|Dave Radosta of Minn. has a house in Trroncones and fishes with Adolfo|
whenever he getsa chance. Like this last Monday, it usually pays off.
All up and down the coast, starting at the beach, and on out 30 miles to the 1,000 fathom curve, the surface temperatures are averaging about 89°. The current has shifted some and is bringing the heavy fresh water releases from behind the dam on the Rio Balsas at Lázaro Cardenas down the coast and making the inshore, out to the 100 fathom curve, green and turbid (about 6 miles). Fresh water out of the rivers is rich in nutrients and chlorophyll, causing the greening effect.
South of Zihuatanejo Bay, the inshore water cleans up again. The releases have also affected the blue water, with the deep blue being out to almost the 1,000 fathom curve.
|Another nice rooster for Dave on Monday|
Offshore – The average is about 1 or 2 hooked sailfish per boat per day, and raising 3or 4 fish. Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II fished a day getting 2 sailfish for his client. He said the blue water was out further, but it was fairly clean when he went 8 miles on a southerly heading. He did not see any dorado.
|And a 3rd one coming to the boat for Dave|
The Inshore still seems to be the best bet, with roosters mostly being in the cleaner water south of Zihuatanejo. Cheva fished a day down at Petatlan and got 5 nice roosters for his clients. Adolfo fished 4 days on the panga Dos Hermanos and scored every day.
