JONATHAN ROLDAN'S WEEKLY FISHING REPORT
April 10, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
La Paz some windy fishing days this week but waters were still fishable. Spring looks like it's here, with warming waters in our La Paz sportfishing areas, and skies and more pelagic species showing up although now just willing to bite sometimes.
We're seeing more marlin around La Paz. In fact, they have been on the surface especially around Cerralvo Island, but have been so lethargic that it's almost possible to run them over with the pangas. A few have been hooked, but they're really lazy at the moment.
More dorado were caught at La Paz as well. Nothing big, but it's a good sign.
The biggest news was the yellowtail bite at the north end of Cerralvo. La Reyna had the quantity with 10-20 pounders, but La Reynita just to the south had the quality with fish up to 30-50 pounds. It wasn't wide open and not everyday, but for anyone who fished the spots for several days, they did fine. Closer to shore some big cabrilla up to 20 pounds were caught and roosters were still entertaining up along our La Paz fishing beaches.
