WINDS AND SPOTTY FISHING HAMPER LOCAL PANGAS
April 24, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
La Paz had variable fishing conditions all week with seemingly a lot more wind on the La Paz side that kept us guessing on where to fish.
In between bouts of wind, La Paz sportfishing action produced a few dorado, some yellowtail, but most remarkably some huge cabrilla and scattered snapper.
On the Las Arenas side, the fishing weather was flatter, but again, it was one of those weeks with a little of this and a little of that. Pargo held everyone's attention close to Perico and at Pilis, but some days it was more fishing than catching although schools of the fish would be crashing all around the boats in shallow water.
Cabrilla were anywhere structure could be found and every now and then, schools of sierra would sweep in the sever a lot of lines. There's more dorado and roosters to the fishing areas to the south, but it can be hit or miss. If you put in the time at the rail you get the fish, but you have to put in the effort.
