Z Fish Report (2/5/15)

The amazing thing about Bruce Lippman's fly hooked sailfish was the mate stayed with the hooked fish during the entire 25 minute fight. After we brought the hooked fish up high enough for a photo and got a tag into it, the released fish took off directly for the mate, and they swam away together. Imagine the chewing out he got from his mate when they were together again….?

The offshore fishing is still holding at 2 to 3 sailfish a boat, with 1 or 2 dorado. This is decent action. Anytime you can get 2 or 3 sailfish, and a 20 pound plus dorado (for several dinners) is a good day on the water. And it is the week of the full moon, when things “are not supposed to be” quite so good.

Bruce's fly caught sailfish was very active. This is typical of light line
or fly fishing.

Brad Armstrong from Alberta emailed me this: Just got back to Canada, here is one of the two Dorado we caught. I was with Mark Persson from Grimshaw Alberta. We were fishing with Noe. He was great! Spoke very good English and we had good conversation all day about the area. And of course he was great when it came to the fishing.

On Wednesday, Cheva on the panga Dos Hermanos II, released 4 sailfish and caught 2 nice dorado for his clients. 

Charlie Plum emailed me this about his inshore and offshore trips (1 each day) earlier in the week: We just returned to Minnesota. You hooked me up with Cheva and we had two wonderful days of fishing. The first day we ended up offshore, raising 7 sails and leadering three. We added one 20lb dorado we ate at the fat mermaid. Inshore didn't produce any roosters, but my wife and son came along and we got all we wanted with jack crevalle and some bonito mixed in. Watching 10-12 jacks chasing the surface popper was amazing. I want to try a trip sometime in June or July for the rooster invasion. Cheva was a true professional.
Steve and Trish Morgan of Ogden, Utah fished with Noe of the panga Porpy .  Noe worked hard all day long, but the fishing was slow.  The day's total (1) dorodo, (1) 9ft sailfish (safely released), (12) Modelos (they didn't make it).

The inshore consists mostly of jack crevalle, black skipjack, and a lot of sierra. Roosters are scarce.
