Z Fish Report (8/31/17)

Fishing with Adolfo last week, before the rains came.
Sorry I haven’t done a report for the last couple of weeks. There are few people fishing, and it was a great time for me to visit my 92 year old mom for a week in California. She is a remarkable woman and is still driving, with a valid license for 3 more years (kind of spooky).
This week, after returning, we have had a lot of rain, but not serious stuff, and minimal wind. The port has been closed for a few days due to tropical storm Lidia, which formed out in front of us, and is now hitting Cabo San Lucas (heh, heh). 

 Offshore (average) surface water temperature - Includes from the 5-6 mile mark at the 100 fathom line, then to the 1,000 fathom line being at 32 miles: 82°.
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 80°
Note: The lower sea temperatures this week are due to the amount of rainfall, and the cooler fresh water floats on the surface of salt water.  
Blue water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) Blue water from the beach to way out. There are still a few isolated inshore areas with discolored water, but mostly at the river mouths.
Offshore- Last week Cheva hooked a 260 pound blue marlin for his clients. There were a few sailfish, but the dorado are scarce. Then Cheva did a switch, and fished my favorite spot off the White Rocks (the first 5 foot high pinnacle closest to Zihuatanejo). He told me he was taking 20 pound yellowfin tuna by fly lining a live bait on a spin rod. I was not surprised as I had done it many times before.  
Inshore: Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, told me last week he was still getting roosters and jack crevalle, but did not fish this week.

  1. This was such a nice come back. I've been wanting to catch such a huge fish. You just inspired me to go fishing again.
