Mixed Bag May

La Paz Fishing Report / May 23th 2021


Weather & Bait

All I can really say, is it’s May.
May and the first half on June are traditionally our transition months. The winds slowly start changing from North to Southwest, the water warms up and the dirty green no visibility clears up to beautiful crystal blue, and best of all the Pelagic species migrate to our waters.
All this is happening right now. Bait is widely available around Tecolote and we have slabs of squid for sale at the office.
If you choose to fish this time of year it can be quite rewarding. 

Fish Talk

There are multiple species out there from inshore world class Roosters to 100 pound AmberJacks on the seamounts. The key to success for this time of year and this mistake is made often, by myself included, is fish for the species that are available. Fish for the fish that are feeding now. This changes weekly if not daily and it’s easy to get caught up in a particular favorite species that may decrease or eliminate your chance of catching anything. For example in the last two weeks we have had Dorado, Tuna,AmberJacks, African pompano, Cabrilla, Cubera Snapper and yellowtail.
Most of these fish were not caught on the same day or days. The bite rotates and we need to adjust.
Anyway that’s my 2 cents.
 

Tuna Talk

 I personally spent 3 days chasing tuna. I got one and a lot of sun.
Both our traditional rod and reel and Spearos had a good week. As I wrote most species are available and everybody’s going home with fish.
All the signs are out there pointing towards good year. I hope that’s not a Jinx.
We have added a couple of new boats to our fleet. Pacifico is our 51’ power cat. This boat is great for cruising around and entertaining or it’s an incredible platform for a mother ship for multiple day fishing adventures.
We also just acquired a 41’ Riviera sport fish. This is the perfect boat for you and a few friends for long range or multiple day blue water fishing.
Check out the pics, we got some real nice fish this week.
Keep the faith

For Scott, the tug is the drug... He's now retired from business to pursue his passion and fish as much as he possibly can.
