Adolfo, for a nice striped marlin
Offshore- After the full moon the sailfish action has picked up quite a bit this last week. This could be the start of the July annual minor migration we get each year for sailfish. With a current 2-3 hookup average per boat, and raising 4-5 fish a day, it could be the sailfish action can actually get better in the next two weeks.
A few blue marlin are still being hooked.
Our wahoo here are neither an inshore nor offshore situation but are usually taken around the rock panicles when the blue water is in close. Arturo on the panga Janeth got 4 nice wahoo to 25 pounds, and when Adolfo went back the next day, he only got one. This is very typical for the wahoo. Here today, and gone tomorrow.
There are still very few dorado. The yellowfin tuna have moved out of range for the day sport fishing fleet.
Inshore: Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, got 5 roosters to 45 pounds fishing to the north off Pantla beach. He told me the first couple of hundred yards to areas to the south had green water, and little action.
