The blue water is basically on the beach and I do not recall ever seeing 86° water in May. That is reserved for late July and August. It appears the El Niño effect is still with us. The below Terrafin SST photo shows the story (the white areas are cloud cover).
Offshore – Raising 4 to 6 sailfish a day per boat and hooking 2 to 3 a day is the norm. And, dorado have also moved in with the warm water. What is confusing me is the blue marlin bite is still strong, in the midst of the warm water. But, the bait is here, and the marlin are now being taken from 14 to 15 miles off the beach.

Inshore: With the warm water, the roosters are back, and no one to fish for them. That sucks.
