La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Mar. 18-27, 2023

WINDS BACK – FISHING NO BUENO AGAIN

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of March 18-27, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Honestly, not a tremendous amount to report other than to apologize that it took so long for me to put together a new report.   I try to do them weekly, but circumstances prevented it.

For one, since our last report, we did a nice show in Bakersfield CA at the Kern Co. Fairgrounds, but I was still suffering the effects from the show the previous week.  At the Orange Co. Pacific Coast Sportsmans Show, I lost my voice the very first day!

It reduced me to painfully trying to shake hands and squawk trying to be heard above the din.  My voice still has not recovered so it was difficult to make our weekly video.  Further, somewhere in the interim, I also caught some kind of upper-respiratory crud that layed me low.

So, many apologies!

But, to be up-front, you didn’t miss much.

The winds came roaring back in Baja and you wouldn’t have recognized some of the famous picturesque beaches that are usually flat calm…like lakes…but reporting 4-8′ waves crashing onto the shore and lots of white-caps.

We did have a handful of hearty folks who booked despite my warnings, but ultimately, had to cancel.  One that did make it out, just got a few bonito.

However, by the end of the period, there were some small windows allowing some of our folks to get out and get into that nice yellowtail bite we’ve been having as well as some sierra and other inshore species.

But that was pretty much it.

And as the umpteenth storm moves towards California again,  we’re expecting more wind in the coming week.

BART HALL FISHING & BOATING SHOW – LONG BEACH CONVENTION CENTER

Another big reason I need my voice this week…

After a 2 year Covid hiatus, the famous Bart Hall (formerly Fred Hall) Fishing & Boating Show takes place this week from March 29-April 2nd.  That’s Wednesday to Sunday.  A huge 5-day event in the Long Beach Convention Center.

This will be the 76th year for the show and it promises to be a super show for everyone.  Bring the family.  Kids are free.  Tons to see in fishing, boating, camping and the outdoors!

Jill and I will be in the booth all 5 days and would love to talk to you.

Also, for the first time on our show circuit this year, we will have a limited number of our logo t-shirst and hats in various styles and colors.  Long sleeve and short sleeves too!  Including our roosterfish logo and our O.G. Blue Mermaid that first appeared almost 30 years ago and is rarely offered.

When we run out…that’s it!

Everything $20 cash.

That’s our story!

We’ll see you in Long Beach!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of March 10-17, 2023

WIND SLACKS – YELLOWTAIL and MORE BUST LOOSE!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Marc. 10-17, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Not a bad day! 3 yellowtail and a dorado headed for the ice chest for Pepe and Miguel!

Jorge Romero…has a well-deserved grin after landing this hefty yellowfin fishing at the southend of Cerralvo Island off the high spot where tuna as well has yellowtail have been breezing. He took advantage of lowered winds to get across the channel.

Captain Victor poses with Curtis Popp and his yellowtail joined by his family on the beach at Bahia Muertos.

Gary Wagner at his place at Costa Baja at Bahia Muertos. Gary has a knack for landing trophy cabrilla.

It must be the great shirt! Using both jigs and caballitos, Jorge shows off his catch of yellowtail and a singular tuna. He said he lost another 4 big fish in the rocks.

 

Scott Kratzmann and Steve Kehler had a nice bit of action squeezing in one day of fishing with several smaller yellowtail, bonito, sierra and Scott said they lost several other fish.

 

Miles Wagner with a toad yellowtail and a big smile. Staying at his dad’s place at Muertos Bay at Rancho Costa. Miles is from Colorado Springs CO.

What a difference a week or even a day-or-two makes!

It’s been one of the coldest, windiest roughest winters than we can remember in our almost 30 years in La Paz and it’s been close to impossible to get on the water, let alone to fish!  That’s why, even in a normal winter year,  we consider November to April to be off-season.

However, we know there are fish out there and really for the first time in months, we had a few days of manageable winds and calmer seas as the gusts diminished enough for locals and visitors to get out on the water.

It was some of the best fishing we’ve seen in a long time.

We knew yellowtail had moved into the area, but for a few days this week, they were crashing the boats all over the La Paz area!  North, south and east sides of Cerralvo Island were hot as well as points around Espirito Santo Island.  Areas near Bahia Muertos, Punta Perrico and Punta Arenas also produced fish that ran from 10-40 pounds with many fish lost in the rocks, reefs or just because it’s like hooking a freight train!

A nice day’s catch laid out o the cutting table of yellowtail.

As well, some nice-grade 30-70 pound yellowfin tuna were also hooked.

Many of these are areas we could not have gotten to if the winds were blowing so the wind was really the dispositive factor.

The fish ate a variety of live baits including sardines, mackerel and caballitos.  They were also willing to hit y0-yo and knife jugs plus trolled deep-running Rapalas , Yo-zuris and Nomads.

Inshore, there was some great action as well on cabrilla, sierra, jack crevalle, bonito and snapper.  Plus some free-swimming dorado were also boated.

The captains have their work cut out for them…so to speak. Lots of fish to clean and fillet! It’s a good thing!

GRANDADDY COMING UP!

Just finished a fun show at the Kern Co. Fairgounds in Bakersfield with the Central Valley Fishing Boating and RV show.  Thanks to everyone who came by to say hi and chat us up at the booth about coming to fish in La Paz.

Now, it’s onto one of the most highly anticipated shows of the year.  It’s back!  It’s been the big show for 75 years!

Long Beach Convention Center for the Bart Hall Fishing and Boating Show.

After a 2-year hiatus, it’s back and promises to be a super show.  Great gear, boats, RV’s, seminars, activities and more!  We’ll be in the booth a full 5-days from Wednesday to Sunday!  Come see us!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Feb. 26-March 8, 2023

“COLDEST WINDIEST WINTER…IN FOREVER!”

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Feb. 26-March 9, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

Nice catch of yellowtail for Paul Le Claire and his amigo who found a little window between winds to hook these tasty forktails.

There’s lots of good eating on the table as Gary Wagner, who owns the Rancho Costa Resort poses with Mauricio and his son and a whole mess of sierra.

Attorney General of Kansas, Kris Korbach with Gary and some unseasonable dorado caught outside of Bahia Muertos. There must be some warmer water around!

I’m sorry for not posting up sooner.  I know the report is later than normal, but we’re still on the road and I’ve been a bit under the weather plus losing my voice!

But, again, not really a whole lot to report.

The wind really dictate what’s going on and as I’ve heard so often this season, this is the “coldest and windiest” winter anyone can remember.  It very much mirrors what’s been going on for the entire west coast and much of the country with crazy cold, winds, snow, rain and more.

Not much of anyone on the water and many of the days, it’s so rough the port captain shuts down the port to all boating traffic.

The key is to find the small windows between the winds to get out on the water.  If you pick the right day, there’s quite a variety of species willing to bite.

Colder water species like yellowtail, amberjack, sierra, pargo, cabrilla and snapper have been available over the reefs and rocks.  Some warmer water species like dorado have surprised us.  Live and dead bait is best, but casting lures have also been productive.

It does look like the yellowtail bite is starting to heat up.  Hot spots at the north end of Cerralvo Island as well as the south and east side of the island have been productive as well as parts off the rocks near Punta Perrico and Punta Arenas.  Some jags of the fish have also been hit around Espirito Santo Island as well.  The trick is finding those times when the wind isn’t blowing.

Some nice hog-size fish are getting taken and there have been schools of big breezing 100+ pound tuna that were moving too fast to jump on.

 

MAGDALENA BAY REPORT

We had Jim Gibson and his sons, Dan and Patrick out at Mag Bay with us for several days of whale watching and 2 days of fishing the mangroves.

Although the winds got to them, they had lots of whales in the bay coming up to their panga!

For their two days of fishing, they had plenty of action.  According to Jim:

“We caught Black Snook, Corvina, Pompano, Red Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Dog Snapper, Triggerfish, Broomtail Grouper, Spotted Bay Bass, Cabrilla (Spotted Cabrilla, I think), Pacific Porgy, various Grunts, Barred Pargo, and a pretty good sized Scorpionfish. And a couple of octopus, maybe some other species I’ve forgotten. And we got rocked by at least one huge grouper when Rigo took us outside the Bay to fish a favorite rock pile of his. We were under-gunned for that experience!”

TAILHUNTER ROAD TOUR

To anyone that came out to the Orange Co. Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa CA last week for the Pacific Coast Sportfishing Show, you had quite a treat with a super-great show with hundreds of vendors and sold-out crowds every day at the fairgrounds.

Thank you so everyone who came by and it was so great to see so many old friends and Tailhunter Nation after several years of no shows in S.California.   We had a great time and we’re looking forward to seeing you in La Paz this year.  Thanks for you reservations.

Now onto…Bakersfield!

We’ll be at the Kern Co. Fairgrounds from March 11-13 from Friday to Sunday.  Great fun for the whole family.  In addition to the fishing halls, they will also have a hunting hall with guns and ammo plus the fairgrounds will be covered with RV’s and boats as well as great activities like the tractor pull and custom car exhibits.  Hope to see you there!

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Feb. 17-25, 2023

TOO WINDY TO FISH BUT WHALES HAVE

ARRIVED

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Bahia Muertos/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 17-25, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Still no one fishing because of the wind and cold.

We actually did have a few reservations, but in all cases either the winds shut things down or the clients took our advice.  They looked at the conditions and decided not to go out after all!  Smart thinking!

WHALES IN MAG BAY!

However, being whale watching season, we’ve got our whale watching season well underway as we take clients out to the Pacific side at the north end of Bahia Magdalena.  This is where the whales congregate during the winter in the warm shallow waters of the bay to mate and also give birth before returning north to the Bering Sea.  Lots of whales this year and clients have been having a great time!

Check out some of the videos and images!

THANK YOU NASHVILLE AND HEADED BACK TO SO CAL!

Just finishing up a most fantastic week in Nashville TN for the Safari Club International Convention and Expo held in downtown Nashville.  Being our first time at this event, we didn’t quite know what to except.

However, the turnout and fun far exceeded anything we could have imagined!  We had folks flying in from Europe, Canada, Alaska and South America and I talked to probably folks from 20 or 30 states with something close to 20,000 attendees over 4 days.  There were hunting and fishing booths from over 100 countries exhibiting!

We met and booked so many new and old amigos to come fishing with us this year and just wanted to give a shout-out to Nashville for all the hospitality!

But now…flying back to S. California to the Costa Mesa Fairgrounds in Orange Co. for the Pacific Coast Sportsman’s Show.  It’s supposed to be the entire fairgrounds with over 500 vendors and exhibits so it should be a hoot for the entire family.

Jill and I will be in the booth from Thursday to Sunday so come see us and let’s get you set up for fishing in La Paz in 2023!  We are filling up fast!

Here’s more info about the show:

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Feb. 8-15, 2023

PORT CAPTAIN BLOCKS BOAT TRAFFIC

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 8-15, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ FISHING REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Not much to report from La Paz.  I wish I did!

A good portion of the week, the port captain shut things down for the port because the winds made it too precarious to be out on the water.  So, that meant no boat traffic coming or going.  Pretty hard to fish or do much else when you can’t get on a boat.  Even after the port was opened, most operators and outfitters in town had already cancelled scheduled trips not knowing when the port captain would open things up again.  So, unless you were a windsurfer or kite boarder, you really didn’t have many options except sit by your hotel pool with a cold one.
We don’t usually have many bookings between November and April because of the rough weather, but the few we had this week all had to be cancelled because of the winds.

THE PARTY IS BACK!

For the first time in years, they’re bringing back the the La Paz Carnaval!
It’s going to be a mega-party lasting until next Tuesday with food, rides, parades, concerts and the biggest street fair of the year.  After being shut down for covid, the town is ready to bust out for carnaval.
The parades go right by our Tailhunter Restaurant and having multiple stories, we have a great grandstand to the fun on the street!
If you’re in town this week, come by and come down to enjoy th festivities!

GREAT TO BE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AGAIN!

After a month of shows in snow, winds, ice, rain and hail,  it’s nice to be back in Southern California again and see the beach and put on the shorts and flip-flops!
From Thursday to Sunday, we’ll be in our booth at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego right on the beach for the Bart Hall Fishing and Boating Show.  You may remember these as the Fred Hall Shows.  After a 3 year-hiatus, the shows are back and we’re excited to be back for the first of 4 shows in Southern Cal.   So, come out and say hi and let’s set you up for visiting us in La Paz in 2023!
That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Feb. 1-7, 2023

MORE WIND and EVEN SOME RAIN KEEPS

FOLKS OFF WATER

La Paz – las ARenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Feb. 1-7, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

It’s sounding like a broken record lately, but often, it’s important to report what is NOT happening  so folks get the whole picture.

Basically, fishing was NOT happening this past week, but it has not really been happening for weeks as winds kept things rough and blustery as often happens between November and April.  It’s off-season specifically for that reason.   It’s too rough to be out unless you’re a windsurfer or kiteboarder.

However, this past week even witnessed rainfall as well on-and-off for two days.

Just being honest.  I tell everyone before they book with us this time of year that weather can be “iffy.”  We had folks interested in fishing and others who were hoping to get out diving and snorkeling.  In all situations, when we saw the weather forecasts, we told them it was not going to happen.

This coming week doesn’t look much better.  Although there’s no rain in the extended forecast, as of this writing, the port captain has shut down all boat traffic until further notice . That means no boat traffic is allowed in or out of the harbor because of the winds.

Hopefully, things will calm down a bit soon because we do know that there’s fish to be caught.  That includes dorado, sierra, jacks, yellowtail, pargo, snapper, cabrilla and even some wahoo.  However, as long as there are storms happening north of the border, it will have an effect on the weather down in our areas.

WHALESHARK SEASON CANCELLED

Swimming with the whalesharks will have to wait this year.  Normally, the season runs October to April.  However, because of lack of animals, the season wasn’t even opened until December.

Normally, the animals are hanging out in the shallow waters of La Paz Bay.  However, because there are so few whalesharks, the remainder of the whaleshark season has been suspended until further notice.

THANK YOU SALT LAKE CITY!

Good to see old friends and meet new ones at the Western Hunt Show. Our amigos here are all celebrating the fact that all of them will be coming to see us this June!

Thank you to everyone who came to visit us at the massive Western Hunting Expo in downtown Salt Lake City.  Wow!  What a great show and so great to chat with so many of you.  Estimates that almost 50,000 attendees came to the show over 4 days!  Just incredible.  Here we are re-packing our booth.

We are now on the road having left the snows of Salt Lake City and headed towards S. California for the Bart Hall Fishing & Boating Show in San Diego at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

After a 3 year hiatus, the Hall Shows are back and everyone is excited.  This will be the first of 3 shows in S.California and we hope to see you there!

So, we’re brushing off the snow and headed to sunny So. Cal!

See you soon!

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 23-30, 2023

NOT MUCH HAPPENING EXCEPT COLD and

WINDY

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 23-30, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

As you can tell, it’s not the best weather for fishing looking at the sky and also how the guys are bundled up, but a nice variety of fish on one of the day when the wind didn’t blow so hard. In addition the yellowtail, there’s a couple of nice cabrilla, a sierra, a snapper and a bonito.

It’s a bit awkward when you’re the captain and guide and YOU catch fish, but the local client can’t hook any! Captain Pancho was just off the rocks at Bahia Muertos when he hooked this while jigging in the rough water. Again, you can tell it’s not the greatest weather.

Gary and Miles Wagner at Gary’s place at Rancho Costa in Bahia Muertos got out on one of the better days and got some tasty pompano and a tuna which are unusual to hook this time of year.

This is that time of the year from November to April when the fishing reports and not only boring to read, but also kinda boring to write!  But, sometimes, maybe it’s just as important to tell you what is NOT happening.  Especially, if you’re planning to visit on a vacation.

It was another especially cold and windy week with some gusts up to about 25 mph at times with cloudy skies and cold temps that kept even alot of locals inside and had us lighting our sidewalk heaters at our Tailhunter Restaurant on the La Paz waterfront.

There were a few little gaps here and there and it’s mostly locals fishing who have the ability to get out for a few hours of fishing then run quickly back in when it gets blustery or can check the weather forecasts and pick specific days to get on the water.

Reports from them as well as friends who are commercial fishermen (who HAVE to go out to make al living) indicate that there’s a little jag of tuna at the south end of Cerralvo Island if you can make that bumpy ride across the channel.

There are also a few stray dorado here and there.  However, most of the catch has been yellowtail, some smaller amberjack, sierra, bonito, snapper and cabrilla…all inshore fish.

Live and dead bait as well as jigs have worked best.

WESTERN HUNT & CONSERVATION EXPO

This coming week, the Tailhunter Show Tour takes us to Salt Lake City for the massive Western Hunt & Conservation Expo.  Always a giant show with almost 1000 exhibitors, vendors, outfitters, guide services and more covering the floor of the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City.

We’re looking forward to seeing so many of our Tailhunter Tribe members who always come to visit and book their trips for 2023.  Jill and I will be in the booth every day from Thursday to Sunday, Feb. 2-5.  We hope to see you there.

Here’s more information about the show and how to get tickets:

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 15-22, 2023

COLD and WINDY WEEK BUT…

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 15-22, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Local La Paz amigos out’ve Bahia Muertos with a great day catch of cabrilla, sierra, bonito and even a couple of dorado!

Fernando was out with our Captain Pancho and was able to get across the channel to the south side of Cerralvo Island and got this hefty slugger yellowfin tuna on dead sardines.

As storms battered much of the U.S. this week, especially the west coast, it also had an effect on Baja and for us in La Paz.  For most of the week it was cold and windy so fishing opportunities were limited which is pretty typical for this time of year.

Most of the folks who were out are locals who have flexible schedules and can pick-and-choose which days or even what hours are best for diminished winds.

Not surprisingly, there are fish to be caught.

If you can make your way across the rough channel to the south end of Cerralvo Island, there has been a little jag of 50-100 pound tuna.  Nothing wide open, but a few have been hooked, especially by commercial panga fishermen.   But, it can be a really rough ride out there especially with the winds roaring down the channel.

Not surprisingly, however, there is a nice mix of fish closer inside including sierra, jacks, cabrilla, snapper and even some dorado which is surprising and leads me to believe there’s still some warm water patches around.  Bait is not a problem and jigs and lures are working effectively also.

THANK YOU RENO!

Thanks to everyone who came to visit us at our booth in Reno, Nevada last week for the Wild Sheep Foundation Show at the Reno/Sparks Convention Center.  It was great fun and great chatting with lots of old and new amigos and glad many of you signed up to come down.

It was also fun (for us, but maybe not for alot of others) to get snow.  Living in Mexico, it’s quite a novelty to get snow, but know that last week wasn’t fun for many of our friends especially in California with all the rain and snow.

This is the view from our hotel room as the snow started to fall about 2 hours into a 2 day storm in Reno.

Our next show is a BIG ONE.  One of the largest we will have this year. It’s the

WESTERN HUNT & CONSERVATION SHOW

Feb. 2-5

SALT PALACE CONVENTION CENTER

SALT LAKE CITY UT

This is a view of only about 1/3 of the show floor

It’s our only show in Utah this year, but it’s massive and if you’re anywhere near the area, you can spend all 3 days in the show and still never see all the hunting, fish, camping, RV’s and more.  We’ll be in our booth all 3 days to talk about coming to La Paz.  Just look for the booth that has a bunch of our Tailhunter Nation friends hanging out there!

We’re filling up really fast so let us know if you want to come visit us this year to come fishing!

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Jan. 8-14, 2023

STILL WINDY BUT SOME SURPRISE TUNA POP

UP!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 8-14, 2023

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Our amigo and owner of famous Giggling Marlin Bar in Cabo, Gary Wagner (r) was hosting some friends at his place at Bahia Muertos Rancho Costa including former Golden State Warrior Clifford Ray had quite a day. They found a window between bouts of wind and got over to Cerralvo Island where they hit snapper, sierra and surprising yellowfin tuna.

_________________

We had the usual windy rough conditions most of the week, but earlier in the week some windows of opportunity popped up and we got some friends out from Bahia Muertos.  They tell me there’s a ton of sardines out there and the waters are loaded with sierra.  They got out to the south end of Cerralvo Island and found some 50-pound grade yellowfin tuna on dead sardines.  Plus added in some pargo and sierra as well. Winds came up later in the week again and shut things down.

It’s been mostly sunny with temperatures in the high 70’s in the days and in the high 50’s at night.  The extended forecast is showing the winds will be down early in the week, but mid-week the winds will really ramp up and there’s a good chance the port captain will shut down boat traffic and close the port.

TAILHUNTER ROAD TOUR 2023 DOWN THE ROAD…

We’re just finishing up an amazing showing at the Wild Sheep Foundation Convention at the Reno Convention Center.  Thank you to everyone who came to visit us in our booth and welcome to our old and new Tailhunter amigos.  To many of you, thank you especially for your reservations!  We’re looking forward to having you visit us this year in La Paz!

Here’s our show schedule for the next few weeks!  Hope we’ll see you at one of our shows.  But, don’t wait.  We’re filling up really fast so get in touch with us so we can set you up for fishing with us in La Paz.

FEW FISHERMEN OUT DUE TO WINDS BUT

FISH ARE THERE!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Jan.1-7, 2023

THE MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Gama Santiago (on the right) and his amigo, Ivan, bundled up and had a surprisingly good day and a great mix of fish including amberjack, dorado, yellowtail and bonito. The fish were caught with a mix of live sardines and also using vertical jigging.

Miles Wagner with dad, Gary, owner of Rancho Costa in Bahia Muertos were out jumping all over the sierra. Gary says there’s lots of bait and the sierra are thick!

Nice yellowtail hamachi of Gama. He was using a yo-yo jig on the fish.

A mostly sunny week with nice temps between the mid-50’s and mid-60’s, but still not many folks on the water because of northern winds roughing up the waters.  We had to cancel several trips because of it.

However, here and there some folks got out and found some windows of opportunity to get out in between gusts.  Many of the folks we do get out are locals who have the opportunity to have flexible schedules to find the better days or else tourists who have wiggle-room in their vacation agendas to avoid the windier times.

Surprisingly, there’s still some dorado around which are usually gone by October or November.  That leads me to believe there’s still some warm water patches here and there.  However, most catches were colder water fish like small yellowtail and numerous sierra as well as bonito, jacks and cabrilla.

There’s lots of live sardines around although yo-yo jigs have also been productive if you can keep them out’ve the rocky bottoms.
