As scheduled La Paz has opened up again as of today. A welcome relief to all here in Baja California. Baja Pirates has also resumed business as of today but we need bookings if we are to survive this pandemic. As of today flights to Cabo are being run non stop daily from Los Angeles, San Diego, and Houston.  The present airline schedules will open up direct flights To Cabo from Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and San Jose on Monday June 22nd.  Flights are presently scheduled with no more than 60% occupancy and are very well managed. At the airport in Cabo they are covid monitoring all passengers upon arrival and the protocols in Mexico are very similar to the US only in Mexico these rules are enforced. Masks are required just as in California.
 
The really good news is the fishing report. There's fish and bait everywhere and no fishing pressure whatsoever.  So the report is WFO today! The question is what do you want fish for? Dorado are thick as fleas in the bay. Huge grouper and Snappers are being caught at the local seamounts. Tuna showing up all around Cerralvo island. Marlin seen jumping all over in the channel. The next few months is going to be epic fishing here in La Paz.  Today we went out and tested the waters and here is our results:

 

04/15/20

The first photos of clients have arrived and this one shows two happy guests with their bags packed with 27# of cleaned and frozen dorado.  We have had several groups fishing ahead of them who didn't want us to take photos and we missed the opportunity to take these two guys' catch before they were cleaned.  We will try harder to take ane show more of clients catch in the future Like the USA, La Paz is now under a shelter in place order.  Casinos, restaurants, harbors and all public gatherings are closed or prohibited.  The good thing is the virus has been slow in showing up here in southern Baja, lets hope that continues.

These new restriction and the spring winds have kept almost everyone on land.  A few pangueros havee been out subsistence fishing and yes the reports is good to excellent for Yellowtaim, Snappers and Cabrilla. Bait is plentiful and fishermen are sarce.  Now we just need to get back out there, although it looks like it will be June before we can retune to normal operations.  at the moment we are scheduling our clients into the summer and fall season.  We wish you all good health and happiness thru these trying times.  The good news is fish don't get or carry the covid!

2020 Season Starter Report

The Baja Pirates fleet has been working this month preparing boats and gear for the spring season here in La Paz. Part of this preparation includes fish scouting trips when the wind settles. Last week Captain Luis and Captain Rico were out checking on bait and water conditions and the news is good. They found sardines, green mackerel and cosineros were in abundance within a few miles of our dock. Of course they couldn't resist a little fishing in the channel. They caught several nice 12 pound Dorados and chased a Marlin who was so full of bait he just wouldn't bite. Good signs this early so close to Pinchelinque and during a full moon phase. 

Water temperatures are in the low seventies which is normal and the water is fairly clean. Outside air temps are in the mid 50's at night with pleasant daytime temps in the mid to upper 70's. In the next few weeks we will begin looking for the yellowtail and big snappers we are known for.
 
Whale shark trips here in La Paz have also been very good so far this year. There are several big sisters inside the bay and a couple of calfs with them. These fish are awesome and have provided quite a show for our whale shark clients. Everyone who has been out see them has returned tired as the calfs swim much faster and require some effort to keep up with. The Gray whale migration in Lopez Mateo is now in full swing. The whale numbers are down for the early season but we are all hoping more will arrive next week.
 
Reports from Las Arenas are mixed. Early February provided some excellent fishing for snappers, sierras and smaller sized yellowtail although the full moon seems to have slowed the action this past week.
 
On a final note there appears to be a new 360 peso "ecology tax" now being collected at the Los Cabos airport upon departure. Presently this is being called a voluntary tax and Captain Rico will check it out next week on his return to the USA. We will update you on this soon, so until then,
 
Tight lines mi Amigos y Amigas
