East Cape  
The fishing right now is poor.  The wind is blowing and the waves are up to 10 feet high.  Biggest surf I have ever seen here.  Water is brown and cooling off.  The fishing was OK before the wind started.  Bob at the tackle shop caught a 25 pound rooster at La Rivera on a top water plug.  The Sierra that were south of the light house left.  A Spa boat went there 4 days ago and didn't get any.  Locals have been catching good numbers of Sierra north of town on silver homemade lures and hand lines.  The bite stops at first light.  Some small Dorado and a few skip  
Jacks at Punta Pescadero, blue and white still the favored color.  
Report by Baja on the Fly guide Tim Selzer
OFFSHORE: More winter weather kept boats close to shore
INSHORE:  Punta Pescadero for small dorado early morning
BEACH: Still some sierra and small roosters if you can beat the wind

Magdalena Bay, Baja Mexico    
The Entrada produced a few yellows as well as leopard grouper if the fly below all of the barracuda on the surface. Up in the esteros the Corvina shut off leaving only the cabrilla for the few fishing this week. The whale count continued to climb with more than 15 spotted near the Entrada.
Lopez Mateos…Last week local fishermen caught a 80lb grouper. Outside the channel it was slow do to weather.3 to 4 whales spotted and one mom and her calf in the bay. Lopez Mateo will be having the Whale Festival soon. Diana Hoyt, Magbay Outfitters.

The 80 degree blue water is just off the beach a couple of miles, and the inshore water is clear and clean. The fishing for sailfish has slowed down a bit over the last week. Most boats going out are raising 3 to 4 a day, but only hooking one or two.  
 
However, a lot of boats are taking some 30 to 45 pound dorado. All the dorado are being caught as an "incidental catch"  while trolling for sailfish. Plus the yellowfin tuna have been making a strong showing this week. It is good to see the dorado and tuna back. I have had fresh fish for dinner 4 nights this week. The tuna have been located at the 16 mile mark, and some of them are huge. The majority of the tuna are going about 60 pounds, but the panga Paola did boat a 250 pond fish.  
 
The strong roosterfish and jack crevalle bite has finally slowed down to a normal winter time pace. Only one or two fish per day are being taken per boat.

San Jose, Guatemala    
The weather continues to be great with fairly calm seas, and the fishing action has been steady all week long.  There were no local boats out, but some visiting boats experienced some excellent action on sails and Dorado. One boat averaged 17 releases per day on the fly over 3 days, and one averaged 20 per day on conventional tackle.   The boats have mainly been fishing 20-27 miles offshore, but are seeing fish in as close as 10 miles.
