La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay / Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Feb. 27-Mar. 3, 2019

BETTER WEATHER – BETTER FISHING…FINALLY!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 27-Mar. 3, 2019

 

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY….

Carl Lange took down our first wahoo of the season just outside of Bahia Muertos! Crazy March catch!

 

OH man…this is a hog yellowtail! Roger Thompson with Captain Hugo knocked this guy out at the north end of Cerralvo Island slow trolling sardines in about 12′ of water! They got 5, but lost others they couldn’t stop.

 

Our Bakersfield amigo, Ken Gragg, loves to fish this time of year, even in the crazy weather and it paid off with a big-headed yellowtail later in the week.

The cabrilla queen herself, Donna Thompson from La Ventana has stuck so many of these big cabrilla over the years and she did it again at Cerralvo Island in shallow water.

You can tell it’s a bit cold and nippy as well as choppy, but Carl Lange probably doesn’t feel a thing except big smiles over another nice yellowtail.

We’ve got the whalesharks in the by of La Paz again. Had about a dozen this week and later in the week when winds calmed down, we were able to put some folks in the water to go swimming with them in the shallows.

It’s an incredible experience snorkeling with our La Paz whalesharks in the bay. The “babies” are only about 15 feet long or so.

The week started pretty blustery with white caps even in the normally calm La Paz Bay.  Actually, for this time of the year, that’s not unusual.  Fortunately, we didn’t have anyone out fishing, but we probably could not have gone out anyway.

 

However, as the week went on, winds diminished somewhat, at least enough to get out although there was still some chop and it was good to have a jacket or sweatshirt on.

 

Fishing out’ve Bahia de los Muertos, we hit quite a mix of fish, especially for so early in the year with warm water species mixing with the normal cold water species.  Big cabrilla, jack crevalle and both white bonito and skipjack kept the rods bent as well as smaller snapper and pargo.  However, we also got some legit yellowtail over structure and topped it with some flurries of dorado and even wahoo.

 

Live bait is still hard to come by with all the rough water, but we’re dragging lures and using dead bait pretty effectively and the fishing is not too far off the beach.

 

It was also calm enough to get out to swim with the whalesharks in La Paz Bay.  We had as many as a dozen in the shallow waters, but on the choppy days it’s hard to see them let alone swim with them.

 

Photo one : Carl Lange was fishing off the rocks just outside of Bahia Muertos near La Paz and was surprised when this wahoo hit his Rapala trolling in the shallows for cabrilla.  Carl is from Bakersfield.

 

Photo two:  Big-headed yellowtail on the gaff with Ken Gragg from Bakersfield who was just off Punta Perrico near La Paz and using dead bait.  He also got a big cabrilla.

HERE COMES THE BIG ONE!

Just wrapping it up in Boise, Idaho from the Idaho Sportsman’s Show and just a quick shout-out to all the Idaho amigos who came to visit us and put out a red-carpet welcome!  Man…what a show! Best Idaho show we’ve had in more than a decade!  Thank you all and we’ll see you in La Paz!

Next up…

It’s the grand-daddy…Fred Hall Fishing Show at the Long Beach Convention Center.  This is the oldest and largest fishing show in the entire U.S. and runs from Wednesday to Sunday (March. 6-10).  Come see us.  This is the one you do not want to miss.  We’ll be in our booth every single day and it is always a party at the Tailhunter Booth!

TUESDAY Mar. 5th JONATHAN’s BD BEER PARTY in LONG BEACH

If you’re gonna be in Long Beach Tuesday night, after we set up our booth at the Long Beach Convention Center, we traditionally head over to Joe Jost’s Bar and have some beers under the pretense of it being my birthday.  It’s my 62nd and we hope to be there about 6:30.  Totally informal.

Joe Josts has been there since 1924!  All the serve is beer…and sausage sandwiches…and pickled eggs…and liverwurst sandwiches…and egg salad sandwiches and pretzels and peanuts!  It’s like stepping back in time as I mark my time! It’s cheap and it’s fun! Just my style!

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!
