The 84° blue water is still on the 100 fathom line between 5 and 6 miles off the beach.
Offshore – The fishing is holding steady with about 6 sailfish raised per boat per day. Some boats are hooking 4 and maybe even 5 sailfish a day, but the average is about 3. A few dorado are still around, and providing good action on blind strikes while trolling for sailfish. Most of the sailfish and dorado are being taken between the 12 and 13 mile marks, straight out of Zihuatanejo (200° on the compass heading).

We do have a very large group from Denmark here now, and they are all doing well, giving a lot of work to our local pangas.
Plus, showing up a bit early in the year, about 4 or 5 blue marlin were hooked this week, with most lost on the light sailfish gear. Only Mecate, on the Aqua Azul got his blue to the boat.
Don and Mary Grantges, with a condo here, and always fish with Cheva on the panga Dos Hermanos II, fished two days this week for 3 sailfish, a lost (huge) blue marlin, and a double on a couple of large 40 pound dorado.

Wade Williams and David Diffely of North Dakota fished with Chiro on the Bloody Hook for 3 sailfish and a 50 pound dorado.
Capt. Doug Schreiber, Host Of "On The Water Adventures" TV, fished a day with Francisco on the panga Huntress II for 4 sailfish released.

The inshore action slowed down, with the exception of when Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos made the long run to Puerto Vicente Guerrero with his French client. He got into a bunch of large roosters and jack crevalle on Monday. When he went back down on Tuesday, with “Chili Willie” of Dallas Oregon, and Brian from North Dakota, they only got 1 rooster.
This same pattern held up when Adolfo Jr and I went down on Thursday with fly caster Jim Gibson of Troncones/Seattle, with only 4 raised roosters and none caught.
