Look for the Clean Water
Dec 25th, 2004, 6:39am
IN GENERAL:  Clean water is just off the beach and the majority of the  
boats are releasing 3 to 5 sailfish a day. I guided Scott Kelly from  
Juneau, Alaska for fly-fishing with Captain Martin on the panga Isamar.  
Before heading out that morning, from the Terrifin Satellite Surface  
Temperatures chart, I had noticed a well-defined area holding 80.5  
degree water, with the rest of the areas all in a scrambled egg pattern  
of 83 to 85 degree water. The body of cooler water paid off with a huge  
sailfish tagged and released, and a couple of fly-caught yellowfin tuna.  
The sailfish was estimated at 120-pounds and the tuna were football sized.
There are lots of yellowfin here, with the majority of them in the 12-  
to 20-pound size. We did notice schools of 50- to 60-pound fish crashing  
on bait, but they proved to be elusive.
Water Temperature 80-84
Air Temperature 75-86
Humidity 94%
Wind WSW 4 mph
Conditions: Scattered Clouds 8,000 ft
Visibility 10 miles
Sunrise 7:13 a.m. CST
Sunset 6:18 p.m. CST

IN GENERAL:  The anglers who were down Guatemala-way this week  
experienced some tough conditions, but all went away happy.  The overall  
release numbers were down to what other areas experience, at about 3-7  
per day, but dorado action in-close made up for the tough sailfishing.  
All of the boats were able to experience great action with dorado.  Once  
again we had no one fishing inshore.
Water Temperature 78-82
Air Temperature 80-84
Humidity 100 %
Wind South 8 mph  
Conditions:  Clear
Visibility 7 miles
Sunrise 6:23 a.m. CST
Sunset 5:42 p.m. CST
Dec. 26, Full; Jan. 3, Last Quarter; Jan. 10, New; Jan. 16, First Quarter.
