TORTUGA'S PANGAS SWITCH TO SOUTHERN FISHING LOCATIONS DUE TO NORTH WINDS
Oct. 21, 2006, Gerardo Hernandez, Tortuga Sportfishing, La Paz, Mexico:
This week we felt the change of the seasons in our fishing area of La Paz. We had winds from the north and falling air temperatures reaching a maximum of 90 degrees.
The fishing at the beginning of the week for our boats was around the area of Las Cruces, with good results for dorado to 40 pounds, and some yellowfin tuna of 15 to 25 pounds also caught around the south end of Isla Cerralvo.
However, this weekend, it has not been possible to keep fishing for these large dorado at Las Cruces because of the north winds. These winds have not stopped us from fishing around Ensenada de los Muertos, Punta Perico, and areas close to El Sargento, where we are catching sierra and some medium sized dorado.
This week we had various groups fishing with us several days, including Larry Klein and his son Burt Klein, and the brothers Gustavo and Claudio Beltran. Larry Klein's group had very good fishing several days for dorado and tuna.
Jim and Diane Wisda of Tucson, Arizona, also caught a very nice dorado of 42 pounds while fishing with Capt. Jorge Lucero.
