|Above and below: On the panga Dos Hermanos 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: 83° The traditional cooling trend appears to be starting.
Inshore (average) surface temperature - From the beach to about 5 miles: About 81°
Blue-water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temperatures from Terrafin SST). Off colored water from the beach to the 100 fathom line, with blue water on out. The blue water current is gaining ground for the inshore around the antennas to the south and more pronounced from Troncones to the north.
Offshore: Like last week, the sailfish action is still decent. The boats are averaging 3 to 4 raised sailfish a day. Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II, got three sailfish this last Sunday. There are a few more dorado showing up. The yellowfin tuna are not around.

the panga Gringo Loco
Brian Hetland is more dialed into yellowfin tuna than sailfish, and talks to the captains, like Noe every morning on the pier about 6:00. He told me the commercial pangas are bringing in tuna to 80 pounds, but they are traveling out to 30 to 45 miles to get them. A few sport boats have found them on a hit or miss situation at 20 miles.
Inshore: With the green water breaking down, and the inshore still around 80°, the roosters are still around, but scarce. The jack crevalle are more dominant now.
