Z Fish Report (6/9/16)

French client with Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos
Harley with Cheva on the Dos hermanos II
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: 87°
Inshore (average) surface temperature. Same as last week. From the beach to about 5 miles: 84°
Blue water: Is still mixed up, with clean water from the beach to the 1,000 fathom curve, and blue water out beyond that.  (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) Photo below.

Offshore. Elias Packard and Rick Jones of Canada only had three sailfish strikes, with no hookups, on the cruiser Orion on Monday. But they hooked and released an 800 pound blue marlin (estimated by owner/captain Jamie Morales at 350 to 400 kilos) after a three hour fight. In what other world class destination can you catch a huge world class marlin for only $450 a day on a 38 foot Bertram sportfisher?

 small tuna are one of  the main reasons for our success for marlin.
They are like candy bait.
On Thursday (today) they fished with Jamie on the Orion again. Elias emailed me this: Today’s fishing was excellent. We landed a tournament winning size sailfish and a 70-80 kilo (154-176 pounds) yellowfin tuna.  Hooked up with a marlin briefly but it shook off.  All in all another great day!” 
There are still very few dorado.

Inshore: We are still doing well on jack crevalle, and more roosters were taken this week. Talking to both Cheva and Adolfo on the Dos Hermanos pangas, they told me there are lots of roosters, but we have an incredible amount of jack crevalle. The roosters and jacks are all mixed together, feeding in the same areas and on the same bait. Then what happens is the smaller and quicker 10 -18 pound jacks get to the surface popper faster than the larger rooster, sometimes taking the popper just inches in front of the larger rooster.
A family affair - above James, below John and Harley

James Tapley, his son John, and nephew Harley Hamon, all from South Carolina, have fished the last few years on one of the Dos Hermanos pangas. This week they fished several days with Cheva on the Dos Hermanos II. James said they weren’t getting as many roosters as in the past, but there was always action, and they loaded up on jack crevalle.

  1. They are simply amazing to see, hope so that soon I will be having one of them too. Nice post, people who are having pets may take help from the Pet Grooming Tips to know everything in detail as well as take proper care of them to make them healthy and fit for long. This can also help you in keeping them happy and healthy for longer time.
