November wrapping up

La Paz Fishing Report / November 22nd 2020

Weather & Bait

As we quickly approach the colder months of winter, and the COVID virus picking up steam the crowds seem to be thinning out a bit. The news in the US lately has been pretty focused on limiting travel to essential only.
The hard core folks who still want to fish are being rewarded even as our water and weather conditions start to change. Sardines are still available and are doing the job on the rocky spots for Cabrilla and Pargo. The Inshore fishing is picking up nicely. Back in the bay of La Paz thru the San Lorenzo channel and around punta Coyote, anglers trolling small rapalas or slow trolling live bait are are getting plenty of action with Sierra and small grouper.

Fish Talk

There are large schools of Dorado in the channel between Isla Cerralvo and Rosario. Finding these fish has been pretty easy, just look up the frigates are working overtime. These fish are mixed in size from peanuts to 30 lbs, so be patient and release the smaller fish, remember your limit is two per angler.
The Wahoo fishing picked up this past week. Both the north and south end of Cerralvo as well as el bajo seamount. Trolling dark colored Rápalas, Marauders and rigged ballyhoo with trolling weights on the rising tide are getting plenty of action. We had one boat with 8 hookups and 3 landed to 60 lbs. not the best catch to land ratio but that’s Wahoo fishing. Not much else on the Pelagic species. The water is changing quickly and I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing Yellowtail in the counts after the holidays.
Sorry to say, the big nada on the tuna front. It was a very disappointing year for what I consider our bread and butter species. Hopefully next year.
Whale sharks are in full swing with daily trips going out to swim with these peaceful giants.

Our Mag bay liveaboard season is up and running. With some of our finest fishing boats and the 51’ power cat as lodging, we’ve taken some of the rustic out of remote fishing . The fishing has been off the charts. limits of Wahoo by lunch striped Marlin until your arms are sore catch and release obviously is the norm. Unfortunately strong North winds are cutting into the days on water, so Plan a few extra days if you want to fish this remote fishing grounds.
According to the American Airlines website they are showing the flights from La Paz to Dallas direct starting December 19th. So that looks like a go.
That’s it for the week.
Keep the faith
