|I couldn't believe the size of this pampano. She took it fishing with Adolfo,|
on the panga Dos Hermanos. Note her arms are not extended.
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 85°
Blue water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) There is a strong blue water current. The true blue water starts about 12 miles, but from there, back to the beach is a very clean water.

Offshore: Talking to Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II, the action has moved from the 20 mile mark to a closer 12-14 miles. With the full moon, the offshore action has slowed. There is still at least one sailfish per boat taken, and a few dorado.
I expect the offshore action to pick up a lot about the end of next week.

Full moon night fishing: Gord Roberts of Saskatchewan, Canada seems to be the only smart fisherman here during the full moon period. This has been going on for several years now, as he fishes with Noe, on the panga Porpy. The photos Gord has sent to me, over the years, have been reported on this fish report many times.
I have fished with Noe for the incredibly white meat and tasty barracuda, and he is really dialed in. If anybody will catch them, with his double hook setup, using a slab of the shiny sierra, he will make it happen. When cooked correctly, it is hard to differentiate the barracuda from wahoo.
This morning on the pier, Noe had fished with Gord the night before, got a couple of hours of sleep, and was taking another client out. Noe told me it was a strange night for him. They had about 15 strikes, but all short biters, and only managed three fish. He was a bit upset, but knew it was beyond his control.

Inshore: The inshore action is fantastic for a few boats who travel the distance to find fish. This is where Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos excels. There are lots of roosters, but not close to Zihuatanejo. Most of the action this last few weeks has been south.

If you want to be serious about your fishing, and really want a rooster, please remember our fuel costs here are the same as in Canada, and at almost $4.00 a gallon, which is more than the States. The advertised rates are for local fishing only.
