|On the panga Dos Hermanos - sailfish on spin gear|
The 84° blue water is still just off the beach.

Offshore.. Most boats are overrunning the sailfish, and wanting to fish the 10 to 15 mile areas. The captains I talked to, getting at least three sailfish a day, all got them inside the 5 mile mark. The others are only getting 1-2 fish a day. But, a few marlin have been in the spread this week, and probably due to the 12-15 pound yellowfin tuna making a showing at the 20 mile areas. Tuna are candy for a big blue marlin. The dorado are scarce.
First timers Jim and Donna Ettles from Saskatchewan fished a day with Noe on the panga Porpy for two nice sailfish released.

Inshore action for roosters and jack crevalle is still holding up, but the size of the roosters has scaled down a bit. A good reason for this was heavy surf battered the beaches this week, but has now diminished.

Mark Denison, on separate days, fished with Kevin and Clay Oshsikawa of Seattle, Richard King of Kelowna, BC, Laran and Lorena Brandt of Minn. down at Puerto Vicente Guerrero. They got roosters and jack crevalle on every trip but Monday and Wednesday, due to the high surf.
