Z Fish Report (3/23/17)

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: 82°.
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 81°

Blue water: See below. The white areas are cloud cover. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST)

This morning, Anibel, Cheva’s oldest son, lives close to me in Coacayul, and I spotted him waiting for a combi to take him to Zihuat. He works with Temo on the panga Suquestra Amor (Steal Your Love). And is a captain himself, taking a second boat when Temo has another client. I picked him up on his way to the municipal pier, and gave him a ride. He immediately started speaking in English, which astounded me. On the pier in the mornings at 5:30, everything among us captains is Spanish. Many a person has asked me in the past, if the captain speaks English. Sometimes I do not have a clue. This was an eye opener, and Anibel told me this.  
Offshore- He went out yesterday. The blue water was perfect, and all conditions were excellent. But, there were no fish. They had one strike on a sailfish on a long day. There were no other signs for birds, bait, dorado, or tuna.   
Inshore: Anibel also told me, what I had already known from Adolfo and Cheva, on the Dos Hermanos pangas, the action for roosters is very good when making the long run to Puerto Vicente Guerrero. The fish are concentrated in the Calvario area. He also told me he got into some large jack crevalle (from 18 to 20 pounds)at the river mouth of Vanentine, which was a fly fisherman’ dream, with 5 to 6 of the large jacks chasing the hookless Ranger lure popper on every cast. After 8 fish, the client said “no more”, and they headed back to the pier.
