MANY STRIPED MARLIN CONCENTRATED IN LOCAL FISHING WATERS
July 24, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
I thought we were going to be in a bit of trouble early in the week in the La Paz vacation fishing area, as we watched a tropical depression come up the Baja and we worried it would turn into a hurricane. However, it veered off into the Pacific and only gave us some wind, as most of them do, with nary a drop of rain.
I was also worried that the full moon would throw fishing off, but as in the past few months, some of our best fishing has been under the big moon!
Dorado and marlin were the main players again. I have never seen so many marlin in one season with mostly striped marlin swimming around but also larger blues and blacks. Dorado fishing has been pretty consistent now for over a week at La Paz, with the larger bulls now pretty common. There's a jag of wahoo on the El Bajo seamount and we still have a good run of pargo not too far out of the bay, as well as over by the islands.
