Tropical Storm Juliette Fails To Slow La Paz Fishing
“We had our second tropical storm in as many weeks, and although some parts of southern Baja took it in the nose, La Paz only got some strong winds, lots of clouds and some gentle rain and drizzle which muddied the roads and watered the plants,” related Jonathan Roldan of Tailhunter International.
“I always wonder how a storm will effect the fishing. Before the storm both our Tailhunter Las Arenas and our Tailhunter La Paz fleet had been deep into dorado ranging from 10-40 pounds with some days showing fast and easy limits with the voracious fish hammering the anglers. So, once the storm passed, there was a bit of trepidation,” said Roldan.
“As it turned out, the dorado stayed hungry and came to chew! Fishing picked up right where it left off with fish showing up in a wide variety of areas and ranging from just a few yards offshore near the bean to several miles in the channel. One of the cool things about storms is that they often wash a bunch of stuff out into the water. I’m talking about brush, trees, trash…all kinds of stuff. After the waters settle the debris is out there floating either by itself or along current lines. These become great fish attractors and working these current lines and floating debris can produce incredible results so, even if there are storms, there’s often a silver lining,” Roldan continued.Back To Reports
