The 85° blue water is way out past the 25 mile mark, but clean 85° water is about 12 miles out. The sailfish action is 1 sailfish per boat average, and the dorado have moved on.
Cheva on the panga Dos Hermanos fished with Don and Mary Grantges of San Antonio Texas on Tuesday, and got about the average. They went out to the 14 mile mark, and released a sailfish, with another strike, after a couple of leaps, coming unbuttoned. They were actually looking for current weed lines and dorado. At 25 miles they called it quits and came back to the port.

Here is the dilemma with the waves: The roosters want to go back to the shoreline, and the boat has to get to deeper water so the big sets of waves do not swamp us and give us an unwanted ride to the beach. The rooster feels he has a better chance by using the shoreline waves as leverage. Then we all meet again, outside the influence of the waves, after the rooster tires and seeks the safety of deeper water.

and surface poppers. He sent me photos from a couple of weeks
ago. He and I are planning on some time together down at
Puerto Vicente Guerrero

We don't have calm surf like that here.
