Before you read this fishing report, pause a moment to remember the victims and families of the cowardly 9/11/01 terrorist attack.
 
EAST CAPE
 
IN GENERAL:  The Sept. hurricane parade continued far to the south with “Isis” marching out to the west causing some grumpy seas on the outside. Plenty of big tuna were found under the porpoise and if you found the right bunch, it was wide open. However, some of the schools seemed to have a serious case of lockjaw. On the billfish front, sailfish dominated the action again this week with a handful of shots a day being the norm. Dorado in close to shore provided the post-dawn action for early risers. Also, there are a few fat skipjack in the same neighborhood extending from Rancho Leonero to Punta Arena (Lighthouse).  
 
AIR & SEA -
Water temperature 80-89
Air temperature 74-98
Humidity about 47%
Wind: 13 mph from the SE

+ OFFSHORE: Sails and tuna were the “Blue Plate Special” this week.
 
+ INSHORE:  Dorado close and plenty for the first few hours of the day.
 
+ BEACH: Still tough with plenty of off-color water caused by afternoon wind waves. Best bet early morning. For the persistent, there are some decent sight-casting opportunities mid-day from Rooster Alley to the Arroyo.
 
BILLFISH – Mostly sails with an occasional blue or stripe showing up in the pattern.
 
YELLOWFIN TUNA – Look for the porpoise and hope you find the hungry ones.
 
DORADO – You shouldn’t have to go far; inside of three miles is far enough.
 
ROOSTERFISH\JACK CREVALLE – Lighthouse for bubba or Rooster Alley for a mixed bag including jacks, roosters and ladyfish.
 
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 – Bait receivers at Punta Colorada or La Ribera seemed to have a few lurking about, don’t forget the wire or bring lots of flies.
 
MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO
 
IN GENERAL: Finally, the weather gets back to normal.  Lance Magee and Harvey Tucker of Oceanside, Calif., caught grouper, pargo and sand bass in the esteros near Lopez Mateos with Ruben Duran on the Magbay Outfitter’s “Mar Gato.” Still enough wind to make it uncomfortable on the outside. Enrique Soto at San Carlos reported few anglers this week and fair action including corvina, grouper and the ever-present cabrilla.
