We have all been waiting for the “typical” May pattern to show up, and it finally has. With the blue water only 4 miles off the beach and the SST surface temperatures showing 82º inshore and 86º offshore, the fishing has been improving. In the blue water we are getting a few yellowfin tuna, blue marlin, sailfish and dorado. There are not a lot of them, and it still depends a bit on luck, but they are being caught.
It is the inshore for roosterfish that has a lot of us excited. The fishing has been incredible. Last week Adolfo had a fantastic day on roosters by catching 15 and losing several others. But, he told me he has been out three days this week and matched those numbers every day. He said he is taking roosters from 35 to 70 pounds.
Other captain friends on the pier have been telling me they have not fished at all this week. There simply just aren’t very many people here to go after them.
