BAIT SCARCE FOR BOATS FISHING FOR TUNA AT LAS ARENAS
Sept. 11, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
The good fishing news is yellowfin tuna at Las Arenas. The bad news is, tough to get bait!
However, it's been a long time since I've had fishing clients say, "I don't want to catch anymore tuna! No mas!"
That's a good thing to hear. I have no idea how long they will stay, but I'm just glad it turned out because earlier in the week our fishing boats on the La Paz side really hit a dip in the bite so we moved a lot of our clients over to fish Las Arenas instead.
Bait isn't impossible, but you have to work at it.
Dorado were also a nice icing as well. La Paz fishing did pick up as the week went on with better dorado and marlin fishing, but the bite is scattered.
