Title: Zihuatanejo and Guatemala Conditions
Post by bajafly on Jul 10th, 2004, 7:47am

IN GENERAL:  The 80º blue water is still close inshore, but the sailfish fishing has tapered off some from the last couple of weeks. A lot of this can probably be attributed to the moon phase. As we go into the dark phase, I am very certain the blue water fishing should pick up.

As it is, each boat has been releasing 1 or 2 sailfish a day, and the numbers of dorado hitting the dock are increasing.

Captain Cali and I were beach fishing yesterday (Fri.) out at Buena Vista.  I was using my 10-weight and Cali had light tackle spin gear. We were getting a lot green jacks, a few small jack crevalle, and an occasional barrilete. We watched Arturo on the panga “Whisky III” work the back side of the surf line with a couple of clients. Right in front of us they had a double on a pair of 45-pound roosters.  They lifted them up for a photo, and then released them.

In other words, the roosterfish action is still hot.

IN GENERAL:  Several boats ventured out last week, and they were after the abundant tuna.  They ended up with lots of yellowfin tuna and even more dorado.  The blue water is back and has moved in close with the run being about 12-15 miles.  The weather has been nice with cloudy conditions, but no rain.
