Offshore- The annual July mini-migration of sailfish has tapered off, with the sailfish action being fairy slow.
Yesterday (Wednesday), about 5 in the afternoon, we had a good rainstorm, and some wind. It did make the seas a bit rough today, and we had overcast skies all day, but everything will be calm and clear for the next several days.
The yellowfin tuna and dorado have also pulled a disappearing act, and are probably following the bait to other areas.
Inshore: The excellent roosterfish and large jack crevalle action is still holding up, especially down in the Petatlan area. Yesterday, of the 3 Dos Hermanos pangas, Cheva got 8, Jesus (Hay-soos) got 10, and Adolfo logged 15. Adolfo did tell me the jack crevalle are not around like they have been, but with the warm water and bait holding the roosters here, it is no major loss.
