Z-What Roosters Swarm
Aug 7th, 2004, 9:21am
 

ZIHUATANEJO, MAINLAND MEXICO  
IN GENERAL:  The 80º plus blue water is still holding only a mile off the beach. Most species are biting, with the exception of the blue marlin (the water is too warm), and dorado. The dorado are missing because the rainfall this last few weeks has been below normal and we have not had much debris washed out of the rivers to hold them.
 
Most every boat fishing the blue water is averaging between 2 and 3 sailfish per day. Plus, the added bonus of school-sized yellowfin tuna that are only out 10 miles, and are biting.  
 
Inshore, there are a lot of jack crevalle; and light line anglers have been scoring up to 50 a day on these hard fighting fish.
 
The big news is still just off the surf line with the roosterfish action. The bite is fantastic, and has been holding up for several weeks now. We expect this action to continue on into Dec. It should really make for a great "Jacks or Better Fly Fishing Tournament" Oct. 7-10 for Baja on the Fly. Contact Gary or Yvonne if you want to know more about this first ever (and IGFA approved) tournament. http://www.bajafly.com/jacksorbetter.htm  
 
Adolpho, on the panga “Dos Hermanos” caught 6 roosters for his clients yesterday, between 35 and 45 pounds. But the one they did not get was the real story. They were using a surface popper on spinning gear, casting into breaking bait, with birds diving and roosters crashing the surface. One cast was laid over the wing of a pelican. Naturally, the pelican was startled and flew off, but he wrapped the line by making a turn and heading in another direction. What happened was incredible! The pelican flew a few feet off the water and was "trolling" the popper. Up to 5 different roosters grabbed the popper, dragged the pelican back down to the water, and then came unbuttoned . . . to just start the process all over again. That was one very confused bird!  
 
It must have been a hell of a sight, and where is a video camera when you need it?
