The Trip

La Paz is a mecca for sport fishermen.   We had been there before, so we were anxious to head back and get some fishing time.  We stayed at Los Arcos hotel in La Paz.  We caught a ton of fish after we got the correct bait.

Commercial fishermen.  They sold us giant squid for bait.  It really works for tuna.

This bad boy broke the fishing line.

This pelican swallowed the tail of the tuna whole.  Note the protuberance in the throat.

Vases in the anteroom of the lobby.

This was a great trip with plenty of fish to bring home.  Sadly, my father was not able to come with us, but we did do a trip the following year.
