La Paz Fishing

The Sportfishing charters off Las Arenas, which are rich with game fish, can be booked directly through the hotel at the reception desk.

The waters surrounding La Paz offer some of the most prolific fishing on the Peninsula. In past years, La Paz was seldom visited except by a few campers with cartop boats and seasonal commercial fishermen. Quickly, the word is getting out that here may well be the best variety of gamefish available anywhere in the Sea of Cortez.

"Here the concept of fishing from skiffs really comes into its own. Extensive boulder-strewn and sandy shallows form ideal habitat for large numbers of roosterfish, plus plenty of pargo and cabrilla. The channel between La Paz and Isla Cerralvo is a well-used pathway for migrating pelagics. It is not unusual for dorado or wahoo to appear close to shore. Acrobatic robalo and speedy toro ripping up light tackle and roosterfish grabbing bait within 100 feet of shore, with huge pargo colorado and cabrilla, to 8 pounds pounding scampi tails from the rocks."
