BAJA FLY FISHING REPORT BY GARY GRAHAM
July 16, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, East Cape, Baja fly fishing, Mexico:
The sailfish began to show in respectable numbers in the East Cape fishing area this week, although some were the smallest I have ever seen.
On Wednesday and Thursday, East Cape had a south wind that stirred things up a bit. The good news was the billfish were tailing within six miles of the beach. There were lots of shots, near misses and enough “would of...could of...should of” to keep the bar busy at happy hour.
Yellowfin tuna fishing was way outside early in the week, but moved closer as the week progressed. By yesterday (7/14) tuna were found just a click under 20 miles out. Size ranged from footballs to Oh my God! Baja Wasabi Jr. was the hot ticket for our clients and we were forced to tie up a new batch every night.
Beach fishing action was still slow at East Cape most of the week, though by week’s end Thomas Bell was getting plenty of shots at cruising roosters and jacks on La Capilla Beach not far from Buena Vista Beach Resort Hotel.
East Cape water temperature 73-84. Air temperature 78-97. Partly Cloudy.
