The 80° blue water is still holding just 4-6 miles off the beach, and the fishing is holding up well also. Few boats are on the water, with only a maximum of 10 boats fishing a day, and often much less. Blue marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, and a few striped marlin are make up the majority of the catches offshore.
Santiago on the supper panga Gitana, and his brother Adan, on the panga Gitana II, only fished 1 day each this last week. However, Dave Sicard and his son from Mississippi, fishing with Santiago, released 2 sailfish and got 4 yellowfin from 10 to 30 pounds. And, Walter Glen of Las Vegas, fishing with Adan, caught and released an estimated 90 pound striped marlin on the fly.
Plus, Russ Hampton of Los Angeles fly fished on the Dos Hermanos II, with Cheva at the helm, hooking 6 roosters and catching 4 on the fly in two days of fishing. Adolfo’s clients have taken 12 roosters and “Mucho” jack crevalle on conventional gear over a 5 day span.
