Z Fish Report (8/15/13)

A leadered sailfish on the panga Gitana

Offshore, other than the water warming up a bit more, the conditions really haven’t changed much in the last couple of weeks. The blue water, averaging about 87°, is hugging the 100 fathom curve at 5 miles. There are still a lot of small dorado at this break line, but no yellowfin tuna anywhere. The boats are averaging about 1 sailfish a day trolling conventional gear baits and lures.
Terry Wolfe and daughter on the Gitana
From Pittsburg, Terry Wolfe and his daughter fished a day with Santiago on the super panga Gitana for two sailfish.
A nice sierra
The inshore action is still slow for roosters and now even the jack crevalle have disappeared. Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, has only been getting sierras, green jacks, and black skipjacks for his clients this week, which are all great fun on spin gear and the fly rod.
