The offshore fishing action for sailfish and dorado went way down as compared to the last couple of weeks, which is confusing as we are in the best moon period of the month. The average is only about 1 sailfish and a dorado per day for each boat. Plus, early this morning we had a 6.1 earthquake roll through the area. It was centered about 100 miles away, so there was no damage, but it is guaranteed to rattle the fish. It will take about 48 hours for the game fish to settle down to a normal pattern again. Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II, did do a bit better than the average. He fished 3 days releasing 2 sailfish a day, and got 2 dorado over the three day span.

Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, has been fishing all week for roosters and getting 3 to 4 a day, plus lot of jack crevalle. He is using spin gear with surface poppers and also live bait.

Michael Smith of Boise Idaho fly fished with Adolfo Jr. and me for two days down at Puerto Vicente Guerrero. The only roosters we found were in the off colored water near a river mouth. We brought 7 roosters to within fly casting distance, but did not get a hook up. We did have a lot of excitement on jack crevalle however.
