Z Fish Report (11/17/11)

The blue water is about 6 miles off the beach and hugging the 100 fathom line all up and down the coast. And the surface temperature of the water is varying from “cool” 83° to a very warm 87°, with an average about of 85°. These are excellent sailfish and dorado conditions. And, the blue water mfishing has been improving as we come out of the full moon period. With the new moon occurring next week during the Thanksgiving weekend, we are anticipating excellent blue water fishing, and hopefully a few people vacationing here to enjoy it.
This week Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos got a sailfish and a small blue marlin for his client for his one day in the blue water. Francisco, on the panga Huntress, with his client from Denmark, went 10 miles SW yesterday (Wednesday) with 4 sailfish strikes and releasing 2. Other members of the Danish group are reporting about the same action, with several nice dorado thrown in.

Cheva and Adolfo on the Dos Hermanos pangas have mostly fishing the inshore. The water is still a bit too stained for the roosters to be active, but they are doing well on large jack crevalle.
