Water Temperature: Our water condition continue to be almost perfect.

 

Air Temperature:  We started the week with a day of heavy rain, just for a couple hours, with this we had a lot of humid for the rest of the week, so seems to be hotter, but you can cool off in the pool.

 

Fishing Spots and Distance: Distance up to 40 miles out means longer boat rides for tuna but  closer is plenty action for billfish.

 

Off-shore Fishing: A bite of everything billfish, mostly football tuna, dorado still the same, everywhere and no-where. 

 

In-shore Fishing: Good action of pargo during this week, also some jacks, and cabrillas in the area.

 

Bait Used: Sardine, caballitos, mullets and ballyhoo, not a problem for bait in the area.

 

Highlight of the Week: Gulf Grouper of 123 lbs a record for the International Gamefish Association.

 

 

See you next week!!!
