La Paz Baja Mexico - Fishing Reports
Dorado are the main species and spread out through the La Paz boundaries. inshore fishing for Pargitos, trigger fish and Cabrilla is still solid when the currents are not too strong. Offshore the bite for, Striped Marlin and Sailfish is pretty consistent trolling small to medium size lures or ballyhoos
The Dorado are still the main event with the largest concentration in the San Juan area around the buoys. Most days limiting out early is not a problem. it’s been a bit of a scratch for most pelagic species. There has been some limited activity around Punta Norte for Wahoo. Nothing crazy.
The Dorado once again seem to be the most cooperative. A little further out on the seamounts big Cubera snapper are on the chew. Further offshore the stripe Marlin are on track. They seem to be hanging in small pods of 3-5 fish so doubling up is not uncommon. Most of the Marlin are released to fight another day.I hate to say the tuna have been a disappointment so far this year. There’s been some reports of Wahoo on the south end of Cerralvo.
The waters are stacked with 20-40lb Dorado. Further off shore around the seamounts schools of Striped Marlin are thick and on the chew. 3-5 fish per boat is not uncommon. Of course most of these fish are released so no harm there. Trolling small and medium size lures in darker colors are getting hammered. We had some clients actually pulling lure away from Marlin in pursuit of their lures.
Bottom fishing on the seamounts for giant Cubera snapper is a great way to end your day as well as fill your cooler. Fish to 50lbs are coming in almost daily.
