Offshore (average) surface water temperature - Includes from the 5-6 mile mark at the 100 fathom line, on out to about 50 miles with the 1,000 fathom line being at 32 miles: 84°
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: 82°
Blue water: Check out the satellite photo below. Clean water, but not blue, for miles and miles. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST)
Offshore- Not a good week. A few dorado were caught, and a few sailfish. But, nowhere the numbers of what should be happening for this time of the year.
Inshore: Roosters are still far between, but they are here. Adolfo has been working the areas up near the Ranch for lots of large sierras. The roosters are evasive, as the inshore water was too clear to bring the fish close to the boat with surface poppers (our mainstay).
Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, told me he was getting a lot of large sierras on jigging type lures, cast for distance on spin rods.
I was down at La Barrita yesterday (Wednesday) visiting with Mark Denison. He told me if you are in 30 feet of water you can count every rock on the bottom.
