La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for week of Aug. 27-Sept. 2, 2020

DORADO – BIG COVID NEW HIGHLIGHT A GOOD WEEK!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Aug. 27-Sept. 2, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Sherry Cady from Denver CO, had a pretty good week on the dorado. This is one of the larger mahi of the week she caught fishing with Captain Raul with our La Paz fleet.

Big smiles and bucket list fish for Mateo Rangel from Atascadero CA with captain Jorge and his first roosterfish.

Rob Markarian from Camarillo CA with one of the larger dorado of the week. He and his amigo, slammed dorado all week.

One of our funnest regular amigos, John Washington started his week with a nice load of dorado. He’s from Carson City NV and planning to come back to visit next month!

Somewhere behind that mask, Gary from Florida got himself a big roosterfish outside of Bahia Muertos. Thanks to Gary Wagner from Rancho Costa for the photo.

Mike Welch and his bunch of crazy firefighter friends with just a small sample of dorado from their first day. They started with quite a bang..

More dorado! Rob Markarian and Tom Worrell found some nice schools of mahi north of La Paz near Las Cruces.

When Mateo catches a fish he’s always got the big smile!

Kevin and Tom with a nice load of dorado ready to fillet and bring back to La Paz to our FUBAR Cocina Cantina.

 

Good day on the flyrod! Ron and Sherry Cady with another dorado day.

Amigo Gary Wagner with yet another nice rooster for the gallery. The fish was released. Gary owns Rancho Costa there at Muertos.

Tom Worrell and his rather large variety of needlefish! That’s a beast. Espirito Santo Island in the background.

A double-fist of dorado! Ron Cady was fishing north around Las Cruces with Captain Raul and got some nice bulls.

NBA All-Star Clifford Ray was staying out at Rancho Costa for a few days and caught this colorful roosterfish as well as dorado. The rooster was released. Clifford played alot of years with the Bulls and Warriors and won and NBA championship in 1975 wit the Warriors.

Well, knock on wood, we seem to have mostly dodged a three  chubascos. Two weeks ago, it was Guenevere. This week, it was Hernan and Isella. It’s that time of year.

For the storms, however, that came through…

Although they closed the port, neither did more than bring cloudy skies and a few drops of rain. Actually, the cloudy skies were kinda nice if you were on the water as it was alot cooler and more comfortable than blazing sunshine.  Most of the week has been cloudy or given us sporadic sunshine.

It’s been that kind of year, however. Both air and water temps are cooler and it’s made fishing, a bit different than normal.

Even with the cloudy skies, fishing actually seemed to improve. Fortunately, the storms didn’t push alot of wind when they came through so waters stayed pretty flat and the fish seemed to wake up a bit from what they were doing previously.

Big roosterfish are still around off Las Arenas, but it was the dorado schools that seemed to turn on.

Nothing spectacular, but alot of fun 5-20 pound dorado for both our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet and our Tailhunter La Paz fleet. Especially, this past week, we had alot of first-timers and couples so having some great dorado fishing plus add in pargo, cabrilla, jack crevalle, bonito and triggerfish and there could be some really fun action.

Live bait was best and included sardines, cocineros and mackerel.

Not every boat did great every day. There’s still some areas of off-color cold water and without as many boats as normal for all the fishing fleets, it’s hard to cover all the spots every day. However, if they were fishing several days, everyone went home with fish and it definitely was better fishing than the week before.

Still no tuna or wahoo showing which is unusual for this time of year, but I hear there’s some biters to the south of us so hopefully, the schools will come north.

BAHIA MAGDALENA

A couple of our regular good amigos from San Diego, Daniel Bovee and his dad, Jim…who’s already fished with us once this year, took a few days to head out to our Bahia Magdalena operation on the Pacific about 4 hours from La Paz.  First day they fished inside the mangroves for cabrilla, pargo, snook and other inshore species, but the next day went outside to the ridge and really jumped some nice fatty dorado and legit dorado!

 

A table full of good fillets coming up…tuna and dorado!

THE BIG WHOOP!

We’re pretty excited here with the news this week that many of the covid restrictions are being eased.  For many of us, it’s been 5 months of closures and strict protocols.

Initially, back in late March we were in pretty much full closure at RED LEVEL 6.

June 15th, we dropped to ORANGE LEVEL 5.  Better, but still meant only 30% occupancy of hotels, restaurants and businesses.  Beaches and the waterfront Malecon were closed.  Masks still required.  Social distancing maintained at 6 feet.

Well…this past week, the governor reduced us to LEVEL 4 which is great news.

Masks are still required, but that means social distancing was cut in half. Our waterfront Malecon is now open until 11 p.m. at night.  Restaurants do not have to serve food in order to serve drinks.  That means bars can open.

Hotels, restaurants and other businesses can observe 40% occupancy instead of 30%.

Gyms, churches, spas, salons and other “non-essential” businesses can open with some restrictions.  Many have been closed for 5 months.

With restrictions, some of the beaches are now being opened!

The town is pretty elated.  People have to work and eat and it’s nice to have a little more space and places to go!  We just can’t abuse it. The government warns that they could still reverse things if folks don’t respect the rules.  However, they’re optimistic that soon we could be dropped to Level 3 YELLOW.

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of April 6-13, 2020

EASTER WEEK IN LOCKDOWN

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of April 6-14, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

East side of Cerralvo Island is still holding sizeable yellowtail in shallow water not far off the beach like this one that Miles Wagner took. He’s been staying at his dad’s place at Bahia Muertos now for almost a month so still has the ability to go fishing now that his school back in Colorado is shut down.

La Paz resident, Erik Holthouse was with his brother Juan were out at Bahia Muertos with Captain Moncho and found a nice school of dorado.

Gary Wagner who lives there in Bahia Muertos has thankfully kept sending me photos and has the ability to fish very easily there and has been on top of the yellowtail schools all week and for the past month.

Not much if anyone fishing at all except gringos who live in the area or locals. And even then, not much and the waters are empty.  However, the few reports we got this week showed there are still slugger yellowtail around especially the rocky areas around Espirito Santo Island and Cerralvo Island on the northeast side.

 

 

More schools of dorado in the 5-15 pound class also becoming more prevalent as the  waters warm.  There’s a nice spawn of those big mullet snapper (pargo liso) that have shown up.  If you can get one of these horses to the boat in that shallow water, they’ve been 15-20 pounders in the school.

 

Aguamarga on the road to Las Arenas basically says all visitors and you’re not welcome.

More Todos Santos – basically says stay at home. This is not for vacation. There is a national quarantine. Be responsible.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Thank you.

Bahia Muertos is usually covered with folks during Easter Week.
     All hotels are still closed until at least April 30th.  Police and military are enforcing the closure of the malecon and all beaches, especially during Holy Week/ Easter Week which has traditionally been a big beach week for Mexico with many people still ignoring the shelter-in-place laws.
      Authorities are now posting signs, but the local population has also started unilaterally blocking entrances into their areas for tourists, visitors and even some of their own residents, if the residents have been out’ve the area.  In an attempt to block the spread of the virus, Mulege, Loreto, San Xavier, Todos Santos, Pescadero, Cedros Island and others have all blocked their roads.
     Around La Paz, the road to Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay with entrances to the pueblitos where many of the fishermen and their families live including, Aguamarga, San Pedro, Bahia Muertos, Punta Arenas and Los Alamos have blocked their roads.  They’re asking everyone to please stay away and if you leave, they might not let you back in.

HEADLINES FROM MEXICO

Please remember this is a changing situation so anything you read here might have changed by the time you’re reading it.
  • STATISTICALLY SPEAKING, MEXICO’S VIRUS CASES HAVE MORE THAN DOUBLED IN THE LAST WEEK.

 

  • MEXICO REPORTS MORE THAN  5000 CASES WITH OVER 300 DEATHS.  HEALTH OFFICIALS THINK THE UNOFFICIAL COUNT IS PROBABLY OVER 20,000 CASES SINCE NOT MUCH TESTING OR OFFICIAL REPORTING IS GOING ON.

 

  • IN THE SPAN OF A WEEK, BAJA HAS BECOME THE #1 HIGHEST RATE OF VIRUS INCIDENT (PER CAPITA) THAN ANY OTHER PLACE IN MEXICO BEHIND ONLY MEXICO CITY.  BAJA HAS ABOUT 500 CASES AND HAS SEEN 20 DEATHS.

 

  • IT WAS A VERY SLOW EASTER WEEK WHICH IS TRADITIONALLY PACKED WITH LOCAL AND FOREIGN TOURISTS.

 

  • DESPITE THE QUARANTINE LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MILITARY HAD TO STILL CHASE MANY PEOPLE OFF THE BEACHES

 

  • ONE BEACH IN OAXACA THAT IS USUALLY COVERED WITH BATHERS IS NOW FULL OF CROCODILES THAT HAVE RETURNED AFTER DECADES OF ABSENCE.

 

  • WITH NO COORDINATED QUARANTINE PLAN MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL IGNORING THE RESTRICTIONS. THOUSANDS PACKED SHOULDER-TO-SHOULDER AT THE MEXICO CITY FISH MARKET TO PURCHASE FISH FOR GOOD FRIDAY

 

  • MUCH TO THE DISTRESS OF RETAIL GROCERY STORES, MANY VENDORS HAVE TURNED TO SELLNG PRODUCE, MEAT AND OTHER ITEMS FROM THE SIDE-OF-THE-ROAD AT PRICES HUGELY BELOW RETAIL

 

  • HEALTH CARE WORKERS ARE REFUSING TO WORK BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF MEDICAL EQUIPMENT SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY

 

  • SADLY, HEALTH CARE WORKERS ARE ALSO BEING ATTACKED IN SOME CITIES BECAUSE PEOPLE THINK THE HEALTH CARE WORKERS WILL CARRY THE DISEASE INTO THE COMMUNITY.

 

  • SANITATION STATIONS FOR HAND WASHING HAVE BEEN SET UP IN VARIOUS CITIES.  HOWEVER, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN STEALING THE SANITATION STATIONS.

 

  • MANY CITIES AHVE ENACTED “DRY LAWS” PROHIBITING LIQUOR SALES OF ANY KIND.  CABO SAN LUCAS INITIALLY WAS PART OF THAT GROUP, BUT HAS SINCE CHANGED THE RULE ONLY RESTRICTING THE HOURS FOR ALCOHOL SALES. “PEOPLE NEED ALCOHOL TO STAY CALM DURING THE STRESS.”

 

  • BREWERIES LIKE CORONA/MODELO WERE SHUT DOWN TWO WEEKS AGO DEEMED “NON-ESSENTIAL” BUSINESS. THE SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE ALLOWED THEM TO RE-OPEN LAST WEEK…FOR ONE DAY…THEN THE SECRETARY OF HEALTH OVER-RODE THE EDICT AND SHUT THE BREWERIES DOWN AGAIN.

 

Hope you all had a good, safe, and healthy Easter all things considered.  Jill and I are still stuck in the states. There’s no flights from where we have our house and there’s nothing to go back to at the moment in La Paz.  No fishermen.  No fishing.  Our restaurant is closed.  The hotel we live at is closed.  So, we’re staying put like so many of you and still grateful and blessed to have a roof and food and yes…even toilet paper and paper towels!

After almost a month of staying away from family, we finally had a little get together with our two kids and two grandkids Easter Sunday for a little chicken on the barbecue.  Nothing spectacular.  Just good to see them after so long and not be talking on Facetime.  It was Jill’s birthday this past weekend and we were all supposed to be in Hawaii for the weekend, but that understandably got canceled.

We are eating too much, watching more TV than ever, catching up on reading and I’m getting more sleep than ever in my life.  Usually, by this time of year, we’re getting 3-4 hours of sleep a night and now, there’s no alarm jolting me awake at 4 a.m. to put the fishermen out.   But, we’re still working hard trying to keep everyone abreast of what’s happening and/or calming folks down who don’t know what’s going on.    Hopefully, we’ll get to the other side of this sooner rather than later.

Thank you to everyone who writes to us.

I can tell alot of you are at home and on your cellphones or computers. I must get about 100 jokes, memes and videos every day.  I just can’t watch them all or respond to them all but thanks for thinking of us!

In the meantime, please be well, stay well, stay healthy!

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Feb. 16-23, 2020

YELLOWTAIL and DORADO…IF YOU CAN GET OUT!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 16-23, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Our amiga, Donna Thompson, who aced some nice yellowtail using live mackerel on the east side of Cerralvo Island.

Winter winds and chilly breezes pretty much domininated the past week.  Although not really much of anyone fishing during the winter months, we had a few folks scheduled to go out this week fishing as well as whale watching over on the Pacific side all set and ready to go.  However, we had to either cancel because it was too rough or re-schedule.

Had to cancel trips this week because of the winds!

Most were folks in town for a few days and not hardcore anglers.  They were just looking for a day on the water and wanted to give fishing a try.  Not many were too upset about staying onshore rather than braving the waves or else they had other days to re-schedule.

 

A few anglers did find a few small windows of opportunity to fish between bouts of wind.  If you had mackerel or got lucky on a trolled Rapala, the eastern side of Cerralvo Island was holding some nice forktail yellows.  These yellowtail ran about 10-25 pounds, but that can be a long run over there and you gotta scoot really fast if the winds kick up.

 

Also, a few schoolie-side dorado were hit here-and-there which could produce some nice surface action with fish about 10 pounds or so.  As well, a few snapper and pargo pretty much round out the scant moments of fishing.

Town has been packed for Carnaval which runs from Feb. 20-26th with pretty much a good portion of the waterfront closed down with booths, rides, fireworks, parades and huge concert stages every single day.  So, it’s pretty lively in town this week.

Parades every day! Food, fireworks, concerts and more!

Best place to watch the parade on the waterfront is from our 3 story Tailhunter Restaurant.!

Thanks to Jay Statman for this video clip of one of the parades!

TAILHUNTER CALENDAR

Our next show will be the 76th Annual Fred Hall Fishing and Boating Show at the Long Beach Convention Center Mar. 4-8.  This is the BIG ONE! 5 days of madness and fun!  Here’s a link for more info:

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Feb. 9-16, 2020

ANGLERS FIND SMALL OPPORTUNITIES DESPITE WINDS

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 9-16, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

 

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Just a great photo! They got blown off the first day but hung in there and went out despite waves and strong winds (check out Jan’s hair and Art’s hoodie). However, first-timer Jan Paisley and Art Flippin from Colorado went out dragging a Rapala hoping something would bite and this big 70-pound yellowfin tuna chomped the line! They were just off Punta Arenas with Cerralvo Island in the background. Surprise catch for this time of year!

Our good amigos, Donna and Roger Thompson from La Ventana found some mackerel on the east side of Cerralvo Island and hung some nice yellowtail before the macks disappeared and the winds came back up.

Colorful dorado just outside Punta Perrico for Jan. The fish was taken to our Tailhunter Restaurant to be cooked up!

Escaping -30 degree weather up in Alberta, Canada, Sheri Maitland found sunshine and a school of dorado like this one just inside La Paz Bay on one of the calmer days.

Unusual fish for this time of year because dorado are warm water fish, Brad Bowdon got this bull fishing out’ve La Paz. Brad’s from Canada.

That’s a tasty barred pargo for first-timer, Jan Paisley from Colorado with a big smile!

It looks a bit choppy out there and chilly, but Stu Maitland has a firm gaff in this nice dorado.

It was a weird unusual, but not unusual week, if that makes sense. Yes, it was typically windy as if often the case this time of year and “cold” on top of it (by Mexico standards!). Locals were bundled up while tourists visiting La Paz for sunshine were walking around in shorts and t-shirts.

However, as far as the wind was concerned, it blew hard some areas some days and less so in other areas. And, of course, it affected the fishing. Some folks fishing one area pretty much got blown off the water or had to cancel trips. Others found some decent windows to get lines wet, even if only temporarily before winds shifted and the waves just got too rough and choppy.

Fortunately, this time of the year, there aren’t that many folks fishing.

However, for the few folks out that were able to get on the water…even for a short time, there were some decent catches.

For our anglers fishing the Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Cerralvo Island areas, there were the occasispeonal dorado and we even got a surprising chunky tuna that ran about 70 pounds taken on a trolled Rapala. On the East side of Cerralvo Island, there was a quick jag of yellowtail that ran 15-25 pounds, especially if you got into the live mackerel that temporarily schooled up.

Inshore, pargo, cabrilla and jack crevalle provided some fun entertainment.

For our anglers that were able to get out of the Bay and head north towards Espirito Santo Island, some yellowtail were also found, but it was pretty rough getting out there. Fortunately, there were some school-sized dorado just inside the bay that could be caught with most fish going about 10 pounds. But, it was stil pretty rough out there.

And more…BAHIA MAGDALENA!

A table full of great fillets coming up including pargo, snapper, corvina and grouper for our amiga Verda Boyd after her first day fishing the mangroves.

Another nice pargo in the boat caught by Natalie Nazareno. You can see the mangroves in the background.

We sent some anglers out with our Bahia Magdalena outfit. It was also too windy to fish outside the bay and work the ridge for yellowtail and grouper. However, inshore among the mangroves in the shallows, the fishing was spectacular. They got almost a dozen species! These included grouper, several species of pargo, snapper and seabass as well as corvina all on light tackle.

Jorge Romero, sporting his Santa beard, pulled this grouper out’ve the tangle of mangrove roots.

Tim Zimmer with a hard fighting pargo that ate a hooked shrimp.

All by herself! Bella Nazareno hooked and fought all of her fish by herself including this fat pargo!

One day…lots of variety!

Captain Rigo poses with Verda and another pargo for the cooler!

Also, the whales have been late arrivals for the whalewatching season, but more whales are finally showing up in Bahia Magdalena not far from where we’re fishing these days.  Let us. know and we can set you up with a great whalewatching trip.

ROAD TOUR TAILHUNTER 2020 – THANK YOU SALT LAKE CITY!

Just finished the Western Hunt and Conservation Show at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.  It was 4 crazy days of madness and fun!  We just wanted to give a shout-out to all our Utah folks for the great hospitality and all the Tailhunter Nation members who came out to see us!    We had some of the best days of any of the 5 shows we’ve done this year.  Reservations to come fish with us in 2020 were off-the-charts and we’re looking forward to all the visits!  Thanks to everyone!

Next up…the grand-daddy show of the West Coast… It’s the 74th Annual Fred Hall Fishing and Boating Show at the Long Beach Convention Center March 4-8!  Come see us.  Click the link below!

Long Beach – March 4-8, 2020

CARNIVAL LA PAZ – Feb. 21-26!

If you’re headed to La Paz, don’t forget that Carnival starts Feb. 21 and goes through the 26th with lots of parades, fireworks, food and major partying!  The Tailhunter Restaurant on the Malecon is a great place to catch all the parades!

 

That’s our story!  Hope you had a super Valentine’s Day!

WINDS GIVE US SOME SMALL BREAKS!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 26- Feb. 2, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST OF THE STORY…

Colorful dorado for Captain Jorge giving Jen Martinez a hand with the gaff.

Mike and Jen Martinez from Washington had just one day to squeeze in fishing and they picked a day when the winds lay flat and a few dorado put some bend in the rods.

 

As expected, we had the typical winter wind, chill and waves. That’s to be expected this time of year, when not many folks are fishing or even on the water.

However, we had a few windows of opportunity, especially earlier in the week when winds laid down enough for us to get some folks out to get some lines wet. In fact, we had folks fishing with our Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay Fleet and, for the first time of the year, with our La Paz Fleet. Still a bit chilly, but at least the wind diminished enough to head out!

Captain Boli pulls out with Sherry and Stu Maitland from Canada. Note the flat waters!

Surprisingly, despite it being winter, we got into some decent dorado biters. These are WARM water fish! But, here it is, the end of January and some 8-15 pound schoolies were on the chew. In fact, our La Paz boats found some nice jags of fish near the mouth of the bay where the water was warmer and loaded on limits in about an hour!

WHAT? Dorado in January? And limits just inside the bay? Wow!

This was total bonus fishing because many of the folks fishing were first-timers and visiting from chillier areas of the U.S. and Canada.

In addition, there were some nice schools of bonito to keep rods bent including some of the tasty blue and white bonito. Plus, there were catches of cabrilla, snapper, pargo and jack crevalle to round out the fish boxes.

Scott and Lynn Pichette are usually in negative freezing weather this time of the year in Canada where they run a hunting guide service. But, they were able to catch some warm sunshine and even some fish while fishing both La Paz (dorado) and Las Arenas/ Muertos where they hooked some white/blue bonito and a cabrilla.

Other than fishing, most of the action on the water are folks coming to town to either swim with the whalesharks or to do whalewatching as the whales are just starting to arrive up at Bahia Magdalena.

The grey whales have just started showing up in Bahia Magdalena. Ask us about day and overnight trips!

Whalesharks are now in the bay in the shallow water just a few hundred yards from the malecon. We’re running trips to go swim with the whalesharks now. Ask us about this incredible adventure!

TAILHUNTER 2020 ROAD TOUR TAKES US TO PORTLAND

We’ve been on the road now over a month and had some incredible fun shows in Denver…Sacramento…and Seattle (Puyallup).  And now, by the time you’re reading this, we’ll be in Portland, Oregon for one of the largest shows on the West Coast.

The Pacific Northwest Sportsmans Show will be at the Portland Expo Center Feb. 5-9 (Wednesday to Thurday) for a huge outdoor show featuring exhibitors from all over the world with great stuff for the whole family including fishing, hunting, travel, boating, canoeing, kayaking, flyfishing, equipment, off-road, RV’s and more!

Come by and let’s set up your 2020 La Paz Fishing Vaction.  We’re filling fast!  Don’t wait!

Here’s more info.  Just click the link:

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Dec. 8-15, 2019

A QUIET TOWN IN LOWER BAJA

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 8-15, 2019

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Not too different even in Mexico! Christmas scenes like this one with kids lining up for visits with Santa and their favorite cartoon characters downtown La Paz.

Manger scenes for Christmas in La Paz

 

Town is kinda quiet right now!  It’s that lull between the holidays and not many folks in town right now except for some snowbirds and kiteboarders and windsurfers taking advantage of the winter breezes.   Not really many folks on the water as this is off-season for fishing, but even then, most folks in town are just enjoying the sunshine and getting ready for Christmas.  Definitely seems like you can already smell the tamales cooking on the streets!  But, lights are up and folks are doing Christmas shopping and that’s kind of it.

 

Some action for fishing has mostly been inshore.  There’s a decent bite over the rocky spots of cabrilla up to about 5 pounds plus snapper and pargo.  All great eating fish.  The hard-pullers include some nice jack-crevalle running up to about 10 pounds plus good activity on bonito.   Really hard to get a complete fishing picture when not many folks are fishing.  It was too bad because this past week was one of the better weeks for weather and minimal winds.

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of March 24-31, 2019

IS WINTER FINALLY FINISHED WITH US?

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of March 24-31, 2019

The Mexican Minute Video Report

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

Fishing brother Rod Brown from Alaska and Jeff Brown from Minnesota get together once a year in La Paz to fish with us and scored limits of yellowtail and other species fishing north of La Paz near Espirito Santo Island.

Gary Wagner, owner of Rancho Costa, rocked this big thick yellowtail on the north end of Cerralvo island on the east side with a live mackerel.

That’s a trophy! Big tasty cabrilla headed no doubt for the dinner table caught by Miles Wagner from Colorado Springs CO.

Our own Captain Joel has a big smile posing with Jeff Brown and some of the limits of yellowtail they caught and lost many others in the rocks.

Yes! Roosterfish are starting to show up! Right there in Muertos Bay, Miles was working live sardines on light tackle and had a blast catching and releasing these smaller early-season roosters. The big boys should be close behind!

Nothing better than light tackle fishing and big fish. Check out this pretty cabrilla that Russ Whitmarsh nailed on a bass rod just close to the rocks where these guys hang out. Nice catch!

What a difference a week or two makes!

 

We’ve gone from some of the harshest and toughest winter fishing in a long time several weeks ago to some of the nicest conditions and fishing so far this season.  Still not completely up-to-speed and I’d be crazy to say we’re completely done with winter and the pesky winds, but this past week was sure a nice time to be on the water.

 

With the first true week of springtime and temperatures in the high 80’s to low 90’s. the winds weren’t completely done with us and there were some episodes for several days, but overall, Mother Nature was good to our fishermen for once.

 

With some perfect candy-sized mackerel for baits for both our Tailhunter La Paz and Las Arenas fleet, the big story were the yellowtail.  They popped up in several places including the upper east-side of Cerralvo Island; south point of Cerralvo and Punta Perrico.  We also had quite a bite going around the high spots around Espirito Santo Island.

 

Most of the fish weren’t huge, but that’s because so many of the fish were hovering and feeding in shallow waters close to the rocks, shore or over structure.  Lots of the bigger 30-40 pound mossbacks threw hooks or broke lines in the rocks plus quite a few missed bites!  But the ones that were landed were respectable powerful 20-25 pound fish.

I”ll let our amigo Rod Brown tell it:

“We had one of our best La Paz fishing days ever today. The yellowtail started biting as soon as we started fishing in the morning and were still biting when we quit a little before 1:00 – ran out of mackerel. We landed 10 medium to large yellowtail, missed a lot of good strikes, and lost some in the rocks. They are STRONG fish and bent 0ur heavy poles in a 90 degree arc and made several powerful runs each. Good thing we ran out of bait. We were buggered and Joel had to get home to watch his daughters play football. Some largish swells, but a beautiful day.”

Rod Brown from Alaska with smiling Captain Joel

 

Not to be completely outdone, we also had some incredible cabrilla fishing tight inside to the cliffs and rocks with some trophy-sized fish being landed on bait, jigs and slow-trolled Rapalas and YoZuris as well as pargo and assorted rockfish.

Our amigo, Rod Brown again:

“Another great fishing day. The yellowtail weren’t biting at first, but we landed 7 large barred pargo and 4 large cabrilla. They immediately  dive for the rocks and are strong, so we lost a lot of them – and a lot of fishing tackle. Around 11 the yellowtail started biting and we landed 3 nice ones. By noon we had used all our mackerel (62 of them) and spent an hour fishing with spinning gear and sardines for smaller  yellow pargo along the shore. Caught several of them.”

 

We also saw action on lots of bonito on light tackle, jack crevalle and even some early season roosterfish!  All-in-all some solid biters and some of the best variety of the young season!

HAPPY TRAILS 2019

Well, we finally came to the end of another awesome road trip.  Our 25th year going from one show to the other.  This year 12 states and 11 incredible shows meeting and talking to so many awesome folks and old friends!

Thanks to everyone who came by to chat and all the hospitality and also all of you who booked with us to fish in La Paz with us in 2019.  We’re are ready to fish!  Bring it on.  We still have some spots open so get in touch with us, but judging from our bookings this year, we’re gonna have a bang-up year!

Let’s get fishing!

 

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 Dec. 9-16, 2018

NICER CONDITIONS PRODUCE FISH

La Paz- Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 9-16, 2018

 

THE MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

SHORT ATTENTION SPAN WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Pleasant week for the most part.  Low in the 60’s and highs in the high 70’s.  Mostly sunny.  Winds gave us a break earlier in the week but got stronger (and colder) as the week went on.

Water – Choppier and rougher later in the week

Fishing – More blue water species early in the week when the winds were down and it was calmer.  More inshore and rock fish as weather got rougher and we had to fish closer in.

Species Caught This Week:  dorado, tuna, cabrilla, seabass, bonito, snapper, jack crevalle

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Gary Wagner, owner of Rancho Costa there at Muertos, hooked 4 dorado and got 2 to the boat. He had a wahoo come off and he had a tuna on for over an hour before it came unbuttoned. Looks cold!

Laura Hernandez from San Diego got out a few days earlier in the week and got into the dorado. Later, as conditions changed, some huge sierra.

Not too bad a week, for the weather.  It was just cold (by our La Paz standards!).  Tourists were still running around in shorts while locals donned long pants and jackets!  Likewise, earlier in the week, winds laid down long enough to get boats out and fortunately for our type of fishing, no one really had to go out very far.

 

There’s still some schools of dorado around with some nicer 15-20 pounders mixed in.  Very surprising given the time of year.  Along with the dorado, some tuna were also hooked and a wahoo did bite one of the lines but came unbuttoned which is an encouraging sign (that it bit, not that it came off!).   Plus, add in the usual bonito and way too many needlefish.  All-in-all, not too bad.

 

As the week went on, winds came up again and the waters changed resulting in more restricted fishing with colder-water species like sierra, jack crevalle, cabrilla and snapper biting. Hard to know when not that many folks are fishing.  Most of the visitors to town are snowbirds just looking for sunshine and an escape from even colder places.  Locals are all getting ready for Christmas.

WHALES ON THE WAY!

Our annual whale-watching season is almost upon us.  Migrating yearly from the Bering Sea by Alaska, the whales are on their way to Baja to mate, give birth and hang out in the warm lagoons of the Pacific.  We have daily and overnight trips booking fast.  Contact us for more details for a great family trip!

SPREADING THE CHEER

Many of you know that my wife, Jilly, has had a program for five years whereby Tailhunter Outreach program collects clothes, toys, sporting goods, school supplies, medical supplies and more for needy folks and communities in and around La Paz. It was originally started after Hurricane Odile crashed into us in 2014, but the program just kept growing.   To date, our Tailhunter amigos and brought down over 3 tons of good that we distribute throughout the year!  Jill also has a scholarship program to keep kids in school as well.

Everyone’s favorite guy…Jorge Romero

 

This past week our own, Jorge and Sandra Romero donated almost 200 pounds of toys to the kids of Los

Planes (near Muertos Bay where many of our captains and their families live).  With the assistance of Gary Wagner and his crew at Rancho Costa, all these kids got something for Christmas!  Thanks, Jorge and Sandra!

Lining up the gifts

Lots of kids!

Have a great week!

That’s our story.

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Oct. 21-28, 2019

FISH & WEATHER MAKE US WORK HARDER

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 21-28, 2018

Mexican Minute Video Fishing Report

Short Attention Span Week-At-A-Glance

Weather – No shortage of sunshine.  It’s really pleasant to be in town right now .  Daytime temps in the mid-80’s with a breeze.  Nights in the low 70’s.  However, not always great to be on the water as Hurricane Willa (hundreds of miles to the south) didn’t mess with us, it did send up some huge swells and strong wind that caused us to shut down our Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay Fishing for 2 days.  Then, increasing northern winds have made it difficult at time fishing out’ve La Paz.  (Also makes it tough to find bait!).  The seasons are changing.

Water – The increasing winds are lowering the water temperatures and the water is getting more green although there’s still some great blue water around . It’s all in transition.

Fishing – Maybe it was a combination of variables.  Erratic winds.  A full moon.  Big swells.  All of it contributed to a tougher week of fishing.  I’ve seen worse.  But I have also seen better.  We had to work hard to get fish sometimes.  Moreso than normal. More cooler water species showing up.  Fewer blue-water fish around.  Also, the ability to find and catch bait is affected by the weather.  Harder to catch bait means harder to catch fish.

Caught This Week – tuna, wahoo, dorado, jack crevalle, lots of bonito, needlefish, roosterfish, pargo liso, cabrilla, triggerfish, dog-tooth snapper, pompano, palometa.

Outlook for Coming Week – Probably alot more of the same.  Off-season imminent.

 

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

Our Montana friend, Darrel Zauner, hooked into a few of these beasts, but finally got a big dog-tooth to the boat!

Gary Pilkington has been visiting us for years and it was good to see him finally get his first wahoo!

Lots of “firsts” this week like this good-looking roosterfish caught by Mike Hanson from Grants’ Pass, Oregon while fishing with Captain Gerardo. The fish is alot bigger than it looks. Both Mike and Captain Gerardo are abut 6’3″ tall! The fish was released.

Outdoor writer, lecturer, author and TV show host, Scott Haugen finally came to visit us from his home in Oregon and put the hurt on this sizeable wahoo using a purple Rapala.

Some good eats here! Two different kinds of pargo caught by Tanner Millspaugh and his dad, Travis, from Washington state.

Two of our new favorite amigos, Debbie Arvin and Lynn Murphy from Colorado, with Captain Armando and some pretty yellowfin tuna.

Great colors on Chris Aiellos, dorado that he caught fishing with our La Paz fleet

A solid day to sea-the-least! Mike and dad Gary Pilkington with a rack of tuna, a dorado plus a wahoo! Grand slam!

 

First-time visitor from Colorado, in rough water, Don Vanzo got a legit bull dorado on the gaff.

That’s the right kind! John Morgenstern all the way from South Dakota got another tuna into the panga and a great photo!

HI Paula! Well done, amiga! Nice bull dorado!

Alaska in the house! John Daley with Captain Moncho and alot of tuna meat headed to the freezers.

Just too pretty of a photo. This is Jae Shin from Alaska with a roosterfish on the flyrod in Bahia Muertos.

Here’s Jae’s roosterfish caught on the flyrod . Great fun on such light tackle! The rooster was released. That’s Bahia Muertos water.

She’s an author and lecturer and teaches classes in outdoor cooking! Tiffany Haugen poses great with a wahoo in the blue waters near Punta Arenas.

Robbie Boyd and his dad, Bill, and Captain Jorge display a pretty pargo liso an a couple of yellowfin tuna on the beach at Muertos Bay.

He looks grim, but Brian is actually a nice guy with two handfuls of dorado and tuna caught with our Tailhunter La Paz fleet.

You’re kidding! Greg Garrison and Nic Huff sport THREE big wahoo from a day of fishing right off the rocks at Punta Arenas.

Celebrating Lollie Milano’s retirement, Dana Milano came down for the week and got themselves some nice yellowfin going on ice.

Stan Andre gives a little kiss to his dorado he got while fishing with our Tailhunter La Paz fleet.

Brian’s got another dorado to add to the box! Despite some slow spots, he and his amigos took a nice load of fish home!

Gary Wagner loves light tackle and took this feisty rooster in the shallows in front of his place at Bahia Muertos. The fish was released.

Scott Haugen knows how to pose with a fish…like this colorful dorado.

Nic had never fished before but scored a number of highly covered wahoo!

I think that’s Brian behind the mask with another dorado.

Tough fish to pull out’ve the rocks, but Scott Haugen did the trick after 5 of them got the best of him and broke him off.

Table full ‘o’ tuna for Mike and Kirsten Hanson from Oregon!

Great shot of Mike Pilkington’s first wahoo. Caught with Captain Pancho driving the rig. Nice fish, Mike!

They don’t have many mahi mahi in S. Dakota which is where John Morgenstern will be taking these fillets!

First dorado for Ms. Tiffany. She is such a gamer!

It was a hit-or-miss week of fishing as the warm water season winds down and cooler conditions move in.  We often had to work a lot harder for our fish this past week than we’ve been used to during the season but everyone got fish.  It just wasn’t as easy or as plentiful in some cases.

 

It was erratic.  One boat would find fish and a boat next to them would struggle.  We’d look for tuna and only find dorado.  We’d chase dorado and get dog-tooth snapper.  A boat trying to pargo or cabrilla would hook a wahoo!  Just no rhyme or reason.  One day our Las Arenas fleet would be hot and the next day our La Paz fleet would have the hot bite!

 

A lot of it had to do with the weather.  Winds are blowing stronger and coming from all directions at different times of the day.  It’s cooling off the water temps.  It’s clouding up the water.  It’s making bait harder and harder to find as waves crash into the shallow areas disturbing the bait schools.

 

The big hurricane Willa that hammered far south of us, did not do us any damage.  The sun burned brightly every day.  But it did throw up some big wave and southerly winds that forced us to cancel two days of fishing with our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet.  As the winds increase from the north, I imagine there will be more days that are tough to fish as the season diminishes.

 

However, there was a good jag of wahoo this week.  Some boats got multiple strikes and landed several.

 

The tuna were a little more scarce, but little spots of tuna popped up if you could jump on them fast enough.  The schools were very often busting water, but were hesitant to eat or would only eat quickly and move on so you only had a small window to get in on the bite.  The full moon might have had something to do with that.

 

Again, we had unusually huge dog-tooth snapper and pargo liso come up  off the shallows busting rods (really!) and 150-pound test.  We got about 1 out’ve every 8 or 9 hook-ups on these tough fish.

 

Dorado are still around.  Mostly in the 10-15 pound class.

ON a PERSONAL NOTE…

 

This is been an emotional roller-coaster week.  Earlier in the week, my dad passed away.  He was 91-years-young.

Many of you knew him.  He loved to fish.  He loved reading this fishing report.  Thankfully to Jill, she jammed a ticket back to Los Angeles in my hand on a “gut feeling” and told me to get back to see him NOW and she kicked me outta La Paz.

I got to spend a few hours with him and hold him for a bit and after spending most of the night with him told him I’d be back in the morning to have breakfast with him.  Little did I know that would be the last. The next morning, he took a breath and let go and slipped quietly and peacefully away.

I had to get back to La Paz and three days later…talk about the circle of life, we welcomed Hannah James Reid our 2nd grandchild to our daughter Jessie Reid and Brian Reid.  Whoo-hoooo!!!

The circle of life keeps rolling!

Just wanted to reach out to thank the hundreds of you that sent condolences to both Jill and I and also all of you sending congratulations.  We do not pass through life alone.  Glad to be on the path with so many of you.  God bless!

That’s our story!
