MAHI-MAHI BITE IS THE BEST OF THE SEASON
Nov. 28, 2004, Artie Davis, Black Magic Sportfishing, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
Fishing remains absolutely red hot here in the La Paz vacation area. The dorado continue to bite better than they have all season, with easy limits found everyday. All mahi-mahi (also "dorado" in Spanish) are pretty much in the same location, that southeast corner of Espiritu Santo Island, where they have been for over a month now.
As the weeks go by, the La Paz fish seem to have gotten bigger. Yesterday we had limits for three anglers and didn't get a fish under 25 pounds, with the biggest tipping the scales at 54 pounds.
There still are the smaller ones around. However, we have been only trolling the micro skipjack that are found in the same area and our grade of fish has obviously gotten much better.
Our best day of the week saw us catch and release over 20 fish. There really isn't a need to go much further than the island, but one day we ventured to La Paz's El Bajo area and found perfect conditions and a school of wahoo that wanted to cooperate. We ended up with seven wahoo, a nice sailfish, and a few pargo on the bank in about two hours of fishing time. La Paz fishing weather has been a bit breezy, but definitely fishable, and air temps are a perfect 75 to 80 degrees. Water temps are holding at around 75 degrees in our La Paz fishing areas.
