I am currently in Southern California visiting family and friends, and getting fishing gear supplies in order to be ready for this upcoming high season. My wife Rebeca called Adolfo, of the panga Dos Hermanos fame, to get the current fish report, and has relayed the information on to me.
The main obvious situation is the lack of tourism and boats getting out. Adolfo has been lucky however. With his excellent reputation, he is at least fishing a few days a week. He reported the blue water about 6 t 8 miles off the beach with about 2 sailfish and 5 to 6 very nice 15 to 20 pound class dorado a day per boat. This is very decent fishing.
Inshore Adolfo reports very few jack crevalle, but there is lots of fun on light tackle for the abundant sierras, which the word ceviche should have been derived from. And, he is still enjoying the ongoing excellent roosterfish bite that just will not die, no matter what Mother Nature has tried to throw at us this year. I thought last week’s 10 inch deluge of rain from the passing of Hurricane Hilary would slow things down a bit, but the strong blue water current keeps the inshore areas clean, and the bite is still on.
Adolfo’s clients released 16 roosters on Tuesday and another 10 roosters on Wednesday.
