BIG CONCENTRATIONS OF BAIT PRESENT FOR FISHING BOATS AT ISLA CERRALVO
May 21, 2005, Dos Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
The weather really improved this week, with calm water except for a little light breeze from the west in the mornings that gave us no problems when fishing. Little by little, the water temperature has started to change, and with it the La Paz fishing will improve in the coming days.
We have a huge amount of bait at Isla Cerralvo, around the south end of the island, and we are catching beautiful examples of snappers, including a 40 pounder caught by Ken J. and Cirio Alvarez, who fished with Capt. Nufo. Eddie and Jerry caught a very nice amberjack while fishing with Capt. Hugo, and Gene Ho and his fishing partner Pepe caught a pargo colmilludo of about 35 pounds with Capt. Rigo, plus cabrilla, dog snapper, roosterfish, and other species.
This week, dorado and tuna fishing has been scattered, perhaps because of the water temperature. On Thursday, we caught some wahoo around the south end of Isla Cerralvo, and many snappers are being seen at Punta Perico, offering a good variety of fishing with our captains.
