EAST CAPE, MAGDALENA BAY, ZIHUATANEJO, MEXICO; AND SAN JOSE, GUATEMALA CONDITIONS  
 
EAST CAPE  
 
IN GENERAL: When we returned from Magdalena Bay on Tuesday the North winds were still around.  This weekend however, is beautiful and expected to stay that way through Tuesday. Still a few left over tuna and dorado offshore and inshore the skipjack, roosters and jacks seem to be the best bet. With the nice weather I would expect to see a few smiling faces in the bar tonight even though the season is pretty much over.

YELLOWFIN TUNA – Porpoise and birds will be the best clue.

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.

MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO  
 
IN GENERAL: Jamie Pierre, Seattle, WA, along with his band of brothers headed over to Lopez Mateos to fish offshore with Mag Bay Outfitters using their 26-foot catamaran, “Mar Gato”, skippered by Ruben Duran and an offshore panga with local pangero, Sergio, they headed out the Boca to see what was shaking. Turned out to be a wide open Yellowfin bite only 12 miles off the beach. Limits all around for both days. Unfortunately, with the Pacific cooling off quickly, the dorado, wahoo and billfish seem to have headed further down the coast ending what many consider a lackluster season. In the Esteros up at Boca Santo Domingo on the last day the group found a few sierra, pargo, grouper and lost one large corvina.  
On another subject, Don Juan, a 72’ Elliott owned by John Lyddon from Southern California was anchored just off the pier in town. This is the first time in a number of years that a Sportfishing yacht has managed to come in through the Boca. Bob Hoyt of Mag Bay Outfitters had provided a guide to lead them in.  
I met Don Juan’s Captain, Billy Callinan, while I was there last week and he told me about the wide open pompano bite at Santo Domingo. With the Don Juan backed up to the mangroves they landed three pompanos up to thirty-two pounds. The last time I can remember hearing stories like this was when the legendary Captain Gene Grimes use to make forays up into the mangroves with the 90’ Legend.
