Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 89°
Blue water: Is basically just off the beach, with some green water from the Rio Balsas outflows at Lazaro Cardenas. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST)
Offshore- For sailfish, we are averaging 4-5 fish raised to the boat and about 2-3 hooked per boat per day.
Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II has been fishing offshore all week, with this last 5 days accounting for 12 sailfish hooked and 1 nice blue marlin of about 250 pounds.
We have a full moon this week, and nightly rain. The rain is between midnight and 6 in the morning, with bright sun around 9 AM. But, the seas have been a bit riled up and choppy. I have advised a couple of groups to not fish this week offshore, because they had young kids with them. I see no need to break in a kid for fishing, in a way he will not enjoy.
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 has had clients for at least two of his three boats all month. Compare that to the rest of the fleet, having only about an average of 5 boat charters a day leaving from the pier. He told me there are roosters here, but you have to work for them.
