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: 88°
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 88°
Blue water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) The blue water is from about a couple of hundred yards off the beach, and on out.
Offshore: The sailfish action backed off this week, with few fish being raised to the trolled spread. There is action for yellowfin tuna, from 10 to 20 pounds, out about thirty miles.

Inshore: The action remains the best bet. Averaging 4 to 5 roosterfish a day, a few sierras, 4 to 5 dorado, and several black skipjack tuna, and all on spin or fly gear. The roosters, like the dorado, this week were not big, but averaged between 5 to 10 pounds, with a few being larger.
