La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of April 28-May 6, 2018

TUNA and BIG DORADO SAVE THE WEEK!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of April 30-May, 6, 2018

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

WEEK AT A GLANCE

Weather – Still windier than I would like, especially earlier in the week.  I’m starting to get upset.  It better stop soon!  Got better as the week went on.  Daytime temps hight 80’s and sunny.  Nights low 60’s

Water – Pretty blue and warming up. So why are we still getting cold water fish like sierra and yellowtail?

Fishing – Most of the week, it was sticky.  Decent action, but nothing too special.  Got way better late in the week.  Way mo’ bettah!

Catching – See “Fishing above.”  But, with bigger fish, catching got a little harder…BIGGER fish are tougher fish.  Some of our anglers got “played” and toyed with by the big fish!  LOL .  But if the fishing wasn’t good, there could be no “catching, ” right?

THE REST OF THE STORY

Wow! Now THIS is a good day of fishing! Captain Pancho hooked up Craig and his dad, Robert Hoffman with 8 yellowfin tuna, a dorado and a big dog-tooth snapper near Las Arenas!

Traci Weaver is an accomplished flyfisher from Oregon, but when big winds and waves made it tough, she grabbed a conventional rod for the first time. She said, “I didn’t even know which side was up and the handle seemed to be on the wrong side!” However, her first biter turned into a trophy dog-tooth snapper just off the rocks at Punta Perrico near Las Arenas with Captain Moncho of the Tailhunter Fleet.

Colorado in the house! Ed Eversol with his first tuna and a great pose on the beach at Bahia Muertos. Chunky yellowfin!

 

From San Diego, Rebecca Coxsey fished in La Paz for the first time with Tailhunter Sportfishing and got her first dorado and had fun with lots of bonito and pargo as well. She thought it was pretty funny that the dorado matched her bikini. The fish was caught just outside of Bahia de los Muertos.

 

It started this week a nice smattering of yellowfin at Muertos Bay…that got better. Dave Hill is from Grand Junction CO with this tuna.

Popular Captain Gerardo with Dr. Gianna Checa and some of their yellowfin tuna plus a few other assorted fish on the cutting table!

Pretty smile for Traci Weaver and the nice dorado she caught off Espirito Santo Island north of La Paz.

His first tuna…finally! Craig Hoffman visited us from Arizona and was able to spank this tough yellowfin tuna just outside Bahia de los Muertos near Las Arenas.

Dave and Bill Johnson share some photo time with Bill’s tuna!

Big bull for a big fella! Jason Robbins from Washington put the wood to this bull dorado fishing with our Tailhunter Fleet out’ve La Paz near Espirito Santo Island north of town.

Trophy grouper in the boat! Don’t see many of these, not because they’re not around, but getting them out’ve the rocks is quite a task. Marc Garrison from Chicago staying there in Muertos at Rancho Costa.

 

We don’t often have Captain Boli of our Tailunter La Paz fleet, but he’s got a big sonrie going on here with Mike Lohrey from Portland OR and one of several sizeable dorado he caught.

 

Another of our first-timers this week who rocked it! Louis Agassiz from Canada was in town for a wedding and only had limited time to fish. He had never fished in warm water before, but his first fish turned out to be our first marlin of the season. He also got this nice dorado! The marlin could not be released but the meat was shared.

 

A load of fish headed to the Tailhunter Restaurant for sashime and Hawaiian poke! This is Matt Bigalk with a couple of nice yellowfin tuna. Matt is from Colorado.

Our buddy, Gary Wagner, owner of Rancho Costa and the famous Giggling Marlin Bar in Cabo with one of several amberjack caught this week.

Rob Hoffman lost his first one but finally got his first yellowfin tuna into the panga! He’s from Scottsdale AZ. He has is “best fishing day ever!”

Marc Garrison from Chicago with another YFT! Just south of Cerralvo Island on the high spot.

It’s easier said than done to pose with a fresh powerful dorado and take a good photo when you’re tired and the fish is trying to whack you in the shins! But, Mike Lohrey poses with one of the larger dorado of the week!

These big bonito kept everyone busy when not much else was happening and believe me, they tore up some of our anglers. Mauricio Villanueva poses with a pig boney! Thanks for the photo, Gary Wagner!

Washington boys on deck with Jason Robbins, Brian Izzi and Dave Wentworth and quite a variety of fish taken with our Tailhunter La Paz fleet!

Barred pargo / pargo mulatto for Craig Hoffman just off Punta Perrico.

Marc has another one for the fish box. This time it’s a great eating pargo.

First amberjack showing of the season. This is Dr. Roy Stringfellow showing off his fish while staying at Rancho Costa there at Muertos Bay.

This is what guys from rainy Washington do when they come down here. Parting shot from Jason Robbins getting some sunshine.

 

The week started with a lot of promise.  The end of last week, it seemed like the fish were ready to go even with a full moon and windy conditions.  However, that’s what you get when you start guessing on Mother Nature.
The week started out pretty scratchy.  We had to work hard to find and get fish.  It wasn’t for lack of trying by the anglers or captains.  It’s just the way it was.  Big waves and winds didn’t help.  We did have some action, don’t get me wrong.  Thankfully, pargo, cabrilla, jack crevalle and big bonito kept rods bent when nothing else was happening but there just wasn’t any quality to the fish…nothing really to put in the ice chest or bring back to the restaurant!
Dangit!
Then…right at the end of the week, we recovered in the 9th inning!
Tuna and dorado saved our bacon!
Some slugger 15-30 pound yellowfin tuna showed up for our Tailhunter Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay fishers.  For many, their first experience on yellowfin and we lost some fish after some rough battles.  Actually, we had the best tuna bite of the season with the kind of tuna we don’t usually see until later in the year!
Also, we got wahoo bit and we also got our first marlin as well plus amberjack and a big dog-tooth snapper out’ve the rocks. The biggest thing was finding bait and waiting for winds to abate.  Tough time for many of our flyfishers.  They went to conventional gear and still had fun.
Our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet fared a bit bitter.  Good action in the rocks for snapper, pargo, big cabrilla and lots of big triggerfish plus a smattering of dorado and lots of huge bonito.  Then, like our Las Arenas fleet…the end of the week capped it off nicely when bigger dorado in the 10-30 pound class showed up and decided to chew!  Way fun, especially for a lot of our first-timers to see these big mahi charging through the water and hit the baits!  Just like the tuna… These are the size and type of dorado we normally don’t see until the fall and we have not seen this grade of fish in 2 seasons!
We saw schools of boiling tuna, but all moving too fast to jump on them.
Hopefully, things will continue to improve!
That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of March 18-25, 2018

NOT MUCH TO TELL YOU THIS WEEK

La Paz- Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of March 18-25, 2018

 

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT for WEEK of  March 18-25, 2018

 

THE REST OF THE STORY…

Jorge Romero with one of the rare quality fish picked up the whole week and has a nice yellowtail in hand he caught with sardines. He also said there were quite a few bonito, but overall no one was getting too much of anything, Nice shirt!

There were few bright spots for fishing this past week as it was mostly a windy, cloudy rough time.  It’s fairly common during the winter months which is why we don’t have many folks fishing during these months.  We had one or two days at most that were somewhat fishable and even then, it was picky fishing at best.  Some snapper…some pargo…a few cabrilla…and a few yellowtail were about it.  Oh, and alot of bonito for some grateful action.  And that was the whole enchilada for the week.  Fortunately, not many anglers.  However, with spring break and Easter on it’s way, things are going to start getting crowded and we can only hope the weather and winds drop back a notch or two.  Early predictions so far look a bit iffy.  Just being honest.

TAILHUNTER 2018 ROAD TOUR COMES TO AN END!


 

After almost 4 months on the road and a journey that started back in December and took us through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, California, Washington and Oregon…we come to the end of the road.

Jilly wrapped things up a the Fred Hall Show in San Diego.  I was out in the Phoenix, Arizona area with the International Sportsmans Expo.  Both shows were super and good to see so many Tailhunter tribe members and new amigos!

Its been another epic road tour after 23 years and we are so grateful to everyone who took the time to come see us all of the hunting and fishing shows.  It was great and we appreciate all the smiles and hospitality.  God bless you all!

To those of you who signed up to come visit us this year fishing in La Paz, let’s get going!  We’re gonna have a great season and we’re looking forward to seeing you down with us.  We have to unpack the van and the cat and then saddle up and get home to La Paz right after Easter.  So, we’ll see you down there!  Thanks again.

That’s our story!

La Paz-Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of March 11-18, 2018

Mexican Minute Fishing Report for Week of March 11-18, 2018

WINDS CUT US SOME SLACK FINALLY

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of March 11-18, 2018

A mess of great eating for Carl Bock from Puyallup Washington with Captain Pancho and some nice cabrilla and pargo lisa (mullet snapper) taken off the reefs and rocks. Typical winter fishing!

Chunky winter yellowtail for Greg Garrison of San Diego that he took off the north end of Cerralvo Island this week. Thanks for the photo, Gary!

We’d like to see a few more of these as the waters get warmer. Steve Strummell from the bay area of San Francisco poses with his bull dorado.

A hog trophy cabrilla off the north end of Cerralvo Island caught by Gary Garrison of San Diego. Thanks Gary Wagner for the photo.

Second day on the water proved a nice mix of warm and cold water fish for Carl Bock who poses with his cabrilla and dorado

Well, the good news is that after 3 weeks, the winds settled down a bit and allowed us to get to do a bit of fishing.  The bad news is that well…there weren’t many fishermen.  Fairly typical for this time of year.  Further bad news is that the winds are supposed to jump back up this coming week!

Oh well, you just roll with it because that’s how it is during the winter months.  For all the lack of fishermen right now, with Easter coming up April 1, those are the busiest times for travel to Mexico and especially places like Baja and particularly La Paz where we are.  Not necessarily gringos looking to party and kick it up during spring break, but for Holy Week and the dates around Easter, these are the busiest travel times for Mexicans.  Moreso than Christmas or any other time of the year, Mexicans visit and travel outside the country, but also many Mexicans living in the U.S. and other places take the time to visit their friends and relatives back home.  Likewise, domestically many locals travel to visit during this time.  What that means is that many otherwise “empty” beaches are going to be packed with folks camping and picnicking all week.  Many will be fishing too so expect that in about 2-3 weeks, it’s going to be jammed.
Anyway, on the days we could fish, we got out and got an interesting mix.  Coldwater species like snapper, cabrilla, pargo, jack crevasse and yellowtail mixed it up with warm water species like dorado and even a few tuna and lots of bonito. The better action and most consistent bite was in shallow waters over structure for the colder water species using Rapalas, live bait and dead bait.  We found fish close and around Punta Perrico and also at the north and south ends of Cerralvo Island.

TAILHUNTER DOWN THE HOME STRETCH

After almost 3 1/2 months on the road with our 23rd year kicking off, we have just two more shows to do before going home.  We just finished up the ISE Show in Sandy, UT, just south of Salt Lake City and a big “GRACIAS!” to everyone who came by to say hello and to those of you who booked with us, we’re sure looking forward to your visit!

So now…Jilly and I go in different directions again.

Jilly will be headed to the Fred Hall Fishing & Boating Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego CA. Click the link:

Fred Hall Show Del Mar

Jonathan will be driving down to Scottsdale AZ for the International Sportsmans Expo. Click the link:

ISE SHOW SCOTTSDALE AZ

These are our last two shows of the season then we’ll be headed home to La Paz.  We’ve got alot of you reserved this year, but still have some spots open! Get in touch with us ASAP so we make sure we have you covered and you get in on this 2018 season!   If you can make it to Del Mar or Scottsdale, Jilly and I will be in the booth every day and it would be great to see you!

That’s our story!

Have a great week!

THE BIG PICTURE FISHING REPORT

Nice plug yellowfin tuna for Dave Distel of Arizona. Pretty unusual to get a bonus fish like this in the winter!

Dave Distel again with one of the firecracker yellowtail that’s come up close to shore. That’s Captain Victor grinning in the background.

Happy Birthday to Mike Distel of Huntington Beach CA celebrating at our Tailhunter Restaurant with fresh cooked fish that he and his son caught!

WINDS HAMPER FISHING

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Jan. 21-28, 2018

Still not too many folks fishing.  It’s been pretty windy from the north as is pretty typical for this time of year and it’s the January slump when there’s just not that many folks in town either!  It’s actually a nice time to be in La Paz.  It’s sunny and relatively warm for the snow birds with day time temps in the high 70’s compared to where they’re escaping from.  It’s just not necessarily the best time to be in the water.
However, we did get some folks out for a few days for some scratchy mixed bag fishing.  Again ,the winds weren’t exactly our friends.  However… Inshore, there’s snapper, bonito, pargo, seabass and good schools of jack crevalle.  There should be more sierra around, but it hasn’t been consistent.  One day, they swarm and the next day, they can’t be found.
The more quality fishing has been some firecracker 10 pound yellowtail around and also some surprising 20-pound class tuna in Muertos Bay.  Maybe still hanging out from last fall!  One of our captains saw some free swimming wahoo as well, but they moved off.

Jilly and I will be splitting up now…

In two weeks, I will man the booth at the Northwest Sportsmans Show in Portland, Oregon at the Expo Center right next to the Columbia River.  Jill will fly out to the huge Western Hunt Expo at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City!  I’ll post up more details next week.  We’re looking forward to seeing all our amigos!

Jilly and I working the booth at the Washington State Fairgrounds!

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 Jan. 1-7, 2018

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT for WEEK of Jan. 1-7, 2018

Regretfully, no video report this week.  Have picked up a cold up here in the states with this colder weather that I wasn’t ready for and LOST MY VOICE!  I have to save it for the  4 days of showtime this week at the International Sportsmans Expo in Denver at the Convention Center.  Hopefully, it comes back!

The Big PICTURE FISHING REPORT 

It’s not summer warm, but it’s definitely warmer than Chuwelah, Washington where Mark Burlington is from posing here with a nice dorado unusual for this time of year but no complaints. – Mark was staying at Rancho Costa there in Muertos Bay where we’re doing all our fishing this tie of the season.

Normally, we don’t see dorado until about April or May and even that’s a bit early, but either these are holdovers from last year or new fish have moved into area. One of the reasons is in the video clip below. Check our the sardine schools in Bahia Muertos!

Thanks to Gary Wagner for this video clip showing a big reason so many species might be in the bay right now is the presence of schools of sardines.  A great sign for the season! Food!!!!

Schools of big jack crevalle have moved in and are incredible fighters especially on light tackle although not such great eating. Dean Schilling all the way from Wisconsin enjoying some warm Baja weather and some time fishing. He’s staying there in the Bay at Rancho Costa.

Miles Wagner from Colorado Springs CO with his dad, Gary, was throwing top water plugs when this bull mahi jumped the lure. Well, it then proceeded to jump right into the boat too! Miles also caught jacks, tuna and cabrilla this week.

Keegan and Paul Miewski also there in Bahia Muertos rocked some good eating bottom species with a couple of hefty barred pargo mulatto!

The head man himself, jefe of Rancho Costa, Gary Wagner did some later afternoon fishing and caught another early season visitor. Amberjack are the larger cousins to yellowtail and we don’t usually see them until May or so! Great eating and they get over 100 pounds although this size is the best eating!

Here’s something you don’t see every day. Gary Wagner who owns the Giggling Marlin Bar in Cabo and the Rancho Costa Resort in Muertos Bay was walking the beach and a commercial guy was cleaning a strange fish! He said he was about 600 feet out in the bay and caught this…HALIBUT??? First time I’ve seen one in these waters in over 30 years! Just so you know it’s not fake, you can see Rancho Costa in the background. If it looks like a duck…walks like a duck…sounds like a duck…??? HALIBUT?

Maybe salmon will show up next? The Mexican name for halibut is “Lenguado” (tongue fish). This is on the beach at Bahia Muertos and that’s Rancho Costa Resort in the background. No photoshop!!!

GOOD START FOR THE YEAR WITH SURPRISE SPECIES!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of January 1-7, 2018

Happy New Year Everyone!  Hope the year is off to a good start!

Not a bad week of fishing. Nothing spectacular, but a nice variety of species including some genuine surprises.  Not many folks fishing but everyone out did catch some fish.  Still some pesky winds but mostly nice enough to fish with all of our fishing taking place out of Muertos Bay/ Las Arenas Areas where we can fish closer to shore and it’s more protected.

In addition to species we normally catch like barred pargo, yellow snapper and cabrilla, there were also some nice schools of jack crevalle to bend the rods and put on great fights although not such good eating.  Still lots of fun.  In addition, there were also bonito and a smattering of surprising yellowfin tuna and dorado around the bay as well.
Tuna, dorado and amberjack are a real bonus this time of year.  Normally, we don’t see these species until spring when the waters are warmer.  If you check out this week’s photos, you’ll also see a…halibut???  Yup . It sure looks like it!  It’s crazy.
Alot could be due to the fact that there’s still sardine schools in the bay drawing the fish to the food source.  That’s all a great sign and hope the bait stays around.  Last season the return of the bait marked an incredible fishing year!
The coming week looks OK for the weather although strong winds mid-week.
Big shout out to Gary Wagner owner of Rancho Costa Resort in Bahia Muertos where we’re doing all of our fishing right now for all the photos he sent.  If you’re interested in staying at his great place, give us a shout at:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com.

WHALES ON THE WAY!

The migrating gray whales should be showing up any week now to spend the next several months with us after 3500 miles of swimming from the Bering Sea.  They’ll be at Bahia Magdalena until about March and February is a great time to lock in your trip with us to have an incredible experience close up to these great animals.  It’s really popular and many dates are filled or nearing capacity so don’t wait.  Contact us at:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com and we’ll set you up!

SEE YOU IN DENVER!

Getting the booth set up! Show starts Thursday!

This is a huge show with 4 full days and more than 600 vendors from all over the world of hunting, fishing, travel, boating, camping and more for the whole family!

It’s been a long drive but we’re finally here in Colorado setting up the booth and getting ready for the International Sportsmans Expo that kicks off this Thursday and goes to Sunday.  It’s in the Denver Convention Center downtown and is always a fantastic family event with over 600 booths and vendors from all over the world  with travel, gear, hunting, fishing, boating, camping and more!
We’ll be in our usual spot and would love to chat with you about visiting us in La Paz this week! Come say hi.  Grab one of our 24 -page brochures and maybe a Tailhunter t-shirt!  Here’s more info. Click the link.

 

Hope to see you there.!
We’ll be on the road for the next 3 months moving from city to city.  Next up on the agenda is Sacramento at the State Fairgrounds January 18-21.
Have a great week!
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!
