The 82° blue water is holding at about 10 miles, with most of the action taking place between 12 and 15 miles. The very good striped marlin bite is still holding up, with each boat in the fleet averaging about 2 striped marlin and a sailfish a day.
Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos told me the jack crevalle action is still slow, but there are a lot of other small game fish around to keep a light line rig very busy. He reports acres of black skipjack tuna, which are not table fare, but very hard fighting machines. And, lots of small "chicken" dorado, who are growing up fast.
Mike Buckley of the super panga Huntress, with Captain Francisco, emailed me the following:
Fishing was very good inshore. We had only one or two strikes out between the 15 and 25 mile lines. Lots of Bonita and small Dorado inshore off Ixtapa Island.
