Z Fish Report (4/14/11)

With the clean water at 6 miles and deep blue water at 30 miles, the Terrafin Satellite Surface Temperatures are showing an average of 83º water to way out past the 80 mile mark. I have never seen water this warm during April. There sure seems to have been some current changes this last couple of years.

The offshore fishing is still on the slow side for the billfish, however lots of yellowfin tuna are being found in the blue water. Mike Buckley of the super panga Huntress emailed me this: Paige (age 8) and Charlie Walters (age 12) from Madison, N.J. took advantage of the excellent Yellowfin Tuna fishing on a recent trip on the Huntress with Capt. Francisco, each landing 3 nice tuna and hooking and releasing three others. All the fish were caught right on the 1000 fathom line on the edge of the blue water. Numerous longlines on the 20 mile line may account for the lack of Sails in the area.

Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos, had a couple of great days also. The first day they worked the area south and heading for the antennas, catching 20 large jack crevalle and 2 large roosterfish. Today (Thursday), at 14 miles they found the yellowfin tuna, and caught so many they ran out of live bait.
