September Fishing

La Paz Fishing Report / September 6th 2020

This week we were definitely blessed with better weather. The normal morning coromuel winds are settling down by late morning giving way to calm flat seas and air temp in the high 90’s. The humidity sneaks up on you in the afternoon making the day seem a little steamy but once the sun sets the evenings have been quite nice.

If I got my facts straight the government has lowered our COVID level to 4. This means we can now have a higher percentage of people fishing per boat eating in the restaurants as well as now you can order that margarita after fishing without having to order any food. The beaches are now open and the Malecon (Broadwalk) curfew has been extended until 11pm, I believe.
We did experience a small earthquake 4.1 on Thursday but no damage was reported thank goodness. Just Another example of Mother Nature letting us know who’s in charge.
The first half of the week was pretty quiet, not many people out fishing, but by mid week we had full loads and decent fishing. The main attraction was once again the Dorado. Fish in the mid range from 10-20 pounds are being caught on sardines and small lures. The biggest difference this week from last is the fish have moved back into the bay. They are literally in front of the marina hanging around the oil tankers anchored thru out the bay. Oddly enough we are traveling further to buy bait then we are to catch fish.

A couple of spearo guided trips did well on the seamounts with Cubera snapper AmberJacks and a few wahoo to fill their coolers. One of our guest shot a real nice 40lb dorado at la Reina. I had a chance to fish this week for a change chasing the ever elusive tuna. I had to travel much further then our daily charters go, ended up being a two day sleep on the deck gig but found a few schools of porpoises holding footballs size tuna. Super happy to find them but the big guys just haven’t come up yet. All conditions are positive with nice clear blue water, temperature range from 84-89 degrees.

This season looks like it’s just going to be a late starter but I still feel like things are going to happen. Good numbers of striped Marlin are being caught and released. My guess with the small to medium size tuna working their way up to channel the big blues and blacks aren’t far behind. With the big Marlin tournaments just around the corner we’re really anticipating a banner year.
Tropical storm Julio has formed a few hundred miles south of Cabo. According to the National Hurricane Center the computer models show the storm passing well West of us.
That’s it for now, be safe
Keep the faith scotto
