Water Temperature:  With rain left by Iselle cooled the water down a little this week, but everything came back to normal by the end of the week, as our captains where finding water up to the 89 degrees. And this week was not shown the number of dorado, but this is what is good about September, they will soon come.  

Weather Temperature: Rain also cooled down the environment, but it also made with just a little more humidity, but it help this week as Angel reported that not one day we went over the 100's mark.   

Fishing Spots and Distance: 

Off-shore fishing.- This week it was time for the guys to team up and go fishing. Yes, this week we hosted our 9th Annual Collaborators Tournament, everyone fishes, Norma, Loredana, Ricardo, Ramiro, Cirilo, and also all the captains, but this time they are the guests and the captain at the moments has to do what the guest mandate, it is time for a lot of fun and good fellowship. They all of course go for the biggest fish. This week with Iselle going by,  fishermen and fisherwomen didn't have much luck with the big blues. Captains where running down South mostly if not all. From the light house to Cabo Frailes. Some blues came in later on the week when the water came back to normal. Dorado fishing was a little slower than it was weeks past and mostly also due to the water conditions, but those who come next week will do just great. Tuna, more tuna was found this week and closer, but the tuna continues to be a hit and miss. 

In-shore fishing.- The high tides didn't help much this week, but it did recover later on the week. Still, inshore species continue to be the most consistent fishing of all. 

Successful lures: The lures that are hitting are those with darker colors..

Bait Used: Bait guys had some trouble getting sardine early in the week of the swells, but everything came back to normal later on the week.

Highlight of the Week:  Guillermo Acevedo, the receptionist caught a 197 lbs blue marlin, he is heading the competitions. Wahoo came in strong this week for those who went out to fish for them. They are there it is a matter of taking some time to find them.   

See you next week!!!
