SIERRA ARE BEGINNING TO SHOW UP ON EAST CAPE FISHING BEACHES
Nov. 26, 2005, Roy Baldwin, Rancho Leonero, East Cape fishing, Baja Sur, Mexico:
The East Cape sportfishing area had mild fall weather with crisp mornings around 60 and afternoon highs in the mid 80's, north wind 4 days this week, and water temperatures holding at 79-80 degree.
This last big week of fishing for the East Cape season saw a continuation of the late season billfish bite, lots of quality dorado, and a beginning of the inshore sierra bite.
A mix of striped marlin, sailfish and a few blue marlin were caught about 5 miles straight off La Ribera in a steady bite, with fish taking both live mackerel and lures.
Lots of nice dorado to 50 pounds, averaging 30 pounds, are at the buoys off Punta Pescadero, about 26 miles due north of Rancho Leonero, taking live mackerel, hoochies and lures.
Inside, sierra started showing up off East Cape fishing area beaches this week, from Rancho Leonero south to the lighthouse, taking mostly hoochies and shiny lures.
