Getting back out there we found the water had cooled and become off color. The fish didn't mind the change in conditions and the chaos continued right where it had left off. It has been limits, limits and more limits.
Most of the fish we have been catching have been plugged with market squid. I'm metering bait everywhere and believe that has been key. The game fish don't read the books that say they should be in clean warm water and are on the bait even when the water is cold and ugly. The dorado have not schooled up yet but we have managed several nice solo fish. There have been a large volume of marlin between La Ribera and Pescadero and we saw our first sailfish of the season.
On another note, we have been sighting an extraordinary amount of sea turtles and several pacific manta rays but humpback whales have been noticeably absent which is unusual for this time.
Now, the weatherman says it is going to blow for a week and put a crimp in our action. It will be back to the porch watching and waiting for another break.
