Z Fish Report (8/29/13)


I am finally launching the Roosterfish Foundation. Please read below for more information.


This last week was mostly about rain. From Sunday evening until Tuesday afternoon, we got 5.5 inches of rain, with a lot of it coming during daylight hours. Even though we had very little wind, this made for tough conditions and we did not go out fishing those days. On Wednesday, the skies cleared again and gave us a day to settle things down. The boats are fishing again today (Thursday).
We get some incredible sunrises after the rains
Surprisingly, the blue water was not pushed out too far, going out to 7 miles, instead of the several weeks long 5 miles. Sometimes, with huge outflows of fresh water coming out of the rivers, the blue water can be pushed out 15 miles or more. Plus, I was at Playa Blanca this morning and saw the inshore waters were fairly clean and not discolored from the runoff. This tells me we have a strong blue water current, able to cleanse things quickly.
On Thursday, John Lorenz' French client,  Aurelien Lagarrosseat Bahia de
Tortuga Fishing Lodge  in PuertoVicente Guerrero,  fished with captain
Rody for a nice sailfish
Offshore the boats should still average about 1 to 2 sailfish a day, with an occasional nice dorado thrown in.

The
inshore action has really picked up for roosters, and is probably the best bet for fishing here. Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, is about the only boat who fished every day during the rain. He finished yesterday with a client from Spain, who fished 10 days straight with him. Adolfo told me there are a lot of roosters, and actually outnumber the jack crevalle caught. Plus, he is getting dorado and sierras just a couple of hundreds off the beach.
