La Paz Fishing Report / June 19th

Weather & Bait

Just as I thought conditions were starting to stabilize with summer officially only days away it’s like the wheels fell off and everything went to crap.
This week was just odd. The first couple of days the weather was hot some wind but nothing crazy. Then an early season storm started to form the south. Blas the second named storm of the season didn’t bring any bad weather but, the swells caused upwelling’s bringing the deep cold nutrient rich water to the surface which causes the algae to bloom turning the surface water cold and green and low on oxygen.
By mid week the bait was scattered as were most species of fish. The good news is the fish are still around just a little harder to find.



Fish Talk


Though the Dorado are not concentrated in any particular area they are good size avg 20-30 lbs. Slow trolling live baits or trolling small to medium size lures will allow you to cover more water. Chin weighted ballyhoos are a plus for sure.
With the cold water returning so has the yellowtail bite. It’s very uncommon to have yellowtail this late in the year but we’ll take it. AmberJacks are still cruising the seamounts. Some anglers are having success with these tanks but, mostly the Spearos are getting it done. Some of these jacks are running in the 50-60 lb class. Basically inshore bottom fishing on the seamounts and rock piles are producing nice fish. The top water Pelagic’s have slowed due to water conditions. We now have our 3rd name storm Celia. This storm is headed Northwest and will not threaten the peninsula at all. A few Stripers are being caught and released a little further out around the ElCharro bank. Most of these fish are tailing so it’s a site fishing approach with live Mackerel.
I guess it’s a wait and see this week whether tropical storm Celia brings in more cold water or not, it’s definitely more humid feels like late summer.
Anyway that’s all I have for the week, good but not spectacular.
Keep the faith
