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. Same as last week. From the beach to about 5 miles: 80° But, local divers are telling me it is “cold” down about 20 feet. ”Cold” can mean 78°.
Blue water: Is still mixed up, with clean water to the 1,000 fathom curve, and blue water out beyond that. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) Photo below.
Offshore. The full moon period this last week hurt the fishing. The yellowfin tuna were a “being at the right place at the right time” thing. The sailfish and marlin was very slow.
There are still very few dorado.
Inshore: We are still doing well on jack crevalle, sierras, but the high waves we had this last week hurt the roosterfish fishing. Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II, to get away from the nasty shore break, fished with Ryan Feller out in front of the White Rocks. Spin fishing with Rangers, Mega Baits, and live bait, they got lots of the hard fighting black skipjack tuna, and 7 large jack crevalle. It was enough good fishing to wear anyone out.
