Z Fish Report (9/15/11)

What a difference after a week or so of not having our usual September rains. The fishing is excellent. The 83 degree blue water is basically hugging the 100 fathom line, which follows the coast at about 5 to 6 miles off the beach.

The 2 days Adolfo and deckhand Adolfo Jr. fished with a client from France just about tells the whole story. Two days ago (Tuesday), they made the long run to Puerto Vicente Guerrero. The further south they went, the cleaner the water got along the beach. They found the roosters big time, raising 28 with the client catching and releasing 14.

Yesterday, because the 66 year old angler was so worn out from the roosters the day before, they chose the blue water. But that plan backfired, because it blew wide open on them at 9 miles. By 11:00 they were back at the dock, having released 5 sailfish, hooked 7 twenty pound class dorado, and catching 5 of them. They never had a bait in the water for longer than 5 minutes before they were bit again. The client is taking 2 days off to recover and will fish again on Saturday.
