|A nice rooster taken this week in the Petatlan area on the pánga Dos Hermanos|
With the blue water still in tight against the coast, the surface temperatures are averaging 89 degrees out 32 miles to the 1,000 fathom curve. They are only about 2 degrees cooler beyond that.
Offshore – The sailfish action has slowed even more. Talking to the captains on the pier this morning, the general consensus is the water is too warm. They are getting only about a sailfish per day, and feel lucky if they raise 2 to the spread.
The Inshore still has decent action on roosters and jack crevalle. But, Dave Radosta, who got the huge rooster last week, went back out on Tuesday. This is what he emailed me. “Fishing today was lousy........A huge wind came in at 10:30 and shut us down. I did not catch anything, and I know Temo was next to us and also took a zero for roosters.” So, besides the huge rooster, the Fishing Gods make sure there are going to be days like that also.
