La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of April 26-May 2, 20022



Captain Boli gives our Oregon amigo, Jeff Killian, a hand to pose with one of his yellowtail caught around Espirito Santo Island.


Pretty sight. Another big yellowtail coming aboard! The fish this week were 15-30 pound sluggers!

Utah first-timer with us, Mike Luna caught and released 3 of these roosterfish just off the shoreline on his first day fishing.

Bob Kashka from the San Diego area had just one day to fish and had a pretty banner day with 4 roosters caught-and-released.

She’s on fire! Patty Killian took a number of these hefty yellowtail over 2 days of fishing!

Some dorado starting to show up. Rancho Costa owner Gary Wagner with Mauricia Villanueva and an early season dorado.

It’s like a cheeseboard of fish! A colorful board of fish variety not unusual in the spring with some great eating inshore species . Jim Stahlman and Dave Edwards from Idaho with Captain Jorge holding a polometa (pompano) plus I see snapper, cabrilla and a rainbow runner as well (related to yellowtail). Good start!

Big pompano! It’s that time of year for the jacks to move in. Jason Wagner with dad, Gary, show off a big tasty pompano just outside of Bahia Muertos.

A big boy yellowtail for Mike Luna. There’s another tail sticking out’ve the box at the bottom!

Related to the pompano, roosterfish and yellowtail, this palometa took a bait fished by Bob Kashka.

Beautifuly released of a roosterfish by Mike Luna. He caught three of these his one day fishing.

Rancho Costa owner, Gary Wagner with a springtime rooster soon to be released.

YIkes! Jason got himself a HUGE needlefish!

Way too fun on a trout rod! Baby roosters right in Bahia Muertos all day long with Tracy and Gary Wagner. All fish released.


Even Captain Pancho made the gallery with one of Bob Kashka’s four roosterfish.

Not a bad week at all. Mostly very cooperative warm and sunny weather with highs in the low 90’s and nights in the mid-to-upper 60’s. Things are definitely warming although I went into the water and it was still chilly as are the early mornings! Not a bad idea to bring a windbreaker or light sweatshirt for the mornings until the sun comes up!

As for fishing, we’re moving into warmer species to go along with the warming conditions. We’re seeing a few more dorado which is indicative of the warmer species as well as more roosterfish and jacks such as pompano, jack crevalle and palometas. These are all typical of spring-fish.

However, we still got some really decent cold-water fish, especially the yellowtail from waters north of the city where the waters are cooler than to the south. Some of the yellowtail have been legit 20-35 pound fish and are eating sardines, mackerel, caballitos and jigs.

Inshore fishing for big cabrilla, pargo…like dog-tooth snapper, huachinango, sierra and bonito are still there for some fun action a tad closer to shore.

It’s nice to have calm waters again mostly! It’s a pretty time to be here.

That’s my story!
