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!

CONDITIONS AND FISHING COOLING OFF

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 13-20, 2019

 

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Alot of meat! Marlene Kikuchi from Los Angeles had a live mackerel pinned to her line not far from Punta Arenas with Captain Pancho  when she hooked this massive wahoo not far from the shoreline.  The big fish was weighed on a scale and measured 56-pounds!

It’s been over 10 years since Mark Rubin came to visit us so it was good to see him. He was out fishing with Captain Arcangel and got this colorful dorado up for a great photo!

On her first day out and first-time in La Paz, Kathy Parker was with Captain Luis and deckie Miguel  in the channel between the city and Espirito Santo Island in an area where big 50-150 pound tuna had been sighted. On her first bait in the water, this big yellowfin inhaled her little sardine and the fight was on! With her sister, Sherry (see photo below), trading the rod-back-and-forth for 4 long hours, the ladies finally got this big boy to the boat!

Holly Kunzler’s big dorado of the week was caught while fishing with our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet. Holly’s first trip to Baja and she was with us for the better part of the week visiting from Utah.

Our long-time amigos with their favorite Captain Jorge, Marianne and Jeff Sakuda enjoying Jeff’s retirement vacation after 30 years as a pilot for United, they kicked off things with a nice rack of bull dorado.

Double tag-team! Sherry Cady was on her 2nd visit to us this year and this time brought her sister, Kathy Parker (see photo above) when they hung this big yellowfin tuna with deckhand Miguel and Captain Luis and battled the fat fish for 4 hours!

 

Montana Dewey and Leslie Spafford guide trips in Arizona and came to visit this week and go into some dorado and cabrilla their first day at Las Arenas.

First-timer and happy fisherman, George Misner, started his trip with a nice bull dorado just south of Bahia Muertos.

Popular Captain Chito hung two of those big tuna that were boiling north of La Paz for a few days. Unfortunately, photos of the clients didn’t come out!

Hi Craig! Always good to have Craig Corda back with us . He’s been our amigo for over 20 years and never has a bad day.

Al Chaves lives outside of Phoenix and was out with Captain Jorge when he got this dorado. He had a big tuna on briefly.

Jarat Bagwell from Arizona got the jackpot with his buddies when he caught the most fish for the day including dorado, cabrilla and snapper.

Texas in the house! Cody Timberlake is a professional cowboy and former bullrider and lives in Banderas TX. First trip with us and a dorado with Captain Alfredo.

Monte Aldridge shows off a bull dorado he picked up fishing off Espirito Santo Island. He’s from Richfield UT and always good to have him visit.

Eric Gunnells and Steve Bayer picked up these dorado on their one day out’ve Bahia Muertos.

Barbara Burnett and her husband Jerry have their own great salmon operation in Juneau AK, but came to visit us and started off with a day of dorado.

These are great eating triggerfish! Best ceviche and fish tacos! Captain Jorge with or friends, Jeff and Marianne Sakuda.

Captain Fili is hidden behind a dorado, but no hiding Zach Arnold and Trent Baysinger and a couple of nice mahi.

Good to see Captain Arcangel smiling. Nice dorado in the box again for Mark.

 

Things have fallen off rapidly with cooler temperature, stronger winds and currents and rougher water the last week-and-a-half.  Fishing has also dropped off dramatically.  The warm water season ended sooner than expected and I think things will continue to change as warm water species like the dorado, tuna, wahoo, and billfish move out and are replaced by more inshore cooler water species.

 

Once again this week, captains and clients worked hard to find picky fish.  Bait was harder to come by in the rougher waters and there were times with there were some uncharacteristically big swells, chop and gusty winds making it more difficult to fish.  The winds will only get stronger as normally calm La Paz Bay even got some big wind-generated rollers that smashed waves onto the waterfront areas.

 

There were still some dorado around although the schools are diminishing.   Most days boats scratched out a catch of 1-5 dorado per day with most about 10 pounds or so.  Smaller ones were released.  Lots of bonito, fortunately usually kept rods bent.

 

More inshore fish like triggerfish, snapper, pargo and cabrilla as well as sierra and jack crevalle and pompano increased in the counts as waters cooled and it became more incumbent to fish closer to the beaches and rocks.

 

There are, however, some great catches still waiting!

 

We had a few nice wahoo this week including a whopper 56-pounder by Marlene Kikuchi from Los Angeles.  As well, there’s still the occasional 30-50 pound roosterfish.

 

The biggest surprise was the appearance of some pig yellowfin tuna that were in the 50-150 pound class between Punta Tecolote and Espirito Santo Island in the channel.  These fish were toads that tore into anglers for 1-4 hour battles, when they would bite.  Sometimes, they were just a tease boiling around the pangas, but not interested in eating a hooked bait.  But, when they did bite, they were beasts!  Normally, we don’t see tuna around La Paz as we catch them mainly around Las Arenas so this was a nice surprise!

 

BOOKING FOR 2020 STARTING TO FILL

Ice chests full of fish headed to the airport!

Our reservations are coming in faster than normal and many dates in 2020 are getting filled.  Calls and e-mails are coming in daily. Some dates are already sold out.  In 2019 we were filled by March.

We don’t want to miss you.  If you have a favorite captain, hotel or date in mind, don’t wait.  Especially, don’t wait until we do our fishing and hunting show tour in the winter.  We want to be sure we have you down and covered so we can have you visit next year!

Check your calendar!

 

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!

LA PAZ – LAS ARENAS/ MUERTOS BAY/ SUENOS BAY FISHING REPORT from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Sept. 8-15, 2019

DORADO STILL CHEW BUT TUNA TEASE FINALLY!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Sept. 8-15, 2019

SHORT ATTENTION SPAN WEEK-AT-A-GLANCE

Weather – hot and humid.  Very tropical.  Afternoon and occasional thunderstorms and flash flooding but otherwise sunny and in the mid to high 90’s.  Evenings low 80’s with a breeze.

Water – blue bathwater overall, but still come cold patches.  Might start getting colder soon.  Feels a bit like fall already.  A short summer.

Fishing (Scale of 1-10) – Maybe a high 6.  Still not where we should be this time of year although there’s solid dorado fishing mostly.  This is what it should be in July.

Fish Caught – 90% dorado mainly because that’s what 90% are fishing for!  But we’ve had some jags of tuna.  We’ve lost marlin and wahoo.  Roosterfish are still around but not many folks fishing for them.  Dorado are easy and fun.  Seeing more of those big dog-tooth, snapper, cabrilla, sierra, pargo, bonito, jack crevalle, pompano, needlefish.

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

Just a great frameable shot with awesome colors! Lee Hazelquist with a big grin!

Another joyous ecstasy photo! Steve Avery with us for the first time put this beast dog-tooth snapper in the boat and he has every reason to be happy about this trophy!

Oh yea! About time! Joe Duffy who runs a charter operation up in the Bay Area with his dad, Noel (who came all the way from Ireland) and a nice yellowfin tuna just off Punta Perrico!

My funny buddy, Brian Buchanan, had a good week of dorado fishing with us. Brian is from the Salt Lake City area.

These two great guys had a fun week of fishing. First timers with Tailhunter Paul Marshall and Steve Avery.

For almost 20 years, our buddy retired firefighter Mac Treasure from Reno NV brings a great bunch of guys to visit us. This week, Mac stuck himself this big fat dog-tooth fishing with Captain Pancho.

They got Captain Arcangel to smile! Rob Markarian and Tom Worrel with a load of fish to start their trip.

Everyone’s favorite guy and hard working amigo, Jorge Romero, finally took a day off and got out to fish! Nice dorado Jorge!

The right kind! It’s about time! Captain Jorge gives a thumbs up for Jaimy Stolberg’s hefty tuna she battled just outside of Muertos Bay!

Great shot! Captain Armando helps out Geoff Merker from San Diego with a nice dorado off Punta Perico. Check the flat waters!

Dale and Dean Dzwonierek with Captain Jorge and a bunch of dorado on the fish cleaning table.

Nyle Miyamoto from Washington with a colorful bull.

First rooster for Jon Gallant from San Diego just off Punta Perico. Fish was released. Roosters are still around but with so much attention on dorado no one is really fishing for them.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a nicer dorado photo than this one with John Birtwistle from Woodland CA. Great shot and good fish, JB!

Two of our nicest friends for many years from Oregon, Dorothy and Steve Murata started their vacation with some dorado and a couple of yellowfin tuna fishing with Captain Gerardo.

Trudy Grove with another dorado! She had a super week with the mahi and has been visiting us from Salt Lake City for many many seasons. Always good to have her down to see us!

Joaquin Perea from Woodland CA never has a bad day and always a pleasure to have him down. Another nice dorado for the cooler!

Denver in the house! Bill Johnson put a double pair on the cleaning table his first day.

A big fish dinner in their future! Fishing with Captain Jorge (in the background) Clint and Jaimy Stolberg pose with a good day’s production of dorado and tuna!

I told Tim Larson if he took a good photo, I would finally get him in the fishing report! Nicely done, Tim! You’re on!!!  It’s a great shot.  We told him no hat.  No sunglasses.  Good lighting.  No blood!

You can always tell a flyfishing guy. They always put their rods in their mouths! They need one extra hand! Well-done, Joaquin! He got several fish on his flyrod.

Stephen Chalbourg and his amigo, Bo, came all the way from Minnesota to fish and got these two lengthy females.

Another of our great Washington amigos, Jim Lundeen shows off one of his mahi.

Funniest guy of the week…Billy Baker! You’re on the fishing report, Billy! Good to have you here and thanks for all the laughs!

Two of our retired firefighters, Bernie Smith and Brian Rubino with Captain Adolfo.

Just another good day for Captain Gerardo as he checks out the dorado catch of Les Lovell and Terry Daniels.

Visting us for the 2nd year-in-a-row. Good to have you down, Fish Brother! Ryan Netherton who also got in a day of SCUBA diving as well! Ryan is from San Diego.

Joaquin Perea and Paul Marshall having some fun on the beach after another solid day on the water.

That’s a legit fish! John Birtwistle and a shiny dorado. Cerralvo Island in the background.

Paul and Steve with more dorado fillets coming up!

Despite the full-moon, another pretty solid week of dorado fishing overall with fish scattered over a wide-range of ocean both inshore and offshore.  It’s pretty hard NOT to catch a dorado right now if you have a bait, lure or jig in the water.  It’s probably 90% of the catch!

 

There’s lots of other species around, but when the fun-fighting, easily caught and tasty dorado around, folks don’t usually spend much time chasing the other species!  This is especially true for a lot of our first-timers or less-experienced anglers.

 

Not every boat does great every single day.  There’s always the 1 or 2 boats that only get a few dorado or really have to work at it on a given day, and I hate it when maybe those folks are only fishing  single day.  But, if you’re fishing multiple days, it’s difficult to keep the dorado off your hook and you’ll go home with some great meat for the dinner plate and freezer.

 

But, there are other species around.

 

We had some marlin hook-ups and breakoffs.

 

We had at least 1 or 2 wahoo bites that got unbuttoned per day.

 

If you wanted a roosterfish, yes ,the 30-60 pounders are still around.

 

Inshore, there’s cabrilla, pargo and those big-dog-tooth snapper are willing to bite if you are into putting in the time and are up to the frustration of nearly getting yanked out’ve your socks only to have the fish bust you off in the shallow rocks.

 

More excitingly, late in the week, we had some jags of 20-40 pound yellowfin tuna pop up.  These fish have been absent for about 2 months and this is the time we should be seeing them, but have been conspicuously absent the latter part of this week.  I don’t wanna jinx it and say the tuna season has started, but hopefully, this is the start of some better tuna fishing.

SHOUT OUT THANK YOU

Our community outreach program is still rolling full turbo.  Just sent a huge load of goods out to Los Planes to the kids and the community out there!  We also collected enough money this last week to sponsor two more kids for a whole year of school (books, food, uniforms, transportation…and they in turn have to keep up their grades and mentor another student).

 

No sooner did that load go out, then even more started coming in!  I was not able to get everyone’s photos, but some are below.  But a special shout-out to Tim Schlander who’s guys brought in numerous ice chests packed full of clothes, school clothes, hygiene items and more!!  Thanks for the big hearts to them and all of you who keep bringing both adult and childrens items and have helped us deliver several TONS of needed items over the last few years!

 

Justin and Noah Lauby with lot of great adult clothes! (Everyone targets the kids so great to get some adult stuff!)

From Bakersfield, nice smiles and great school supplies from Don and Gwen Parnell.

Our Utah Tailhunter Tribe…Brian Buchanan, Trudy Grove, Kathy and John Terbu with a whole table full of great stuff!

 

That’s our story!

LA PAZ – LAS ARENAS/ MUERTOS BAY/ SUENOS BAY FISHING REPORT FROM TAILHUNTER SPORTFISHING FOR WEEK OF AUG 4-11, 2019

THE WORLD IS FLAT – YELLOWTAIL IN AUGUST

with TUNA and DORADO?

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of July 4-11, 2019

 

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Retired firefighter Craig Braswell strains to hold up a hefty roosterfish estimated at 60 pounds that hit Craig’s little sardine right close to the rocks as they were fishing for shallow water pargo and cabrilla.  The fish battled and pulled the panga around on light tackle for almost an hour which is why Craig says, “I could barely lift the fish!”  The fish was released.  Craig is from Chico C and our buddy is a long-time Tailhunter friend!

Denni Chin from Salt Lake City UT has a laugh with Captain Victor from the Tailhunter Fleet in La Paz on the beach at Bahia Muertos.  It was Denni’s first La Paz trip and he took a number of fish off his bucket list including a striped marlin; several big roosterfish (released) as well as dorado and this yellowtail and tuna!

A crazy mix of fish for Trevor Akiyoshi and Ryan Vorisek hold up some of their catch that included a strange mix of fish for August.  The catch included  dorado (summer fish) , pompano (spring fish) and pargo liso (mullet snapper…a winter fish).  Dad Mike Akiyoshi with the photobomb.  They are from Upland CA.  They were fishing with the Tailhunter Fleet in La Paz.

Amazing fish! Our biggest dorado of the season. It’s huge. Adam Jones is about 6′ tall and the head of the fish is turned away from the camera. He and cousin, Steve Braithwaite (photo below) tag-teamed the big fish over 40 minutes!

Another shot of the big bull dorado. Steve Braithwaite posing for this shot! Both guys are pretty tall and the photo doesn’t do justice to the size and girth of the fish.

Our long-time amigo, Kip Slaugh, hoisted this big roosterfish on a bit of a choppy day outside of Bahia de los Muertos. The fish was released.

Yup!!! Yellowtail in August? Check the photo! Phil and dad, Larry Braithwaite from Salt Lake City UT with captain Pancho on the beach at Bahia Muertos. Dorado are warm water fish. Yellowtail are cold water fish!

Colorado in the house! Louie Sanchez rocked this big roosterfish while fishing near Las Arenas on live bait and released it. It’s his personal best!

Just an incredible shot of a dorado jumping at sunrise! Captured by pro photographer amiga, Lynn Crooks from Reno NV who was fishing with her husband, Bernie.

Hard not to love our buddy, Denny Gallegos, who mugs for this shot. He’s always doing stuff like this over the years! With his buddy, Grant Parr, holding a big pargo perro.

The gent behind the mask with Captain Monch and the trophy roosterfish is Bernie Crooks who got several nice roosterfish and released them all. Our amigo, Bernie, is from Reno, Nevada.

All of a sudden, these big dog-tooth also started chewing this week! With Cerralvo Island in the background, Kip Slaugh, lifts the thick fish on the gaff for the money shot! Great eating!

Just a wonderful shot by this young lady! Oh the joy! Chloe Crum from San Antonio, Texas makes the shot with this dorado and captain Alfredo helping from off-camera!

Love the kid shots! We’ve known Sierra Sanchez since she was smaller than this dorado and it’s fun watching her grow up every year and enjoy the fishing with her family and Captain Rogelio. Dorado…right off the rocks in shallow water!

Victor Gil Delmonte comes to visit us every year and told me this fish “really hurt me!” You can see it on his face and Captain Archangel had to give Vic a hand! He gamely battled the fish then released the pretty fish too!

Yes, you CAN have too much fun! Pete Natividad from Los Angeles with Captain Alfredo, was on his first trip to see us and had only one day to fish, but caught about 6 different species including this amberjack.

Dr. Marc Crum came to visit us for the first time from Texas and was able to put this nice roosterfish aboard for the photoshot before letting it go to fight another day.

 

Talk about variety! Lynn Crooks has about 6 different species on the transom after a good day on the water fishing north of La Paz.

Just incredible colors in this photo to go along with Gaby Donnell’s pretty smile. Gaby is from Oregon and took the colorful bull dorado just outside of Las Arenas.

Our buddy, Roger “Fluffy” McCracken battled this feisty jack crevalle south of Espirito Santo Island. These are tough fighters!

Doing it like a boss! Gavin Carroll has himself a dorado in the boat with Captain Armando!

Dorado started biting better late in the week. Adam Jones and Steve Braithwaite.

Not normally something we recommend or target, but we DO occasionally hook sharks. It usually never lasts long before the shark busts the line nor do we recommend putting any shark in the boat. But, Jeff Slater is one of our long-time anglers and very very experienced and fought this hammerhead estimated at 300 pounds. Actually very good eating and he donated much of the meat as well.

 

This is frameable! Hard to get a better photo or smile than Cortez Sanchez with his bull dorado on the beach at Muertos.

Good way to greet a sunrise! Captain Rogelio and our first-timer Nick Arandia started the morning with a fine catch-and-release roosterfish near La Paz.

One of our all-time favorite families (Team Penguino). Louie, Sierra and Cortez Sanchez with some of their La Paz catch. Clouds building in the background. They were able to get two nice days of fishing in with us this year!

Not sure what’s more colorful. Louie Mogabgab’s sunglasses or the dorado! Both are admittedly almost a match! Captain Victor adds to the photo too!

When it’s your first time fishing and your first fish, it’s a great moment. Imelda Natividad got herself a fat triggerfish for ceviche with Captain Alfredo.

____________________________

 

There is no doubt that this has been an incredibly crazy year for weather as well as fishing! It seemed that winter took forever to leave and summer to take hold and given the types of fish we’re catching, summer is still reluctant even though we’re now half into August.

 

The week started somewhat sluggish and got better as the week progressed.  Lots of cloudy days (similar to San Diego grey skies of summer) kept things cooler which was appreciated by many of the anglers.  We even had about a 30 minute downpour one afternoon like a mini tropical hurricane that caused a lot of flooding and winds then quickly blew out.

Here it comes! Good thing everyone is off the water already.

 

Early in the week, we had the usual smattering of dorado mostly in the 10-20 pound class.  But we continued to show up with unusual cold-water fish like pargo liso (mullet snapper), giant dog-tooth snapper, cabrilla, pompano, amberjack, jack crevalle and even sierra.

Yup! Amberjack in August. Louie Mogabgab.

Wish we could see his photo, but Captain Moncho give Bernie Crooks (I think that’s Bernie in there!) a hand with his jack crevalle which was released right there off the beach.

 

But, then the kicker showed up late in the week.  Not only did 20-100 pound tuna show up (most fish lost after long battles on light tackle) but we started getting YELLOWTAIL!

 

None of us can ever remember yellowtail so late in the season.  In my 25 years here we have never seen yellowtail in August. Mostly by May, these cold-water fish are long gone!

Never ever ever ever seen yellowtail caught in August. It’s like getting a snowstorm in the summer. It just doesn’t happen!

I’ve given up telling folks what they’re gonna catch these days! Oh, and the fish got bigger as the week went on.

That’s my story…

LA PAZ – LAS ARENAS/ MUERTOS BAY/ SUENOS BAY FISHING REPORT FROM TAILHUNTER SPORTFISHING FOR WEEK OF JULY 14-21, 2019

DORADO PARGO KICK IT UP A NOTCH

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of July 14-21, 2019

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Not a bad start! Leif Dover (right) celebrating his bachelor party with Brian O’Neil kicked off their trip with a load of dorado and snapper out’ve Las Arenas. Both guys are long-time Tailhunter amigos and are from Atlanta GA.

Crazy to be catching these big mullet snapper (pargo liso) so late in the year, but Diana Hernandez and Mark Buchanan from San Diego pulled several of these tough fish out’ve the rocks.

They were done fishing early with limits of dorado. Kennedy Dixon poses with fish on the beach at Bahia Muertos.

 

Don has big smiles and a big rooster ready to photo and release just off the rocks at Punta Perrico.

Captain Rogelio with a great photo and tasty pargo mulato with Grayson Richmond from Colorado near the cliffs off Espirito Santo Island.

 

 

Jim Looney has a nice bull dorado just outside of Bahia Muertos.

Her biggest rooster after so many trips with us, Angela Farrell from Oceanside CA, with her favorite captain Moncho. Estimated size was 60 pounds and Angela released the fish.

Another good day with meat for the ice chest, Brian O’Neil and Leif Dover showing dorado, snapper, pargo liso and cabrilla. Quite a variety! They said they lost some huge pargo in the rocks and just couldn’t get the big fish headed up.

Pargo liso for Diana. Good eating members of the snapper family, they usually spawn and school up in the spring. Unusual for us to be catching them in the summer.

Beautiful beach shot of Don and his jack crevalle off Punta Arenas. The fish was released and are members of the jack family.  Same as the roosterfish without the mohawk fin.

Family day, Captain Pancho’s family out for the day (Carlos y Marisol), nailed the dorado and a big fat pargo. You better catch fish when it’s your own family!

Our Colorado, buddy Bill Richmond, with some inshore light tackle pargo in flat seas.

Big jack crevalle for Brian. Fish was released.

It’s finally feeling more like summer-time with both the weather (hot); the waters (warmer and bluer) and the fishing (almost there!).  We still had some flurries of crazy winds, but overall, it’s seemingly more typical overall.  It’s just that it seems like this fishing season, it’s taking it’s sweet time getting up to speed.

Dorado AND pargo?  One is decidedly a warm water fish.  The latter is a cold water fish! And catching them the same day?  Sometimes in the same spot?  Crazy!

Surely, the dorado are the best indication since these are the hallmark of our warmer months.  We’ve had them on-and-off with out La Paz fishing fleets, but strangely, it’s not been quite so good with our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet until about a week or so ago when the dorado seemed to have finally got into the game.

 

This past week, some boats were limiting on the dorado by mid-morning with most fish in the 10-25 pound class.  Catches were rounded out with bonito, skipjack, jack crevalle, and rockfish like cabrilla and snapper.  Or, in a few cases, the folks just figured they had a good day and came back to shore early to have lunch and lay by the pool or beach!  Either way, a good day.

 

However, just a note that there must still be some cold water around and lingering wisps of springtime insofar as we’re still hanging some big dog-tooth and mullet snapper that normally, we stop seeing about April and are usually spawning in schools during the springtime.  It’s rare to have them this deep into the summer.  But, anglers were still catching them or at least hooking these powerful fish and getting broken off in the rocks.

 

No wahoo to speak of this week.  We had a few tuna hooked up, but lost and billfish as well.  Most folks were concentrating on the easier dorado bite.  Only a few roosterfish as well, but again, that’s probably a function of the fact that the dorado are taking over everyone’s focus.

 

It’s feeling really tropical lately.  Humidity is way up and some sporadic brief rainshowers, especially, in the afternoons are not uncommon . Time to get the trashbag and cut out some holes for your arms and head!

TAILHUNTER COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Because we’ve been filled with so many fishing photos, I’ve been slacking on something even more important in the big scheme of things.  Every year our Tailhunter Tribe member bring hundreds and hundreds of pound of donations to us for distribution in the community.

It’s a program that my wife, Jilly, started and it’s been incredibly successful because of our amigos like you.  The need is real and so are the smiles.  These are just some of the big-hearted folks who have brought stuff to us (I’m sorry I don’t have everyone’s photos), but the gratitude is huge.

 

Justin and dad, Adam, Larson.

The Toeniskoetter Family

Brian brings down several full suitcases every year stuff with clothes and other needed items.

Ken Chaplin and Scott Miller down from Washington

Brent Gumn and wife Vanessa

Thank you all!

That’s our story.  Have a great week!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of June 23-30, 2019

ROOSTER-FEST WEEK!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of June 23-30, 2019

 

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO FISHING REPORT

 

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY….

 

Dave Lester from Temecula CA with another beast roosterfish for the camera before putting it back in the water.  Dave and his 3 buddies estimate they hooked and released 31 roosterfish over 4 days. 

Daniel Bovee 2 EDIT RESIZE TAGS dorado 6-19

What beast is this? DJ Bovee from San Diego fishes with us several times a year and hooked this massive bull dorado, the likes of which we have not seen in years!

Enzo Moreno is just 11-years-old from San Antonio, Texas.  He caught and fought a marlin all by himself; he caught numerous other species including dorado and put this hefty yellowtail in the box as well. 

Zach Smith had an eventful 2 days of fishing with us.  His first day he hooked this pretty striped marlin.  The fish could not be released and Zach donated all the meat to the local folks who welcomed the fresh fish 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Our fun amigos for many years who always do well, Tim and Angela Farrell from Oceanside, CA with their favorite Captain Moncho and a handful of tough-fighting pargo liso and yellow snapper!

Pretty as could be.  Joe has another pretty roosterfish to the boat to photo and release.  The roosters were sure thick this week. 

This might be my favorite photo of the week.  Nina Moreno and Captain Rogelio mug for the camera with Espirito Santo island right behind them just a stone’s throw away. 

Rooster Burgess TAGS 6-19 rooster

Big fish…big mouth! The kind that can inhale a 12-inch-long bait! Ron Burgess gets a hand from Captain Moncho. Fish was released.

zach smith pompano TAGS 6-19

Yes, pompano are still biting and yes, they are the largest I have ever seen down here in our waters in 25 years. Zach Smith has this one under control and released it.

GAry Jason rooster TAGS 6-19

Good amigo and owner of Rancho Costa Resort in Bahia Suenos, Gary Wagner with his son, Jason took this long roosterfish just outside of the bay. The fish was released.

Don's Fish of mystery TAGS 6-19

The parade of weird and unusual fish continues. We’ve had milkfish…blue treval;y and now an island trevally. Another member of the diverse jack family. In 25 years, I’ve never seen one down here and neither had any of our captains.

I want to say it was really a great week of fishing.  But, I can’t.  So many times, I thought we were right on the verge of it, but then it got crazy again.  For sure, we had some spectacular fishing and maybe one of the best if not the best fishing of the season.

 

However, the fishing is still all mixed up and unpredictable.  Many folks caught the fish of a lifetime; or their largest; or their first or the most they have ever caught and that was great.

Gabe lao rooster TAGS beach 6-19

Gabe Lao, Elk Grove CA Roosterfish off the beach. Released.

 

But, there was just no getting a handle on what was biting . One day the bite was in one spot and the next, it was shut down. Clear blue water one day become green dirty water with current the next day.  One panga rips up the fish and the boat next to it can’t get a bite.  It was that kind of week.

 

I’m not sure where to start so let me break it out with our two different fleets.  The fact that we have two fleets fishing two different areas often made the difference between having a good day or a so-so day!

 

For our La Paz Tailhunter Fleet

 

The week started well.  This is where we’ve been getting yellowtail, amberjack, pargo and cabrilla and snapper. Plus lots of great eating white bonito.  Really weird because these are all coldwater fish, except for the bonito!  And it’s already 100 degrees and the end of June and beginning of July.  For example yellowtail are a fish we usually don’t see much of after April or so!

However ,yellowtail between 15-25 pounds have been biting now for almost 3 weeks.  By far our La Paz fishing north of town has been the most solid fishing most of the month.

If you wanted to just have a solid day of fun and action, this is where I had you fish.  I could really depend on it doing well and everyone having fun.

dorado sy TAGS 6-19

Espirito Santo Island. Sy’s first dorado experience was a good one.

Rick dorado 6-19 TAGS

No, that’s not Richard Branson, but Rick Kasper has been on many TV shows and had his own hunting show for many years. He’s an old hand at fishing with us down here.

The weird thing, however, is that almost in the same spots where we were hooking the cold water fish, we were also hooking dorado which are warm water fish!  The dorado ran 10-25 pounds and these are the kinds of fish we should be hooking this time of year.  But with the presence of both fish, this means there’s a thermocline in the water column with warm waters about 81 degrees at the surface, but below that is a very chilly thermocline holding colder waters.  This was confirmed by our scuba divers who ran into the colder water about 20-40 feet down.

 

Very unusual!  But, like I said, everyone catching fish.

 

Until about mid-week.  The fishing really died down.  My captains told me cold green water with lots of current and strong winds kicked the bite to the curb.  However, as the week went on…the bite came back little by little as temperatures rose again (we set a record 107 degrees Saturday) and waters calmed with dorado and other species once again getting active.

Nina 2 dorado 6-19 TAGS

Nina hooks another one!

 

For our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet…

 

The week was mostly slow.  But let me clarify.

zach smith capt fili jack crevalle TAGS 6-19

Jack crevalle “Toro” Captain Fili and Zach Smith

There were fish biting!  No doubt.  There were lots of those cool white bonito.  And pargo, jack crevalle, cabrilla and amberjack and  (Needlefish…yuk).

pargo Dave Lester TAGS 6-19

Dave and a pretty and big yellow snapper.

But, the big pargo liso were schooling!  These huge mullet snapper are 10-30 pounds and are really difficult fish in the shallow waters, but these fish are normally schooling in these big groups in the colder waters of March and April.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Among the toughest and most difficult fish in our waters, pargo liso frustrate many an angler and frustrate strong men. However, Tim and Angela Farrell with Captain Moncho yanked these bad boys out’ve the rocks.

 

All of a sudden, here they are.  The thing with them is that they are tough tough tough to catch.  I have often told folks that if you get 10 hookups and get 2 or 3 to the boat, it’s about par.

 

So, folks were coming back saying what a tough day they had.  Then, I’d find out they really hooked 6, 8, 10 pargo but busted them all off!  That’s GOOD fishing…but bad CATCHING!

Don pargo TAGS 6-19

Pargo liso for Joe! Great eating.

Similarly, we had some tuna biting…and these were all 100+ pound beasts!  1 and 2 hour battles ended up with broken lines.  In one case, our guys had the fish right next to the boat ready to stick the gaff after an epic battle and suddenly a huge shark rolls up and in two bites completely wipes out the fish!

Marlin zach smith TAGS 6-19

Striped marlin waiting to be carted off to local homes.

Oh…and marlin and sailfish caught too finally although a couple of nice fish broke off.  Best billfish bite of the season!

 

But the best part of the week…(drumroll)…ROOSTERFEST!!!

 

Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay is known as the “Roosterfish Capital of the World.”  World record roosterfish up to 150 pounds have been caught on this beach area.

 

Well, this week, I’ve never seen the roosters go off like they did.  I estimate almost 100 roosters were hooked and released between 5 and 70 pounders!

Armando rooster RS TAGS dave lester 6-19

Captain Armando and Dave Lester in the Baja sunrise with an early big roosterfish released.

 

On a single day alone, our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet had 8 pangas on the water and got 35 roosterfish!  That’s unheard of!  One of our boats caught and released at least 10 fish.  This doesn’t even include the fish that were lost or broke off!

ADAM TAWOROSKI TWO TAGS 6-19 rooster

From Denver, Adam Tarowoski got his first roosterfish this week. Fish was released.

Then, at the end of the week, another surprise.  We have not had many dorado caught this year around the Las Arenas area.  Most of the fish have been around La Paz.  Other than an occasional dink fish, not much to speak of.

JEN WILSON TAGS COLORADO SPRINGS DORADO 6-19

Wow!! That’s huge bull dorado! Whoa…Jen Wilson from Colorado Springs CO with one of the largest dorado of the season.

Well, all of a sudden we have bit 20-45 pound bull dorado in the water!  Where’d they come from?  We haven’t seen dorado of that size in 3 years.

 

It’s a strange strange season!  Oh…and we broke heat records this week too.  107 degrees over the weekend.

That’s my story!
