YELLOWFIN TUNA LEAD GOOD AUGUST FISHING ACTION
Aug. 28, 2004, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
Feeling a bit like a happy broken record! This might just be the best August in several seasons. Football yellowfin tuna mixed with dorado, sailfish and marlin for our Las Arenas boats for the past month have kept most everyone happy!
Can't complain although the bite has largely moved south towards Punta Pescadero which is OK since we pick up bait along the way. If you wanted a shot at a Grand Slam (3 pelagic species) in a day, it's not impossible right now!
In addition to those fish, we still have wahoo at the island and some deep pargo there as well.
For our La Paz fishing boats, the bite has been mostly dorado. Had a bit of bumpy weather late in the week from southern storms, but everyone still got into fish.
Not much change for our La Paz sportfishing boats. Routine has settled down...get bait...put out the trolling lines. Look for weeds and/or current breaks or hope for a blind strike. Get hooked up. Throw baits. Keep one hooked fish in the water near the boat. Hope his buddies show up! There's still some bigger bulls around La Paz so don't get complacent. Some of our anglers have been spicing it up a bit with some decent snapper and pargo fishing off the rocks near Balandra Bay and near the islands.
