Well, we had some guys out this week, and they did OK on dorado for January, but it wasn't much to write home about, even though I am. The captain that they fished with, Captain Efrain, just left the office after collecting his well earned recompense, and when I talked to him I started to get a little jazzed. He reported to me that even though the sardines at the island are small,they are there. There is a school of mullet snapper (pargo liso) at Punta Perico. While this has been the norm historically, it didn't happen last year. He also has some friends fishing commercially that have started to take a few yellow tail at the spots that the earliest every year show up. By me, this is great news. The north winds have cooled the water down sufficiently that we seem to be on track for a much more normal year and as you know, normal years down here are pretty damn good.
We've been keeping an eye on this stuff for a couple of decades now and have a pretty good eye for what means what in terms of weather, water temps, tides and such. No Terry, I can't tell you what you will catch on May 14th, between 10:30 AM and 10:47 AM. Even if I could, I wouldn't take the mystery and thrill that fishing here can provide away from you.
AMUSE THE IMAGINATION,
