Gerardo Hernandez of Tortuga Sportfishing at La Paz reported improved action during the week following a slow period for boats running out to Isla Cerralvo. La Paz fishing area weather was hot with light scattered rains in some areas.
"Our fishing is better for dorado, small and medium-sized tuna, and quality wahoo," Hernandez said. "We're also catching striped marlin of 80 to 100 pounds, which we are releasing. Our fly fishing clients are hooking up roosterfish. We're catching fish at Isla Cerralvo, Punta Perico, and Las Arenas."
