Gerardo Hernandez of Tortuga Sportfishing said his charter pangas fishing on the Las Arenas side south of La Paz had some cloudy mornings but without rain during the week and found good numbers of dorado of 30 to 40 pounds on buoys about 15 miles out. "We also found large dorado out at the 88 bank, and smaller ones of 15 to 25 pounds north of Punta Arena de la Ventana," Hernandez said. Black skipjack and small greenjack or cocineros in Spanish were being used for bait at the offshore buoys. "We are finding these baits right at the buoys so we can start fishing early," Hernandez said. "For fishing close to Isla Cerralvo, we're using sardina baits that we find in that area, and we're still catching snappers there, but they are smaller now."
