    North Wind Follows Paul's Near Miss

    REPORT #1034 ?Below the Border? Saltwater Fly-Fishing reports since 1996

    East Cape

    North Wind
    A near miss by ?Paul? brought some rain and early north winds with a few nice days mixed in making for an interesting week. While there is plenty of bait inshore and along the beach, the off-color water persisted throughout Las Palmas Bay. Early in the week, Claus Donath, Buenos Aires, Argentina struggled with the tough conditions. During his two days of fly-fishing he managed to land his first rooster on the fly and had some ladyfish action as well.
    While tuna could be found below Los Frailes, if you didn?t get there early you were out of luck and had to face a rough ride back to the hotel. While there were a few dorado for the persistent angler, the action was mostly singles ? not the schools that produce non-stop action.
    On the marlin front, action continued at a moderate pace on the good weather days and tough on the windy days.

    Offshore action for dorado and tuna continued to be productive and the marlin bite improved from the previous week. Closer to shore, the grouper action was great within five miles of the boca.
    Enrique Soto reported that the entrada continued to produce fair action for firecracker-sized yellowtail on the surface, while further down in the water column they found a few leopard grouper to 20 pounds. West of the entrada five to 20 miles there were plenty of dorado under the shark buoys.
    The esteros, while lightly fished this week, still had corvina, grouper and decent pargo action at both Devil?s Curve and up north of Lopez Mateos.

    Currents have the water conditions a bit mixed this week. On a 180? heading, we have 86? blue water at 12 miles. But, on a 220? heading we have 83? blue water at 22 miles.

    This lack of a defined pattern has hurt the fishing somewhat. We are only averaging 1 or 2 sailfish per day / per boat. A few 20- to 25-pound class dorado are still showing, but the tuna left the area.

    The main action is still inshore, and on the beaches. On the beaches, the roosterfish are averaging at least 4 to 5 fish per day / per boat. Klaus Meyer of Texas fished one day with Santiago on the ?Gitana? and caught four roosters to 45 pounds.

    Fly-fishermen are doing very well inshore on the black skipjack tuna, a few sierras, and the smaller jack crevalle.
