Gerardo Hernandez of Tortuga Sportfishing at La Paz said north winds blew early in the week but didn't stop the very good south side yellowtail run near Punta Perico. "The wind hasn't slowed the fishing down," Hernandez said.
"The whole area around Punta Perico and Isla Cerralvo is covered with yellowtail and sardina bait. The beaches are very busy and anglers are happy to stay in the good action there. We have no need to go farther out. The fishing is good right here. We invite all anglers to come and try this good fishing right now at La Paz."
