La Paz Fishing Report / September 19th 2021


Weather & Bait

With Hurricane Olaf We’ll a stern, the big question was how did the storm effect fishing?

By Monday the water had settled down leaving some floating debris and a few degrees cooler. Neither one a bad thing. The bait didn’t seem

 

to be effected at all by the surge. The sardines are huge and for sale at Tecolote. Here’s the deal. If your looking for Dorado pick up sardines

 

at Tecolote, drive across the channel to El Moro. Slow troll the dines until you have 6-8 Bonito. This shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes. Cut

 

the Bonito into strips approximately 6” long. Pin these on a #2 circle hook and troll slowly looking for any fishy signs. Birds ,current lines, 

 

breezing bait and many times the strikes are just blind.

 

Fish Talk

Usually the Dorado are in pairs but many times they’re in schools of 8-10 fish. Since we are now later in the season the fish have had 

 

time to put on a few pounds, so 15-25 pounds are common.

 

Inshore fishing off the points or rocky areas are still giving up Pargo and cabrilla as well as trigger fish and large pacific Bonito. All are 

 

great eating and a blast on light tackle.

 

We had our first real encounter with tuna. Better late than never.

 

These fish are not on a wide open bite yet but they are here and by the kooks of things are starting to settle in. The fish we saw on 

 

Thursday were in the 20-30 kilo range rolling on the surface literally feet from the boat. A few were caught and a few broke off. This is 

 

exciting, finally they are here. We should see a lot more activity and better results in the weeks ahead.

 

Regarding the Bill fish action it’s just plug and play off the seamounts, El Bajo or El Charro or the East side of Cerralvo Island. The 

 

Striped Marlin aren’t huge but scrappy. The bigger guys should be moving in soon. Especially now the tuna are working their way up.

A Quick update, I took my family fishing Sunday morning. Bought bait at 7am by 8:15 we had out limits of Dorado to 20lbs, by 9am it 

 

was Bloody Mary’s on the patio. That’s a great family Sunday.

 

That’s it for the week.

 

The weather looks, good next week so hopefully even better things to come.

 

We still have a few open spots in October for the Mag bay multi day fishing trip. If you are interested please call the office.

 

 

 

 

Keep the faith,

 

Scotto.
