Offshore. (Remains unchanged from last week) The sailfish action is still generally slow. The boats are hooking about a sailfish per day per boat. Blue marlin are still being found at the rate of 1 shot for every 3 boat days on the water. There are still very few dorado.

Inshore: The roosters kind of disappeared on us this week, but a couple were caught down at Puerto Vicente Guerrero. A few jack crevalle are showing, but most of the action now is on the black skipjack tuna, which the captains call bonitos, because the clients all know what a bonito is.

Here is an email I got from Philip Frazier of Minnesota: Well, my day with Cheva and Alejandro on the panga Dos Hermanos II was very good. No roosters or jack crevalle, but lots of bonito. I realize that locally it might not be considered a great day of fishing, but for me being in the fish, and ending up with a sore arm was a good day! I understand now why you told me you do not fish for the huge tuna! ......We did go north past Ixtapa Island and fished along beaches with big waves. Could be intimidating!
