Autumn is here! Fishing Report

La Paz Fishing Report / September 26th 2021

Weather & Bait

Let’s get right into it.
With the 2nd half of Septembers weather has been much more stable than the 1st half, the water temperature and clarity are in great shape. Sardines are plentiful and still for sale at Tecolote. Live bait is a must, so don’t pass it up even if there are a few boats in front of you. It’s worth the wait. 

Fish Talk

I really can’t say much more about the dorado. The key is purchase your bait and get after it right away. The first boats on the fishing grounds will limit out in minutes. 15-20 lb class fish is the norm with the occasional 30 lb bonus fish coming over the rail.
Now comes the hard part, deciding the rest of the day, whether you go look for tuna or pursue the multiple species of billfish that are now available.
The wahoo fishing hasn’t developed yet but the water is still a few degrees too warm. My guess by next month we will be in full swing for these speedsters.
If this year is similar to last it will be an epic bite. Around Punta Norte there is literally a tonnage of pacific Bonito. These are the white meat Bonito very similar to tuna great eating as fish tartar or sashimi.
We are starting to catch some Sierra and roosters inshore. These are normally cool water species, not sure hats going on there. The Sierra are great eating grilled or smoked.
I personally went out last week and was surrounded by tuna in the 40-60 lb range. Unfortunately the fish had a case of lock jaw, at least for what I had to offer. They seem to be popping up off the point of the islands for a day or two then disappear. It’s kinda like wacky a mole. Eventually we’ll crack the code, or the fish will expand their food source. The good news is they are here.
Bottom fishing has been good when the currents aren’t raging for Pargo, cabrilla and trigger fish.
IMO, October is the best month for fishing and weather. The humidity starts to drop along with the morning air temperature. October is also the best month for and the largest variety of Pelagic’s.
Regarding the Mag bay multi day trips. We have one open week left in October and a couple in December. These dates are great fishing for Tuna, Wahoo and all billfish species. Yellowtail and grouper can also be found on the high spots. This is a once in a lifetime fishing experience. Please call the office if you have any interest.
Fall fishing is here,
Keep the faith
