EARLY CHANGE OF SEASONS BRINGS VARIETY OF SPECIES

Seasons have definitely changed down here!   Perhaps sooner than we had expected as air temperatures are dropping and water temperatures are also diminishing with more breezy and windy conditions.  It’s a really nice time to be in La Paz!  But, it has surely affected our fishing.  Not a bad thing.  It’s just different.
It seems that in the span of 2 weeks we went from having 90 percent of our catch being dorado which are warm-water species to a nice mix of a number of species.  We’re still getting dorado every day, but I counted as many as 10 different species taken as well on any given day.
For example one day among a half-dozen of our pangas they reported:  dorado, sailfish, marlin, pompano, jack crevalle, wahoo, roosterfish, bonito, pargo, cabrilla and rainbow runners!  It made for some great fun fishing.  Quite a smorgasbord of species and lots of action.  One day, one panga got 4 wahoo.  Another with 2 of our flyfishers got over 20 roosterfish caught and released!  Another had fun throwing surface poppers on light tackle at dorado.  Another with first timers were thrilled to catch and release their first sailfish!
Most of our fishing now is with our Tailhunter Las Arenas fleet.  The waters north of La Paz are getting pretty choppy and the fish are a bit of a run around the corner to Las Cruces area.  If folks want to go, we warn them it could get bumpy. Also, as mentioned above, there’s just not that many dorado around which is the main catch of our La Paz fleet this past season.  So, right now, unless someone says something, most of our fishing is with our Las Arenas fleet.  Fishing is closer.  There’s more species and it’s just a bit more protected from the winds that will surely get stronger as we head towards the end of the year.  For now, fishing is pretty good.
That’s our story!
