Adolfo and Cheva on the two Dos Hermanos boats have both been going north to the areas from Pantla to Salidita and even up to the Ranch. They have been doing excellent on dorado, the hard fighting jacks, and a few roosters.
Wednesday, with fly fishing clients David Knowles and Fred Pfaffle of Portland Oregon, I decided to go south to Puerto Vicente Guerrero. After clearing the point, we went even further south to a couple of rocky high spots I know which come to within 25 feet of the surface, and are about a mile off the beach. It was incredible! There were acres of breaking fish. There were rainbow runners, large sierras, jack crevalle, green jacks, black skipjack tuna, etc.
Within the first 10 minutes, and before the instruction time was over for first time saltwater fisherman Dave, he was hooked on to a huge fish. With Adolfo Jr. teasing, and Jose Pino running the boat, all we saw was about an 8” wide back of golden brown as the fish turned and ate the fly. From the way it went to the bottom, and pulled the panga wherever he went, it had to be about a 50 pound pargo; which would have been a world record for the fly rod, on any pound class tippet.
