Easter Fishing Report

La Paz Fishing Report / April 23rd

Now with Easter and spring break in the rear view mirror things got pretty quiet . Actually April and May are an ideal time to take advantage of the incredible weather, not too hot with a nice gentle breeze, cool nights and light crowds.
Bait is still plentiful both mackerel in the bay and sardines around the corner near Tecolote. This time of year I strongly recommend both large and small baits.
With all the spring species (Yellowtail, Pargo and Cabrilla) still available and the Pelagic’s ( Dorado, Roosters and striped Marlin) starting to show the daily variety is yours for the choosing. Unfortunately the yellowtail have seemed to thin out a bit. This is probably due to the water temperatures warming up faster than normal. That being said we should see the likes of our summer species coming north sooner rather than later.
This is also the start of the AmberJack season. Personally I prefer the eating quality of these jacks over the yellowtail, but that’s just my opinion.
The ridge between the north end of Cerralvo and La Reina are the prime feeding grounds for the Pez Fuerte, bring your big boy pants as they will put the wood to you in short order.
Inshore fishing is in full swing. Slow trolling Caballitos or site casting poppers to breezing Roosters along the beaches as well as small grouper and snapper along the rocky shoals is a great way to spend your day on the water.

I’m starting to hear chatter that this year may be an El Niño. If this does occur the water temperature will be warmer then normal creating ideal fishing conditions as well as increased storm activity. We will keep you posted on this development.
We are starting to take reservations for the fall Mag Bay trips. We have limited space so these trips fill up quickly. Please let us know if you have any interest. This is truly a experience of a lifetime for epic fishing of multiple species.Hats it for the week.

Keep the faith
