La Paz Fishing Report / February 2nd 2019

Weather & Bait

When I refer to it’s like Groundhog day, this time I’m not just say it figuratively, but literally, today is actually ground hog day.
 
On the figurative sense, not much has changed regarding weather. Strong and persistent northerlies most days with a bit of rain makes for cold snotty days on the water. We did get a couple of days this week where we could get out and start our yellowtail exploration.
 
Bait supplies are solid with plenty of Mackerel to be caught in various spots in the bay. As the season continues to build make sure you let your captain know you want plenty of these YT candies. We will start making bait at night in order to have plenty on hand for the boats going out.
 
Here in La Paz bay with all the bait that is literally stacked up, the Dorado have not left us. Limits of 10-15lb dorado can be caught on your way out to the fishing grounds. We were catching mackerel on sabíkis and the dorado were pulling them off before you could get the bait in the boat. BONUS.

Fish Talk

The yellowtail are just starting to show up. Nothing crazy but they’re here. This is great news being it’s early February, if this continues to build we should expect a killer YT season. We had boats averaging 1-5 fish per day. These fish are not the 30-50lb home guard variety but 15-20lb are real nice eating size. Both down rigging mackerel and on the yo-yo, scrambled egg pattern on the sea mounts and rocky points are the ticket.
 
These fish should start to build quickly in quality and quantity as spring is around the corner.
 
Cabrilla and Pargo are also mixed in with the moss backs, making for a nice variety for filling the coolers.
 
 

What's Next

We are back on the road starting Monday headed to Portland for the Pacific Northwest sportsman show. Show dates are the 5-9th of February.
 
Hopefully we will see a few of you around but more importantly we hope to see you this year in La Paz.
 

Until next week,
Keep the faith
