PANGAS MOVED TO WINTER LAUNCH BEACH AT ENSENADA DE LOS MUERTOS
Oct. 15, 2006, Gerardo Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, Las Arenas, La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
We had some changes in the weather in our fishing area this week. The high air temperatures began to decline, and we had daily high temperatures of about 90 degrees. And we had some winds from the west also, in the mornings, in the areas around Bahia de Sueños, or Ensenada de los Muertos, and around Punta Arena de la Ventana.
This week, we moved our pangas from Punta Arena de la Ventana to launch them instead on the south side of the point in the sheltered area of Bahia de los Sueños for the rest of the fall and winter months. This area is more sheltered from north winds.
The best fishing for dorado in recent days has been found in the area north of Las Cruces. These dorado are of 30 to 45 pounds.
Since the yellowfin tuna have scattered in recent days, and so have the Humboldt giant squid, the fishermen have targeted the fishing for smaller tuna.
There has also been plenty of action on barrilete to keep everybody tired in recent days.
There are also smaller dorado, about 15 to 25 pounds, in the area around San Isidro to the south of Ensenada de los Muertos, and we also have sailfish jumping in this area.
This week we had the group of Tony Wong, Martin Feinmark, Cirio Alvarez, and Mel Shiota fishing several days with us and they came in daily with good dorado with Tortuga's Capts. Hugo and Nufo.
