Offshore – Something has triggered a very good offshore bite for sailfish and dorado, but I can only guess as to the reason. The surface water temperatures, all up and down the coast and out more than 40 miles, are still averaging a very warm 87°. And, the clarity of the water is clean, but not the deep blue you would expect.
The only factor to explain it, other than a favorable moon phase, would a large weed line, washed out of the rivers, out about 8 miles. The current appears to be holding bait, and the game fish are sticking around.
Both the Dos Hermanos pangas fished several days this week. Adolfo told they are averaging 4 hooked sailfish a day and raising about 6 into the spread. Cheva did have one great day with 8 hooked sailfish. While Cheva was into the sailfish, Adolfo found dorado averaging between 8 to 11 pounds (excellent eating size), and boated 16.

The Inshore action is still decent with a few roosters, jack crevalle, sierras, and black skipjacks. The two Dos Hermanos pangas fished 2 days each, with Adolfo and Cheva each getting 5 roosters for the two days.
