Z Fish Report (4/6/17)

Adolfo Jr with a client  from last week, and a huge rooster taken down at
Vicente Guerrero. But, thee roosters are far and few between.
Offshore (average) surface water temperature - Includes from the 5-6 mile mark at the 100 fathom line, on out to about 12 miles with 81°, then to the 1,000 fathom line being at 32 miles: 83°.
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: Definitely a typical April cooling trend - very cool  at 78°
Blue water: See below. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) You will note the inshore has some very dirty water, and almost a red tide in some locations. Again, this is what happens during a typical April cooling trend. Historically, by the end of the 1st week in May, everything will be back to normal.
Offshore- We have yellowfin tuna (15 to 30 pounds), and blue marlin. But, they are out between 40-45 miles. We have very few sport fishing anglers, so the commercial pangeros are the ones doing the catching. There are a few sailfish, but again, it is about 20-30 miles.
No dorado have been reported.
Mark Denison (blue shirt in the middle) with Terry and Eric of Helena, MT,
with the jack crevalle and sierra they got down at Puerto Vicente.  The
captain, Julio, is on the far right. The kids have helped us, since I started the trend,
18 years ago The shorter of these kids are a 2nd generation for 
helping us load and unload the panga. They get 10 pesos each, and often 
beat us as we drive out, to the store to buy a candy.
Inshore: The dirty inshore water has slowed down most all species. However, just a couple of hundred yards off the beach, we are getting the tasty sierras, the hard fighting jack crevalle, and black skipjack tuna (called bonitos here by the captains).
Mark got back his lucky shorts. He has had them for 20
years. It got to be I told him to either change his shorts,
 or at least the location to take the photo. The photos started to
look like the same fish from last year, or the year, before
 They got sewed back up and on the first day, he is back in
business. At a different location
Mark Denison, from his fishing lodge on the beach at La Barritra, has been doing as well as anybody for both the shore fishing and from a panga down at Puerto Vicente Guerrero.
