EAST CAPE, MAGDALENA BAY, ZIHUATANEJO, MEXICO; AND SAN JOSE, GUATEMALA CONDITIONS  
 
EAST CAPE  
 
IN GENERAL: Heavy rains early in the week and the ensuing runoff created plenty of off- color water close to shore. By Thurs., Jim McBrien from Manahawkin, NJ, found excellent fishing out in front of La Ribera. Here is the report from our guide Lance Peterson: “Everyone went to Pulmo, but we went to La Ribera. Before long, we had tuna and dorado boiling big time. Jim nailed some nice ones on the fly. A sailfish came in and was busting bait so close to the boat Jim could cast to it. All-in-all we caught numerous tuna, a few dorado, and 2 big red snapper deep. Inshore is still off-color, but the weather is good right now so hopefully it clears up. The beach is still settling back into shape. Josh (another Baja on the Fly guide) beach-fished and caught some ladyfish right in front of the house. Water color made sight fishing tough.”

+ OFFSHORE: A few billfish with more sails then stripeys; the best action is out about 30 miles.
 
+ INSHORE:  Once the water began to clear up later in the week, La Ribera was the place to be.
 
+ BEACH: Wind waves and off color water made it tough to sight cast.
 
BILLFISH – Still a fair number of sailfish around until the water cools off in the next few weeks.  
 
YELLOWFIN TUNA – Good action for football-sized a few miles off of La Ribera. If you can be one of the first boats to find the porpoise schools you will do well.  
 
DORADO – Still holding up well considering it is almost Halloween.  
 
ROOSTERFISH\JACK CREVALLE – Tough to find along the beach, though a few showed up in the chum at La Ribera.
 
BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK – Breezing schools in front of La Ribera.  
 
PARGO AND CABRILLA – Rocky points and pinnacles in front of La Ribera best bet.  
 
SIERRA – Bring wire or lots of flies!  
 
MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO  
 
IN GENERAL: What a difference a week makes!  Offshore, the dorado are thick with a enough wahoo to put your teasers in peril. While far from wide open, the complaint this week was that it was difficult to get past the dorado and wahoo to catch the marlin. Strong currents at the entrada slowed things down this week and the esteros continued to bump along with only fair fishing for corvina, cabrilla and an occasional grouper.

HALIBUT – You can always find a few in the shallow water near sandy beaches.
