Fished with Santiago and Adan on the super panga
Gitana for 3 days releasing this sailfish
|Friend Ken also got involved. They released 1 sailfish and |
caught 12 dorado in the 3 days they fished with Santiago
The inshore waters have been clearing up from the hard rains we had last week, with good roosterfish and jack crevalle action. Plus, the bait is back at Barra Potosi, and the large jacks are there too. It is a great time to take the spin outfit or the fly rod, and kick back with a cool one and some appetizers under the shade of one of the palapas. You are just waiting for the birds to start diving and the jacks to come a crashing. I really like that kind of fishing, at least until I hook up. I then immediately start frantically looking around for somebody to reel it in. Jacks are a lot of work.

Adolfo, on the panga, Dos Hermanos, has primarily been fishing down near the Petatlan area, with his clients averaging 5 to 6 roosters a day. But, the inshore day is often cut short as they head out to the blue water and pick up some nice dorado before going back to port.
