Z Fish Report (7/18/13)

Heath Hook with his 50 pound rooster

The 84° blue water has not changed in the last three weeks and is out about 6 miles, following the 100 fathom curve, with clean water just off the beach. 

Offshore, the boats are averaging 2 to 3 sailfish a day each.

Most of the action starts from about 6 miles, and then on out to 14 miles. Several small dorado have been taken, but the water is just too warm for the blue marlin and yellowfin tuna.

We are getting some night time rains, which helps to cool things off, but no serious deluges. Many people are unaware of how the “rain season” here on the West Coast of Mexico really works, so I have included the following link to an article I wrote explaining it better. The main thing is we do not get the monsoon rains many people envision, and they are missing out on a lot of excellent fishing because of their lack of knowledge.

Canyon, he is now in Ontario, Canada fishing for walleye
muskie and pike. Am I jealous?...Yup

Dania's rooster

The inshore action is still great, especially for roosterfish. Spin fishing clients Heath and Dania Hook of Houston, Texas went down to Puerto Vicente Guerrero for a day of inshore fishing. We did excellent, catching 7 roosters from 25 pounds up to 50 pounds, and 5 jack crevalle from 10 to 18 pounds. For Heath, an experienced saltwater fisherman, these were his first roosters. He is now a firm believer in the roosterfish; its beauty, excitement, and fighting abilities.

A very worthy deed Heath and Dania did was to bring down and distribute school supplies for the kids in the village of Puerto Vicente. The kids all got much needed boxes of colored and lead pencils. Plus, even a soccer ball and pump for them to play with. The older kids were more excited about the soccer ball, because they did not have one. The middle aged ones were excited about the colored pencils, and the youngest probably liked best the Tootsie-Roll suckers passed out to everyone. But, as Heath said, “I have been to a lot of countries in the world, including time in India. For kids.. soccer, school supplies, and candy are universal”.
