New Year, more Fishing !


La Paz Fishing Report / January 10th 2021

Weather & Bait

Feliz Año Nuevo,
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday. I am actually writing this from Dallas Tx. Yesterday we had 3 inches of snow. Yuk.
This is the hardest time to write a report regarding fishing activities, since there isn’t much.
The crowds have been pretty steady thru the holidays. Now that La Paz has direct flights from Dallas and Phoenix we are expecting tourism to pick up quickly.

Fish Talk

Getting back to fishing, big bait are real easy to make in the bay. All the macs and cabs you want. Sardines are still available but it’s kinda based on reservations. The guys aren’t throwing nets everyday since we don’t have a lot of boats out.
As most of you are aware. This is our windy season, and it’s not disappointing the wind surfers. We have had plenty of it. On the days we can get out we have had pretty good fishing on the high points off the islands for yellowtail. These fish aren’t real big, but it’s early in the season. Just having them here is a real good sign that the season is winding up. A few cabrilla have been landed at the same spots either live bait fishing with weights or jigging.
Slow trolling sardines or small lures in the bay will still put a couple of dorado in the bag. These guys just refuse to leave. The Sierra are also on the feed. These toothy critters have been larger the normal this year, almost like little wahoo and good eating.
That’s about it. As I said not too much.
Whale shark adventures are in full swing. This is a real crowd pleaser and super close to the marina. I definitely recommend swimming or at least watching from the comfort of the boat as the gentle giants cruise around feeding on the krill and plankton that gets trapped in the back of La Paz bay.
If your looking for a quick getaway and tired of being cold, this is a good time to come on down. Our nights a cool but the days are in the high 70’s.
Anyway that’s a bout it
As winter starts to fade and spring pokes her nose in we should start to see a lot more action.
Be well be safe.
Keep the faith
