Z Fish Report (3/12/15)

Keith Paul with a nice sierra

The blue water has moved in to just off the beach, with an average surface temperature of about 80°.

The offshore fishing has picked up a bit, with a few more sailfish raising to the boat, and lots of skipjack tuna being taken (called oceanicos). Skipjack are the most common of the canned tunas, and the Mexican people like the skipjack tuna to eat. But, to me they are only marginal, and the meat can become mushy when not put on ice quickly.
The yellowfin tuna have moved back out again.  
There has also been a surge in the number of blue marlin hooked, but the dorado have virtually disappeared.
 The inshore has a lot of sierra and jack crevalle around, and the fishing really picked up this week after the pounding we took from the high surf last week. Roosters are still scarce, but the inshore action is still the best bet.

Keith Paul of Minnesota emailed me after his day of fishing with Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos: No roosters, but lots of fish., and jacks that will sweat you down two pant sizes! 
          As usual Adolfo wouldn't let me go back to Zihuatanejo until I had Noodle Arms and was ready to drop to my knees from fighting fish
And another
We agreed on "just 15 more minutes" argued down from 20 by me, and then he handed me the live bait rod that was spooling out and said "here catch this one". I Let the fish have the count of three, slacked the line, and closed the bail. The circle hook set in the corner of the jaw of one of the bigger jacks of the day. At the 20 minute mark I heard "Hey Keith! It's 20 Minutes now" with Adolfo laughing at my grimacing while hauling on the rod and the drag screaming for mercy once again....Keith
