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!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 19-26, 2020

INSHORE FISHING BEST 

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay / Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan 19-26, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Scott Bryant from Colorado has himself some good eating cabrilla for dinner while staying at Rancho Costa.

Santiago gamaliel yellowtail 1-20 tags

Jigging with yo-yo iron, Dr. Santiago Gamaliel hung this nice yellowtail and had two other break off.

From Alaska, Mic Ward came down to enjoy a few days of sunshine at Rancho Costa at Bahia de los Muertos south of La Paz and landed a double-hand of cabrilla.

Not much of anyone out fishing this past week with mostly windy rough days outside.  Most of the fishing was confined to inshore species as anglers hugged the coastal areas seeking calmer water and protection from the north winds and choppy ocean.

 

Using Rapalas, stripped bait, squid and live bait (when it could be found), produced a mixed bag of pargo, snapper, triggerfish and cabrilla as well as some bonito, sierra and jack crevalle.  Slowly dragging smaller dark Rapalas over the rocky spots were especially productive for a variety of species.  Some yellowtail popped up as well and hopefully, this is the vanguard of our yellowtail

 

Despite the winds, it’s been sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70’s and nights down to the mid-50’s, but it looks like more wind will hit later this week.

 

DOWN THE ROAD WE GO!

Jill and I are just wrapping up here at the Washington State Fairgrounds where we spent the last 5 days in our booth at the Washington Sportsman’s Show!   It was the best show we’ve ever had here in almost 2 decades at this show.  Welcome to all our new amigos to the Tailhunter Nation and to see so many old friends and faces.  Also had alot of folks sign up to come down to see us as well and made reservations to fish with us in 2020.  We’re excited to have you down to visit!

Thanks for all the hospitality Washington!  (And rain too…loved it!  We don’t get much rain in Baja!)

So, here we go…next stop down the road south to Portland for the Pacific Northwest Sportsmans Show at the Portland Expo Center.  This is one of the largest outdoor shows in the Western U.S. and if you’re in the area, you gotta check it out!  Here’s details.  Click the link:

Show Information

Next stop…OREGON at the Portland Expo Center Feb. 5-9! Come see us!

WHALE WATCHING SEASON UNDERWAY AT BAHIA MAGDALENA

 

Although there might not be lots of folks fishing right now,  the 2002 whale watching season is just getting underway.  Whales should just about starting to show up.

It’s not too late to book a trip with us to head on over to experience an incredible day with these gentle creatures that migrate all the way from the Bering Sea year-after-year to spend the early months in the warm shallow waters of Bahia Magdalena.   Just write to me directly at: Jonathan@tailhunter.com

That’s our story!

La Paz -Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan 12-19, 2020

MIXED BAGS FOR THE WEEK

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 12-19, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Some good eating sierra on board for Robert Boyd from Colorado.

Gary Wagner, our amigo, who owns the Rancho Costa Resort in Muertos has himself a handful or winter dorado.

All the way from Alaska, winter is a little different in Baja! Mic Ward shows off one of her sierra.

 

It’s been COLD in La Paz this past week along with some windy weather.  The winds are expected this time of year, but it’s been colder than normal…at least by La Paz standards with us locals bundling up and even the tourists donning the occasional sweatshirt or windbreaker.  Although most look at us kinda strange as they walk around in shorts and flip-flops.

 

Lots of snowbirds in town and although the temps are in the 60’s and 70’s with the wind, it’s still a lot warmer than where they  live back in places like Minnesota, Wyoming and Alaska!

 

The climate, of course, affects the ability to be out there fishing.  It’s been hard to put anyone out there and there’s not that many folks wanting to fish anyway. Or, folks that want to fish understandably get discouraged when they see the winds.  Best to just hang out drinking a margarita by the pool!

 

When folks have been fishing, the better fishing has been tucked in close to shore, especially in areas where you can find some protection from wind and waves.  Therefore, the majority of the fish have been inshore specias like cabrilla, snapper, triggerfish, pargo, jack crevalle and sierra.  All fun and good eating fish.

Sierra have a moutful of choppers! Best to use wire when you fish them!

 

When there are window’s of calm, there’s still some dorado around running to about 10 or 15 pounds plus some good action on 5-pound bonito.  The larger issue has been finding live bait in which case lures are the most productive way to catch fish.  With rough waters it’s tough to get into the areas where the live bait is holding along the shores and rocks.

 

I’ve heard a few stories about commercial guys finding some yellowtail as well as some private boaters.  We’ll keep an eye on that!

TAILHUNTER ROAD TOUR 2020 !

We finished the Denver Sportsmans Show two weeks ago then just wrapped up another fantastic show at the California Expo Fairgrounds in Sacramento CA.

That drive from Denver to Sacramento was incredible!  In almost 3 decades driving to and from these shows, this was some of the craziest driving we ever had, especially through Wyoming, Utah and Nevada.  We went through several blizzards where it was white-out conditions and almost zero visibility!  Plus winds blowing 60-70 mph.  All kinds of trucks and cars spinning off the road and flipping over.  Check out this video:

Packed to the gills, Jonathan, Jill and Catlyn (the Mexican Pocket Panther)

Jill “Mustang Sally” after a long long drive through the snow and ice!

 

So, by the time you’re reading this, we’ll be on the highway again going north from Sacramento towards Seattle.  We’ll be at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup WA for the Washington Sportsmans Show which starts Wednesday and goes to Sunday.  Lots to see and do for the entire family!  Come see us.  We’ll be in our Tailhunter booth for all 5 days.  We’ll get you set up on your 2020 La Paz fishing vacation!

COLD and WINDY WEEK HAMPERS FISHING

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 5-12, 2020

Mexican Minute Video Report 

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Like alot of places in North America this past week…

It’s been COLD in La Paz to go along with some windy weather.  The winds are expected this time of year, but it’s been colder than normal…at least by La Paz standards with us locals bundling up and even the tourists donning the occasional sweatshirt or windbreaker.  Although most look at us kinda strange as they walk around in shorts and flip-flops.

Check out this video clip.  The voice you hear is Benny outiside Tailhunter Restaurant:

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.

 

I’m sure town is gonna start getting more crowded in the next few days as we get closer to Christmas.

BOOKING FOR 2020

It’s not too early to check on getting your dates together for next year which hits us in just a few weeks already!  Reservations are already coming in steadily and some dates are filling fast and a few are already sold out.  Don’t wait to see at at one of the sport shows.  Last year, by March, we were largely all booked up.  Get in touch with us today.   Check out the website at http://www.tailhunter.com or e-mail me directly at Jonathan@tailhunter.com and let’s get you set up to fish with us in La Paz in 2020!

That’s our story!

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

WEATHER IFFY…FISHING PICKY

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

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Weather was up-and-down all week with sunshine mixed with clouds, wind, rain drizzle and thunderstorms at times as Tropical Storm Raymond hit southern Baja including La Paz.

Dr. Roberto Santiago  got a wahoo fishing out of Bahia Muertos near Las Arenas. He also picked up a medium-sized dorado as well in a rare break in the rough weather that plagued La Paz a good part of the week.

For one day of fishing with our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet, Brian Benson made the most of that little window and sho off some of the dorado he caught outside La Paz Bay.

Dr. Santiago again with one of his bull dorado caught out of Bahia Muertos.

Not many folks on the water this past week even if there were a lot of fishermen.  As we slide into the off-season, weather has become a larger factor.  For the same reason that the La Paz area becomes a mecca as a world class windsurfing and kite-boarding because of the strong winds during the winter, it makes it difficult to fish and a good part of this week, we had either winds, rain and rough seas…and sometimes all three hindering being out on th water.

 

Earlier in the week, we had some rain.  Then, it let up with some small windows of opportunity, but then Tropical Storm Raymond, a late season blow,  came up the Baja and dropped several days of rain and drizzle along with dark skies and blustery seas.

Even if we had wanted to go out, the Port Captain closed the port prohibiting boat traffic from going out at all.

 

The few windows of opportunity that did open provided some scratchy action on some school-sized dorado ranging mostly from 10-15 pounds plus, there’s still some wahoo around which is not unusual for this time of year.

 

Bonito, jack crevalle and small cabrilla added to the catch.  We got some reports that commercial guys near the island reefs had found some yellowtail, but it was hard to follow-up on that and get across to the island with the rough water in the channels making it difficult to get over there.

 

As the current storm moves out, we’re expecting some stronger guts this week.  Bring your windsurfer!

WHALE WATCHING SEASON COMING UP!

Perfect for the whole family!

Can you scratch this little itch on my nose?

Our whalewatching season is fast approaching with ideal months from Mid-January to Mid-March.  The whales have already started their migration way up north in the Bering Sea and headed south to Baja and we’re already taking reservations for our annual whalewatching tours.  We can set up everything including transportation, hotels and, of course, a day or more with the whales.  Contact us today.  It can get pretty crowded with reservations as the popularity has grown to spend time with these great gentle creatures.

RESERVATIONS 2020

Speaking of 2020…don’t get left out for next year’s fishing!

We filled up really fast in 2019 and we don’t want to miss you next year, especially if you have special dates; hotels or captains you want.  Reservations are are already coming in daily and some dates are already sold out.

Get in touch with us today and let’s get you set up!  We’ve been full-service outfitters here in La Paz for 26 years and can set up everything for your vacation package!

That’s our story!
