SUPER PANGAS AND CRUISERS CATCHING MAHI-MAHI
Dec. 4, 2004, Luis Lopez, Cortez Club, La Paz, Mexico Fishing and Diving Report:
First, I would like to send a greeting from the not so cold city of La Paz, or at least not as cold as your city.
The weather is a big help to us, although as you know, the seasonal winter winds are sometimes strong, and sometimes it doesn't give us the chance to take our clients to where the fishing action is.
Fortunately, we've had some very good days, and some when we had good fishing, noting that this week we had only 10 super pangas and four cruisers go out. Dorado fishing continues to be good. Each time our boats went out, they came back with five or six mahi-mahi (also "dorado" in Spanish) each, in acceptable sizes.
The weather up to now has been 68 degrees at night and in the morning, and the water temperature has gone down quite a bit. It is about 68 degrees, with 30 to 50 feet of visibility.
The fishing area where we are catching the dorado is around the southern part of La Paz' Isla Espiritu Santo, about three miles off Playa Bonanza and in front of the morro lighthouse.
