SPORTFISHING ACTION BEST INSHORE AROUND LAS ARENAS
May 22, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
Honestly, fishing at La Paz was a bit of a pick bite all week. It sure got warmer down here but winds picked up a tad as well. There were fish to be caught, but it seems like we're right on the edge of breaking out. Most of the fishing was inshore with the Las Arenas/Muertos fishing being the better.
Variety was still the name of the game with nothing wide open, but chances at numerous species. We had a marlin or two this week; several wahoo; pargo lisa, dog tooth snapper, yellow snapper; pargo mulato; cabrilla, sierra and more of those big roosterfish running 30 to 70 pounds.
There were a few dorado around as well. I think the biggest problem for the Las Arenas boats is having to run all the way up the island to get bait, which limits heading south to check out some of the warmer water. Water temperatures are up around 79 degrees now in the La Paz sportfishing area.
