Our local reporter, Captain Temo Verboonen, owner operator of the Secuesto de Amor and Macho Banana, reported only a single marlin landed this pst week and added the comment that no sailfish were reported. The off shore fishing was very difficult, albeit, a few yellowfin tuna were taken at the 20-plus mile mark. The inshore waters offered up a few chulas but for the most part, the fish were very spooky and difficult to catch. Overall, the fish counts continued to be down this past week and the waters remained a bit off colored and cooler than normal.
