GREEN WATERS AND SCATTERED MAHI FOUND ON NORTH SIDE
Sept. 17, 2004, Artie Davis, Black Magic Sportfishing, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Fleet Report:
Fished a few days this past week and had decent action. The last storm that pushed through really turned the water over and it really hasn't cleaned up. El Bajo, el Charro, La Reina, and the Cerralvo channel was all pretty green with a few scattered mahi-mahi (also "dorado" in Spanish) to be found.
The volume of billfish that we were doing so well on at La Paz seemed to have moved onward, haven't seen but a few sailfish here on this side. We did run a few longer La Paz fishing trips this past week.
We did an overnighter to las Animas and San Jose Island and really took a pounding weather wise. Water was a little off color there too, but a very warm 87 degrees. We did catch a few BIG dorado, but spent most of the time dodging the elements.
We also ran a 2 day trip and went down to the south end of Cerralvo and caught a handful of striped marlin, a lot of smaller dorado, and very good wahoo fishing early in the a.m. The water there was beautiful blue and about 84 to 86 degrees.
