EAST CAPE
 
IN GENERAL:  With tropical storms swirling out to the west several  
hundred miles to the south, the dorado and tuna just kept on coming.  
Both are spread up and down the coast close enough to allow for a second  
cup of coffee before heading out. It is that time of year when part of  
the locals’ morning routine is to check their favorite internet weather  
site to make sure everything is copasetic. There was a little rain and  
some wind in the PM, but not enough to put a damper on the continuing  
tuna/dorado snap.

August 29, Full; Sept. 6 Last Quarter; Sep. 14 New; Sept. 21, First Quarter
 
+ OFFSHORE: Mid-morning after a romp with the tuna and dorado, you can  
produce some exciting action for sails.
 
+ INSHORE:  The only thing that has changed this week is that the tuna  
and dorado are a bit fatter. Still close to shore and spread out enough  
to give the flyrodder a chance.
 
+ BEACH: Lots of variety this week: jacks, lookdowns, ladyfish, pompano  
and small roosters with an occasional Bubba showing up
 
BILLFISH – Nothing like what looks like a jailbreak of sails chasing  
every teaser behind the boat to have anglers bumping into each other  
trying to get to their 12-weight.
 
YELLOWFIN TUNA – Fatter fish this week, with lots of 10-weight  
candidates and a few 12-weights as well.
 
DORADO – Same deal with the dorado, bigger; someone must be spiking the  
sardina.
 
ROOSTERFISH\JACK CREVALLE – Olive Clousers are working for us with a  
slow, abrupt, retrieve.
 
BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK – Plenty of schools feeding on the surface  
from Rancho Leonero to Punta Colorada.
 
PARGO AND CABRILLA – Look for the dark shadows on open sand beaches.  
Bounce that Clouser along the bottom and you may get lucky.
 
SIERRA – Pretty far down on the target list right now.
 
MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO
 
IN GENERAL: According to the Terrifin SST, most of the warmer water is  
down toward Tasco. The shark buoys in that neighborhood are providing  
some fair dorado action with a few marlin spotted as well. Esteros are  
providing consistent action for corvina, grouper and pompano.
 
Water Temperature 67-78
Air Temperature 75-86

YELLOWTAIL – Watch for the bird schools near the entrada  They are up  
and down so you have to be quick.
 
CORVINA – Some action on poppers this week. Several in the 5 pound class
 
SNOOK – A few in the 3-6 pound class on an incoming tide at Los Barriles  
estero.
 
HALIBUT – Mostly smaller ones.
 
SIERRA – Nope.
