La Paz Baja Mexico - Fishing Reports
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.
The daily catch rate is definitely stabilizing as the water temperatures are normalizing and clearing up.
The Dorado are the main story. Although these fish are mixed in size they are predominantly large ranging from 25-45 lbs.
With that said most other species striped Marlin, Sailfish, are all on the chew. Trolling medium size plastics or site fishing for tailing fish and pitching a live Mack will do the trick.
Though the Dorado are not concentrated in any particular area they are good size avg 20-30 lbs.
With the cold water returning so has the yellowtail bite. It’s very uncommon to have yellowtail this late in the year but we’ll take it. AmberJacks are still cruising the seamounts.
