Water Temperature:  There some currents getting to the 80, but our thermometer show that most of our water is in the high 70's.

Air Temperature:  Weather continued to be nice early in the week, but by the end of it, you can feel that the temperature and the humidity is definitely raising.    

Fishing Spots and Distance: Our fleet has being going South mostly, I went out with Mr. Duchane this past Sunday on the Vagabundo with Jose, and we easily cruised for about 2 hours. It was a far ride and there were a lot of fish there (In front of Las Destiladeras) about 35 miles South. Don't be alarm not everyone is going that far and some are staying closer and with a lot of success to. Liliana with Marcos ventured North and caught some dorados, not many of them, we also land one lonely dorado.   

Off-shore Fishing: There are a lot of marlin out there, but getting them to take the bait is totally a different thing, still most of our boats going after them, they don't come with their hands empty, some luckier than others. Tuan continues to be during the whole week, not big but plenty, still one day they will find them the next day they disappear, and  then again to be found the next day. Dorado there are some around and we caught a beautiful 55 lbs and some in the 40 lbs range, but don't come down with the idea that you are going to go back with an ice chest full of them. There were some wahoo bites, and Vicente lost an 80 lbs almost at gaff range. There are wahoo around but they are hitting when you least expect it and most of the time when you don't have the right leader, and we all know what happens when this occurs.   

In-shore Fishing:  Mr. Gikkas and family from Sta. Rosa, CA while fishing with Juan Diego and after getting on the pontoon boat, moved about 100 feet from the dock and started fishing with the fly, I was on the beach and I could see them getting hooked and un-hooked by the minute, they stayed there for a while before continue with their trip. Well this is really good, but it has mostly being that way all around our beautiful bay, it would be a sin not to bring light tackle if you are coming soon.

Successful Lures:  On Sunday when I went out we were only being hit on a chivato color, but I was talking to the captain    

Bait Used:  We have been ok on the bait, our guest really like to have the possibility of ballyhoo, because they have a different option. 

Highlight of the Week:  Lots of striped marlin, but lots of bait too. Mr. Smith and Mr. Sidney visiting us from England released 18 marlin on 6 days of fishing, they had a day with 5 marlin. They weren't able to break their previous record, but they went back home happy with the 5 marlin on one day.

See you next week!
