Z Fish Report (12/1/11)

The blue water is almost on the beach with the surface temperatures about 81° inside the 100 fathom line (about 6 miles off the beach) and then averaging about 84° from there on out. Ideal conditions all around.

And, the sailfish action is heating up also. Gord Roberts fished with Noe on the panga Porpy for one day in the blue water. Out of 4 strikes they caught two, and Gord puts the blame on himself for not catching three. He said Noe let him try and set the hook. As he found out, it really is not as easy as the deckhands and captains make it look. They also got a nice dorado, which was invited to dinner that night.

Mecate, on the cruiser Aqua Azul, has been fishing this last three days with Mike Garrett and Steve Davidson of Arkansas. The 1st day they did not have much action except inshore on the way back. They caught about 40 black skipjack tuna (barrilettes). Mecate told me there is serious tonnage of the black skipjack tuna out there. The second day they got a couple of sailfish.


The dorado invited to dinner and prepared 6 different
ways at Puerta del Sol by Gabby.
As Gord explained, "it ws as good as it looks".
 Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, persisted and has been still been going north, even though we had limited luck last week fly fishing, Adolfo can read the water and the currents. He is getting about 5 roosters a day up there now on conventional gear with his french clients. They are not huge, but they thery are decent.
