Mid-November Fishing Report!

La Paz Fishing Report / november 14th 2021

Weather & Bait

I can’t believe we are only weeks away from thanksgiving. This year seemed to fly by faster then usual.
We are still experiencing warm days with cool mornings, making for the perfect day whatever your agenda is.
The water is definitely starting to change. The cooler off colored water is becoming the norm not the exception. We did see strong current lines around Cerralvo that divided the water like it was man made.
This week was one of the toughest I’ve seen all season. The week started with strong persistent winds from the North. By mid week the winds died down but left us with 3-4 ft residual wind swells from the North East making fishing uncomfortable at best. These conditions scattered the bait turned over the water and made fishing as tough as the swells were uncomfortable.

Fish Talk

All that being said we did still have guest go out and do their best. A nice grade of Dorado were moving around from buoy to bouy in the punta Coyote area. Slow trolling sardines along the string of buoys and current lines drew a few bites.
Marlin are still holding around El Charro. These fish are active and plentiful, if your willing to make the run North you should be well rewarded.
Tuna are a no show all the way up and down the Baja. Everybody has their version of why and I’m sure it’s some combination of many theories but, bottom line is they are not here.
Regarding the wahoo, we are now well into the season. A few of these toothy critters have been caught or speared but we haven’t seen any real concentration around the traditional areas.
The water temperature can definitely come down a few more degrees which may turn the scissor lips on.
I have a trip this week scheduled to start looking for yellowtail. This is really early for the species but there is a thermocline around 60ft so I thought I would down rigger a few old haunts and see what’s going on.
Inshore smaller cabrilla and Pargitos, Palmettos, are hitting both live bait and artificial lures. These are all great eating and a blast on light tackle.

Updates of Magbay

I can’t say enough about the Mag Bay trip. The tuna are running from 35lbs to 265lbs both on rod and reel and Spear. A variety of triple digit grouper are being caught and mostly released on the seamounts and the Wahoo are thick as thieves and ripping most of our gear to shreds. Many groups are already booking next year before we get them back to the airport.
That’s pretty much it for the week. Will keep you posted on next week’s events.
