Z Fish Report (5/23/13)

With 81°water returning to the inshore and along the beaches, and the 84 to 85° water hugging the 100 fathom line at 5 miles, the fishing has been improving. But, with a reverse parody, there are fewer fishermen here to take advantage of all the options present now.

The offshore fishing is seeing a couple of sailfish per boat caught per day, a few dorado are showing, with both striped and blue marlin being taken. And, the small yellowfin tuna are still hanging around the 1,000 fathom curve.

Jim McKenna of New York fished 3 days this week in the blue water with Santiago on the super panga Gitana. They released 6 sailfish, 1 striped marlin (estimated at 140 pounds) and 10 football yellowfin tuna.

Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, reports good inshore action for all areas north and south. The water is warm and clear, and the roosters are back.  When I was talking to him on his cell phone while typing this report, they were into heavy sierra and jack crevalle action up at Troncones.
