EAST CAPE, MAGDALENA BAY, ZIHUATANEJO, MEXICO; AND SAN JOSE, GUATEMALA CONDITIONS  
 
EAST CAPE  
 
IN GENERAL:  Wind . . . wind . . . wind: another cookie cutter week. This is the time of year that drives the locals’ nuts. Much more time is spent decorating than fishing! There are still some fish around; the trick is to find them before the wind finds you.

Water temperature 70-74  
Air temperature 59-78  
Humidity about 60%  
Wind: North 8 mph  
Conditions: Scattered Clouds  
Visibility 15 miles  
Sunrise 6:54 a.m. MST  
Sunset 5:37 p.m. MST  
 
Dec. 18, First Quarter; Dec. 26, Full; Jan. 3, Last Quarter; Jan. 10, New.  
 
+ OFFSHORE: Few billfish and tuna for the lucky.  
+ INSHORE:  Sierra have begun their annual snap, so bring some wire.  
+ BEACH: The earlier the better.  
 
BILLFISH – Still a few resident fish hanging around.  
YELLOWFIN TUNA – Everything seems to be in the southern sector, which means a bumpy ride home.  
 
DORADO – Look closer to shore between La Ribera and the lighthouse.  
 
ROOSTERFISH\JACK CREVALLE – Slow this week.  
 
BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK – Not much this week.  
 
PARGO AND CABRILLA – Only a few on the rocky points.  
 
SIERRA – Bring wire or lots of flies!  
 
MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO  
 
IN GENERAL: Big news this week was that several yachts traveling though the area found a wad of wahoo on the Thetis. Still a few billfish reported in the southern sector below Punta Tasca from the pinnacle on down 10-15 miles. Not many fishing in the esteros at San Carlos and just a few up at Lopez Mateos. Both areas reported decent action for corvina and sierra with a few grouper, pargo and even an occasional snook for the persistent.  
 
Water Temperature 69-75  
Air Temperature 66-71  
Humidity 91%  
Wind Calm  
Conditions: Clear  
Visibility 3 miles

Sunset 5:41 p.m. MST  
 
Dec. 18, First Quarter; Dec. 26, Full; Jan. 3, Last Quarter; Jan. 10, New.  
 
YELLOWTAIL – No one made it out to the entrada this week, so it’s a “maybe.”  
 
CORVINA – Much smaller than earlier in the year.  
 
SNOOK – Ruben’s secret spot still producing a few.  
 
HALIBUT – Sand beaches and a slowly retrieved Clouser should do the trick.  
 
SIERRA – Under the bird schools is the best.
