Our month long annual cold and green April current appears to be over. All two days of it, and the water never did get cold. The Terrafin Satellite photo below shows what I am talking about. The water is not exactly blue, but rather “clean”.
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: 82°

If you want to fly fish here for roosters and jacks, these would be excellent
patterns to follow. Use a 2/0 to 4/0 long shank hook.
Offshore. The sailfish action picked up a bit this last week, with a solid two fish hooked per boat average. If I were an angler who likes big game, I would be heading out for the blue marlin this week. Several have been caught, and many more lost. One boat yesterday (Wednesday) raised 4 blues during the course of the day, hooked all 4, but only got 1 to the leader. They were fishing the 25 miles areas.
The yellowfin tuna, as predicted after the seiners moved in, are gone. About 20 pangas protested in the Bay, being we are a 40 mile tourist zone, and the seiners were not supposed to be here.
There are still very few dorado.

was in the back with Cheva, and doing well on the hard fighting black skipjacks
Inshore: We are still doing well on jack crevalle, sierras, and even a few roosters, but the full moon hurt us late this week. The bite seems to be later, and after 11:00, but they were not showing as strong as last week.
