November Reels On !

La Paz Fishing Report / November 8th 2020

Weather & Bait

Our first full week of November didn’t really yield many surprises. The crowds were light, and between COVID and the US elections I think people were a little pre occupied.
The water temperature Is 83 degrees with decent clarity. This will no doubt start to change as the prevailing North winds continues to build in both strength and frequency. Sardines are available at Tecolote as they have been for months. We’ve been pretty lucky this year as Some years the bait is up North by the Island causing higher prices and longer travel times.

Fish Talk


The Dorado are still scattered throughout the area, most of these fish are the small schoolies 10-12 lbs with the occasional big bull or cow mixed in.

If you are looking to bring fish home Dorado should be on your daily target list. In most cases you can get your limit early and then spend the day fishing for your favorite seasonal species. Most days we have a couple of boats at the Bajo or Punta Norte trolling for Wahoo with success. When the currents are favorable, 1-2 fish per angler 3-4 fish per spearo is not uncommon. These speedsters have been large this year averaging 40-70 lbs.

Black and Blue Marlin are still in the area. Most of these guys are not the big dogs like we normally see but they fight as hard as any fish and put on an aerial display worth anybody’s time.
Still no consistent tuna bite. I’m starting to believe this may be the year the tuna just didn’t show up. Maybe they took a wrong turn or maybe they got wrapped up by the tuna seiners when we were all in lock down and nobody was around to see it. Either way a no show.

As the water temperature continues to cool the bottom fishing will improve, filling the coolers with snapper and grouper. Our Mag Bay trips are booking up, currently the Wahoo are on a strong bite mixed with 20-30 lb Yellow fin. We will be fishing these grounds thru the winter. This trip is a little more rustic then some might want but it’s far from camping and the fishing is nothing short of spectacular. Please let us know if you have any interest. We haven’t had any changes from the government regarding COVID restrictions so all is the as it was this summer.

That’s it for this week.

Keep and eye on the flights from American Airlines as they are supposed to start flying direct from Dallas and Phoenix to La Paz on December 19th.

We will keep you posted,

Keep the faith
