Farewell to March with a Tuna !

La Paz Fishing Report / March 28th 2021

Weather & Occupancy

As we bid fare well to March and the winter has moved out, now the sun seeking tourists get to move in. Historically La Paz is not nearly as busy during spring break as Cabo. And this year is no different, but it is definitely busier than normal. It looks like most of the hotels are booked up and the Puerta Cortes resort where we are located has been extremely busy.
The weather has been pretty typical for this time of year. The winds are still coming out of the north with water temps in the low 70’s. As we head further into spring we should see the winds lessen and the direction change to the more favorable Coromuel winds out of the southwest.

Fish Talk

As I mentioned last week I believe the yellowtail were ready to spawn on the next full moon, which occurred Last night. My guess is, some fish lovin was going on this week by the current feeding pattern. The bite is solid on the seamounts and rocky points, but now the fish are feeding primarily on the surface. This normally occurs after the spawn.
On the higher rocky spots the Cabrilla and Pargo are also chew but, at depth eating both macks and sardines. This year’s yellowtail season started early, so it’s tough to say how long it will last but, usually they hang our thru April. We will see.
We had a charter this week fishing the surface at El Bajo and stuck a real nice 60lb tuna. Yep that’s right yellow fin tuna. First for the year for the BACo fleet. Hopefully this is a sign and not a fluke (pardon the pun) for a promising year for YFT that eluded us last year. Since yellowtail and grouper are the predominant fish in spring if there’s anything else happening nobody is really looking.
This is the last week for the American Airlines flight in and out of LaPaz until June. It looks like that worked out well for them and it definitely worked out well for us. So glad to see them returning this summer.
That’s about it.
Be safe and stay healthy.
Keep the faith
