But, lack of participation also means lack of income for fishing and hunting, and it is always the sportsmen’s dollars who lead the way for future conservation.

checking things out. They had just lauched the Huntress II
and broke her in wih a sailfish and a dorado on her maiden voyage.
While on the Municipal Pier this morning (Thursday) at 5:30, and talking to the captains to get a feel for this fish report, they were trying to “promote” me by saying 5 and 6 sailfish a day by, etc. But further questioning, and also by spending the day on the water with fly fishing client Brent Schwarz of Lake Geneva WI, I came to realize it is a whole different story. More realistic is 2 sailfish a day, with most of the fish caught 2 to 4 miles offshore, and using conventional gear. And, very few dorado are being taken. It is darn tough with the fly rod right now.

For sure a couple of boats posted 4 and 5 fish days this week, but historically we should have a few boats posting double digit days, with the rest averaging 4 to 5 releases.
Also this morning, Adolfo and Cheva on the Dos Hermanos boats told me they have been fishing the inshore all week. They both told me there are lots of sierras and green jacks, but the jack crevalle and roosters are scarce.
