La Paz Fishing Report / May 28th
Bait & Weather
The afternoon currents are ripping causing long current lines stacked with sargasso grass. The key is to troll small lures or ballyhoos around the current lines chumming sardines every couple of minutes. The rub is keeping the small chunks of grass from running down your line fouling up your lure. Patience is the name of the game. We have caught some real nice Dorado 30 pound class in open water. No grass no birds just blind strikes. Most of these fished are paired male and female. If your patient and lucky you have a great chance of catching both or in some cases losing both.
The striped Marlin are migrating up the Sea of Cortez in large pods. If this is your targeted species 5-7 fish per day in the 140lb range is pretty common. Trolling 12” plastics or pitching live bait to tailing fish are getting bit mostly on the ascending tide. Most of the Marlin are being caught 15-20 miles offshore.
Inshore fishing has been real consistent. Pargo have been up in the shallows spawning. If the water is clear enough you can actually see the water turn red from so many fish doing their thing.
Roosters are combing the beaches in search of food. Slow trolling Caballitos or lady fish around the sandy areas of the island is instant bendo. Not much eating quality but a blast to catch, especially if you are site fishing throwing poppers and swim baits. If Rooster fish are on your bucket list this is your chance.
