    There is a dangerous stretch of road under construction on Mex 1 north of Jesus y Maria. Usually once the road crews begin construction, the work is completed in record time. However, during the past several months, the work on that stretch of the road has come to an apparent standstill. The link below explains what happened on this section.

    I also received the following comment from a local: Now that more anglers are bringing their own boats here to fish...they really need to respect the fishing co-ops’ work and wait until they clear the boat launch area before launching and retrieving their own boats. There is some tension with the co-ops as some people have gotten indignant and downright rude and argued with the co-op fishermen at the ramp when asked to wait. The main launch ramp at the co-op belongs to the co-op...they pay for the concession rights and that needs to be respected.

    Magdalena Bay

    Wind finally backed off and Pacific flattened out. On the outside the marlin are still around, along with some yellowfin tuna with porpoise schools . Closer to shore on the pinnacles are some larger grouper. Up in the Esteros there has been good action for snook, pargo, grouper and cabrilla. Captain Jesse Henry on the ‘Dog House’ experienced a spectacular bite, releasing 87 striped marlin in 3-days of fishing. Best day was 33 striped marlin and one (1) Sailfish… Bob Hoyt Mag Bay Outfitters

    We got rain and strong winds early in the week that actually caused minor flooding in town but once things settled down and for anyone still willing to get out in the breeze, dorado are still out there. Coral Ogden hangs onto a good bull dorado she caught north of La Paz near the island on a strip of bonito.

    Mazatlan

    Mazatlan had a great mixed-bag catches, both inshore and offshore. The offshore fleet reported in for 33 days fished that reflected six blue marlin, (all smaller fish under 300 pounds with one released) one striped marlin, twelve sailfish, (two released) twenty seven yellowfin tuna, (20 to 50 pounds) two mako sharks and fifty three dorado, (to 42 pounds). The inshore super pangas reported in for 11 days fished, one sailfish, fourteen black snook, (average about 12 to 15 pounds) nine yellowfin tuna, eight dorado, six corvina, eight red snapper, nine pompano and two seabass for their efforts. This is the time of year that good snook fishing opportunities can be found.

    Zihuatanejo

    The area beginning at about 6 miles from the entrance to Zihuatanejo Bay along the color line is producing good catches of sailfish, dorado and marlin. Lots of bait under the logs.
    The inshore fishing is now producing an excellent bite on bigger jacks, lots of bonito and sierra are biting and the fly fishermen are having a field day. The inshore water is still brackish green along the coast and the roosterfish were not cooperating at all this past week.

    Final Thoughts

    You can tell Turkey Day is close when you see people camping on the sidewalks in front of stores in search of outrageous bargains that are offered on Black Friday. Honestly, I can't imagine being caught up in that game. However, I suppose they might think the same of me if they spotted me on a Baja beach in the dark waiting for enough light to cast on a huge roosterfish slashing through a bait school.

    To each their own.

    I am thankful for all of emails and the encouragement many of you have offered. I hope all of you have as happy a Thanksgiving Day as my family is planning.

    Gary, if you bump sholders in the dark with someone on that Baja beach it might be me.

    Have a good Thanksgiving!
