It sure appears I woke up the Sea Gods last week with my report of the cold green water April current having not arrived. From the Terrafin Satellite photos, you can see they fixed half of that in two days this week, but at least the water is still warm (until next week…?) (The white areas are either land or cloud cover)
Offshore (average) surface water temperature - Includes from the 5-6 mile mark at the 100 fathom line, on out to about 50 miles with the 1,000 fathom line being at 32 miles: 83°
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 81°
The blue water has moved way out beyond the 1,000 fathom curve.
Offshore. The sailfish action remains unchanged from last few weeks and is still generally slow. The boats are hooking about a sailfish per day per boat. There are a few marlin being taken, with the blues being more predominate than the cooler water loving striped marlin.
The yellowfin tuna are still here, widely dispersed from way up at the Ranch, and about 15 miles off the beach, to Puerto Vicente Guerrero and only 8 miles off the beach. Plus, the seiners have moved in, and the bite should be over in a few days.
There are still very few dorado.
Inshore: We are still doing well on jack crevalle, sierras, and even a few roosters.
