SOUTHERN WINDS AFFECTING SPORTFISHING PANGAS
Oct. 9, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
I was really worried that after Hurricane Otis last weekend La Paz fishing would be really off. It wasn't. It was not bad, but it wasn't off.
The biggest problem was the southern winds that kept up all week really making it more of an endurance test to be out on the water and seems to have certainly affected the fish.
One day the fishing could be red hot and the next it was scratchy, a cycle that drove us crazy.
The dorado bite on the La Paz side was fairly constant with a few more bulls caught and some marlin, but you had to work at it.
Same with that great tuna bite for our Las Arenas boats. One day it would be easy limits and the next day, the boats grit their teeth to get only 1 or 2 fish each, although the conditions seemed ideal. Still, giant squid and some of the big pargo kept folks interested. Bait on both sides has been difficult.
