November 21st Fishing Report!

La Paz Fishing Report / november 21st 2021

Weather & Bait

Things are really hopping here with all the racers and support vehicles from the Baja 1000. The hotels and restaurants are full, to the point that some are not taking anymore reservations or allowing people to even wait for openings.
It’s crazy but, good crazy. The weather has been perfect all week. Cool morning giving way to warm afternoons with a light breeze to cool things down in the late afternoon.
The water is definitely starting to transition, as we are starting to see more green colored water further offshore. The surface temperature is 81 degrees and slowly cooling. Bait is still available around the Tecolote area, and a must have if your fishing for Dorado. These guys seem to be moving from one side of the island to the other. 

Fish Talk

We have boats fishing both sides, calling each other when the bite starts. These are no longer the little schoolies, we’re talking 15-25 lbs. We had a couple of groups that came from Peru chasing only Marlin. Their success was limited but, that’s how it goes when you fish a specific species, trust my I’ve done it plenty only to be disappointed more then not.
As I wrote last week the Wahoo conditions I’m my humble opinion were coming together. This week the moon was big, the water is cooling and a lot of larger baits like Bolitos and chihuil are starting to gather around the ridges and seamounts. All that being said guess who showed up, yep not only there are big numbers, they’re big fish. Of course with Wahoo your hook up vs. landing percentage is not always great but most boats fishing for these rockets were hooking 5 a day landing around 3. Not so bad. I think the smallest fish on the scale was 35 lbs with many over 45-50lbs. Purple Nomad Marauders and ballyhoo with trolling weights and pink Brujas (sea witches) we’re getting crunched.
Hopefully this is just the beginning of the wahoo fest.
We have had a few yellowtail and cabrilla starting to show around their normal areas. We will start exploring this to see if it’s a fluke or if it’s an early Christmas gift.

Updates of Magbay

We have a couple more weeks of charters on Cazador in Mag Bay before we bring her home. I believe all the days are booked but if you have any interest in finishing your season on some of the best fishing grounds in Baja give us a call.
That’s it for this week.
Be safe and patient traveling this holiday season.
Keep the faith
