Z Fish Report (10/30/14)

Russ Weaver with Arturo on the panga Janeth
Update on the Municipal pier: In addition to last week's report, per the photos below, you can see the new loading and unloading area at least has steps. But, be careful when standing not just on the steps but the platform itself. When the waves are fairly large, swells are funneled into the channel, and actually will go over the platform, taking any gear or loose equipment with it.  This only happens when there are swells and you will notice the boats fighting the in and out surge. Your captains and deckhands will be more than careful, so be sure to go to the boat only when they say to. Plus, others will be helping, so just go the boat and get in as quickly as possible.
Note the steps, which are good for tide fluctuations
Offshore, the sailfish action has picked up a bit with a couple per day average per boat.  Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II had a day with 4 sailfish and Jesus (Hay-soos), on the panga Dos Hermanos III, had 3 for their French clients.
Rich Beneli fished the 1st day with Martin on the panga Spuma and the 2nd day
with Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos. He is at the new loading dock with
Martin and the Spuma

inshore is generally decent, and also a hit and miss. The blue water is making its way in closer to the beach and the inshore is clearing up in a few locations (see attached Terrafin Chlorophyll photo below).  A couple of decent sized roosters were caught this week by French clients on the panga Dos Hermanos III with Jesus, and longtime visitor Russ Weaver of Corvallis, OR fishing with Arturo on the panga Janeth. Otherwise, the roosterfish action has been spotty.

Michael with Martin on the Spuma
There were also a lot of jack crevalle, sierras, and black skipjacks. Today (Thursday), Rich Beneli of Aliso Viejo, CA really got into the medium sized jacks and sierras. Adolfo told me they got “mucho”.
Younger brother Nicolas also got in on the action
And, when you can find a floating log, there have been small to medium sized doraqdo underneath. Carlos Arcangeli fished a day with Martin on the panga Spuma and this is what he emailed me:

My sons Michael (11) and Nicolas (9) had a great time inshore fishing.  We caught about 10 bonito almost instantly, then caught 6 dorado which gave about 5 times the fight as the bonito. Rarely was there nothing going on, and we even came back early due to some seasickness...
Martìn was an awesome and informative skipper.  We can't wait to show our friends back in Scotts Valley, California what a great time we had.
