Friday 4:30 Guatemala on the Fly
Saturday 3:30 Baja on the Fly
Calm today.  Early sierra bite good at Rancho Leonero.  Lots of skipjack all over.  Anything  
purple seems to work.  Water is clear.  Everyone hopes the wind stays calm for a few days.

Magdalena Bay, Baja Mexico    
Nice weather greeted the large number of folks arriving to get up close and personal with the whales this week. Best action continued to be out at the entrada.  A few yellows, small grouper and the barracuda were thick. I am not aware of anyone who ventured up into the esteros this week, so there is little to report on that front. Up at Lopez Mateos the focus is primarily on the whales and the upcoming annual celebration of the Whales, “Festival Ballena Gris”  will be held Feb. 12.

Zihuatanejo, Mainland Mexico    
The 80 degree blue water is less than a mile off the beach, and the gamefish have come in with the water. Most captains are working an area from 5 to 8 miles from the entrance to Zihuatanejo Bay, with none going any further than 13 miles. The boats are averaging about 8 raised fish a day. The conventional gear anglers are releasing an average of 4 sailfish a day, with the fly fishermen getting at least one and sometimes two a day.  
 
Several boats this week have released 7 fish a day. Santiago on the panga “Gitana” released 7 fish two days running with client Bill Grey of South Carolina. Santiago has, over this last 6 days, released 30 sailfish total.
 
Baja on the Fly client Derek Fasio hooked and released his first sailfish on the fly, as well as Tom Burns of Boston.  
 
Dorado are still scarce, and only being taken while trolling sailfish gear. The tuna have moved out to the 35 mile mark.

San Jose, Guatemala    
The weather this past week was downright ugly, with very windy conditions.  A few boats ventured out, but the fishing was difficult to put it best.  As the week went on, the conditions have improved, and the numbers on sailfish improved.  There was a blue marlin also released.  Inshore, where the wind slowly sandblasted you, there was some good action on roosterfish, and strangely enough, several dorado and a sail were caught.  The water color varied between blue and bluish green in the productive areas.
