SEAS ROUGH AT SAN AGUSTINILLO BUT SOME TUNA CAUGHT
Jan. 7, 2006, Eric Weissman, Explore Fly Fishing, San Agustinillo, Huatulco, Mexico Sportfishing Report:
The ocean is looking really rough today, but the guys got into some big yellowfin tuna this morning. The sea became very rough as a northeaster blew in. I hear they closed Huatulco and Salina Cruz ports.
The water is cooling off and clearing, a bit cloudy, between 75 to 85 degrees, with strong currents and flat seas. This will change by the new moon. There are tons of fish, everywhere. Lots of tunny, black skipjack, yellowfin, skipjack, sailfish, marlin, sierra are everywhere. Jack crevalle and other jacks are present in good numbers.
There are lots of whales, sea turtles and porpoises. Giant red snapper are being caught on the hand lines, full of red haiva crabs, some fish up to 20 pounds.
