Gerardo Hernandez of Tortuga Sportfishing reported a week of windy and cloudy conditions for his charter pangas fishing the Las Arenas area south of La Paz, at Punta Arena de la Ventana, and also at the offshore buoys when winds permitted. "We had less action for dorado this week due to problems reaching the buoys," Hernandez said. "But we still caught pargos around Isla Cerralvo and fishing on Wednesday was good for larger dorado at the buoys, although few pangas went out to fish for them. Most pangas are fishing the south end of Isla Cerralvo and finding some wahoo and pompano also. Fishing conditions are improving and we are feeling summer temperatures in the 90s." Sardina baits continued in adequate supply in the southern La Paz fishing area.
