NOT TOO MANY FISHERMEN PRESENT IN THE LOCAL AREA
Oct. 9, 2004, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing:
Sure are a lot of fishermen in the La Paz fishing vacation area right now. No doubt anticipating our full moon this week and a chance to get in on this fall bite that seems to be holding pretty nicely. Good variety of species in the water with dorado being the "bread and butter" fish for both the Las Arenas and La Paz fishing fleets.
In fact, some days dorado fishing has been darned great! However, spots of wahoo keep showing up as well as tuna although most are footballs which quickly get attention.
There are several niced spots of larger fish that poke their heads out and foam getting everyone all excited, but when the boats jump them, they duck out! Additionally, for anyone coming down and fishing Las Arenas, the bigger squid seem to come up every few days. Great for bait and great to eat!
Water temps are in the high 70's to low 80's. Air in the 80's.
