March Madness Returns !

La Paz Fishing Report / March 7th 2021

Weather & Bait

March Madness, Enero loco y Marzo otro poco. Last week was a good news bad news kinda week. The bad news was the wind kicked up a little more then expected. This not only limits our time on the water but, also makes finding the ever so important bait more difficult to locate. The good news is there are limits of yellowtail to be had if you hold your mouth right. My dad use to say that to me, I really don’t know what it means.
Not much has really changed regarding fishing from the last report. The mornings are dedicated to making bait. If it takes 30 minutes that’s great, if it takes 2 hours then so be it. You need bait. When we find large schools of mackerel we will catch extra and put them in our bait motels to help the guests save time. We do what we can to help.
The water conditions haven’t changed much. The temperature is a cool 65-68 degrees and really green. The morning tide is descending. We much rather have an ascending tide but the good news is the tide is big. As long as the water is moving the fishing is better.

Fish Talk

Same as last week the bite has been the best on the surface. This is much nicer for a many reasons. We can fish more baits at the same time by using our outriggers. This increases your chance of multiple hook ups and everyone gets to fish. Second when you do get hooked up you’re not 10 off the bottom. This increases your landing percentage 10 fold and saves 50 ft of line from being shredded on the rocks.
If the surface bite slows down or the pesky seals become your fishing buddies, we drop down using weights or down riggers. Same bait same gear. The fish in deeper water tend to be a bit larger plus you are now fishing the grouper and Snapper zones. Everybody wins, well except the fish.
We are starting to see a big uptick in reservation. As we enter the sweet spot of our winter, spring fishing so get booked if you are interested in this type of fishing. April and May the AmberJacks move in. These guys get big and will put you to the wood. Great fun and great eating.
We have a group going out tomorrow on a 4 day fishing adventure on Pacifico. They will be anchored literally 10 minutes from the fishing grounds using our 51’ power Cat as the mothership and Fishtale our 39’ Seavee C/C as their fishing boat. This is an incredible event as it allows you to be the first boat on the fishing grounds and if desired the last ones to leave. On the other hand if you don’t feel like a cold sandwich for lunch, you’re close enough to go back in for a hot meal then head back out for the afternoon bite. Doesn’t suck. 
All the fish processing is done right there for you while you’re enjoying the first of many margaritas.
This trip will be in next weeks report. I’ll let you know how it went, but that pretty much wraps up the week.
Finally, La Paz has lowered the Covid status from a 5 to a 3. This will allow business to accommodate more people. This doesn’t mean let your guard down but the trend is in the right direction. I read yesterday that Mexico has 80 million vaccines shipped that will be enough to vaccinate more than half of the entire country’s population, so we’ll keep an eye on that.
Please be safe and kind to each other.
Keep the faith
