EAST CAPE  
 
IN GENERAL: There are plenty of large dorado in the front yard less than three miles from the hotels. Additionally, an extraordinary tuna snap a few miles further out has everyone trying to catch their breath by noon. Billfish are the weakest link in the Grand Slam, but who cares when you have fat dorado and tuna to bend your rod all morning?

+ OFFSHORE: Tuna is their name and that’s the game. A few billfish if you care.  
 
+ INSHORE:  Dorado, close to shore and aggressive, dominated the scene all week. It doesn’t get much better.  
 
+ BEACH: More roosters and anglers as everyone is focusing on the tuna and dorado whack.  
 
BILLFISH – OK if you have to.  
 
YELLOWFIN TUNA – Fling a wasabi toward the porpoise and hang on. Repeat as needed until too tired to reel.  
 
DORADO – Getting larger, but still within a few miles of shore.  
 
ROOSTERFISH\JACK CREVALLE – Still looking for a fight after a long day?  Try early morning in front of your hotel. Look for the birds and boils.  
 
BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK – Only an incidental catch this week.  
 
PARGO AND CABRILLA – Rocky points best.  
 
SIERRA – Not enough to rig with wire.  
 
MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO  
 
IN GENERAL: Rough seas all week prevented many from venturing out. There were a few dorado, wahoo and marlin with lockjaw reported at 14 to18 miles on a 230-250 heading for the few who braved the conditions. Back at the entrada, for those with more nerve than discretion, the yellowtail and grouper kept their party going.

YELLOWTAIL – Watch for the bird schools at the entrada.  
 
CORVINA – Still spread out the bay from the entrada to Devil’s Curve.

HALIBUT – Always!  Just find a sandy beach and try a slowly retrieved Baja Deep Diver  
 
SIERRA – A few mixed in the bird schools at the entrada.
