The 82° blue water is about 6 to 8 miles and basically following the 100 fathom curve.
Offshore - We are only averaging about 3 raised sailfish a day, with one or two hookups per boat. All the captains say it is slow in the blue water.

Sounding a bit like a broken record, the Inshore is still the best bet for action right now, especially for the light line spin fisherman or fly rod angler. Both Cheva and Adolfo on the two Dos Hermanos pangas had fly fishermen most all this week. They were averaging at least 8, and to as many as 12 roosters a day brought to the boat for a legitimate shot for the fly anglers. It is exciting fishing, but the hookups with an artificial fly are not has productive as pitching a live bait at them with a spin rod. But, with that many shots, you are finally going to score, and the satisfaction is incredible.

And, we are still getting a few school sized dorado (up to about 3 feet long) only a few hundred yards off the beach, which are a blast on the spin or fly rods.
