Z Fish Report (8/2/12)

Adolfo last week

The blue water moved out a bit with the rain we had this last week, but the 85 degree blue water is still hugging the 100 fathom line, and only about 5 miles off the beach. The sailfish action dropped off a bit, but mostly because of the full moon period. We still are not getting any dorado, yellowfin tuna, nor marlin.

Capt. Francisco had a good day on the Huntress II with Court Koontz from New Mexico catching and releasing a couple of nice Roosterfish and some Jacks and Bonito up North off the beach at Troncones

The main action is the roosterfish and an incredible bite of large jack crevalle. Steve Rothenberger, with his 75 year old Dad and Troy Heuer (all from Pennsylvania), with his son fished 3 days Temo on the panga Sequestra Amor and Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos. They only got about 8 roosters between them in the three days of fishing, but they got so many large jack crevalle in the 18 to 25 pound range, it was arm numbing. Steve told me at one point; it was a guaranteed hookup with every cast, with as many as 6 to 8 of the huge jacks slashing the surface popper.

The highlight of their trip was when Steve and his Dad went down to Puerto Vicente with me as the guide and Adolfo Jr. as deckhand. They hooked 17 roosters. A couple broke the light line next to the boat, and another was a long release after a few minutes of fight, but they were all hooked, and several more were missed.
