Z Fish Report (11/19/10)

Early in the week the 80° blue water moved in to within about 8 miles to the beach, with most fish being taken between the 10 and 12 mile areas. It has moved out a bit again, to about 15 miles, but the fishing is still holding well for dorado, sailfish, blue marlin, and striped marlin.

Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos, is finally back at the helm. He was off for almost 2 months due to a ruptured Achilles tendon operation. As that is how the injury happened, it sure looks like his days of playing soccer are over. He got a couple of striped marlin for his clients, several dorado, sailfish, and lost two large blue marlin this week.

Also, early in the week, Mecate on the cruiser Aqua Azul, lost two huge blues, with one estimated at over 450 pounds. He did release a couple of sails and got a nice dorado yesterday (Thursday) for his client Mike Garrett of Malvern, Arkansas.

Inshore action is still doing well for jack crevalle, sierras, and dorado only a half a mile off the beach.
