Young La Paz visitor has golden touch when it comes to grouper fishing
Congrats to San Diego's Cole Chavira for catching this beautiful golden grouper while aboard a Tailhunter International excursion north of La Paz near Espiritu Santo Island. Chavira was wise enough to release his prize, as many consider it to be bad luck to keep and eat the rare goldens.
His father Mitch, not to be outdone, was yo-yo-ing a blue-and-white iron when he hooked the large amberjack pictured below. Jonathan Roldan of Tailhunter says the big jacks, which can weigh up to 100 pounds, are on the high spots now. They're just a few species cooperating for springtime visitors to the beautiful La Paz region of Baja California Sur.
