EARLY MORNING SIERRA CAUGHT IN WINDY EAST CAPE FLY FISHING WEEK
Jan. 14, 2006, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, East Cape, Baja California Sur, Mexico Fly Fishing:
Sporadic north winds at East Cape this week made it necessary to decide each morning between a kickback day or fishing.
Early morning fishing for sierra has been good, although locals are complaining that the 60 degree air temperatures are cool enough to require a jacket.
The best East Cape fishing spots are at the mouths of the arroyos. If the wind doesn’t crank up too early, the ladyfish action has been great.
There are still a few dorado in the East Cape sportfishing area if you are in the right place at the right time, same with the tuna. Some of the East Cape hotel boats found schools of Yellowfin tuna to 80 pounds that were willing to bite. The billfish action has slowed in the past few weeks.
East Cape water temperature was 69-73 degrees; Air temperature 60-79 degrees; Wind NNW 12 m.p.h.; Conditions clear.
