to set up YOUR 2018 La Paz adventure and we’ll set up the whole package for you.

Also, La Paz fishing trips make great gifts too!  Contact us and we’ll put a package together and a gift certificate too!
