Z Fish Report (6/5/13)


The 81° blue water is still only 3 miles off the beach. Offshore we are seeing sailfish, dorado, yellowfin tuna, and blue marlin in the daily catches. Plus, there are a lot of small dorado in the catches. But, we have few fishermen to give a decent report.
A nice 40 pound rooster refracted in the sunlight/water.
The inshore action is still excellent for roosters. Plus, we are still averaging at least 5 different species each trip out, with large roosterfish being the main target. Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, has had three pangas out all this week with his group of French clients. He is fishing to the south towards Petatlan, with roosters of over 40 pounds being taken on each panga.
Pelicans, terns, cormorants, and frigates were all feasting on the
sardines cast up on the shore today with the high waves 
Today (Thursday), before I was writing this report up, I was at Playa Blanca. The huge surf was incredible. Santiago asked me if I had heard about the huge surf today, which I said I had seen in person… and, Adolfo said it was like tsunamis all day long.
