La Paz Fishing Report / January 26th 2019

Weather & Bait

Crowds are still pretty light here in La Paz, as winter still has a firm grip on our weather pattern. Strong northerlies are still dominating most of the days, with the occasional break that reminds us we still live in paradise.
 
For the most part the water conditions are typical for this time of year with temperatures around 69-72 degrees. The water is off color with strong currents. Again typical for this time of year.
 
Bait is still widely available. Mackerel and caballitos are abundant in the bay, 20 minutes with a sabiki and your bait tank is full.

Fish Talk

Due to weather conditions and light fishing pressure I don’t have a lot to report. We have had a few charters fishing structure around the island and seamounts with some success with nice early season Yellowtail.

These fish normally start to show up mid to late February so this is a nice bonus for us. The best way to fish these moss backs is controlled depth fishing. Using a down rigger slow trolling a live mackerel on or around structure will get your ticket punched.

We are still hearing of tuna breezing around he areas they have been at all summer, but with the wind and currents being up, there’s not much chance of effectively fishing for them.
 

The Yellowtail action should only improve from here. Will keep you posted.

What's Next

Patrick and I are finishing up the last day of the Sportsman show in Puyallup Washington, next stop Portland Oregon. That we be our last show as we head back to finish preparing for the 2020 fishing season.
 
The newest addition to our fleet is scheduled to arrive February 15th. We are all very excited to commission the new Leopard 51’ power Cat. She is an incredible boat with long range capabilities and the comforts of home. We are already booking multi day fishing and island trips. Please call the office or go to the web site to inquire.
 
 

That’s it for the week.
Keep the faith
