EAST CAPE

IN GENERAL: This week hurricane Howard came meandering past, bringing some much-needed rain to East Cape as its outer rings swirled over the tip of Baja. While fishing seemed to be unaffected, the unsettled conditions that prevailed most of the week kept most of the fleet closer to the dock.  

AIR & SEA -
Water temperature 81-88
Air temperature 72-92
Humidity about 82%
Wind: Southeast 10 mph
Conditions: rain
Visibility 6 miles
Sunrise 7:02 a.m. MDT
Sunset 7:32 p.m. MDT
Sept. 6, Last Quarter; Sep. 14, New; Sept. 21, First Quarter; Sep 28, Full.

+ OFFSHORE: Sails provided the bulk of the action this week.

+ INSHORE: The dorado seemed to ignore the unsettled conditions and continued to bite from Rancho Buenavista all the way to the lighthouse at Punta Arena.

+ BEACH: Wind waves and storm surge chewed up the beach pretty well. Best bet was early morning.

BILLFISH Slow for everything except the sails that could care less about a little rough seas.

YELLOWFIN TUNA Moved further offshore but the good news is it was a better quality of fish in the 20- to 30-pound range.

DORADO Close, inside of three miles from the beach produced steady action, weather permitting.

ROOSTERFISH\JACK CREVALLE Dirty water caused by the storm slowed the bite down this week.

BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK Still can be found in the same zone as the dorado.

PARGO AND CABRILLA Rocky outcropping are the best right now.

SIERRA A few around the bait receivers at La Ribera.

MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO

IN GENERAL: Tough to get outside with the lump caused as Howard passes by out to the west. Water temperatures continue to climb which is a good omen for a good fall season offshore. Esteros were less productive this week because of some large tide swings caused by full moon.  

Water Temperature 67-78
Air Temperature 76-82
Humidity 97%
Wind SSW 8 mph
Conditions Clear
Visibility 3 miles
Sunrise 7:08 a.m. MDT
Sunset 7:41 p.m. MDT

Sept. 6, Last Quarter; Sep. 14, New; Sept. 21, First Quarter; Sep 28, Full.

YELLOWTAIL Bird schools producing the best action both in and outside the entrada if the weather permits.

CORVINA Bridge at the entrance to town was the go-to spot for those who chose not to venture out in the bay because of the weather.

SNOOK Not this week.

HALIBUT Mostly smaller ones.

SIERRA A few mixed in the bird schools at the entrada.
