Do you eat fish?
If you do, inshore fishing is better than ever. As Mahi-mahi and Tuna are not really out there, smoked fish lovers will be more than satisfied with the abundance of Spanish mackerel. Ojaran III and Ojaran II have had more than seventy mackerels in the last month. You can also have some snappers, jacks and in a big quantity, fun to catch but not eatable, Roosterfish. Talking about offshore action, Sailfish is on the top. Ojaran II has released five Sailfish on the first seven days of the month. Ojaran III has had thirteen. A few Marlin and a few Mahi have been caught.
Extreme weather changes have been affecting water temperature. This is a The La Niña Phenomenon year. The La Nina is usually described as a cooler than average sea surface temperature in this area of the Pacific. The La Nina phenomenon is known to occur every few years in this area and beyond, and it is known to last anywhere from a few months to as long as two years or so. Some fish like Dorado, need warmer water temperatures.
Those Lucky Days.
Captain Junior and mate Alex caught 1 Marlin, 4 Sailfish and 2 Dorado on January 29th. Captain Mike and mate Joseph caught a 65 pounds Yellow Fin Tuna on February the 5th. Ojaran II had a broken rod when a huge Manta ray pulled like a bull in a split second. (Sorry Mike).
