Z Fish Report (7/21/11)

The blue water is about 5 miles off the beach, and basically sitting on the 100 fathom line up and down the coast. The skies have also been a bit clearer, with the surface temperatures getting back up to an average of about 85 degrees.

With a stiff breeze in the afternoon, the water was a bit bumpy at times this week, but even with hurricane Dora passing by, there was just the one port closure on the day she was directly out front. We got very little wind and no rain from Dora.

The fishing is still holding up well. Sailfish are still averaging between 1 and 3 a boat per day, with yellowfin tuna averaging about 20 pounds. Also, the numbers of dorado have picked up, and then there are also the skipjacks (oceanicos). The Ducessa did well for her one day charter, at least until the clients wanted to head back in due to the chop. They caught 2 sailfish and 14 nice yellowfin tuna, all in just a few hours time.

Plus, inshore, the bite is still going very strong for the roosterfish. We are still averaging between 7 and 8 a day per boat when throwing a surface popper, backed up with a live bait in the live well attached to a circle hook.
