La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 10-17, 2020

WINDS CALM – BIGGER DORADO and WAHOO SHOW

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 10-17, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Our Captain Victor looks on while Gerry and Jeri Damge from Colorado put another dorado in the boat.

Sherri Foster from California had never been fishing in Saltwater and came down with friend, Larry Roemer from Colorado. Her very first ocean-fish was a wahoo and then she followed it up with a nice day of dorado fishing for the couple who were with Captain Jorge.

Our buddy Roger Thompson with his amigo, Joel Zarmati from Paso Robles CA got double-hookups near Cerralvo Island and landed a box of nice wahoo.

More fillet for the ice chest. Larry and Sherri on their 2nd day out with Captain Jorge put them on another wild dorado bite. As long as the waters stay warm, the dorado will hang around!

Gerry and Jeri again with another hook-up!

Winds were blowing strong earlier in the week but gave us a break as the week went on and provided some windows for some very good fishing. There just aren’t many anglers this time of year, especially as we get closer to the holidays.

Most of the town is starting to fill with folks just looking to enjoy some sunshine, especially with temperatures being very comfortable in the low 80’s during the day and low 70’s at night. It’s a good time to be in town. Just not that many folks are here to go fishing or, if they do, they just want a single-day on the water or so.

For the few we had, the dorado provided some great biters with generally larger fish than we have seen in the previous weeks. Fish in the 15-25 pound class were not unusual and many smaller fish were thrown back. In addition, at the south-end of Cerralvo Island, there’s still a nice spot of wahoo there if you hit it at the right time.

On the day when the winds were a bit too strong, we fished inside along the reefs and rocks and had some great action on pargo, cabrilla, jack crevalle, snapper and even some amberjack and sierra. Still no tuna, but some of the commercial guys hooked some hogs in the 100-pound range.

Live bait has not been an issue unless the winds are blowing too strong for the bait guys to throw nets in the shallow bait areas and big waves prevent them from catching the bait.

Winds are supposed to be coming up this week but there’s some windows in-between.  Check with us.  We keep a tight watch on the weather for you!

 

THE WHALESHARKS ARE IN THE BAY AND SEASON FINALLY OPENED!

Whalesharks are now in the bay in the shallow water just a few hundred yards from the malecon. We’re running trips to go swim with the whalesharks now. Ask us about this incredible adventure!

 

After being closed since the Covid-quarantine back in late March, swimming with the whalesharks has been prohibited in La Paz Bay.  Well, they finally issued permits and the season was re-opened this week!  It’s pretty exciting to swim with these magnificent animals in the shallow warm waters of La Paz Bay.   It’s totally National Geographic stuff and a life-time experience.

Ask us about trips.  We can set up the whole package with lodging, activities, transportation, fishing and more…and of course, swimning with the whalesharks!  You can write me directly:  tailhuntersportfishinglapaz@gmail.com

 

WHALEWATCHING SEASON COMING TOO!

The grey whale migration has started from the Bering Sea and the whales are headed to Baja’s warm waters and prime time whale-watching at Bahia Magdalena is late January to March!  We’re putting packages together to spend time with the largest migratory animals in the world in the warm-calm waters of Bahia Magdalena.  Reach out and touch!

Rubbing the head of your new best friend!

 

That’s our story!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Nov. 2-10, 2020

WINDS BLOW BUT GOOD VARIETY OF FISH!

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Nov. 3-10, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

 

Tag-team tandem of Roger and Donna Thompson with a double hookup wahoo while trolling off the south end of Cerralvo Island.

Our own amigo, Jorge Romero pulled this 22-pound (he had a scale) barred pargo out’ve the rocks. He told me he had a big barbecue for friends and family and grilled the whole fish!

Captain Lorenzo was out with a La Paz friend and they took this nice blue marlin.

One day fishing north of town for Joe and Kristen Bettridge produced a box full of dorado like these. They also released fish as well.

Some good eating on the fish cleaning table. Mark Bronge from Los Angeles and Leif Dover from Atlanta GA have some nice barred pargo, snapper and cabrilla (seabass) ready for the freezer to take home.

Dave Hale from Northern California has a pretty typical variety of inshore fish for his efforts. I see some big triggerfish, cabrilla, snapper and pargo.

 

This is that time of year just before the holidays when there aren’t that many folks around that are fishing. The snowbirds are starting to arrive, but overall, town is pretty quiet and it’s a nice time to be in La Paz with sunny skies and mild temperatures in the day and comfortable temps in the evenings!

The fishing has been surprisingly good, all things considered. Some of the waters are getting cooler as we get more northerly winds that will be increasing over the next few weeks and months and transition in to cooler water fishing.

However, in the meantime, we still have some good bites taking place.

Still no tuna to talk about, but dorado from 5 to 25 pounds are relatively prevalent and are providing lots of fun for both our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet and Tailhunter La Paz Fleet. The fish are scattered over quite a few areas, but once you find a single fish, there’s often a whole pack swimming along with it ready to chew.

Sailfish and marlin including both blues, blacks and some stripers have been hooked and lost and at the south end of Cerralvo Island, that tends to be the hot spot for some big 40-60 pound wahoo.

For inshore fishing, that’s where we’re really getting the variety including pargo, cabrllla, dog-tooth snapper, triggerfish, bonito, jack crevalle and dog-tooth snapper along with sierra and amberjack.

WHALE WATCHING SEASON COMING UP – JANUARY to MARCH!

 

We’re booking our whalewatching season that’s coming up in just a few months.  Don’t miss out on this incredible experience.  Prime time is late January through March.  We can arrange an entire package for you and the family!

 

That’s my story!

NORTHERN WINDS START UP BUT FISH BITE

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Bahia Suenos for Week of Oct. 26-Nov. 2, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE LA PAZ VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Yup…those are yellowfin tuna! Only the 2nd batch of tuna we have seen all season in a STRANGE year! Leif Dover from Atlanta GA and Mark Bronge from Los Angeles CA went south almost to the northern east cape to find the fish as well as a nice dorado and a big triggerfish. The next day, winds came up and they weren’t able to get to the spot again.

Surprising to still find roosterfish this late in the season, but Mark caught and released his first rooster just off Punta Perrico.

Our amigo, Gary Wagner, from Colorado loves to fish the twilight bite when staying at his Rancho Costa Resort in Muertos and shows off a tasty barred pargo.

Captain Alfredo helps Alla Cazier from Arizona on her first trip to La Paz and found some nice dorado north of La Paz.

Oh yea, this is the right kind! Leif has a big dog-tooth snapper on the gaff caught the last of 6 days on the water with us.

 

If you find the right spot, the dorado can go nuts! First day success for Leif and Mark with some good-looking mahi on the cutting table.

Well…we can definitely tell the seasons are changing. The air temps are getting cooler with the highs this last week a really comfortable 85 on the average and really pleasant evenings.

However, with the change in temperature, we’re also getting more winds, especially the north winds that blow from about November to April that can make fishing a little bumpy and choppy. It can also hinder our ability to get to certain fishing holes and even to get to the places where we get live bait.

That’s what happened this past week. We had 2-3 days of pretty good windy conditions and whitewater on the ocean. For better-or-worse, not too many folks fishing this week which will be typical as we get closer to the holidays. More snowbirds looking for sunshine coming to town than anglers. More walk-in anglers to our offices and folks just looking for one day of fishing out on the water.

All that being said, there was still some excellent fishing to be had. Some boats did better than others. Some area were much more productive than others.

Our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet had the most variety.

We actually got into some tuna…finally…after almost an entire season with no tuna. The guys had to run really far, however. They went south almost to the north end of the East Cape. They made it one day, but then after that, it was too windy to get there on subsequent days.

Still, there were some legit 10-20 pound dorado, cabrilla, snapper, jack crevalle, bonito, several types of pargo and we even got one big dog-tooth snapper as well pulled out’ve the rocks.

For our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet, several days, it was simply too windy. All whitecaps and rough water. However, there’s dorado right in the bay around where the big tanker ships are anchored off Punta Prieta only about 5 minutes from where we launch. There’s also sierra under those big boats.

Outside, seeing more marlin although we couldn’t get any of them to bite this week.

This coming week, it’s going to be breezy again, but not as bad as last week.

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report from Tailhunter Sportfishing for Week of Oct. 18-26, 2020

BIGGER and MORE DORADO FINALLY

La Paz – Las Arenas/ Muertos Bay/ Suenos Bay Fishing Report for Week of Oct. 18-26, 2020

MEXICAN MINUTE VIDEO REPORT

THE BIG PICTURE and the REST of the STORY…

Well-deserved thumbs-up from Captain Jorge and Jeff Sakuda who finally got his wahoo on his birthday! You can see the purple Rapala Xrap dangling from the wahoo’s mouth. Jeff also had a really nice week on dorado too. See photos below.

Our friends from Henderson NV, Gary and Lois Tsunoda had a great week on dorado and pose for one-day’s catch on the beach at Bahia Muertos. The fish were definitely larger this week.

In 25 years in La Paz, I’ve only seen maybe one other white marlin caught. Captain Pancho and Leif Dover caught and released this one near Las Arenas.  They also caught a mess of dorado and released many of them as well.

John Washington is another of our favorite Nevada amigos. In fact, he and his wife have visited us twice in the last 6 weeks! John got himself a nice late-season roosterfish here that he released. More of their photos below. I think they must have caught about 8 different species.

Now that’s color for you! A fresh bull dorado with Marianne Sugawara and her favorite Captain Jorge.

They didn’t catch ALOT of any one species, but Captain Gerardo got Arla and John Washington on a bunch of different species. On the table, I see dorado, jack crevale, triggerfish, snapper, cabrilla and bonito.

Nothing like those first bites early in the morning on your first day fishing, right-off-the-bat. Nice legit bull dorado in the boat for Jeff and Captain Jorge.

Dorado are incredibly colorful sportfish. Lois Tsunoda has another one to put in the box! She went home with alot of bags of fish!

Some tasty cabrilla headed for the dinner table at his resort in Muertos, Gary Wagner owner of the Rancho Costa.

A good first day on the water for Leif (from Atlanta GA) and Mark (from California)

Alex Grant lives in San Francisco, but stopped in La Paz on his way to go fishing in Florida so we got him on the water for one day and he ran into the dorado schools as well.

A “decent” day of fishing! Jeff and Marianne Sakuda with Captain Jorge on their first of 3 days of fishing showing dorado, pargo and cabrilla!

Despite a few bumps during the week like a bit of drizzle; some wind days; and some bumpy oceans…most of the week was pretty good and for fishing turned into one of the better fishing weeks of the season.

With water temps running about 85 degrees and air temperatures about 95, the dorado really came on strongly. Limits of not unusual.

For our Tailhunter La Paz Fleet, limits were not only unusual, but often folks caught and then had to release so many dorado, they sometimes were back to the beach before lunch. Most of the fish were school-sized 5 to 15 pounders, but lots of fun, especially on light tackle or for first-timers. About half the fish hooked were released either because boxes were already full or folks were only keeping the larger fish.

For our Tailhunter Las Arenas Fleet, there weren’t as many dorado, but the dorado were some of the largest of the season. No big monsters, but fish were 10-25 pounders…a size we hadn’t seen in many months. Areas included the buoys, Punta Perrico and south towards Los Alamos. But, the schools could honesty show up anywhere. There were a few days when it was bumpy and windy and our anglers had to fish inshore for pargo, snapper and cabrilla, but overall, most folks fish several days with us and they made of for the slow days on their other days when they stacked up the larger dorado.

Additionally, there was always the chance of wahoo as well. Not many wahoo caught, but the fish were definitely there. Maybe one panga per day got a wahoo on the average. The dark Rapalas and dark Nomads were the best lures. The downside was that if you went trolling for wahoo and they didn’t bite, it was often too late to go chase anything else so you stood the chance of missing out on something else to put in the box.

There’s still some 5-20 pound roosterfish around plus a few marlin biters that we haven’t seen in a bit…and there are always rockfish to chase as well.

Just a heads-up that as typical this time of year, the winds are getting strong and from the north. Once these get pretty consistent, waters can start to cool; get rougher; and change the complexion of the fishing. Looking at the forecast for the coming week, several days this week will have strong north winds.  It is definitely cooler.  Fall is in the air.

2021 FILLING FAST – STILL OPENINGS FOR 2020 WHILE FISH BITE!

Our 2021 bookings are filling fast so check your calendars and don’t wait.  We will NOT be attending any of the sportsmans shows this year, as far as we know.  It could change, but most have been canceled.  So, don’t wait to see us at a show!  Get in touch with us.  Some dates are already sold out.   We still have spots open for this year so how about a quick get-away before the holidays?  Write me directly:  Jonathan@tailhunter.com!

 

 

That’s our story!  Have a great week!
