La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 7-14, 2018

Our Captain Adolfo was out just outside of Muertos. Dropped a mackerel and caught the nice little yellowtail. So, he then put down a Rapala and immediately got whacked by the wahoo right up close to the rocks!

Bonus for Paul Melewski from Colorado staying in Muertos Bay at Rancho Costa. Goes out for snapper over the rocks and pops a pair of dorado…in January!

THE LULL AFTER the HOLIDAYS

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay / Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 7-14, 2018

Not many folks fishing this week which is pretty typical now that the holidays are over.  Most of the holiday visitors have left and town is pretty mellow again, not that it was ever very bustling.  But, by the same token, not many folks fishing either.  Too bad because it was actually a pretty decent week for weather and the few trips we had out all resulted in some surprising fish.

There were the usual jacks and snapper, but also in those same spots close to shore and over the rocks we got yellowtail and wahoo.  In the bay, there’s still some dorado cruising around too.

THANKS DENVER – ONWARD TO SACRAMENTO

Thanks to everyone who came to visit us in Denver.  The ISE show at the Denver Convention Center was massive.  Great turnout and great to have so many of you booking to come visit us in La Paz this year.  Apologies if I personally missed you as I was out  2 1/2 days from the booth with a fever, no voice and an upper respiratory infection!  But, Jill did a stellar job, as she always does and I’m mo’ bettah now!  Thanks for understanding!
So, we’re on the road now with our van loaded and driving through the snow to get form Colorado to California to set up at the ISE show at the California Fairgrounds in Sacramento.  This is the largest hunting/ fishing show in N. California and a huge event for the whole family.  Come see us. We’ll have the booth in the usual spot.  Show runs Thursday to Sunday.  Here’s more details.  Click this link:
Hope to see you there this week!  Let’s talk about fishing in La Paz!
That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Dec. 24-31, 2017

CABRILLA SNAPPER DORADO CHRISTMAS WEEK

 

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 24-31, 2017

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO VERSION FISHING REPORT 

THE BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

Surprising to still be getting dorado this late in the year, but there’s still some fun-sized fish hanging out close to shore in the bay.

Some good eating! Cabrilla are becoming more prominent now that we’re doing more inshore fishing along the rocks and reefs. These Mexican “seabass” can get pretty large and are all tough fighters to get out’ve the rocks!

Nice rack of fish this week from Muertos Bay! Dorado and cabrilla!

One of the nicer flat days this past week at Bahia de los Muertos produced this nice bull dorado!

 

Looks like the last fishing report of the year, everyone!!!  Hope the holidays have been good to you!

The weather gods were surel good to us this week.

Wind wasn’t too bad of an issue and some great sunny skies for the snowbirds that are in town for the holidays.  Biggest “problem” if you can call it that, is that most folks in town aren’t here to fish!  But that’s OK too!  It’s a nice time to just be in town to enjoy some  warm sunshine, beaches and getaway from the cold places people come from!

For those folks who did get out fishing, there was decent action.  Not great but still some fish to be caught.  It’s winter and off-season.  So, it’s nice to even be able to be out there!
I often have to keep in mind that the folks who fish this time of year, aren’t necessarily “fisherfolk” who have a lot of experience and are just looking for a nice day on the water.  So, we don’t want get too technical with them and want to make sure they have a nice time and still catch some fish.
So, most of the fishing is closer to shore in the protected areas where we can get into some snapper, sierra, pargo, and cabrilla (seabass) as well as trigger fish.  That way everyone has a good time and gets to pull on some fish and have some fish to take home.  However, the bonus even in these areas, close to shore is that we have some dorado still in the area (decent 10-15 pounders).  There have also been reports of some yellowtail around too, but all broken off or could have easily been something else big that took the anglers into the rocks and busted off!  Still encouraging!  But, at least there’s still some action to be had.
The coming week doesn’t look too badly. There’s some winds in the forecast, but should be fishable!

TAKING WHALE WATCHING RESERVATIONS!  WHALES ON THE WAY!

Our whale watching season at Magdalena Bay is coming up!  The big guys show up from January to March with February being prime time.  Our reservations are filling up for day and overnight trips (you stay at a hotel on land!).  We can set up whole packages including the tours, transportation, meals, and other activities!  Let us know.  Don’t miss out on an incredible experience.  Just write to me directly at Jonathan@tailhunter.com and we’ll get you all set up!

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT for WEEK of DEC. 14-24, 2017

THE BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

You can sort of see the little white caps in La Paz Bay from the north winds, but it’s a nice time to spend Christmas in the city with nice sunny weather. Muy tranquillo!

That’s some good eating! A few dorado mixed with some snapper/ pargo and seabass. Nothing wrong with this catch from inside of Bahia de Los Muertos within a few yards off the rocks.

SUNNY CHRISTMAS WEEK

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 14-24, 2017

Feliz Navidad a Todos!

Not a bad week. Mostly sunny and warm with day time temps in the high 70’s to low 80’s and night temps in the high 50’s. Pretty much perfect for the snowbirds coming to town to spend the holidays. Towns getting busier and folks are bustling around for Christmas and it’s pretty festive, but not a lot of fishing going on. The snowbirds are here for…well…sunshine and not necessarily fishing and locals are pretty focused on Christmas right now with street fairs, shopping, religious posadas (parades). So, it’s been relatively quiet on the water…even though the wind wasn’t a big issue this week although there were moments when it gusted and kicked up waves.

Reports from the water were mostly from the Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay Area and fishing at the north and south ends of Cerralvo Island (wind and waves permitting) and closer to shore near Punta Perrico and the old hotel Las Arenas.

From the island, some wahoo hook-ups (and lost) so wahoo are still around, but some yellowtail are starting to poke up their heads on live bait when you get it or on the same Rapalas that we’re using to slow troll for the wahoo. There was an unconfirmed report from commercial pangeros that there were still some tuna just off the south end of the island on the high spot as well. But, as I said, it wasn’t confirmed.

Closer to shore, scattered dorado up to about 10 or 15 pounds are still hanging out which is surprising given the lateness of the year. But, no one is complaining. Along the rocks, the pargo, cabrilla and sierra, our more typical cold-water catches are getting more prevalent as well as jacks along the deeper drop-offs.

TAILHUNTER ROAD TOUR 2018

It’s show time again! Jill and Jonathan are hitting the road with their booth and will be on the road for the next 3 months and coming to a show near you soon to talk about La Paz fishing!

Here we go!  On the road again for our 23rd year with Tailhunter Sportfishing in La Paz!  We’ll be at a different fishing/ hunting expo every week and we’d love to see you and talk about fishing in La Paz.  Our first show will at the Denver Convention Center for the International Sportsmen’s Expo!  It runs Thursday to Sunday JANUARY 11-14, 2018.

It’s always a great show and Denver is one of our favorite cities with lots of friends to see and visit.  Tons to see and over 600 vendors from all over the world with fishing, hunting, camping, boating and more .Come by with the family  and say hi.  You can get discount tickets at O’Reilly Auto Parts around the Denver and surrounding areas.

FELIZ NAVIDAD!

Wherever you are, from our Tailhunter Family to yours, may you have a safe, happy and peaceful holidays and Christmas!

That’s our story!  God bless!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Dec. 3-10, 2017

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT for WEEK of Dec. 3-10, 2017

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Sunny, but incredibly windy almost all week with rough water.  Diminishing somewhat this week, but winds will still blow.

Water – Have to pick and chose your spots carefully.  Waters can get rough.

Fishing – When you can get out, still blue water species hovering.

One one of the rare days that the wind wasn’t blowing, our amigo, Roger Thompson, got out and worked that north side of Cerralvo Island near La Reina and dragging a Rapala X-rap 30 deep hooked this hog wahoo that even he had trouble holding up for the photo! Still wahoo and tuna around just tough to get out this past week!

 

One man’s junk is another man’s treasure! With all the wind, the “calm” channel between Las Arenas/ La Ventana and Cerralvo Island is kicking up perfectly for the windsurfers that descend this time of year to catch wind!

 

WIND AND WAVES MAKE FISHING TOUGH

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 3-10, 2017

Not much to say this week.  A good week for snowbirds to enjoy some beach time or shopping or hanging out in a restaurant watching the ocean because it definitely wasn’t the greatest week to be on the water.  The strong devastating winds that plagued firefighters in Southern California with Santa Ana ferocity also blows down the Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez as well.   Borders don’t stop winds!  Maybe not as strong, but enough to kick up waves and chop and big swells, even in the normal calm waters inside La Paz Bay.

So, the window of opportunity for any fishing this week was limited to either hearty (crazy) souls who probably got beat up out there or earlier in the week.  There’s still fish out there.  Not much fishing north of town because the winds are from the north so almost all the fishing is out’ve Muertos Bay / Las Arenas/ Punta Perrico and Cerralvo Island where there’s some limited protection.
Some yellowfin tuna are still hanging out, but live bait is hard to come by.  Dorado are still in the area up to about 15 pounds and we also had some wahoo chase the Rapalas closer to the island.  Some of the wahoo ran 20-40 pounds or larger.  Wind should be diminishing a bit this week.  And town should start getting a bit more crowded as folks come in for the holidays.

ALMOST TIME FOR THE WHALES TO SHOW UP – BOOKING NOW and FILLING FAST

The whales should start showing up in about a month.  Best times are January to early March with mid – February an ideal time to get close to these magnificent animals in the calm waters of Magdalena Bay.  It’s a fantastic family experience.  We can book the whole package for you as a day trip or overnight adventure including lodging, food, transportation and guided trips to the whales from La Paz.  Just e-mail us at:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com .

CHRISTMAS IDEAS!

Just saying…if you’re still stumped about a unique Christmas gift, how about a vacation trip to La Paz this year?  You don’t have to know the dates right now.  We’ll figure it out later!  But what a great surprise to give a customized trip to  the angler on your list or…every year we have fishermen giving a trip “to their wives and girlfriends.”  (No, it’s NOT like giving them a vacuum cleaner!).   And there’s plenty of things to do besides fishing in Baja!  Just tell us what you want to do and how long you want to stay.  Lots of options on activities and hotels!
Makes a great:
  • Wedding Gift
  • Graduation Gift
  • Employee Incentive Gift
  • Retirement Gift
  • Anniversary Gift
 Just let us know and we’ll customize the trip for you and send you a gift certificate too!  Write to:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com .  Or Jilly@tailhunter.com
That’s our story!
Best fishes!

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO FISHING REPORT for WEEK of Nov. 26-Dec. 3, 2017

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Nice beach weather.  Sunny and warm, but breezy.  No humidity.  Perfect get-away if it’s raining or snowing back home where you’re from!

Water – Getting cooler and rougher.  Some days very windy.

Fishing – Surprising that we still have bluewater species like dorado and tuna around!

THE BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

Miles Wagner from Colorado Springs CO staying at his dad’s place in Muertos Bay at the Rancho Costa Hotel, put this big-headed bull dorado into the boat just outside Muertos!

Kevin Shiotani from Thousand Oaks CA makes several trips a year to fish in La Paz and always does well. He poses with three nice dorado on the beach at Bahia de los Muertos.

Todd Stumpy and friends found some tuna and dorado fishing with us on a calm day in Muertos. Surprising to find tuna and dorado still around!

Headed for the grill, Captain Jorge stuck this dorado!

Lots of bookings coming in for our upcoming whalewatching season that starts in January and goes through March. Get in touch with us and we’ll set up a whole package for you and the family!  Contact us soon.  Makes a great Christmas present!

LULL BETWEEN HOLIDAYS STILL HOLDS LATE FISH

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay / Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 25-Dec. 3, 2017

 

Not many fisher-folk in town right now. This is that “lull” between the holidays and it’s a really nice time to be in town. Sunny and relatively warm and good beach weather although not always great to be on the water fishing because it can still be windy and rough. But, onshore it’s really pleasant and compared to other places in the world where winter is already hitting, La Paz is a great place to be. Best of all, in-between holidays is one of my favorite times. No one is here! It’s almost like the clock got turned back about 20 or 30 years! It’s really quiet. There’s a few snowbirds around, but not quite yet and the boulevards and streets are empty sometimes and it’s just the ocean and palm trees and a good time to hang out in a restaurant or read a book!

As far as fishing, in between bouts of winds, this past week wasn’t too very bad, but like I said, not many folks are fishing. This coming week, the forecasts call for some very strong double-digit winds.

However, for the folks that did go out, the best fishing was from Muertos Bay where it’s a bit more protected and fish are closer. Given the time of year and winter conditions increasing, surprisingly the fishing isn’t bad. In fact, there’s still some nice dorado hanging out and remarkably some of the dorado are larger than the ones we were getting during the regular season. There’s also some billfish hanging out and scattered tuna here and there.

Besides the winds, the biggest issue is getting live bait as the waters get colder and waves batter the areas where we catch the schools of sardines. So, we’re relying on lures and dead bait like calamari which will become more prevalent as we head into winter. Still, it’s nice to get warm-water species this late in the season.

Inshore, there’s jack crevalle, small cabrilla, sierra, bonito and snapper for the light tackle folks which are a lot of fun.

That’s our story!

Best fishes!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Nov 19-25, 2017

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT FOR Nov. 19-26, 2017

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Getting cooler, but mostly great sunshine with highs in the mid-80’s and nights are in the mid-70’s. Getting breezier, especially the mornings and late afternoons.

Water – Surprisingly warmer than normal, but gradually cooling off

Fishing – If the conditions are right, there’s still blue-water species around like dorado, tuna, billfish and wahoo.

BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

Wow! Right in Muertos Bay, a November sailfish after a season of very few sailfish, young Miles Wagner, got caught and released this sail not far from his dad’s place at Rancho Costa there in the bay.

She just caught and released as striped marlin, but brought this nice fat yellowfin tuna back for dinner, Lisee Ferguson from Colorado Springs CO had a nice week of fishing. She’s there on the beach at Muertos Bay.

Not bad for one day of winter fishing for Peter Wiejaczka who got 4 similar dorado plus lost a wahoo.

Da head fella! It’s Gary Wagner with a yellowfin tuna no doubt to get ready for the dinner menu at his great place in Muertos Bay, Rancho Costa Resort.

LATE SEASON BLUE WATER SPECIES STILL HANGING IN THERE!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Report for Week of Nov. 19-26, 2017

Hope everyone had a spectacular, safe and happy Thanksgiving week!

Down here…

Still surprisingly OK fishing for blue-water pelagic species right now given how late in the season it is. It’s a simple formula. If the winds are blowing and it’s rough…as can be the case this time of year…it’s gonna be tough to fish. Or impossible. Or dangerous.

If the weather is cooperating, then there’s still some tuna, dorado, wahoo and billfish to be had. The biggest issue on those days, might be getting live bait. With the turbulent waters, it crashes on areas where the live bait is often holding which scatters the baits. With this happening every few days, it makes it hard to find the bait when the waters are calm and we have folks out fishing. So, often we’re using dead bait like squid or frozen baits…which seem to work OK.

Weather is nice, if you’re not out on the water and just coming to hang on the beach. It’s what a lot of folks are doing these days. Mostly a lot of snowbirds coming to enjoy the 80 degrees sunshine.

WHALE WATCHING SEASON COMING UP!

The incredible calm waters of Bahia Magdalena

Meet and greet time by the local visitors!

Whalewatching season kicks off in January and will extend through March.  Best time is February as prime time to get close to these awesome creatures in the calm waters of Bahia Magdalena.  It’s a fantastic trip for the entire family and not to be missed.  Let us know and we can set up a trip of a lifetime.  We can put entire packages together.

NOT TOO EARLY FOR 2018 SEASON RESERVATIONS!

Lots of ice chests full of fish went home last season after a great year in 2017. Lots of spots already filling for 2018. Don’t miss out! Check with us!

It’s not too early to be thinking about your 2018 La Paz fishing trip to visit us!  After an incredible 2017 that saw some of the best fishing in years, alot of our anglers went right home and started booking for next year to get their favorite captains and hotel rooms.  Let us know what we can do to set up YOUR 2018 La Paz adventure and we’ll set up the whole package for you.

Also, La Paz fishing trips make great gifts too!  Contact us and we’ll put a package together and a gift certificate too!

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing For Week of Nov. 12-19, 2017

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

I’m sorry…I gotta skip this week.  After almost 10 straight months of 16-20 hour days, my voice is shot and so is my brain!

I’ll give a round up next week!  Oh…and my video camera is on the blink too! Thanks for understanding!  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Can’t really ask for more pleasant weather.  Love this time of year.  Daytime high 80’s.  Nights are high 60’s low 70’s.  Really pleasant time to be in town.  Lots of sunshine which is why all the snowbirds are flocking back to town and tourists are escaping colder climes.

Water – It’s the wind.  Nice to be in town, but winds are getting stronger. Many days rough water and not so good to be out on or under the water

Fishing – Not bad if the winds aren’t blowing.

 

Cary McDermott from Las Vegas squeezed in one day of fishing with his buddies, Mike Devine and Jim Stephenson with Captain Armando and picked one day when the winds were down and got one yellowfin and a 1/2 dozen dorado between 8-16 pounds. Nicely done!

LATE SEASON TUNA DORADO AFTER WINDS

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 12-19, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Hope you have a safe, happy and peaceful holiday week!  Gracias a Dios!

Mostly a lot of snow-birds coming to town now and not so many vacationers/ fishermen although this past week we had a full-house in La Paz with the Baja 1000 coming to town and a lot of fun. However, the majority of visitors now aren’t coming to fish. Maybe a day-or-two. Like I said, many are snowbirds visiting from colder places, not coming specifically to La Paz because it’s a fishing destination . They’re coming because even though it’s “winter”, it’s still a great sunny place to hang out in 80 degree temperatures!

But, just as well, because from November to April or so, is our off-season and north winds are already blowing stronger and stronger making it less than stellar conditions to be out on the water. Great to watch from a beachside cafe eating tacos and beer or with your toes in the sand, but there are days when even our tranquil little La Paz Bay is a cauldron of white-caps splashing spray on cars passing on the waterfront.

Even when the wind isn’t blowing especially hard, it’s blowing down the entire Sea of Cortez and it generates some big waves and swell. Large enough that either it’s simply too rough to be out there or impossible to get out and off the beach.

We’ve already suspended our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet fishing for the season because of the erratic weather so we’re fishing only with our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet out’ve Muertos Bay where the bay faces south and we can launch right off the beach and, if it is especially rough, we can fish closer to shore.

Earlier this week, it was pretty windy out there and fortunately, no one wanted to fish, but later in the week, we got some folks out and surprisingly, for this late in the year, we still hung some nice football tuna of about 10-15 pounds and good numbers of dorado. There were also bonito, cabrilla and some sierra, so a nice variety and good action, especially since these were folks who were visiting town and really only had one day to go out on the water.

The fish weren’t too far off the beach, so no long boat rides even though there was some swell. This coming week, it looks like early in the week, we’ll have a carbon-copy of last week with the windier days early in the week and better conditions later from Thanksgiving Thursday on.

WHALE WATCHING SEASON COMING UP!

Time to start checking the calendar for whale watching season coming up.  Best times are late January to early March.  February is perfect!  Come get up close and personal with an incredible experience for the the entire family in the calm waters of Magdalena Bay.  We have complete packages to set up for you!

Contact us at: Jonathan@tailhunter.com  or Jilly@tailhunter.com

HOLIDAY THOUGHTS?

It’s not too early to think about booking for 2018.  We had a spectacular year this past season and lots of our anglers went right home and booked new dates for 2018.  Dates are filling so let us know if you’re looking at visiting us next year or want a particular hotel or especially a particular captain!

We also can put together gift packages as well.  How about a gift certificate for a 2018 La Paz fishing trip with Tailhunter?    Let us know!  We’d love to have you visit.

That’s our story!  God bless you and your family for Thanksgiving! Best fishes!
