BILLFISH STILL BITING IN WINDY FISHING CONDITIONS AT EAST CAPE
Nov. 26, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, East Cape Fly Fishing, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
You can’t count out East Cape fishing just yet. In spite of windy conditions early in the week, East Cape's billfish just didn’t want to quit.
Jim Easterling of Houston, and his family found the fishing action to his liking with plenty of marlin and sails on Monday. Making the trek up from Cabo San Lucas again on Wednesday, he found an instant replay of the first day, sans wind.
There are still a few tuna in the East Cape sportfishing area and even a few late-blooming dorado are to be found when the wind takes a breather.
Lane Garrett reported the weather for the past few days was perfect and wonder of wonders, the dorado finally decided to bite. The shark buoys produced great action yielding some quality dorado from 15 to 30 pounds. Lane even caught one in the 10 pound range from his kayak just south of Hotel Palmas de Cortez. The only thing I can figure is the smell of turkey woke them up! East Cape water temperature 79-84; Air temperature 70-81; Conditions clear.
