LAS ARENAS FISHING WATER COLOR REVERTS TO GREENISH
July 23, 2005, Dos Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
Fishing has not changed significantly at Las Arenas during the past few days. At the moment we are not seeing dorado and tuna at the buoys in big numbers, but we are catching some of them there. Tuna were caught while fishing around schools of porpoise around the buoys only one day this week.
The fishing water around Las Arenas has returned to a green color, indicating conditions and water temperatures too low for these species. For the moment, we've been catching blue and striped marlin, as well as some sailfish, around the south point of Isla Cerralvo, to a weight of 100 to 200 pounds.
We are using sardinas, halfbeaks, and green jacks for bait for these fish, and also lures in strong colors and large sizes.
During these last few days, July 23 and 24, we have also caught some wahoo of about 35 pounds in weight at the south end of the island. Wahoo were caught by our friends Dennis Gammer and his group from Los Angeles. We are hoping for better fishing news from Las Arenas in the next few days.
