|The 2nd nice rooster in the second week for Ken Hill on the panga|
Dos Hermanos with Adolfo
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 at 32 miles: 82° (The cooling trend I expected is continuing)
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 79°
Blue water: (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) Blue water is a bit further than the 100 fathom line. See below photo.
Offshore: Sailfish action has slowed to one or two fish a day per boat, which is no change from last week. With the cooling water trend, expect the yellowfin tuna and marlin action to rise.
|Above and below - On the panga Dos Hermanos|
Inshore: Some roosters are being caught, as well as jack crevalle, sierras, and lots of black skipjacks.
|Brian Hetland of North Dakota fished a day with Cheva on the panga |
Dos Hermanos II. Near the white rocks the got large jack crevall, and then
near the point, and only a half mile off the beach they got tellowfin tuna.
Long time visitor Keith Paul, from Minn. fished Tuesday with Adolfo, looking for roosters, jacks and sierras. They ended up only catching about 40 jack crevalle, and keeping 25 in the3-8 pound class. All fish were caught while casting light line spin gear. These smaller fish are considered decent eating by the locals, as the dark meat oils have not yet set in like with the larger fish. Time and time again I have seen Adolfo bring back fish to the pier, and are distributed to the poor.
On Wednesday, Ken Hill of Utah was with Adolfo. They went back to the same area and ended up with sierras and the 2nd large rooster for Ken in as many weeks.
