FEW VACATIONERS, BUT FISHING STEADY FOR TUNA AND MIXED SPECIES
Dec. 25-30, 2005, Dos Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Mexico Sportfishing Report:
We've got some good fishing news from La Paz. The weather has improved daily, although we still feel a little wind coming from the north. This has not been a problem for sportfishing. As we know, this season is a little slow for vacation tourism, but not for the fishing.
Yesterday, on Dec. 30th, Capt. Enrique Sanchez and his sons, guided by Capt. Rigo L. enjoyed a wonderful day of fishing and they caught a lot of sierra, dorado, and two yellowfin tuna of 42 and 60 pounds. These fish were caught 8 miles off Punta Perico. The fishing day started out well, arriving at the buoys in this area, and they caught a dorado of 15 pounds and lost two others. They decided to look for sierra south of Isla Cerralvo, and they caught six of them.
The 60-pound tuna was caught by Capt. Enrique Sanchez and the 42 pounder by his son Enrique Sanchez Jr. They had a great day of fishing.
