La Paz Fishing Report / January 31st 2021
Weather & Bait
As January came to a close, winter conditions are in full swing, with COVID dominating the news and travel restrictions that are somewhat confusing and difficult to comply with traveling anywhere sounds exhausting.The winds are still blowing out of the North with some days strong enough to close the port or at least make a day out on the water uncomfortable. The water is green which is common for this time of year and the currents strong.Doesn’t sound like much fun, except for the fact that fishing is off the charts.Bait is plentiful, both large and small within 5 minutes of the marina and the yellowtail bite is 5 minutes from the bait.
As the crowds start to pick up we will venture off to the more traditional fishing grounds. I would assume they are stacked with fish as well. The more traditional areas will also have a larger variety of fish including Cabrilla, Pargo and Huachinangos. Overall the season is developing nicely. The next few months will yield the best eating varieties we have to offer. Not to sound like a broken record but the bay Is still holding Dorado. With the yellowtail in I wouldn’t target these fish as they are not very big but, it’s a nice bonus. On your way back to the marina look for the birds. Slow trolling a couple of sardines or small lures.
