Z Fish Report (9/27/12)


The 82° blue water is still basically following the 100 fathom line about 5 miles off the beach, and all up and down the coast. The sailfish action was slow this week, and will not get any better next week due to the full moon period. The boats are accounting for a few dorado though.

Don and Mary Grantges, with fishing partner H. C. Lee (all from Arlington, Texas) fished the blue water with Cheva this last Monday, and had a typical blue water day. They got a nice dorado at the color break, and not even a strike after that. They worked the areas out to 12 miles, and then back again.

On Tuesday they fished the inshore with Cheva, and here is what Don emailed me:

with Cheva
Yesterday, we went down to the antennas and beyond before we found the roosters. We caught nine Roosters and maybe lost another four or five. I was casting and H C was trolling with live bait. We were having good luck on the Rangers and poppers. I think the Rangers caught more.

When everyone was tired from catching roosters and casting we headed back looking for some small game action with the black skipjack tuna. Then we spotted birds around the Solitary Rock outside of Z harbor and got into the jacks. The biggest jack crevalle was 24#. We also caught a nice Sierra, and we are having ceviche today. We plan to go up to Troncones tomorrow with Cheva.. Looking for more Sierras.
