MIXED SPECIES SPORTFISHING ACTION AT ISLA CERRALVO
July 31, 2005, Dos Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
Fishing on the Las Arenas side saw some changes last week. From Tuesday to Friday, the weather was cloudy and rainy during most of the day, but we were still able to go fishing. We had various groups fishing from Los Angeles, Pasadena, Long Beach, and Huntington Beach, and they had some great fishing days.
Dennis Gammer's group fished three days and caught wahoo, pargo liso, pargo colmilludo, and dorado. These species were caught in different areas. The wahoo, pargo liso and pargo colmilludo were caught at the south point of Isla Cerralvo, and during this period we caught our first dorado from the north side of the island.
Around Las Cruces, our captains found a lot of sargassum weed and there they caught a beautiful 49-pound dorado for Tom Teichmann of Los Angeles, who fished with Capt. Rigo L.
Four wahoo were also caught by Dennis Gammer with Capt. Hugo L. The Teichmann group, Pete, Crissy, Tom, and their friends, caught dorado, wahoo, and marlin.
The sargassum weed is moving southwards toward Isla Cerralvo, and we are expecting a lot more fish in the area for our clients.
Although we have not seen tuna schools, we hope to find some soon.
