Offshore- Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II, called me yesterday and said he had fished offshore, with not a single raised fish or strike. Plus, thew tuna are way out, and no dorado have been seen.
|Some of Mark Denison's shore caught jack crevalle and sierra|
Inshore: However, Cheva also went on to tell me he has mostly been fishing the inshore, and it is very good. He has been getting lots of very large jack crevalle, sierras, and black skipjack near Barra Potosi and the White Rocks, and jacks, sierras, and a few small roosterfish up near the Ranch.
Mark Dennison, shore fishing in front of his fishing lodge at La Barrita, told me large jacks are out in front, and just out of his casting range. They are between 10 and 20 pounds, feeding on the abundant bait (sardines) in the area. He also told me he still managed 8 smaller jacks and some nice sierras.
