VERY GOOD DORADO FISHING OFF ISLA ESPIRITU SANTO
Sept. 16, 2006, Jonathan Roldan, Tailhunter International, La Paz, Mexico:
I better get this fishing report out before we lose power again. La Paz is still waiting for the next round of tropical storm to come visit. Hurricane Lane should be milder than the last one, but it's already raining this morning at Las Arenas at 5 am. and by tonight, La Paz should be getting wet.
People are already more savvy this time, stocking up on tape for windows, batteries, gas, water, etc. The bad thing is that this is Mexican Independence Weekend and the whole town started partying last night. Even now at 6 a.m. I can still hear fireworks going off downtown. Three days of party! Here's the La Paz fishing report.
This was maybe one of the best weeks of fishing at La Paz this entire season and we've had some great weeks.
On the La Paz side, the fishing was for steady limits of dorado and most of them were huge bulls. Fishing on both the east and west sides of Espiritu Santo Island near the gap and working the current and debris lines, we had an incredible number of 40 to 60 pound dorado, weighed on the scales.
For Las Arenas side fishing, limits of tuna came up late in the week where anglers were pulling away from too many boiling fish. These tuna were a better grade of fish with most in the 20 to 40 pound class size.
