BIG NUMBERS OF PARGO LISO AT PUNTA PERICO
April 9, 2005, Dos Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
Las Arenas, La Paz fishing conditions have begun to change, with air temperatures reaching 86 degrees during the day, and going down to 59 degrees at night.
This is helping to improve the fishing day by day at La paz. As we have had for many weeks, we continue to enjoy a big supply of sardina bait on the back side of Isla Cerralvo, and this is not changing.
We are seeing a large number of pargo liso in the La Paz sportfishing area known at Punta Perico, around the Hotel las Arenas. Our Capt. Rigo has also reported seeing the first yellowfin tuna, swimming inside schools of porpoise, and he was able to catch some with Rapalas trolled inside the schools around the buoys. This fishing area is located about 5 miles off Punta Perico.
Also, there is a big concentration of marlin in this same area.
At this time, we are fishing in our La Paz vacation areas with different types of baits for the different species available, sardinas for the pargos, caballitos and agujita azul, or halfbeaks, for the dorado, and also cocineros or green jacks for the marlin.
While fishing in the area of Boca del Alamo, to the south of Ensenada de los Muertos, we are seeing more schools of porpoise with tuna around them. The fishing is improving at La Paz, and we are looking forward to all of our guests enjoying an exciting visit.
