TORTUGA PANGAS FISHING AT ISLA CERRALVO ON CALMER DAYS
Feb. 24, 2007, Tortuga Sport Fishing, Gerardo Hernandez, La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
This week, the La Paz fishing area had just a few good weather days, three days in which we were able to get out to the fishing zone at the north end of Isla Cerralvo for sardina baits.
There are good quantities of yellowtail, tuna, and pargo available in this fishing area when we are able to get out, that is, when there is no wind.
In the La Paz fishing area south of Isla Cerralvo, we have caught marlin and dorado in the last few days.
At Punta Perico, on the Baja shore at Las Arenas, our pangas caught yellowtail, dorado, and sierra.
The Humboldt giant squid have not been available in the last few days, due to winds, but we have caught large mackerel bait instead in the area close to Punta Perico.
Today, on Saturday, the wind is plenty strong at La Paz, and we were not able to get out to the preferred fishing areas.
La Paz weather has been in the 60s during the mornings and 70s later in the day.
Anglers fishing with Tortuga Sportfishing this week included Gil Lopez and John Slater of San Dimas, Calif., who had good yellowtail action, plus pargos and sierras, with Capt. Jorge Lucero.
