Dec. 24, 2004. Report covers the period Sat.-Fri. (12/18-12/23)
 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
 
EAST CAPE, MAGDALENA BAY, ZIHUATANEJO, MEXICO; AND SAN JOSE, GUATEMALA  
CONDITIONS
 
EAST CAPE
 
IN GENERAL:  While fishing continues to be good for this late in the  
year, the winds have made it difficult to enjoy.  On Wed. (12/22) there  
was some decent dorado action around the shark buoys near Punta  
Pescadero. We counted several marlin and one sailfish on one the few  
boats that ventured out.  If you prefer to stay a bit closer to home,  
the early morning sierra bite at the lighthouse has been great. Any  
flies with a little blue in them seem to be the hot ticket right now.  
Everyone is hoping that Santa brings lots of goodies and, as a special  
gift to East Cape, takes the North wind with him.
 
This is Tim Stelzer’s first report since returning last week from his  
summer guiding in Alaska. He will be guiding for Baja on the Fly both at  
East Cape and Magdalena Bay until late April, we are excited to have him  
back again this year.

+ OFFSHORE: If you feel lucky, there are still a few billfish around
+ INSHORE:  We expect the Sierra this time of year, so bring some wire.  
The dorado are a nice Christmas present.
+ BEACH: Windy conditions have made it tough. I did hear of several  
quality roosters landed near the lighthouse earlier in the week.
 
BILLFISH – Even a sail or two this week.
 
YELLOWFIN TUNA – Action still down toward Cabo Pulmo and beyond. It’s an  
ugly ride home if the dreaded North wind cranks up.
 
DORADO – Shark buoys in front of Punta Pescadero still holding a few.
 
ROOSTERFISH\JACK CREVALLE – The word “challenging” describes it best.
 
BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK – Still some schools down toward Cabo Pulmo.
 
PARGO AND CABRILLA – Only a few on the rocky points.
 
SIERRA – Bring wire or lots of blue flies!
 
MAGDALENA BAY, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO
 
IN GENERAL: Good traveling weather on the outside as several yachts head  
up the line for Christmas. Still a few billfish, dorado, tuna and wahoo  
to break up the monotony. Inside, with few clients interested in  
fishing, there was more attention paid to Christmas preparations. With  
whale-watching season just around the corner, everyone is hoping Santa  
will bring some of the friendly giants with him on his visit tonight.

YELLOWTAIL – A few smaller firecrackers under the birds at the entrada.
 
CORVINA – A few small ones at the pier and bridge.
 
SNOOK – North end of the bay is the best bet.
 
HALIBUT – Sand beaches and a slowly retrieved Clouser should do the trick.
 
SIERRA – Under the bird schools is the best.
