Santa brings wind to East Cape

Southern Baja fly fishing report for the third week of December 2007

Report By – Jeff deBrown
The Reel Baja


Hello everyone,

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. For us here in the East Cape Santa brought a strong North wind that has been blowing for the last few days. We did get a nice break yesterday morning as we awoke to see what was under the tree but by mid afternoon the wind was back. We have seen some pretty good fishing early in the mornings before the wind kicks up. The species we are finding along the beach are Sierra along with a few small to medium Jack Crevelle, and quite a few lady fish. I have a friend Paul who was out early on Monday and he encountered a good bite on Sierra and Jacks in the area of La Ribera. I was fishing in front of my house yesterday as I took my son down to the beach to try out the new rod and reel Santa brought him for Christmas and we had a very good lady fish bite for the hour and a half or so we spent fishing.

A few days ago before the wind we still had a fair number of smaller Tuna and a few Dorado in the area as well as a few Marlin. I know that not many boats have gone out this past week with the hotels not having many guests due to the holiday and guests that are here decided not to brave the wind and instead enjoy the festivities on land.

I am headed to Cabo San Lucas today to guide some guests that are staying down their. I will be fishing their most of the week and I will give everyone a report from their. I hope all of you that received a new rod or reel under the tree get a chance to get out and use it soon.
