Blue-water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temperatures from Terrafin SST). Unchanged for the last couple of weeks, the blue-water is near the beach and all the way out. This makes for very tough inshore fishing for roosters. (See photo below).

Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos made the long run to Puerto Vicente Guerrero and found big roosters and large jack crevalle last week. He did it again this week with fly-fishing clients Al and Cori Criss-Rossmeisl of Salem, OR. With several roosters and large jack crevalle taken on the fly rods from the bow, they also pitched out live bait for the angler using a spin rod and sitting near the stern. With the live bait they also scored on amberjack and pompano, of which both are excellent eating.

This is what Cori emailed me: It was our first time fishing with Adolfo, and even though we have fly-fished the flats a lot, this was a whole new experience. What makes the experience even better is Adolfo really enjoys fishing, and he is a great guy. We were totally exhausted from catching big fish and told him to head back to port in no more than 5 minutes. We just didn’t think we could reel in another fish. Three fish later, he finally turned the bow around and headed for home.
