LAS ARENAS FISHING BOATS FIND WIND SHELTER AT PUNTA PERICO
Dec. 4, 2005, Dos Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
After a period of calm weather, north winds returned last week to the Las Arenas fishing area at Punta Perico, as is common during this season of the year. These winds occurred from Nov. 27 to Nov. 29, but they did not affect our fishing, and our boats caught dorado, including angler John McBay from Los Angeles, who fished with Capt. Rigo L., and caught nine dorados in his two days of fishing. His dorado included two 25 pounders, and the rest were about 15 pounds.
Due to seas reaching 3 feet in height, we fished the area around Punta Perico, where buoys are found. We also found bait in this area, and so we did not have to travel far for it.
We also are seeing marlin and sailfish in this same area, for anybody who wants to fish for them.
On some days, we also caught tuna of good sizes, to about 25 pounds, but during the past three days we have not caught any more. But, as we know, every fishing day is different, and we're hoping they return in the next few days.
Little by little, we are also catching more sierra, around Barco Varado, although we haven't fished there in the last few days, due to wind, which has kept us close to Punta Perico.
Our Capt. Nufo G. also reports that he is seeing a good number of pargo liso around Punta Perico, and so we are able to offer a variety of types of fishing for our anglers.
