|Matt, Wade, Derrick, and Brent rewarded themselves after three days of fishing|
with Cheva on the panga Dos Hermanos II, and Jesus (Hey-zus) on the panga Dos
Hermanos III. They were at the the Mirador restaurant above Art's store on the pier.
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°
|With Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos|
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 84°
|Wade with Jesus|
Blue water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) Clean water starts at the 100 fathom line, and on out. On northerly headings, heavy releases of fresh water from the Rio Balsas are making the water green (see below photo).
Offshore: The action has been scattered, with fish taken at the 13 mile mark, on out to 20 miles. Some captains hit a day with five sailfish, others only get a couple of strikes. The dorado are picking up some, with at least one per boat.
|A nice sailfish from the North Dakota boys|
Matt, from North Dakota emailed me this: Wade and I had a good day in Jesus’s boat, the panga Dos Hermanos III. We raised 5 sail strikes, hooked all 5 and landed 4 with 3 released. All were the same size in that 70-90lb range approximately. Wade also caught a nice dorado cow and bonito were caught as well.
The other boat did well which was Brent and Derrick with Cheva, on the dos Hermanos II. Derrick landed his first sail fish and Brent got a large cow dorado and also landed a sail. Their boat had 3 strikes and landed all three, with the sails being released. Fishing was about 20 miles out in the blue water.
|Nice sierras with Adolfo|
Inshore: All three Dos Hermanos pangas had a great week. Adolfo, picked up a couple of nice roosters way down at Vicente Guerrero, then the next day, went way up to the north to the Ranch, and scored big. They came across a large migration school of huge roosters, and they were feeding. Six large roosters later, averaging 40 pounds, and even losing one estimate to close to 80 pounds, the bite ended. The large gallo was lost about 15 feet from the boat.
I have emailed him a copy of my book, The Rooster and the Fly.
