Z Fish Report (6/7/12)
With the blue water hugging the coast about 2 miles off the beach, and the surface temperature’s reading as warm as 85°, the conditions are ideal for sailfish and dorado. But, they are not here. Even the commercial pangeros, making runs of 40 miles or more, are not finding many fish. These are the guys, being they are not paid a guaranteed day on the water by a client, who must catch fish or they do not have fuel money to go out again tomorrow. I much prefer to fish in an area where there are a couple of commercial pangeros than in an area with 4 to 6 sport boats.
However, the rooster fishing is excellent. Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, told me there are huge numbers of fish down south near Petatlan in the area he has been fishing. And, from the amount of roosters we raised one day last week (20) with a short run to the north, you can bet they are all up and down the coast. Each boat is averaging at least 4 nice roosters a day, plus several smaller jack crevalle.
