Baja Mexico fly fishing update and report for January 15th 2009

Weather - This past week we have seen some nice temperatures with high's in the high 70's and even into the low 80's with over night low's in the mid 50's creeping into the low 60's. We also saw very strong winds from the North the entire week making fishing very difficult. We did see a couple of days this past week that if you were up and out early you had a chance to make a few casts before the winds really started to howl.

Beach - The beach has been very difficult unless you got up very early and took advantage of the lull in the wind on a couple of mornings. By mid morning the winds were back. If fishing from the beach we have some small rooster fish in the 1-2 pound class as well as a few jack crevelle with some of them being bigger up to ten pounds. The real catch off the beach is the sierra. We have seen very good sierra fishing from the beach to our North and to our South. To the North the area of Punta Pescadero has been very good for sierra. To the South the area around the lighthouse has been very good as well.

Inshore - Once again this week the tin boat fleet concentrated on the many sierras in the area. Most of the boat are starting at dawn if the winds allow them to launch and most are back in by about ten in the morning.

Offshore - We did not have many anglers of off shore this past week due to the wind. Those that did found the odd dorado and the occasional marlin.

Cabo san Lucas - I have spent quite a few days over the past couple of week fishing out of Cabo with my guests due to the winds here on the East cape and the fishing out of Cabo has been pretty good. Their are lot's of marlin and dorado as well as some very nice sierra and pargo along with some good rooster fish close to shore. I will be going back over to Cabo on Friday to fish with some more guests and I will be sure to let everyone know how we did.
