DORADO FISHING SPORADIC IN STEADY MIXED SPECIES BITE
June 5, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
Flurries of winds still make it seem like spring at La Paz, instead of the summer conditions I expected by now, with similar results in the fishing.
There's still no one great species that's dominating, with both cooler water and warm water species mixing it up. Some days it's scratchy and the next the fish come up and whack.
Huge schools of giant 15 pound bonito provide a lot of action as well as jags of 30 pound amberjack, cabrilla, pargo, roosters and yellowtail.
Dorado have been sporadic in the La Paz sportfishing area, as have been the marlin and sails, but we probably had the best wahoo bite of the season early in the week with several days of multiple wahoo hookups by the anglers, with Gregg Watt of Lake Forrest taking 5 skinnies in two days including a 61 pounder.
