|On the panga Dos Hermanos|
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: 86° (where is the cooling trend I expected?)
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 83°
|Adolfo is happy|
Blue water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) Blue water is almost all the way to the beach up and down the coast. See the below satellite photo. (The white areas are either land mass or cloud cover).
Offshore: Sailfish action has slowed to one or two fish a day per boat, much the same as this last week. John Wilkinson, from MINN. fished with Adan on the panga Gitana II, for 13 sailfish in 5 days of fishing, and a large 100 pound yellowfin tuna.
Inshore: Some roosters are being caught, as well as jack crevalle, sierras, and lots of black skipjacks. Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos had a spectacular day with 8 roosters, pargo, and sierras.
