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

NOT MUCH HAPPENING EXCEPT COLD and

WINDY

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

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WESTERN HUNT & CONSERVATION EXPO

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

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

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

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

COLD and WINDY WEEK BUT…

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

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

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

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

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

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

Not surprisingly, there are fish to be caught.

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

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

THANK YOU RENO!

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

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

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

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

WESTERN HUNT & CONSERVATION SHOW

Feb. 2-5

SALT PALACE CONVENTION CENTER

SALT LAKE CITY UT

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

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

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

That’s our story!

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

STILL WINDY BUT SOME SURPRISE TUNA POP

UP!

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

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

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

_________________

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

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

TAILHUNTER ROAD TOUR 2023 DOWN THE ROAD…

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

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

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

FEW FISHERMEN OUT DUE TO WINDS BUT

FISH ARE THERE!

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

THE MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THANK YOU DALLAS SAFARI CLUB!

We just finished up the huge Dallas Safari Club Convention with over 1000 other outfitters, guides and charter operations from around the world and thousands of visitors over 4 days!  It was incredible and thank you Dallas for all the hospitality and everyone who came to visit and chat about fishing with us in La Paz!  We got alot of bookings for this season so we’re looking forward to seeing ya’ll later this year.

Me and Jill in the booth

Fun fun visit from Brad and Cheryl Richards. Thanks for all the goodies!

Over 1000 exhibitors, vendors, outfitters, guides and lodges. This is just one of 6 halls packed with lots to see!

Drove all the way just for a short visit with us and always good to see Chris and Valerie Burgin.

Me and my long-time amiga, Angie Robles, the wife of my long time hermano, Ed Robles.

WINDY AND QUIET

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 13-20, 2022

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Keaton Lesnik and his dad had just one day to squeeze in some fishing and happened to pick that ONE day that was nice enough to be out! Got themselves a couple of dorado that they had cooked up at our Tailhunter Restaurant.

___________________________

Not much to report.  About the only ones on the water this week seemed to be commercial guys who are working to catch fish to sell.  Or they were captains feeding their family or catching fish for the holidays or a few locals.  But, the thing with all of them is that they can pick-and-choose which days are better to be on the water.  Or, they know they can get out for just a few hours then come right back in with whatever they can catch if the winds kick up…and they often did.

For most, the winds were just too strong and the waters too rough this past week with just a few little windows of opportunity.  In fact, it was so windy the city of La Paz even cancelled the Christmas Boat Parade.  And that was INSIDE the harbor and bay!

But, there were some interesting catches.  Still seems to strangely be some dorado swimming around despite the weather and the fact that dorado season pretty much ended back in October.  Some nice 20-25 pound fish are still getting hooked, but most are the fun 10-pound-class fish.  As well, there are sierra, white bonito (good eating), jack crevalle, snapper and cabrilla reported this week. But, again, not many reports coming off the water since not many folks fishing and everyone getting ready for the holidays.

All is calm…all is bright on the La Paz Malecon

FROM OUR TAILHUNTER FAMILY TO YOURS…

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.”
Just hoping your holidays and Christmas is filled with blessings and all things good.  You are all a gift to us with all the smiles you bring!
That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Dec. 3-12, 2022

LA PAZ IS UNUSUALLY QUIET

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Dec. 3-9, 2022

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Our very own, Jorge Romero who managers Tailhunter’s Tecolote Transportation Company took a day off to get out on the water and by all counts, he sure had a nice day on the dorado schools. He said not much of anyone else was on the water.

 

Eduardo Gomez, who works for Mattel Toys in Mexico, came out with his wife and caught a limit of dorado. All on live bait.

Since it’s off-season and not much of anyone fishing, Jorge  took another day off to get out on the water and racked this pretty bull dorado just south of Bahia Muertos. Jorge also said he had two wahoo bite him off and briefly had a marlin on the line as well.

________________________

Another typical windy rough week on the water, but that’s to be expected this time of the year. Town is surprisingly quiet as well. Normally, alot more tourists and snowbirds are around, but I’m hearing and seeing around the city and from businesses that it’s amazingly sedate this year. Certainly alot fewer than expected or normal for the holiday season.

Fishermen are few or non-existent as this time of year can be particularly rough and difficult to be on the water. About the only ones fishing are locals who have the luxury of being able to pick-and-choose the calmer days to give fishing a try. Even then, some of them are telling me it can get pretty rough even though the sun is out.

However, there are fish to be caught. Friends have caught good numbers of cold-water fish like sierra and small amberjack and yellowtail along with reef fish like pargo, snapper and cabrilla.

Nevertheless,  there’s an unusual number of dorado still hanging out if you can find the warm patches of water. I’ve even heard of an occasional wahoo or marlin getting hooked. Crazy that they are still around with the waters cooling off and turning greener. These are warm water fish and normally, we would have seen the last of them back in November.

That’s my story!

QUIET TIMES IN TOWN

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muerto Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 24-Dec. 2, 2022

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Dave Wancyzk (middle) and two of his buddies are in town for work, but got away one day and found some nice dorado surprisingly.

More sierra like this one that Monty caught are showing up with more frequency now that the waters are getting colder.

Not much happening on the water.  Mostly folks in town for Thanksgiving holidays.  Had several folks interested in fishing this week, but winds changed their minds.   This coming week doesn’t look much better with most of the days gusting 15-20 mph.

We did get a couple of guys out for one day.  We had to juggle a bit to find a day that was least windy.  He had them fish with our Las Arenas fleet which is more protected and the fishing grounds are closer.  Surprisingly, so late in the season, but they got into some healthy legit dorado.  Warm water fish!  We figured dorado season kinda left us when things got cooler, but I guess there’s a few still hanging around.  Nice surprise.

Beyond that…it’s mostly cold water species.

Some of the locals and commercial guys are out catching snapper, cabrilla and sierra inshore.  Live bait is hard to get when the winds are blowing so mostly using frozen baits and lures.
Town is pretty quiet, but getting fuller for the holidays.  It’s kind of a real nice time to be around!
That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Nov 15-22 2022

LULL BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS

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

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

This past week was pretty typical late fall type conditions.  Lots of sunshine for the snowbirds with temps in the low 80’s to high 70’s and cool evening conditions in the mid-60’s.   Some days really nice and others blustery and windy.  Seems like each week the air temps are getting a tad cooler and the waters are getting just a bit greener as they cool off as well.

Honestly, not many folks in town as this is the lull before the holidays.  I expect that to change this coming week with Thanksgiving coming up.   So, not many tourists in town.  It’s actually a very peaceful time.

There are even fewer folks interested in fishing.  Just a few walk-in’s now and then.  Not in town specifically to fish, but just looking for a day on the water.  Unfortunately, the couple of bookings we had, were cancelled due to windy conditions on those particular days.   Some folks don’t have very flexible schedules so we warn folks if the particular day they want to go out doesn’t look good.   Or looks like it might get blown out.

Captain Armando got out with Miguel Campos and found a nice bit of dorado that wanted to chew on one of the least windy days. Miguel is from Puerto Vallarta.

On the other hand, the few days that conditions were amenable, there are still fish biting, although it’s mostly locals from La Paz in the boats.

There’s a few dorado here and there.  As well, there were a few hookups on wahoo and billfish.  However, most of the catch is turning towards cooler water species with cabrilla, snapper, rainbow runners, sierra and jacks.   Most of this is inshore fishing.  We even found small yellowtail under the tankers anchored in the bay.

Sydney Wagner with big smiles and a big cabrilla that I’m sure went to the dinner table at her dad, Gary Wagner’s place there at Bahia Muertos at Rancho Costa just south of La Paz.

With the rougher waters, it’s getting more difficult to find live bait, but that’s one of the variables with fishing this time of year.  The coming week for Thanksgiving is looking like there will be strong winds from the north pretty much all week.

WINTER WHALE WATCHING NOW BOOKING

The annual migration of the gray whales to Bahia Magdalena will be coming soon and prime time to see them is mid- February to late March.  This is the largest migration of animals in the world and this is a great opportunity to get about as close as you can imagine for a trip of a lifetime.

Get in touch with us and let’s get you set up!  Write me:  tailhunterfishinglapaz@gmail.com

We’ll put the whole trip together including your whalewatching, hotels, transportation and more!

That’s my story…Wishing you a safe, happy and peaceful Thanksgiving!

Blessings always

FISH STILL BITE IN BETWEEN WINDS

(BUT FEW ANGLERS THESE DAYS)

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 7-14, 2022

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST OF THE STORY…

More and more of these rainbow runners showing up in the counts as waters get cooler. These are cousin to the yellowtail and Sidney Wagner caught this one just off Punta Perrico around from her dad’s place at Bahia Muertos.

Finally got a chance to get out with Jilly for just a few hours and we found some nice dorado under a couple of buoys in the channel in front of Cerralvo Island. You can tell the waters are getting colder and greener.

These four guys rocked it! Captain Gaby from Las Cruces was out with Marshall Hydorn, John Clayton and Carter Mack at the north end of Las Cruces dragging some Marauders and hit the hat trick of wahoo…3 nice ones on board. Gaby with the bonito!

JIlly with Captain Joel got the biggest dorado of the day on a live sardine.  She totaled up 4 dorado and 3 cabrilla on the day.

Gary Wagner at his place at Rancho Costa in Bahia Muertos was able to get out one day and took this late season bull dorado!

_____________________

This is that big lull before the holidays. Town is pretty quiet.  The folks that are here are mostly tourists and snowbirds looking for some sunshine.  Not much of anyone here that is specifically here to fish.

If someone does want to fish, they are usually walk-in folks just looking for a day on the water.  Nothing hard-core.   Most of the savvy fisher-folk have left as the 2022 fishing season winds down.

The winter winds have started blowing from the north making a fish trip an exercise in trying to figure out which days the winds won’t blow you off the water.  Two weeks ago, we had three days of the week that were too blustery.  This past week, there were two days.  As I write this, it appears that maybe 5 days will be quite windy.

Some of those days, you can probably get out and we would fish you in some of the more protected in-shore areas.  But, if the wind is really howling, there’s a good chance the port captain will shut down all boat traffic departing or arriving.

There are still some dorado around.  Most of the are the fun smaller 5-12 pounders with some occasional big toad bulls still lurking.  One thing nice is that you could just go to the big tankers anchored in La Paz Bay and find some schools without having to go out too far.

There’s some wahoo at the north end of Cerralvo Island, but for the most part, the weather is cooling and so are the waters with blue waters starting to turn green and cloudy.   Consequently, more cooler-water species are moving in.

This includes, sierra, rainbow runners, pargo, cabrilla, jacks and even a few amberjack and yellowtail.  These will become more predominant as the waters continue to cool off.

Mostly, live bait (sardines) and cut bait (stripped bonito) have been the most effective attractants, but as waters get rougher, it’s harder to find the sardines.  Also, the bait guys will be more reluctant to go find bait to sell if there aren’t many folks fishing.

That’s my story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Oct. 30-Nov. 6, 2022

WINDS SHUT DOWN MANY DAYS- Just the

start!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Bay for Week of Oct. 30-Nov. 6, 2022

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST OF THE STORY…

Not the best time to be out on the water in a panga! (turn up the sound)

 

Brent Ritchie has a big smile for his early morning dorado hook-up.

Our own, Brian Reid from Hewitt, Texas hit a school or dorado right out in front of the city where the big tankers sit at anchor and had a limit in about 45 minutes.

Sal Pamiza, first-timer with us from S. Carolina is our good family amigo and gets a hand from Captain Pancho with one of his first-ever fish!

Tom Brewer was able to squeeze in 3 days of fishing over a week by picking out days when the winds were down and scored good fishing for several species during his days on the water.

 

I wish I could say there’s alot going on and alot to tell you about, but the straight-up honest report is that as I’m writing this report, the port has been closed now for two days shutting down all boat traffic because of the fierce winds.  It will probably be shut down tomorrow as well for the better part of the day.

These are the northern winds that start up about this time of year and will blow erratically now through April or May.  That’s why we say that November to April is our off-season and there’s honestly not many folks on the water except windsurfers and kite-boarders who love these crazy northern winds.

In the past 2 weeks, in fact, we’ve had 2-3 days each week where the winds blew us off the water or we had to cancel the few fishing trips we still had booked.   Most of our regulars understand that it’s pretty much the end of the season so we don’t have that many anglers anyway.

You can probably tell by the fact that I don’t have many fish photos to post!

Fortunately for the few we’ve had and could get out, we are still finding some dorado around with most fish in the 10-pound range but also many more cooler-water species as the ocean temperatures start to drop off.  That includes sierra, jacks, pompano, trevally, rainbow runners and even a few yellowtail.  But, I think we are about the end of the blue water/ warm water species for the season.

Thankfully, for the dorado, even when it’s been blustery outside and tough to go too far from shore, dorado have been close.  In La Paz Bay, in fact, there’s been a nice jag of schoolie-sized dorado right under the big tankers anchored in the bay.    I was able to get out one day this week and we caught a limit in about 45 minutes which was great as the winds came up later.

With the winds, it’s also getting more difficult to get live bait with waves crashing the shallow areas where the bait guys usually net the sardines.
