SOME WAHOO SEEN AT SOUTH TIP OF ISLA CERRALVO
March 12, 2005, Gerardo Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
This past week's changes in our La Paz fishing vacation area and weather have been incredible. La Paz weather these days has been a little cool in the mornings and hot at midday, with with no temperature more than about 82 degrees. Today, Saturday, began with excellent weather, but then a northeast wind began to blow, springing up for only one hour. This was not a problem for the fishermen at Los Piles behind the island, and so we began catching bait which is now found in this area.
In La Paz fishing action this week, our friends Pete and Chris of Huntington Beach had an excellent day and were able to catch two dorado, while their companion Justin caught a yellowtail, while they were fishing south of Ensenada de los Muertos in the area known as Boca del Alamo.
Today, Capt. Rigo told me that the fishing around Punta Perico is improving, and he is seeing small schools of pargo, dorado, and cabrilla. Fishing is improving and is providing anglers with a variety of species.
In fishing at the south point of Isla Cerralvo, we are still seeing some wahoo feeding on bait. During the past few days, we've been visited by quite a few whales around the island also, and around Ensenada de los Muertos, making another spectacle and a beautiful day of fishing at La Paz.
