La Paz Fishing Report / february 20th 2021
Weather & Bait
Last week we had a lot of wind, even a few days the port was closed so I don’t think you missed too much.
Normally this time of year is a bit slow due to spring break being around the corner. Since Mexico doesn’t really have any travel restrictions I
believe this years spring break is going to be crazier then ever. If your planning on coming down I would definitely start looking at flights.
The Whale sharks are in full swing with plenty of these giants close to shore feeding. This is a real treat especially if
the wind isn’t cooperating for other boating activities. It’s a must do.
As I said the wind has been a bit of a bummer, with strong North blows sometimes the entire week. We should have a few more weeks of
this before the spring weather starts to switch over allowing many more days on the water.
Not much has changed regarding the bite. Perhaps a couple more fish per boat, a good thing. Both yellowtail and Almaco jacks are settling
in around the seamounts and rocky spots. Jigging or slow trolling live bait at depth using weights or down riggers are attracting both the
Jacks and cabrilla and Pargo. The Sierra have seemed to move on as well as the Dorado.
The yellowtail have been nice size, ranging 20-25 lbs. with many swimming with jewelry on their lips due to out muscling the anglers and
getting rocked. Based on the fish counts I believe we are in for an epic YT season. We just need to get a few more days a week on the water.
The short of it is things are looking good. Our YT and bottom fishing should be strong thru May transitioning into our Dorado and Striped
Come on down and enjoy our 85 degree winter weather.
Keep the faith
