BAJA ON THE FLY'S FISH-SPOTTING DOG, COCI, PASSES ON
July 15, 2006, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Coci the fish-spotting Baja dog, calls it a season, East Cape, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
Coci, our southeast San Diego ghetto dog that morphed into to one of the best fishing dogs to hit a Baja beach, left us last Wednesday after 14 fun-filled years. A star in his own right, Coci was featured on the cover of several national sportfishing magazines with many articles about his fish-spotting abilities. Coci had a remarkable life prowling Baja beaches with me. We will all miss him!
Early in the week at East Cape, moderate to strong winds slowed the fishing down somewhat. Inshore fly fishing action was best early in the morning with plenty of ladyfish and a good pargo bite at Punta Colorada.
While there were plenty of roosterfish to look at, getting them to take the fly was a different story. Several tropical storms south of us have caused unsettled conditions for the past few days. Yesterday, in spite some rain and windy conditions in the morning, the fishing turned around with some tuna and dorado flags flying for a change.
East Cape water temperatures were 74 to 86 degrees, air temperatures 78 to 94 degrees, humidity 66 percent, conditions clear.
