La Paz Fishing Report / December 1st 2019

Weather & Bait

As much as I enjoy writing you every week, sharing our timeless adventures, this week was all about weather and the baja winter starting to settle in.

It started with the typical north blow. This is our prevailing wind of winter normally on a 4-3 or 5-2 day schedule, meaning 5 days of wind 2 days of Beautiful calm seas. By mid week though we had a late tropical storm that brought the Baja peninsula 30 mph winds and enough rain to last a year. I drove to Cabo the other day and it looked more like Ireland than Mexico.

We did squeeze in a few days of fishing from our Magbay campBad weather or not, the Pacific fishing is off the charts. Large gulf and broom tail grouper, Cubera snapper on the rocks to 50 lbs.
On the surface the Stripe Marlin are still everywhere chasing the bait balls getting fat for the winter. The wahoo are still stacked up a little further north on the 23. This is a little further run and we need to pick our days, but what an experience if you go, limits of wahoo in an hour, no problem.
 
 

Fish Talk

Tuna are scattered through out the banks. These are not the giants we are known for this time of year but there’s plenty of them and multiple hook ups not uncommon. Back to the sea of Cortez, all I can say is we fought more wind than fish but we’re hoping for some better weather in the coming week.

The mackerel have moved in the bay. We are sending a panga out this week to make bait to fill the bait motels. We will send out a couple of guide boats early in the week weather permitting, to scout around. Prior to the storm the Tuna were back on both Cerralvo and Espíritu Santo. Yellowtail and AJ’s were also in the mix. If their still around our Guides will locate them. The Dorado have now moved in the bay following the mackerel. This makes for an easy day on the water and great table fair.

What's Next

That’s all I have for the week, hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
 
Will keep you posted as the baja winter progresses.

Until next week,
Keep the faith
