|With Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos|
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: 85°
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 86°
Blue water: Is about three miles off the beach. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST)
Offshore- For sailfish, we are averaging 2-3 fish raised to the boat and about 2 hooked per boat per day.
Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II, hooked and released 3 sailfish on Tuesday for his clients.
There are still very few dorado. The yellowfin tuna have moved out of range for the day sport fishing fleet.
Inshore: My son, Ken was visiting me for a few days. Tuesday morning he got on Adolfo’s 3rd panga, the Princess Marcy, with Jesus (Hay-zoos) at the helm. Making a long run to Petatlan, they were back by noon, with 3 roosters hooked and several black skipjack. I took Ken to the airport, and he was at his house in California by 8 PM. Not a bad day.
Adolfo has been doing well on roosters all week.
