fish 15 to 30 days straight, and people wonder why they
can't book a single day with Adolfo
Offshore (average) surface water temperature - Includes from the 5 to 6 mile mark at the 100 fathom line, then to the 1,000 fathom line being about 32 miles: 85° The warm water is still holding up.
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: About 84°
Blue-water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temperatures from Terrafin SST). Blue-water is near the beach, and all the way out. Near the beaches are spots of lightly discolored water, but very few. (See photo below).
Offshore: The offshore fishing for sailfish is still holding well. In addition, an occasional dorado or blue marlin is taken. The yellowfin tuna have moved out to about 30 miles and are spotty.

|Lots of big jack crevalle up at the Ranch this week|
Inshore: Roosterfish and large jack crevalle are doing well, along with sierras and black skipjack tuna. Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos told me he made the long run to the ranch and did well. He told me he wished he had a fly-fishing client yesterday (Wednesday). He located several schools of large jack crevalle, and they were hungry. Five to ten would be following and slashing at the surface popper. It would have been a hook-up on every cast for the fly rod.

at Puerto Vicente Guerrero on the panga Bandito del Mar
Tas Mahr of New York stayed a couple of days at Mark Denison’s Fish camp in La Barrita. They fished a day with Rody down at Puerto Vicente and did well. They caught several of the good eating sierras, a few black skipjacks, a few medium-sized jack crevalle, and a nice rooster. Mark told me the water was so clear he was looking at the bottom in 50 feet of water. To get the rooster, they worked a discolored water line next to the clear water. The gamefish stay in the discolored water and ambush baitfish as they swim past.
