La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of March 3-10, 2019

FISHING UPS & DOWNS WITH WEATHER

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Mar. 3-10, 2019

Mexican Minute Video Report

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

Early in the week hogs like Carl Lange’s hefty yellowtail were hanging in the shallow waters willing to take the baits, but as the week went on the fish got harder to find.

From Paso Robles, Joel Zarmati was fishing live bait over shallow rocks on the lee side of Cerralvo Island where the waters were calmer and sheltered from the winds when he hooked and landed this big-headed yellowtail.

A little early in the season for warm-water dorado, but nonetheless, Al Hutchinson brought this one back to the beach for the dinner table.

Tasty huachinango/ dog-tooth snapper right there in Bahia Muertos by our amiga, Donna Thompson. These guys can grow well over 50 or 60 pounds.

Lots of action for Kyra Sacadan who shows off her dorado and a table full of white bonito.

Great photo! Great fish! Donna can fish! Check out the size and colors of this trophy yellowtail off Cerralvo Island.

It was a hit-or-miss kind of fishing week.  The windsurfers and kite boarders had fun with the continuing winds, but even on the few days that were fishable, the few anglers out found it less than stellar although some fish were caught.  There are some quality fish around, that seem like they’re just waiting to bust loose and as winter pulls away, it’s like we two steps forward then 1 ½ steps back each week.

 

It just doesn’t pay to get too excited.  Last week, I was optimistic that maybe we were finally getting something going with some hog yellowtail, dorado, wahoo and even a tuna hookup and a marlin hook-up!  These are all species we generally don’t see this early in the year.  Things seemed like they were picking up!

 

Then, Mother Nature kinda slapped us back in place.  The yellowtail bite near Punta Perico and over at Cerralvo Island diminished significantly.  Bait got a little harder to find…again!  And overall, we were left with a smattering of dorado; some snapper; a cabrilla or two (although a few were trophy-sized) and lots of bonito.  Oh, and one marlin just to keep us excited.  Overall just kind of a ho-hum week, even for this time of the year.

 

The coming week looks promising.  Early, there’s some strong winds and there’s a possibility of rain, but then they really drop back quite a bit for the majority of the week.  That will hopefully kick the fish up again.

 

Thank You Long Beach Here We Come Salt Lake City!

Hanging in the booth with the Secretary of Fishing and Agriculture for Mexico, Luis Andres Cordova.

Just wrapping up a spectacular over-the-top show at the Fred Hall Fishing Show in Long Beach CA at the Convention Center.  The largest fishing and boating show in the world and over 1000 vendors from all over the world packed in the crowds and Jill and I talked non-stop for 5 full days.

We had a blast!  Thanks to everyone who stopped by and said hi and everyone who set up trips to see us this year in La Paz.  It was a fantastic party!

Jilly doing some socializing with Michelle from Big T’s Shirts, Carrie Wilson with Vagabundos del Mar and Rene Olinger from Baja Peninsula Tours in Loreto.

Two of the best…Ed Robison from Whopper Stopper Custom Rods and Pat McDonnell retired editor of Western Outdoor News. Pat brought me a bottle of Don Julio 70 for my birthday!

Can’t find a nicer guy in Dave Balthius, Vice President of Costa Sunglases and came out from Florida.

Some of the guys from the Long Beach Rod and Reel Club!

But now…no rest!  By the time you’re reading this, we’re in our Tailhunter-Mobile and zooming back to Utah for the International Sportsmans Show at the Expo Center in Sandy, Utah…just south of Salt Lake City.  This is always a fun show and we have a ba-jillion Tailhunter amigos in the area.  Hope to see you all!

There’s hundreds and hundreds of vendors from everywhere from Alaska to South America and New Zealand to the Siberia!  Hunting…fishing…camping…off-road…boating…there’s great things for the whole family.

The show goes Thursday to Sunday.  Here’s details. Click the link:

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

WIND PROVIDES FEW WINDOWS

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

Mexican Minute Weekly Video Report

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In Other News…

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

 

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

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

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

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

That’s our story!
