|Adolfo Jr with a client from last week, and a huge rooster taken down at|
Vicente Guerrero. But, thee roosters are far and few between.
Offshore (average) surface water temperature - Includes from the 5-6 mile mark at the 100 fathom line, on out to about 12 miles with 81°, then to the 1,000 fathom line being at 32 miles: 83°.
Inshore (average) surface temperature. From the beach to about 5 miles: Definitely a typical April cooling trend - very cool at 78°
Blue water: See below. (Chlorophyll amounts and surface temps from Terrafin SST) You will note the inshore has some very dirty water, and almost a red tide in some locations. Again, this is what happens during a typical April cooling trend. Historically, by the end of the 1st week in May, everything will be back to normal.
Offshore- We have yellowfin tuna (15 to 30 pounds), and blue marlin. But, they are out between 40-45 miles. We have very few sport fishing anglers, so the commercial pangeros are the ones doing the catching. There are a few sailfish, but again, it is about 20-30 miles.
No dorado have been reported.
Inshore: The dirty inshore water has slowed down most all species. However, just a couple of hundred yards off the beach, we are getting the tasty sierras, the hard fighting jack crevalle, and black skipjack tuna (called bonitos here by the captains).
Mark Denison, from his fishing lodge on the beach at La Barritra, has been doing as well as anybody for both the shore fishing and from a panga down at Puerto Vicente Guerrero.
