|Daryl Kuntz fished down at Puerto Vicente for this nice rooster|
and several large jack crevalle.
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 about 32 miles: 84°
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 81°
Blue water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) Blue water is a bit further than the 100 fathom line. See below photo. Also note the greenish water inside the 100 fathom line, with some sections close to the beach being very stained water (almost a red tide situation)
Offshore: Sailfish action has slowed to one about a fish per day per boat. Some yellowfin are being taken at 28 miles plus, and a couple of blue marling have been taken in the same area.

Below: The results
Daryl Kuntz of Vancouver Island stayed down at La Barrita at Mark Denison’s fishing lodge for a few days, and they fished down at Puerto Vicente for one day. Daryl emailed me this: Was out with Mark on the salt today and had a fantastic time. Lots of jacks wanted to play and a 35 pound rooster jumped on my line. Beautiful fish and looked good upon release.
