With the clean 80° water only 6 miles off the beach, and the deep blue water out about 18 miles, the fishing is still fairly slow. Our bread and butter fish for the area, the sailfish, has been averaging less than a fish per day per boat.
Not is all bleak as Kjell of Sweden fished with Luis on the panga Gringo Loco for two days, taking a huge 50 pound (plus) dorado off a partially sunken tree limb, and released an estimated 250 pound blue marlin the next day.
Cali, Captain of the Vamonos II, did get two sailfish on Friday for his clients, and an estimated 110 pound striped marlin. He told me, as well as other captains, the seas were very rough on Thursday.
However, the inshore action has been very good. Adolfo on the Dos Hermanos, Cheva on the Dos Hermanos II, and Arturo all have been getting into large jack crevalle. The 15 to 20 pound jacks are coming off trolled Rapalas, live bait, and surface poppers, with most of the action down near the white rocks.
