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: 86°
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 85°
Blue water: Is basically just off the beach, with some green water right on the beach to the south of Zihuatanejo. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST)
Offshore- For sailfish, we are averaging 4-5 fish raised to the boat and about 2 hooked per boat per day.
Mark of Huntington Harbor, California fished with Jesus (Hay-soos) on the panga Princess Marcy (the 3rd of Adolfo’s boats). Mark got his 1st blue marlin ever (about 180 pounds), and had a strike for another. The blues are sticking around and several are being taken each week.
There are still very few dorado. The yellowfin tuna have moved out of range for the day sport fishing fleet.
|Nice sized jacks were there at the Puerto also|
Inshore: Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, made the long run south to Puerto Vicente Guerrero with Laran Brandt. They did well with three nice roosters a few large jack crevalle and black skipjack tuna. Here is what Laran emailed me after today’s (Thursday) fishing:
Fishing for roosters today with Adolfo and Adolfo junior at Puerto Vincente I was finally able to get that skunk off my back. Our morning started out slow, working a beach south of Vincente that I was unfamiliar with. We worked the length of the beach with a few jack crevalle strikes.
After that we moved north, close to the opening of the port of Puerto Vincente and found a large school of baitfish on the surface. That's when the action became fast and furious. Three roosters back to back. By the third my hands were shaking and I was spent. The first 2 were nice fish around 30-35 lb range, thankfully the third was smaller and I was able to handle it. We also boated several jack crevalle in the 15-20 lb range.
I had a great time and am looking forward to fishing again tomorrow morning. I will no doubt be sleeping well tonight.
Ps: I have been fortunate, and have traveled to many places around the world and fished. Pound for pound roosters are by far the best fighting fish I have caught.
