Z Fish Report (6/3/10)
The deep blue 80° water is a short 6 miles off the beach and our late May / early June expectations are living up to their historical past. We have blue marlin, striped marlin, sailfish, and yellowfin tuna in the blue water. Most of the action is taking place between 12 and 14 miles.
The roosterfish have not yet shown up this week in the numbers we had hoped for, as Jay Esbahn of Ixtapa found out. Using two of some of our best panga captains for the inshore, Cheva on the Dos Hermanos II and Arturo on the Janeth, the group of 4 worked the areas south from Valentine to the 26 mile mark at the antennas, encountering water too murky for the roosters. However, in the Valentine area they did find the big hard fighting jack crevalle. These fish, averaging between 20 and 25 pounds, wore them out.
Santiago, on the super panga Gitana had a great week, fishing almost every day. Last Friday, his clients released 2 sailfish and 2 striped marlin, with Saturday’s clients releasing 2 sailfish. All were taken on conventional gear.
Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos I, reported he was fishing north today. With the water a bit cleaner than down south, however he had not yet found very many roosters either. With the 80° water on the beach, Adolfo is very confident it should happen any day now. He also fished offshore with conventional gear yesterday, releasing 3 sailfish for his clients.
