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!

We’ll see you in Washington!

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!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Dec. 1-8, 2019

LULL BETWEEN THE HOLIDAYS

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 1-8, 2019

 

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

The Big Picture and the Rest of the Story…

 

Amigo, Roger Thompson made it out to the south end of Cerralvo Island between bouts of wind and trolled up this nice wahoo.

Roger was pulling a dark Rapala looking for wahoo when this hefty yellowfin tuna ripped his line.

Typical catch right now…some inshore reef fish like the cabrilla and trigger fish; mix in some bonito and a bonus dorado. All close to shore.

Not too many folks fishing these days in the gap between Thanksgiving and Christmas and town almost seemed deserted this week, but the crowds will eventually come.

 

The city is nicely moving into Christmas mode!

 

Winds were a little milder than normal so some folks were able to get out fishing.  Most of the fishing was inshore for jack crevalle, snapper, and cabrilla, although some larger pargo were reportedly lost.   Bonito schools can be problematic or a lot of fun depending on your point of view.

 

There are still some small schools of dorado running around with most fish in the 10-15 pound class.

 

When winds are down, there’s some good action with bait on light tackle for some nicer grade of tuna in the 40-80 pound range that can be tough battles on the smaller line that get them to bite.  Rapalas like the darker deep-runners also kicked up some wahoo.

 

 

 

That’s our story!

MAKING THE MOST OF WINDOWS OF OPPORTUNITY…Between 

Storms!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 17-24, 2019

 

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

He makes several trips a year to La Paz and Kevin Shiotani from Thousand Oaks always does well. He’s on the beach at Bahia Muertos near La Paz with this big tuna estimated at 90 pounds that he took near Cerralvo Island on light tackle. He also put some dorado in the panga as well. Over the years, Kevin has caught some of the largest fish we’ve seen.

Dana Hohn was visiting La Paz from Texas and staying with relatives in La Ventana but got out several days near Cerralvo Island and put several wahoo like this one in the boat trolling Rapalas.

Behind that fish is Kevin Hohn. Visiting from Texas with his wife, they hooked 11 wahoo over 3 days.

 

Not many anglers in town as we approach the holidays and the week started out stormy and windy and tailed off at the end-of-the-week with windy and stormy weather.  The kiteboarders and windsurfers are enjoying this for a reason, but not such great weather for fishing.

 

There were a few days mid-week that gave us a few windows of opportunity.  The better fishing has been out’ve Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay which is at least a little more protected from the northern winds and bigger water that’s common this time of year.

 

As mentioned, not many anglers out, but those few who got out found some surprisingly nice wahoo fishing by Cerralvo Island with 20-40 pound fish willing to hit those dark-colored Rapalas and Yo-Zuri Magnums.  Multiple hook-ups were not uncommon.  The same area also produced some hefty tuna bites wit 50-100 pound class ahi, although most fish were lost because they would only bite light line resulting in some long drawn-out battles that usually favored the fish and beat up the angler!

 

When we couldn’t get to the island, fishing concentrated inshore for some decent dorado, cabrilla, snapper, bonito and jack crevalle.

 

Looks like a bit more rain and wind in the forecast.

 

That’s our story!

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

FEW FISHERMEN TAKE ADVANTAGE of WEATHER

WINDOWS

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

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Gary Wagner has caught lots of big fish, but knew he had a battle on his hand when he switched down to 25-pound test fluorocarbon and this big yellowfin tuna bit the lines.  He was on the fish for more than 3 ½ hours!  Gary owns the Giggling Marlin Bar in Cabo San Lucas but was staying at his Rancho Costa in Muertos Bay near Las Arenas.

Don Fee was in town from Florida and we got him out on the water for one day for his first time and he said he had bites all day producing some dorado, cabrilla, bonito and even some small roosterfish.

He said he was embarrassed to admit this fish took about 4 hours to put in the boat, but Roger Thompson has caught bigger tuna, but few that were this scrappy and he had to do it on 40 pound test.  “It pulled the panga,” he told us.  Roger was fishing the south side of Cerralvo Island across from Las Arenas.

Efrain and Patrick hold up a couple of their dorado with Captain Jorge.

Don caught and released a couple of these fiesty little roosterfish in Bahia Muertos. He let them grow so they’ll be the big 60-pounders in the spring-time!

Great eating pargo! Gary said he could have caught these all day long on light tackle just south of Bahia Muertos towards Boca de Alamo.

Three dorado! Dinner for Don to pack up and bring back to La Paz.

There were some blustery days that it was good no one was fishing, but there were some nice days too.  The problem was…no one was fishing!  Snow birds have started to descend on La Paz to enjoy the sunshine and our new Malecon, but the off-season has started and not much of anyone fishing these days because the winds are unpredictable.

 

However, we did have some folks out and on the days it wasn’t bumpy and windy, there were some fish to be caught.

 

Most suprising were the big tuna hung on the south side of Cerralvo Island.  Go figure.  Everyone leaves and all the fishermen are pretty much gone and the big tuna show up.

 

These were pretty beastly animals.  The ranged from 60-100 pounds and there weren’t many of them, but the ones that did bite would only eat light line which is incredibly problematic when you are using 25-40 pound line and a powerful tuna crunches your bait.   These fish required 3-4 hours of backbreaking battles to get them to the boats!

 

For other species, there’s still some decent dorado around running 10-15 pounds or so.  Not a lot, but enough to keep it interesting.  Mix in some bonito, jack crevalle, a few pargo and snapper and the occasional little roosterfish and it could be a fun day.

 

That’s our story!

Hope you have a great Veteran’s Day Weekend and thank you all who have served!

WINDS SHUT DOWN MUCH OF THE WEEK

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

Mexican Minute Video Fishing Report

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

First day out he hits the home run! With Captain Gerardo, Jeff Wedekind who owns the Chinook Shore Lodge in Ketchican, Alaska locked up this big wahoo.

 

Nice tuna for Rich Choate from Idaho. One of the few YFT’s hooked this week.

Amigo, Roger Thompson, was soaking a dead mackerel down deep off the Punta Arenas lighthouse when he got slammed by this toad yellowtail.

Maybe one of the largest dorado of the season, Jeff hooked this one out’ve Bahia Muertos.

Barbara Choate always has a great smile no matter what and she’s got a reason with his pretty blue dorado.

Colorful shot! Roger Sauvegeau from Boise, Idaho, had just one day to fish, but got himself a nice load of dorado like this one fishing with our Tailhunter La Paz fleet.

 

Captain Armando with Randy and Barbara Choate and a nice batch of dorado.

Celebrating her honeymoon, Coral Ogden Hart has been our amigo since she was a little girl. She got this unusual rainbow runner off Bahia Muertos. These are cousin to the yellowtail.

Our good amigos from the Imperial Valley of California, Craig and Cathy Corda posing with a little Bahia Muertos yellowtail they released.

Another set of our fun friends from Idaho, Teri and Mac Christopherson hold up a double-hooke-up of dorado.

They always keep me laughing. Tom and Claire Ames posing on the beach at Bahia Muertos.

Captain Pancho took Dan Friedman from San Diego out for one day and he got this nice dorado as well as a wahoo on his first try!

You can tell waters are getting colder when rainbow runners like this one by Rick Choate, show up.

A good day in November! Teri and Mac Christopherson.

Paul Octavio had himself a good week on the flyrod like with his fun roosterfish hooked and released. He had a blue marlin on the flyrod one day.

Clair McPherson took 20 minutes on this nice bull dorado giving Captain Victor and her a big reason to smile when they finally got the pretty fish in the boat.

Cheers! Rick Choate with a mess of good eating cabrilla, snapper and a trigger.

 

On the good side, the sun was out all week and the snowbirds from Canada, Alaska, Europe and colder areas are filtering into town.  On the downside, it wasn’t the best for fishing.

 

Northern winds ramped up and it’s just the start.  This is what happens during the colder months.  Two days we couldn’t even go out because the Port Captain shut down the port to all boat traffic and there were several other days when it would have been better if we had just not gone out at all.

 

The strong winds have the waters stirred up and dirty.  It brings in coolder greener waters as well.  Additionally, the currents and waves are up so makes for a less-than-comfortable day of fishing.  Plus, if the waves are crashing the shallow areas, it makes it hard to get bait.

 

However, kudos to our anglers and captains for hanging in there.  They braved the rougher seas with tight grins and still caught some fish.

 

There weren’t a lot of fish caught unless you’re counting bonito, jack crevalle and needlefish.  However, some of the largest dorado of the season were hooked as well as a few wahoo and tuna.  We even had several marlin hook ups as well (fish were lost).

 

The better fishing was with our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet where it’s a bit more protected.  I imagine as the winds increase and become more frequent, we’ll be doing most of our fishing from that area.

 

2020 RESERVATIONS

Bookings are already coming in pretty fast and heavy for 2020.  Some dates are already filled or filling and popular captains are getting reserved as well.  In 2019, we were sold out by March and 2020 looks even busier.  Don’t wait . Check your calendars so we make sure we get you locked in.

 

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Sept. 29-Oct.6, 2019

TUNA and WAHOO FINALLY?

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Sept. 29-Oct. 6, 2019

 

Mexican Minute Video Report

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

You never forget the first. Especially, when you have been trying for years like John Gibbs and Wiley Randolph who visit us every year and finally nailed their first wahoo…on the same day…on the same panga with Captain Pancho.

It’s easy to see why these guys are fun. With Captain Jorge, James Ekern, Corey Sowers and George Aun from Utah and a bunch of dorado.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First day and first time fishing with us, Steve Salbeck, rocked this big dog-tooth snapper with Captain Moncho. That’s alot of meat for the ice chest.

Eric Sanchez gives buddy Adam Nystuen with a nice wahoo they took off Bahia Muertos.

Scott Milligan and Dave Sedeno posing with their first day catch with quite a variety including, dorado, pompano and snapper .


Funny shot with Dana Murray our amigo from Washington who has a tuckered tongue out hefting this 50-pound class tuna to pose with Captain Armando.

A sweet-looking bull dorado and blue water! Brian Schwalbe gets some grins with Captain Luis who caught this with our Tailhunter La Paz fleet.

Captain Fili with another pompano and Rich Sisk and Scott Pepper hold up some of their first-day catch on the beach at Bahia Muertos.


Enjoying some Baja sunshine from Montana where it was snowing 30″ this week, Pepper Paul Hamlin has a couple of nice bull dorado and a great shirt!

Brothers who fish together, the Suzumoto brothers, Thomas, Luke and John with Captain Jorge. Couldn’t find nicer guys. With us for the first time.

This trio is trouble and always having fun catching a big rack of dorado to match their shirts, Nino Bonfiglio, Captain Victor and Jim Gatti.

Mark Self just had one day to fish and got one of the largest dorado of the week.

Wiley’s biggest dorado ever despite many trips to fish with us here in La Paz! He was fishing north of La Paz near Espirito Santo Island.

Brian had himself a nice week of fishing with this marlin his largest of the week and he shared the meat with his group.

Check out Al Jones and the variety of fish on the cutting board. He’s got dorado, white bonito, cabrilla, triggerfish and yellow snapper.

Our newly retired forestry amigos from Carson City NV, on their 2nd trip with us got a pile of dorado, triggerfish, pompano and jack crevalle.

A solid trophy barred pargo on the gaff for Chris Aiello. Great eating.

Kim Bell fought this nice plug yellowfin tuna for 45 minutes all by herself as it pulled the panga around. Good job!

Too cool from Colorado, Dave Van Steenkiste and Randall Sullivan got themselves a good batch of dorado for the day.

Great colors. Ken has another mahi for the box.

Gerardo gets into the photo with Bob Larson and Bill Bigelman who have a big pompano to go along with their dorado.

We finally got some wahoo in the boat! Wiley Randolph and Captain Pancho got the gaff in this big boy.


Early morning mahi! John Gibbs starts the day with a bull in the boat. Incredible colors.


Eric from Phoenix and Kendall from Denver on the beach at Bahia Muertos.

The man behind the mask with the huge bull is Brian Schwalbe.

Bob Manney is all smiles with his day’s fishing results. Bob is from Washington and visits us each year.

Captain Arcangel has been on our team for almost 25 years and is popular with many of our Tailhunter anglers. Take a look at the baby wahoo in his left hand. They thought it was a needlefish at first!

Tim Bell is all grins with Captain Jorge. Tuna and dorado headed to the fillet table.

Three of the best folks in the world…Captain Joel…Emily Duncan from Santa Barbara…our own Jorge Romero.

The Zuckerman brothers, Mike and Dave with a load of pompano, a barred pargo and a dorado. Lots of variety this past week.

Scott and Alfred after their first day with dorado, pompano, jack crevalle.

This is just funny…it’s not every day that the police inspector on the beach let’s loose and poses with the fishermen, but Angelo Oliverio, Captain Armando and Ken Campbell get a thumbs-up from the big man!


We probably could not have asked for a better week.  The seasons are changing and to go along with mild sunny temperatures and cool tropical breezes, the fish were on their game finally!

 

Whether you fished with our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet or our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet, there was no shortage of action.  Occasionally, one boat might be off-target, but for the most part, it was all the dorado you could possibly stand!

 

Limits or near limits of mahi were common with lots more released for being too small or over-limits.  We had some boat on some days back on the beach by 10 or 11 a.m. with happy anglers ready to hit the pool, nice lunch and a siesta! 

 

If there was any difference between our two fleets, the dorado seemed larger for our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet and for our La Paz Fleet, there were a lot more fish. .. but they tended to be smaller.  Most fish ran 10-15 pounds with occasional 20-35 pounders and larger fish lost.

 

In between the dorado, add a smattering of hard-fighting bonito, jack crevalle, a pargo or cabrilla and too many pesky needlefish and it was usually a fully day of bent rods and grinning clients! 

 

The highlights of the week were surely the jags of yellowfin tuna that finally popped up and landed in the boats.  Best spots were with our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet using live bait with the fish as small as footballs but as large as 50-pounders.  I wouldn’t go so far as saying we have a “tuna bite” starting up, but it’s encouraging to finally see some tuna in the boxes.

 

Even better was that we finally hit some wahoo as well.  We’ve been getting teased by biters for that last week or two, but none of the fish stuck and it’s been months since one was landed.  We lost a few more this week, but at least we also got some onto the gaffs and onto the fish cleaning tables.  They were nice 20-45 pound ‘hoos!

 

Waters are cooling down. Air temps are very moderate with minimal humidity.  Breezes are coming more from the north so the season is changing.  It’s really really pleasant here right now.

ALERT for 2020 FISHING WITH TAILHUNTERS!

Just a heads-up for all our Tailhunter amigos…we are really booking up fast for 2020!  This year 2019 we were largely sold out by MARCH!!!  Some dates for next year are already sold out. 

If you have some favorites dates, rooms hotels AND CAPTAINS, don’t hesitate. Do not wait until we come to your town at one of the sportsman’s shows.  We are even getting bookings for 2021 and we want to make sure we have you covered for fishing and visiting us next year!

 

 

That’s our story!
