Gerardo Hernandez of Tortuga Sportfishing reported south side La Paz fishing weather in the high-80s, with water temperatures of 76 to 78 degrees at Isla Cerralvo and also at Las Arenas and Punta Perico on the Baja shore. "This week, we are now in the hot weather season," Hernandez said. Tortuga Sportfishing pangas at the offshore buoys found good numbers of dorado of 25 to 35 pounds plus many marlin mixed with sailfish. "We're releasing as many sailfish as marlin," Hernandez said. "Pangas fishing nearby areas brought in pargos of 20 to 35 pounds." Live bait was available in all fishing areas in seas that were completely calm at times. Anglers fishing on Tortuga pangas out of Ensenada de los Muertos included Tom Wong of Taiwan, his son Jerry Wong of Rowland Heights, Calif., and Don Rockefeller of Huntington Beach, Calif.
