La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Oct. 9-16, 2021

DORADO CHEW AS WEATHER CHANGES

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 9-16, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Triple catch. Daryl Martz with sons Allan and Dale show off some of their dorado caught with our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet.

 

One of the larger dorado models of the week! Good amigo, Dave Lindell, got this one out’ve Bahia Muertos. Dave lives in Pendleton, OR.

Julie and daugther, Kendall Millspaugh from Washington have been fishing with us for years and did pretty well on the dorado and pargo waiting on the fillet table!

His 2nd trip with us this year, fun amigo, John Washington from Carson City NV with captain Gerardo with dorado, palometa and pargo waiting for the ice chest.

Over the years, we’ve watched young Tanner Millspaugh grow up and now he’s ready to hit high school! Nice bull, Tanner!

Never a dull moment when Wiley Randolph is visiting us. He was fishing with Chito when he got this dorado.

Mike Hanson got one of the larger roosters of the week just off Punta Perrico. The fish was released.

Barry Matlack just had time to squeeze in one day of fishing and it paid off with a nice day of dorado including this legit bull mahi.

It takes two! Debbie and Steve Millspaugh have some nice dorado to show off and take home to Washington.

Unfortunately, because of the weather, Jacob and dad, Jeffrey Cooper only got in one good day of fishing, but had some good action with dorado, pargo and snapper. Jacob just returned from his mission and it was their first time visiting us. Only with the weather had cooperated more.

Allan Martz doesn’t see many fish where he lives in Boston!

A good day for Tanner and Travis Millspaugh. On the beach at Muertos Bay. Good to have the family back again. Always great to see them.

Ceci has way too much fun. One day fishing produced dorado and a marlin with Captain Alfredo.

Daryl Martz finally got his roosterfish for a quick photo and release.

Good to have these guys back to see us after a bit of absence! Jim Adair and Brad Baker had a good day on the dorado schools.

MIke and Kirsten Hanson from Oregon with Captain Gerardo got quite a bit of variety including dorado, palometa, sierra, cabrilla and pargo!

Another one for Tanner headed into the fish box!

Most of the week, it was pretty good fishing.

But, you can really tell things are changing sooner than normal. Air temps are cooler. There are more and stronger winds, especially from the north. The water is rougher and colder. The fishing and the fish are changing.

There are still warm water species. In fact, it was a pretty solid week of dorado fishing for both our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet and our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet although the better dorado fishing was with our La Paz fleet. Fish between 5 and 20 pounds were the norm and limits were not unusual. Fish could be found in a wide variety of areas and you could have a slow bite all day and then hit the spot and fill the fish box in one stop. Or, you might get single and double fish all day through the end of the day.

Billfish like marlin and sailfish are still around, but it was a slower week on these two species. After an incredible year with more billfish than I have ever seen, perhaps this is the last hurrah for sailfish and marlin.

The biggest indicator of change are, of course, the fish. More cooler water fish are showing up in the counts. Sierra, amberjack, yellowtail, pargo liso are usually fish we see in December or early spring. However, it seems every week we’re getting more of these types of fish.

It’s hard to put a finger on the fishing picture looking back this week. Three of the days were a write off.

Tropical Storm Pamela came up and dropped alot of rain on us. So, one day we had to cut the fishing short as it started getting too rough. The next day, we had to cancel all trips. The port captain shut down the port for safety reasons with 7-9’ swells and breaking waves slamming outside. After the storm, the weather remained erratic and winds continued to tear up the water. Bait became difficult to find. We had some of the worst fishing days of the year, where we had boats out, but it probably would have been best to just stay off the water. Just being honest.

The coming week shows no weather disturbances…so far. But we’ll keep an eye. Nevertheless, there’s no doubt that things are changing and getting cooler.

That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Oct. 2-8, 2021

COLD WATER/ WARM WATER SPECIES MIXING IN NOW

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 2-9, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

 

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

Washington amigo, Fred Cruz had quite a great few days fishing with us taking a number of species including sailfish, marlin, roosterfish and others like this dorado taken north of La Paz Bay.

Honeymoon first-timers, Lilia and Dave Brown from Wrangell, Alaska hooked this large striped marlin just off Punta Arenas on live bait. They donated all the meat to the pueblo.

Captain Raul with Lisa Cruz and a big bull her first day out. She had 4 banner days on the water with us.

That’s right, John, flex-up! Especially after a great day like this on ultra- light tackle with big sierra, dorado, pargo and snapper. John McLucas has fished with us for many years from the San Francisco Bay area.

Just a pretty photo on so many levels of this roosterfish with Deana Wilson from Montana and Captain Pancho. The fish was caught just off the rocks near Bahia Muertos and quickly released.

Steve Manney has fished many years with us, but had his son-in-law Nat come down this year as well. Good start to the fishing week with dorado and sierra on the rack.

From N. Carolina, 84-year-old Duane Ottman was visiting us for the first time and battled this big striped marlin with Captain Gerardo. Great colors. Sorry, you can’t see Duane’s smiling face!

Good to see Kirsten and Mike Hanson back down here with us again. They were out with Captain Gerardo and got quite a variety of reef fish for the cooler.

Fred Cruz with his sailfish and captain Gerardo. Great day on the water with a number of species. The sail was released.

Easy to smile looking at this photo of a very happy Lilia Brown and another dorado in the boat!

Another of our good Washington amigos, Bob Larson has himself a big dorado, some tasty sierra and some big fat triggerfish.

Captain Joel gives Larry Wilson a hand with his sailfish for a quick photo. This was Larry’s first billfish. Note the tanker in the background. The fish was hooked literally just a few hundred yards in front of the La Paz Malecon.

Captain Armando and Pete Walker share a laugh and photo with the day’s catch. Lots of sierra again this week. More than I have ever seen.

It was a slow day, but the one saving catch for Brad Baker was his first sailfish. He donated all of the fish.

On his honeymoon, Sean Price spent a day fishing with our Las Arenas fleet and got some great sierra, pargo and triggerfish to take home as well as some dorado meat as well.

 

She’s the best! Sharon Virgin from Montana was great to have down this past week and holds up one of her dorado.

Hi Debbie! Not a bad day of dorado fishing for Debbie Millspaugh visiting us for the first time.

Two funny amigos from Washington that visit us each year and always a pleasure. John Stendara and Bill Bigelman posing with their catch at Bahia Muertos.

Somewhere behind the roosterfish comb is a very happy Lisa Cruz. Captain Gerardo helps out. The fish was released.

Two of our Canadian amigos, Save and Luke got a nice batch of triggerfish, sierra and snapper.

 

Bill Lee from San Francisco mugs with Johnny Mc Lucas and their catch.

Captain Gerardo was on fire this week and has Fred Cruz’s striped marlin for the photo.

Some incredible colors and pattern on this dorado. Wow! Dave Brown poses with another mahi for the box.

More of our Canadian amigos with Captain Arcangel and an assorted catch.

Captain Victor gets into the weekly gallery with Bob Larson showing dorado, sierra and triggerfish.

Whoa! Check out the head of this big bull dorado that Lisa caught!

 

Lilia and Dave had a super day on the water fishing out’ve La Paz this particular day. All the fish were donated.

 

 

It wasn’t a bad week of fishing. Overall, it was actually pretty good. For lack of a better word, it was just “erratic”. It was unpredictable.

Some folks had great days of fishing. Others really had to work hard to get fish. Same day. Same spots. Same bait. Same everything. Things changed from day to day or even hour-to-hour. Totally un-predictable.

Some of our regulars…some of our very experience fishermen found picky fishing at best. Conversely, some of our first-timers or novices just crushed the fishing.

Some days, it was dorado. Next day no dorado. Then billfish. Then no billfish. At times, the best we could do was go to the rocks and have fun with pargo, cabrilla, triggerfish and snapper. Those are always willing to bite.

Everyone got fish. No mistaking that. But, it was just hard to put-a-finger on the bite or predict anything.

Definitely, the seasons are changing. Water is getting cooler down deep. The air is cooler. The north winds are picking up much earlier than usual. And that’s affecting the fishing. As the air and water gets erratic so goes the fishing.

It’s clear by the type of fish that are starting to show up. More cooler water fish are in the counts. A tremendous number of sierra started showing up about 10 days ago. More sierra than I have ever seen in several decades here. Normally, these fish don’t show up until late November of December. But, they’re here now and they are thick. Usually, we’ll get a handful a day. This year, each panga might get a whole boat-load of them in a single day and they are also much larger than usual.

Additionally, we’re getting the occasional yellowtail, rainbow runner, pompano and other cooler water species.

We’re coming to the end of the warm-water season, it appears. Not sure how much longer the warm-water species will be here. We’ll keep you posted.

That’s our story!

FISHING IMPROVES ALOT…UNTIL NORA SHOWS UP!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Aug. 25-31, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

First marlin is a blue! Dan Dorati with Captain Armando and Dan’s first marlin.

 

Tony Toven from Sylmar CA was fishing a live sardine when this nice wahoo bit not far off Cerralvo Island.

Double-fist roosters for Kincaid Hancock and his dad, Tommy, from San Diego.  It was Kincaid’s first-time fishing on salt water.  Both fish ate live sardines and both were released.

Austin Dorati puts another dorado in the box.

Patrick Busby from Louisiana battled this striped marlin on 20 pound test and a light 8-foot spinning outfit for an hour-and-a-half.  He was fishing with the Tailhunter Fleet in La Paz.  They were fishing light tackle in a school of dorado when the marlin bit.

Captain Rogelio gives Kincaid Hancock a hand with this dorado photo. It was Kincaid’s first salt-water trip. He’s from San Diego.

Tommy has another rooster for the camera. Catch-and-release!

One of the nicest guys to visit, great shot of Andy Lauber who fished with light tackle all week. All roosters were released.

Compared to last week, fishing was remarkably improved on so many levels . For both our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet and our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet, the bite improved the further away we got from the last week’s full moon as well as the remnants of 3 storms that brushed us, Lynda, Kevin and Marty that didn’t actually hit us, but their effects on the waves, currents and winds added to the full moon affects.  Hence, I think that’s why the fishing was off.

However, this week, the roosterfish over at Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay were back on track with quite a bit of catch-and-release fish running up to about 30 pounds and the fish willing to hit live bait.
If you fished the inshore as well as the  rocks and reefs, there were plenty of snapper, cabrilla, triggerfish, pargo, jack crevalle and other species to make for hours-of-action, if that’s what you wanted to do, especially on light tackle.
The most marked improvement was with the pelagic species.  Still no tuna this year, but we did have some wahoo strikes.  Marlin and sailfish also picked up with fish getting hooked daily.  Some boats getting multiple strikes.  Most fish released or breaking off.
Best of all, the dorado were much more cooperative for both of our fleets.  Most fish were that fun 10-20 pound size and limits were not uncommon.  Some of the dorado were biting right in the bay not far from in front of the hotels and Malecon.
Interestingly, we got some sierra and yellowtail in the counts.  Those are usually colder water fish we don’t see until winter or spring.
A good part of the days of the week, we spent watching the track of Hurricane Norma.  It had alot of us prepping to get hit as it came north towards Baja with winds predicted up to 90 mph.  We were pretty sure we were in for several days of winds and rain.  However, we were fortunate in that Nora bent easterly and veered towards the mainland instead.
We got some strong winds, but otherwise dodged a bullet.
We had to cancel fishing one day because the port captain shut things down, but we were able to get back on the water the next day.  I am always worried after a storm comes through wondering how it would affect fishing.  Sometimes, it takes more than a few days for the fish and waters to get back on track especially since the fishing had been pretty steady.
However, the storms didn’t do as much as anticipated and fish seemed to be willing to bite again after the storm.
That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Aug. 18-24, 2021

HAD TO WORK HARD TO GET THE FISH TO BITE

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Aug. 18-24, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Bob and Lisa Foster from Idaho. Bob got the dorado and Lisa battled the marlin…her first. They also released a bunch of fish as well.

Our poster-girl of the week, Taryn Mitoma, is about to start her 2nd year at UC Davis and came down with dad for a few days of fishing. Captain Alfredo lends a hand with one of her dorado.

Bob Cowan has come down several times and had billfish on the line only to lose them. This one ate a tiny sardine on light tackle and Bob had his hands full, but finally landed the sailfish. Captain Joel helps out. The fish could not be released.

We have watched 17-year-old Sean Rose from Washington grow up over the years and he’s now a high school senior then heading into the navy. He has been coming for years with his dad and shows off his first-day dorado.

Taryn and dad, Ed “Beaver” Mitoma with a couple of fun light tackle roosters caught and released.

Big smiles from Jeff Loh and Bob Cowan with a couple of fresh dorado for the box.

Not much to tell.  Coupled with some big swell and winds left over from Hurricane Lynda and Kevin that barely touched us and moved outside to the south, it still pushed a tad of rain plus some erratic water conditions.  Then, the full moon came up on us.  Kinda of a triple whammy on the fishing.

Oh, and then were was Tropical Storm Marty that poked it’s head in as well for an afternoon.

Rain across the bay. Lightning in there too!

 

Everyone got fish, but we had to work hard for it and the fish themselves were picky.
Most of the bite for our Tailhunter La Paz fleet continued to be dorado up to about 20-pounds.  Our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet had a smattering of dorado, but also roosterfish were more prevalent.  Along the rocks, pargo and cabrilla were more than willing to chew.  Also, still a good number of sailfish and marlin here and there.

Jeff Loh goofing with one of his dorado!

Interestingly, there were some sierra and yellowtail caught.  Very strange since those are cooler water fish and it’s still August.  Normally, sierra show up about November.  Yellowtail are a winter/ spring fish!  Just adds to a weird year!
Other than that, to be perfect honest, it was a bit slow.  We’ve surely seen better.  And things always change down here!
That’s my story!

TROPICAL SHOWERS DON’T DAMPEN DORADO

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Aug 10-17, 2021

The Mexican Minute Video Report

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

We had a few short, but strong rainstorms blow through this past week.

Shelton Donnell, our long-time amigo, is always good to see in La Paz. He’s from Portland and had a nice few days and took home a nice chest of dorado.

There’s still nice roosterfish around . Paul Di Gaudio and his amigo caught and released 6 roosters on this particular day. Paul is from Corona CA.

It’s like fishing in an aquarium if you go for the reefs and rocks holding snapper, cabrilla, pargo and others. All great eating. Captain Joel in the middle with Jeffrey and Miles Brown from Oregon who hit the rocks with light tackle north of La Paz.

Smiles say it all. We’ve watched these two grow up for many years! Cortez and Sierra Sanchez came to see us from Colorado, but have been fishing Baja since they could walk! Nice dorado to take home to mom and dad.

Beto Chavez on his first trip to visit us shows off one of his several dorado. He says he’s coming back soon!

Mike O’Connell had a kick fishing with us for the first time and shows off his largest dorado of a 3-day trip.

Oh just too much fun for Gaby Donnell with another dorado for the box! She’s way fun!

A long way from Wisconsin, but he visits us every year and always does well. Jeff Brown with one of his dorado. Check those rain clouds in the back.

It was kind of an unremarkable in a good way this past week. The fish bit and everyone had fun!

The only issue was really the weather. We had tropical storms Kevin and Linda…and Linda turned into a Category 3 hurricane. However, they were far far outside and to the south and never threatened anything. However, both did send over some afternoon thundershowers that kept us on our toes wondering how it would affect the fishing.

Some of the thundershowers were torrential and caused widespread flooding even though the rain storm might have only been for 15 minutes to an hour. And, as often happens with our rain, it can rain really hard in one spot, but down the highway or across the bay, they are dry and in sunshine. Or you can be out on the water in sunny weather, but you can see columns of rain in the distance. Sometimes, it’s so hot, you actually want to drive the boat through the rain to cool off.

The good thing about the rain storms was that there wasn’t alot of wind. In fact, the seas stayed flat. So, even if it was raining or drizzling, we could still fish and actually it was quite comfortable.

Fishing-wise…our Las Arenas Tailhunter fleet still kept kicking out roosterfish between 10 and 50 pounds. Plus cabrilla, pargo, jack crevalle, snapper and bonito.

We SHOULD be finding tuna about now and also there should be more wahoo in the counts, but neither has materialized so far. Could start anytime. We hope!

For our Tailhunter La Paz fleet…well, dorado are 90% of the catch. Fun-sized fish running about 10-15 pounds mostly with some bigger bulls mixed in. Plus there’s still a far amount of billfish…striped marlin and sailfish getting hooked. All the fish this week were released or broke off as they were all larger fish on lighter tackle.

PASSPORT ISSUES

If you’re waiting for a passport renewal or a new passport for someone, it would be a good idea to check on it ASAP if you’ve got a pending trip.  Just like last year, it appears the U.S. passport office is slowing processing so even if you expedite things, chances are it’s gonna take alot longer than anticipated.  Don’t wait until the last minute to find out your passport won’t arrive on time!

Yes…even Spiderman needs to get his passport renewed.

 

 

That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of July 25-Aug. 1, 2021

DORADO and BILLFISH

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of July 25-Aug.1, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

NOTE: MARLIN and SAILFISH PHOTOS! Folks…before you send me e-mails or post up hate messages, please take notice that there are ALOT of billfish photos in this report. These represent perhaps 5% of the billfish that our fishing fleet hooked this past week. There are THAT many billfish out there. Some days, the waters are thick with billfish. Many times our anglers are NOT trying to catch billfish. But the billfish are biting. The vast majority of the fish that we hook are released by our anglers or (being big fish), they break off or get unhooked). In many cases, the billfish you see here were unable to be released or, after the photo was taken, the fish were indeed returned to the water. In many cases, when the fish was not or could not be released, the meat was donated to local folks who were very grateful for the meat. But, that being said, anglers are entitled to keep a billfish if they did want to keep one and we are very stringent about never exceeding the billfish limits.

Marius came all the way from South Africa to spend two weeks fishing with us every-other-day. He was so impressed, he purchased property in La Paz! He caught lots of dorado and on this particular day hooked, landed and released four billfish all on light tackle including this striper.

Jeanne Cabales had to cancel her yearly trip last year, but is always fun to have visit. She’s pretty excited about these nice dorado. Jeanne is from San Diego.

Not too many funnier guys to have visit us each year than Sal Lopez with another dorado in the boat with our La Paz fleet.

Young Jacob Radloff from northern California…first day…fishing in the rocks in shallow water hooks his first marlin! You don’t have to go a zillion miles out to find big sportfish!

Bo Henke has been fishing with us for a generation every year. He always does well. Here with his son Gio and two of his box of dorado for the day. Loves fishing with Captain Chito.

Jose Mohler from Carlsbad CA had just one day to squeeze in for fishing and had a pretty good day of it with one of several dorado in the photo.

Captain Raul took Luis Arandia out for several days. One of them produced this striper. They took a number of dorado as well. Luis has been fishing with us for years and owns his own high end clothing line. Most of this marlin was donated.

My San Diego “bruddah” from Hawaii has never taken a straight-faced fishing photo in all the years he’s fished with us. This pargo is headed home in the box.

Molly and Travis came all the way from Texas with just one day to fish. They wanted to do some inshore fishing and had alot of action with cabrilla, snapper and triggerfish.

One of our long-standing amigos for so many years came back to see us and got a load of dorado over two days. Hector Chacon from Arcadia CA came down with his dad. Always good to see him.

Dan Sayin and son Aidan squeezed in a day of fishing at the end of their vacation and found a productive day on the dorado schools. Both are from Carlsbad CA.

 

Daniel Acosta on his first trip to fish with us for 3 days took this striper. Most of the meat was donated.

With the full moon earlier in the week, the fish counts took a tiny bit of a dip, but overall, it was just a nice solid summer week of fishing.  It was hot, humid and sunny.  Waters were blue and warm and mostly it was pleasant vacation style fishing which is perfect for most folks that are here right now.  Lots of couples and families.  Lots of first-timers experiencing Mexico and salt-water fishing for the first time.  Quite a few kids.  So the kind of fishing we had was pretty much just-right!

Dorado made up the mainstay of the catch, especially for our Tailhunter fleets that fish out’ve La Paz.  Most of the fish were perfect fun-sized 10-20 pounders with the occasional larger fish.  Schools were scattered over a wide area and could provide crazy action if the right school was found.
Sometimes a boat didn’t do as well as other boats, but the next could could be the exact opposite or the boat that didn’t bring back much fish might be because they tied into the other pre-dominant species we had this week…billfish.
Once again, as has been the case for the last two months, we’re seeing more marlin and sailfish than we have ever seen in many seasons.  Often, whether you wanted one or not, it was not unusual to hook a billfish…or two…or three!
Many times the anglers are trying to catch a dorado or some keeper fish and along come the marlin and bites and they are in the middle of dorado or bonito or other species.  The billfish comes along eating the bonito or the dorado and even the little sardine bait on the tiny hook and light line!  Then, the angler is in for a crazy long battle or the fish gets off.  It makes for some fun fishing and there is always the unexpected anxiety of not knowing just what is going to bite if you have a line in the water.

Most of the billfish were released or broke off.  For all the photos, it represents only a fraction of the billfish that were hooked.  If a fish could not be released, more-often-than-not the anglers donated the meat.
Other than dorado and billfish, the rest of the catch included roosterfish which are surprisingly still around with fish up to 40 or 50 pounds as well as jack crevalle, bonito, snapper, pargo and a few other random species. No shortage of action, especially if you’re fishing several days.
Like I said, you could have an off-day here or there, but if you’re fishing several days, the other days might well make up for it.
By the way, beaches have been re-opened and alcohol sales in restaurants and markets are now back to 11 p.m. instead of the 8 p.m. cut off. 😁👍
That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of July 18-24, 2021

GOOD FULL MOON MID-SUMMER ACTION

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of July 18-24, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Hector Chacon from Arcadia CA used to visit us every year for many years, but missed the last 5. He finally made it back to us and started out with a nice catch-and-release roosterfish fishing with Captain Jorge.

Tannier Pierson from San Diego was a billfish magnet for a few days. I think I heard he hooked one or two billfish a day including this one with Captain Pancho. All were released or broke off.

Smiles say it all. Megan Graves from San Diego while staying at Rancho Costa in Bahia Muertos poses with a fresh bull mahi.

One of the nicest all-time amigos, Rafael Rios fishing every year with us and hails from Corpus Christi TX. Good way to start the say with an early morning bull mahi! Pretty shot. We cooked up a bunch of it at our Tailhunter Sea Level Restaurant.

He said it was his best fishing day ever . From Washington, Brett Thomassen, tries with the help of Captain Raul to pose with one of the larger sailfish we’ve seen lately. They were fishing just north of La Paz. Waters were a bit bouncy . They also caught dorado.

Catching a marlin is quite a feat. Catching one on a flyrod is incredible, but that’s what Greg Wetherbee from Colorado did with this pretty fish and Captain Rogelio. Greg Released the fish and over 5 days with his flyrod also caught numerous roosterfish, jacks, bonito, dorado and others. All released.

Just one day to squeeze in a day of fishing with us, Howie Cohen, had some fun with 4 droado plus snapper and cabrilla. Howie is from Alpine CA. He was fishing around Espirito Santo Island with Captain Raul.

Dan Jenkins staying at Rancho Costa Resort at Bahia Muertos looks pretty happy with his roosterfish! The fish was released.

Captain Gerardo with Wally Graves (the one smiling) and a nice marlin for the photos before a good release. Nice photo!

Hector says his dad, Richard Chacon, caught all the fish! Nice rack…dorado, snapper and huge triggerfish!

YEOW! This looks like a mutant! I wish Tim Dumler had a scale to put this fish on. What a dorado!

Greg has another one on the flyrod. This one a colorful dorado and then the meat donated.

It wasn’t a spectacular week of fishing by any means, but it was a good solid fun summer week fishing.  Even with a full moon.  Just fun!  No real surprises.  Everyone who wanted fish caught fish.  Everyone who wanted to bring home fish, brought home fish.  Everyone who wanted to bring some fish to have cooked up back on shore, had fish to cook up.
Some folks caught the bucket list they always wanted.  For some, it was a billfish like a marlin or a sailfish.  For others it was that first roosterfish. For others, they targeted dorado.  If it wasn’t their bucket list fish, for some, it was the biggest fish they had every caught.
Indeed, roosterfish, marlin and dorado were the three pre-dominant species of the week.  But the action was rounded out with good rod-bending on jack crevalle, bonito, triggerfish, cabrilla, pargo and snapper.  Bait was not an issue.
Lots of smiles and good action.  Can’t ask for more!
If anything, the biggest issue we had was mid-week when a hurricane way way way down south and headed out to Hawaii sent some big swells up the Sea of Cortez making it more than a bit bump and rough for our boats fishing out of La Arenas and damping down the bite.  Conversely, the more protected waters north of La Paz produced better fishing during those days.  When the seas calmed down so did the bite and right back to normal.
It’s really HOT and humid these days.  Anyone coming down is advised to stay hydrated!  Not kidding.  Easy to get sick if you’re not drinking lots of water.  Unfortunately, beer and margaritas don’t count!
That’s my story!

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Bennett Clegg always does well on the light tackle. This pretty bull dorado he caught while fishing with Captain Joel is no exception.

Ken Smith had just one day to squeeze in to try to catch his bucket-list rooster. He and Captain Armando rocked this big one and several others. All released.

That’s some good eating! Scott Pitts put this nice cabrilla in the fish box.

With Captain Rogelio our first-timer Utah amigos, Morgan Robinson and her dad, Cody just off Espirito Santo Island.

Tim Weaver is usually wearing black robes and has a gavel in his hand as a judge from Arkansas. This time he’s got himself a nice roosterfish. One of several all released.

I love this photo and we love this amiga…sheer joy! Toni Brown and Captain Alfredo with a fresh dorado on the gaff!

She’s been with us for years and always does well with her favorite Captain Pancho. Dolores Ehlers with another roosterfish. Photo and release!

Scott Dull squeezed in a quick drive down from Loreto to fish one day with us and ended with a sucessful catch of pargo, cabrilla and triggerfish to drive back up north.

Morgan Robinson with her first roosterfish off Bahia Muertos. Photo and release.

I THINK this is Greg Wetherbee behind the mask! He worked his flyrod for five days and caught a number of species including this slugger jack crevalle.

Pro fishing guide, John Daly, was a first-time visitor with us and shows off his first roosterfish outside of Suenos for a photo and release.

Now, here’s a nice photo! Colorful bull dorado caught by young Drake Rowland from Texas.

Ben Rodriguez, another of our first-timers this week, shows off a first-day catch off the reef with triggers cabrilla, big pargo and snapper .Ben is from San Diego.

Tim had himself a pretty active week with lots of species including this dog-tooth snapper. He did release alot of fish too!

Always a pleasure to have Mark Brown visit us. Last year, they had to cancel, but he was back this week and fished with Captain Alfredo taking this fat roosterfish north of La Paz. The fish was released .

I’ve known Ray Laney for years and he brought his son, Daniel, down for his high school graduation. They had to work hard for their fish, but the last day finally turned on with some nice dorado. Ray is from Oxnard CA

Dave Elliott and Bill Cogdall are two more of our new amigos who had to cancel last year, but came back this year for 3 days on the water with us. Great guys and glad to have them finally make it. They did pretty good on the dorado!

Cindy Weaver with her first rooster! Captain Armando lends a hand and helps with the release afterwards.

This photo is just too special. John Carser and his wife, Carol from Huntington Beach CA brought grandson Patrick to La Paz. Patrick is from Rhode Island and spending the summer with grandma and grandpa. This was his first time saltwater fishing and this was his first dorado! He did it! But, check the great facial expression! Grandpa John is all smiles.

His first marlin plus on live bait…on light tackle…and from a panga in shallow water! Tim Weave with his first striper…caught and released.

Hard to tell, but I think this is Mark Buddy behind the mask showing off one of several roosterfish he took on the fly while fishing the whole week with us . He got a number of species on the flyrod. All fish were released.

One of the best guys around…long time amigo from Denver, John Ehlers with his favorite Captain Pancho. John’s got another rooster to put back in the water as soon as he takes the photo.

Alicia Clegg from the East Bay of San Francisco can fish! She does so well every year. She’s got another dorado for the box!

Captain Rogelio poses with one of our new Utah friends, Stephanie Robinson and a nice dorado on the gaff.

Sam Sybesma from Bellflower is another of our good amigos who has been fishing with us for years. He brought down his son, Micah, this year. I think Micah caught bigger fish than dad!

Lots of first-timer roosterfish. Captain Armando with Teal Smith and her first gallo!

Late season rainbow runner caught by Crystal Bernhart outside of Bahia Muertos. Great eating fish we usually catch in the springtime months.

When you’re hot, you’re hot. Tim with another rooster for a photo and release!

Dan Hibma was visiting us for the first time from S. California and it looks like he’s got a nice dorado ready for the box.

It wasn’t a spectacular week of fishing to be honest.  There weren’t alot of big trophy fish caught.
But, it was good steady summer fun fishing!  Except for a few slack times, overall, everyone caught fish.  There was plenty of action to go around.
Sometimes when it’s all big fish, especially for families, kids or first timers, big fish can be a tough fight.  And often a big disappointment when they break off.  With the fish we had this week, it was just pretty good steady fun fishing.
There might be the occasion off day, but most of our anglers fish several days.  The good days usually made up for the slower days and the bite produced a good mix of dorado, billfish, lots of small to medium roosterfish, jack crevalle, big bonito, pargo, snapper, cabrilla and even some late season amberjack and rainbow runners.
The dorado have definitely slowed from the wild bite of a few weeks ago, but fish are still out there holding especially under the sargasso paddies.  There were two days when there were lots of fish all around, but they just wouldn’t bite.  It was frustrating.  We figured it was just because the tides were especially slack and the fish simply weren’t feeding.  That applied to the dorado as well as other species.  The currents picked up and they fish started biting again.
Marlin have tapered as well.  I think that has alot to do with the current, but also there has been so much traffic on the fishing grounds that the marlin have gotten lock-jawed.  The marlin have been so thick over the last month that everyone and their brother, especially locals have been pounding the waters for the billfish. Hopefully, the bite comes back.
If you’re coming down, it’s been warm!  High 90’s to low 100’s with humidity.
That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of June 16-23, 2021

A WEIRDLY GOOD WEEK…I THINK!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Bahia Muertos / Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of June 16-23, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

One of several marlin hooked and either broke off or released by Bernie Cooks from Reno NV. This one was a big blue that broke off at the boat on light tackle.  Dozens were hooked this week and most were either released or broke off.  Very few were kept.

First-time visitor, Jim Price from the Riverside CA area with a huge bull dorado on the beach at Bahia Muertos.

Yup! Those are the first real tuna of the season taken on the backside of Cerralvo Island chasing the porpoise schools. Captain Jorge with long-time Tailhunter amigo, Steve Ritz and new amigo, Owen Cruz.

Every year, same time year-after-year, Kelly Jimenez from Loveland CO hits big fish with captain Pancho like this hefty roosterfish she caught and released out’ve Bahia Muertos.

Yea! Finally some wahoo on the deck! Chris Garden from Arizona staying a Rancho Costa shows off the speedster taken on that purple Rapala.

What a trip he had! Jaxon Adams from Utah with his dad, Jeff, had a long battle on this striped marlin while fishing with our La Paz fleet.

Matt Cooley from S. Africa really wanted to catch a roosterfish and had only one day to do it. Check out this beauty that Captain Gerardo estimated over 80 pounds. Matt struggles to heft it for the photo before releasing it.

This is a MONSTER!!! Huge bull dorado for Owen Cruz. Not just his first time to La Paz but also his first time fishing on the ocean and on his FIRST day he hits the jackpot.

Tim and Gavin Corcoran rocked this nice wahoo out’ve Bahia Muertos from Gary Wagner’s place at Rancho Costa.

Lynn Starnes is a great angler and a heckuva a professional photographer. Most of the marlin photos in this week’s report are all here fantastic shots. Here she is with a rooster of her own with Captain Jorge before a quick release.

Young Noah Stark gets help from mom, dad and Captain Rogelio on this thick marlin. He also released another one. Nicely done! The meat was donated.

Captain Jorge gives a thumbs-up for the rooster photo with Bernie Cooks cradling this nice fish. The fish was released.

Check the head on this big bull dorado! Kelly was fishing with Captain Chito when she put the wood to this trophy mahi.

Matt Brown from Philadelphia give Sean Gill from Colorado on his big striped marlin he caught fishing with our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet. They donated much of the fish.

Has to be one of the best photos of the week. Early morning dorado for first timer amigo, Chuck Gibson fishing with Captain Jorge how has a great smile for the catch. This needs to be framed.

Heidn Bahr only had one day to squeeze in for fishing, but with Captain Arcangel, he put her onto this marlin that resulted in a long long battle.

First-timer and first-day luck for Jaxon Adams who gets a hand from his dad on this big-headed bull dorado.

Table full of football tuna ready to get cleaned and a good photo with Jim Price who got in on the early tuna bite this week.

The rough windy ocean doesn’t deter Rhonda Hoyt with the big smiles for hooking this dorado north of La Paz.

Just a crazy beautiful photo! Stephanie Stark with son, Noah and Captain Pancho off the cliffs with a pretty rooster ready for release.

He always gets into the fish, Dr. Santiago Morales has an ice chest full of tuna fillets to bring home.

Scott and A.J. Dworak with Captain Armando show off some of their first-day tuna. The boys are from Colorado.

 

Great sample of some of the variety available right now. Kelly and Diego with dorado, triggerfish, pargo, snapper and cabrilla.

Jeff has a dorado for the camera to start the day and great colors ready to release.

In some ways the fishing this past week was not as good as it had been. There were alot fewer fish caught. But, what we lacked in quantity, was more than set off by the quality of the fish we caught. Maybe our anglers didn’t catch as many fish, but the fish they did catch were bigger.

 

I have to be honest, it was kind of a weird and erratic week.  It wasn’t a great week.  There was some great fishing.  It wasn’t a bad week.  But, there was some bad fishing.   It was up-and-down and it was sideways.  Bottom line, everyone caught fish.  But, it was all over the place!

 

Alot had to do with winds that blew strong and cold in the mornings…and sometimes into the afternoons.  Where did these winds come from?  Totally unpredictable.  We found ourselves wearing jackets in the morning.  But, the winds really played a factor in clouding up the water and also blowing apart the big sargasso weed patches that were holding all those dorado for weeks.

All that great dorado action we’ve had for about 3 weeks dissipated somewhat. Definitely not as many dorado hit this week. However, the size and quality of the fish we hooked were some of the largest fish I have seen in decades. We had fish that were well over the 40-45 pound mark with some larger fish lost. A few of the bulls had heads that were easily 12-18 inches across and put up spectacular fights.

We even had tuna finally show up under the porpoise schools way on the outside. Football-sized fish of 10-15 pounds were running with the schools outside of Cerralvo Island, but on several days, our anglers fished them until they ran out’ve bait and the fish foaming and wanting more! This is really the first time we’ve had tuna in almost 3 years. Perhaps it also has something to do with the appearance of schools of tuna 6” squid we’re finding in the waters and in the bellies of the fish.

 

Roosterfish were as small as 15-20 pounds. But in many cases, especially if larger baits were used were 70-90 pounders! Almost all fish were released.

MARLIN!

The most remarkable even of the week were the marlin that finally decided to bite.

Again, I think alot of the great fishing this year had to do with the fact that Covid protocols kept all activities of the water this year so the fish had time to grow. Bait was unmolested. There was almost zero traffic on the water.

Brent Gaddis from San Diego .

So, for the first time in many years, we have had a wild billfish bite this past week.  I am not kidding if I tell you that we maybe had 30-50 marlin biters this past week!  Unheard of!

On several days, our pangas were hooking or getting bit by 1-5 marlin or sailfish per day! Whether they wanted a marlin or not, the marlin were literally swimming around the pangas sometimes. Folks who weren’t interested in hooking a marlin told me they drove the boat away from the spots and the marlin still followed them.

Diego Jimenez from Colorado

Marty Sering from Oregon

Others, fishing lighter tackle for dorado or other species suddenly found themselves on a long-battle…some lasting well over an hour…on these billfish. A number of first-timers got the thrill of a lifetime hooking several billfish on long struggles . On several occasions, there were double and triple hook-ups on marlin or folks would be hooked on a smaller dorado or bonito only to have a huge marlin eat the hooked fish! Exciting stuff!

FYI…probably 90% of all the billfish either broke off or were released.  The photos shown in this week’s report represent only a tiny fraction of the fish hooked and in many cases, the anglers shown had already released other fish before finally running into a fish that could NOT be released.   Much of the marlin meat was donated to folks that needed food. 

Other species this week included, amberjack, snapper, pargo, cabrilla, bonito, skipjack, pompano and jack crevalle.

That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of June 8-15, 2021

IT WAS MOSTLY GREAT…EXCEPT WHEN IT WASN’T…

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of June 8-15, 2021

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Maybe the biggest dorado so far of the season for our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet as the dorado are slowly making their way south. Captain Jorge with John McVay and a good-looking bull mahi on the beach at Muertos.

Captain Luis gives Denise Randall with another trophy dorado in that hot spot in the channel between Cerralvo Island and Las Cruces where the sargasso weeds have been building up.

Lucien Sanders from Idaho is our new poster kid for Tailhunter. Every time he comes down he catches the biggest fish and takes the best photos like this pretty bull with Captain Gerardo out’ve Bahia Muertos.

You can almost hear this big roosterfish roar as Sean Barnett from New Hampshire on his first trip to visit us caught and released this big fella just off the beach at Punta Arenas.

Just an incredible fish. An incredible photo. Dr. Jim Good from Denver CO with the understandable smiles.

Dean Kalmbach wanted a roosterfish for 10 years and finally got one and cradles this one for the photo before releasing it.

Elizabeth Vasquez had only one day to fish but was able to get into some of that dorado bite in the channel fishing with Captain Raul.

Our newest fun guy is Rich England who came all the way from Massachusetts. We lost count of his roosterfish catch-and-release record, but here’s a sample of one of them he hooked right in the shallows off Punta Arenas Beach.

One of our newest Tailhunter Tribe members is Cesar Garcia making the most of just squeezing in a single day of fishing with a pretty bull dorado.

Here’s a guy who loves to fish!  Oh yea! Huge big smiles for the big fish for Scott Randall with Captain Armando. The big dorado was released.

No shortage of color in this photos with two colorful dorado caught by Chao and Jacob Sanders from idaho. I think that’s their daughter taking a nap next to them.

This is a great photo. Double doubles for father-son Sean and Nick Barnett who double-teamed this pair of roosterfish and posted the great photo . Both fish released. They came all the way from New Hampshire.

Jim again in the gallery with yet another dorado! He caught alot of dorado and released most of them or gave them away.

Another of our avid lady anglers, Julia Kalmbach, has a feisty jack crevalle on hand before releasing it to torment someone else at a later date. These fish can fight!

What a great photo of a fresh blue dorado posed by young Lucien Sanders.

Katie Sgro squeezed in a day of fishing on one of the days that happened to be among the roughest of the week but still managed a good box of dorado to take home for hanging in there.

Steve Seeley gets the best beard-of-the-week award as he takes a photo with one of several roosterfish he was able to catch-and-release.

Another fish on the deck for Nino. On one of the roughest days in a long time, Nino stayed out and the day produced some good fish.

When the fish are on the chew, it can be lots of fun for the whole family.

Denise with another fish to add to the totals although this rooster was released. Captain Armando helps with the photo.

Emily and her dad Jason had a fun day on the water.

 

It was another good week of solid fishing with lots of action for the most part. . Until it wasn’t so good. There were a couple bumps here and there where maybe one panga did poorly or an area just didn’t produce.

There were also two days late in the week where we had a freak wind storm with winds from the south AND the west crashing and we actually were unable to launch any boats at all.  The subsequent days, the water remained somewhat turbid and green from the winds and it took a bit to get the fishing back on track with some really slow days for awhile.

Also,  some folks swung for the fences and spent their day chasing more elusive species like tuna, marlin or wahoo that didn’t show up.

However, everyone who chased what was there going on, got plenty of fish.  Mostly.  Most of the time.  It was a bit of a weird week.  Frankly, most of the fishing photos you see in this week’s gallery were caught earlier in the week.

Straight up, our La Paz fishing was far better. If you wanted to load up the ice chest, the dorado continue to be more than accommodating. You just have to find the right spot. There’s alot of floating sargasso out there (kelp paddies), but not every spot is holding fish.

The sargasso attracts sardines and other baitfish, especially flying fish that are laying their eggs and for the dorado, it’s like a floating buffet. If you hit the right spot, it can be non-stop action. Some of the “paddies” hold the younger 5-10 pound fish. Many anglers are tossing them back. But other paddies hold 15-30 pound and larger dorado that are really putting the wood to some of the anglers and a good many large fish are getting lost, but still lots of fun.

Our Las Arenas fishing is finally starting to see a few dorado as the sargasso moves south but mostly the bite for our fleet there has been a variety of fish including jack crevalle, snapper, pargo, cabrilla, bonito, amberjack, yellowtail, pompano, yellow jacks. Some days have been better than others. Roosterfish between 10 and 50 pound are still prowling the beaches with some larger. !

We have also had a couple of big striped and blue marlin come up on the lines that I’m told were 150-400 pound fish that hit baits, but the hooks didn’t stick.  As the week progressed, we saw more and more marlin cruising the surface or half-heartedly attaching baits and lures.  They’re in that sleepy state when they’re just getting acclimated to the warmer water and not really feeding to the frustration of many anglers.  However, within the next week or two, I would bet the billfish start going off.

 

FLIGHTS!

Don’t forget that there are now direct flights on American Airlines for the first time in a decade direct from the U.S. to La Paz from Phoenix and from Dallas on selected days of the week!   This will last through summer.  Hopefully, longer if it stays popular.  Many of our clients have booked on these flights.  They’re great and saves that 3 hour drive from Cabo!  Don’t miss out!

Get in touch with us and we’ll put together a complete hotel/ fishing package for you!  Lots of dates are filled or filling fast!  We’re looking forward to seeing you this year!

That’s our story!
