BOATS FIND FAIR ACTION
April 18, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
It wasn't a spectacular week, but fishing at La Paz was decent. With more or less beautiful conditions, there was quite a variety of fish caught. It was just difficult to predict which fish would hit where and whether Las Arenas or La Paz fishing would be better.
Much of the fishing was dictated by whether winds rose up and turned the waters choppy.
With water conditions still hitting about 70 degrees on the surface, La Paz fishing area anglers ran into more dorado this week although it's far from outstanding fishing with cabrilla, large roosterfish and snapper also in the mix. It was hardly frenzied fishing, but it wasn't terrifically bad either.
Nevertheless, it was the variety of fish caught at La Paz that was remarkable. This was especially evident this week where no predominant species bit, but fish boxes were marked by their variety.
This past week, on any given day, we had striped marlin, dog-tooth snapper, pargo colorado, African pompano, bonito, skipjack, yellowtail, yellow snapper, dorado, roosterfish, mako shark, sierra, one tuna, cabrilla, and amberjack. On most days I counted 6 to 12 different species coming off the La Paz fishing boats.
