La Paz Fishing Report / 24th November 2019
Weather & Bait
It’s been a tough week for being out on the water, even for spearfishing. For most of the week the wind has been dictating our fishing schedule. We did have a few days where we could get out to the fishing grounds without getting your butt beat and to our surprise found good fishing.
The water just flat looks horrible. After the rains from last week the visibility is less then 15 feet and extremely green. Wednesday we found the tuna on the chew on the North end of Cerralvo. The fish average 70 lbs and some boats came back with 2-4 fish per boat.
On Thursday though those same fish got lock jaw, we metered a ton of fish at 50 feet but couldn’t coax them up, but the same day for the folks that didn’t want to travel that far out fished the south end of Espíritu Santo and nailed tuna to 90 lbs. for the readers that aren’t familiar with the area this spot is only 20 minutes from the marina. Dorado are still hanging around the current lines, slow trolling sardines around the debris washed out from last weeks rain will get the job done.
We did finally find large schools of mackerel in the bay. We will start sending skiffs out next week to start making bait in the evenings. Hopefully we will have plenty to go around, as these baits are favorite baits for almost every species. There have been a few yellowtail caught on the yo-yo around the rocky spots. If these guys start gathering in any quantity the mackerel will bust this wide open.
