Weather & Bait
As I watched the freezing news about the winter storms in the US, I would just like to say what a great week to be in La Paz. It made me realize that 70 degrees and sunny feels pretty damn nice. We did have a few days of wind, but nothing un-fishable. The mornings are cool so you will need a hoodie or something light. The afternoons are just incredible, make sure to bring your sunscreen, and for all of those thinking of taking a Cancún vacation anytime soon, we confidently suggest Baja as a more low key, and blunder free destination.
The water temperature is 65-68 degrees with low visibility. Most days bait has been easy to make. No more then 15 minutes and your done. If you find yourselves struggling don’t give up It’s much better to have bait then to not. Usually you can find some amigos on the fishing grounds with extra, most folks won’t mind passing a few off to you for a big gracias.
This week’s fishing was similar to last. We have a rising tide in the morning. This bite has been best on the deeper seamounts starting with a surface bite slow trolling mackerel or Caballitos. The hook up to land in percentage is higher with this technique due to the fact your not fishing within close to the bottom getting rocked.
