DORADO BITING BETWEEN CERRALVO ISLAND AND EAST CAPE
Dec. 11, 2005, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico Fishing Report:
If it weren't for the fishing windy conditions, you'd have almost thought it was summer at La Paz again as a nice jag of dorado came up and whacked boats basically from south of Cerralvo Island almost down to the East Cape with good concentrations just inside of Muertos Bay, Cardonal and Boca del Alamo.
It's a good thing the fish were in close or at least around the buoys because it was whipping kinda hard earlier in the week and La Paz sport fishing boats had to hug the shore.
The wind calmed down as the fishing week went on, but what a nice dorado bite. Quite a few limits were caught, although there were not many big fish.
Still for December, guys expecting to catch cabrilla and sierra were treated with mahi steaks instead. Additionally, with so many dorado inside, I guess it wasn't to surprising that striped marlin also came prowling. None of our boats hooked one. Several of the other pangas were working fish, but it looks like most broke off.
