Z Fish Report (3/16/11)

The blue water is still way out beyond the 50 mile mark, but at least clean water has moved into about the 18 mile areas. Offshore fishing still remains slow, and will probably stay this way for a few more weeks. The boats are averaging less than a sailfish or striped marlin a day each.

 Mike Bulkley, with Captain Francisco of the super panga Huntress, had this to say when they fished on Tuesday: We ran one trip offshore and managed to get 4 Dorado under a floating weed pile. No other strikes. We came back inshore and caught Bonita about a mile off the beach. The blue water is about 18-20 miles out and not really blue, more clean than green. Saw one sail free jumping on the 12 mile line in green water. Francisco then went back to the same spot at 22 miles and a 240º heading and released 3 sailfish.

Again, about the only high note has been the inshore action. It has been excellent for sierras, jack crevalle, and even quite a few pompano.

Hermanos II. Note the double hook-up with Tim on the spin rod.

Early in the week John Pratt of Wisconsin and his two sons, ages 10 and 5, fished with Cheva on the panga Dos Hermanos II and had a blast. They got about 25 fish of several species, which is just the thing needed to get kids hooked on fishing. A blue water boat ride will just burn them out.
