Both inshore and offshore are averaging about an 84° surface temperature. And, the blue water is about 10 miles off the beach.
The Offshore action has been decent this last week. With only about 4 or 5 boats a day going out, it is difficult to get a true perspective, but the reports are good the dorado and sailfish bite is fairly strong. Adolfo fished one day in the blue water earlier this week, with 4 sailfish and a couple of nice sized dorado for his French clients.
One thing that does bother me though, from talking with a few of the captains on the pier this morning (Thursday), the consensus is there are a lot of long lines again. Apparently, they are well aware of the situation, but choosing to not be vocal about it. It has been a tough low season for all, and it appears they are not meddling in areas where their relatives and friends are making an illegal living. It is short sighted to assume it will only affect them when they have clients during the high season. And, I don’t see how they will be able to put a stop to it when the clients start coming in November.
On a good note, most all the captains told me from the end of October, all the way through November, they already have bookings for charters, with a few of the boats booked out completely. There are going to be a lot of anglers, waiting for a week or two before they arrive to make a reservation, and are going to be very disappointed when they can't get the boat they want.
The inshore has turned around very well. The rains have not been too intense, allowing the inshore water to clear up a bit. Logging 7 days of fishing this week, the two Dos Hermanos boats have caught 28 roosters, for an average of a solid 4 roosters a day per boat. The fish are mixed in size from about 20 to 50 pounds.
