A SCRATCHY FISHING WEEK FOR LA PAZ CHARTER BOATS
July 9, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
It's sure was not great fishing here at La Paz this past week. There were some highlights, but for the most part it was scratchy fishing brought on by winds that came up and messed up the bait, the bite, the currents and a lot of otherwise good fishing that seemed like it was just about to take off.
There had been a tropical storm off Southern Baja earlier in the week that petered out, but it left its mark on us. The wahoo bite dropped. The dorado and marlin got lockjaw.
They were there to be seen, but gave a cold shoulder to much of the offerings. Even the reliable bonito and pargo went to ground. It was the toughest week so far of the season in the La Paz fishing vacation area.
