DISTANT STORMS STIR UP LOCAL FISHING WATERS
La Paz, Mexico Fishing, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, Sept. 4, 2004:
I guess we were due for an off-week. When La Paz weather permitted, there were fish to be caught for our Las Arenas as well as our La Paz boats, but even when you could fish, I wouldn't say it was the most comfortable experience out there.
Fortunately, we didn't have too many fishermen out on the days when La Paz weather was unfriendly. It was a good week for us not to have too many fishermen on the schedule.
Hurricane Howard was far to the south, but let's just say it had "long arms" which brought swells, clouds, occasional hard rain and wind at times interrupted by sunshine.
It was kinda funny because the rain was spotty. One boat could be getting drenched and 100 yards away, another boat would be in complete sunshine watching their amigos getting soaked!
However, we still got some fish with tuna and dorado from Perrico to Punta Pescadero at Arenas and, for our La Paz fishing boats, the most productive area was north of Cerralvo Island to the Charro Bank.
La Paz tuna have been 5 - 25 pounds and some larger fish up to 100 pounds outside and to the south. La Paz dorado have been mostly the 10 pound size with always some larger bulls everyday in between.
