What a week to be fishing in La Paz. If you were lucky enough to be on the water with a fishing pole in hand then you most likely got a chance to pull on a big tuna. The 88 spot out of Punta Arena was the place to be. Large tuna ranging from 40 to well over 200 pounds could be seen boiling and even jumping out of the water like dolphin. They were feeding on small squid deep below but could be tempted to the surface with either sardines, zebras, caballitos or small dorado. Not only were their tuna but also dorado ranging from 20-45lbs hanging out at the buoys. Pangeros were either drift fishing or slow trolling bait. With the 88 spot being so great it was hard to go anywhere else but, the North end of Cerralvo Island and Punta Perico also proved successful competition. Many fisherman came back with catches of Snapper, Cabrilla and Dorado. Water temps are low to mid 80's and air temp is mid 90's and heating up. Pictures below include Treme, Chris and Cpt. Rigo with a 218lb tuna, Keith Gilmetti with a 42lb dorado, Neal Konami with a pargo, Pete Teichmann with a 45lb dorado and Phil and Terri Schenck with a 80lb tuna.
