Zihuatanejo and Guatemala Sizzle
Aug 14th, 2004, 3:10pm
IN GENERAL:  Conditions and fishing remain unchanged from the last couple of weeks. We are still not getting any rain to push debris out of the rivers and hold the dorado. The heat and humidity are fairly severe, but will cool off as the late August and September rains kick in.  
The 80º plus blue water is only a few minutes run off the beach and most boats are averaging two to three sailfish per day. The 15- to 30-pound tuna are still at the 10 mile mark and providing good light line action.
Inshore, the incredible roosterfish and jack crevalle bite is still holding up. There are few fishermen, but the boats that do target them are averaging between 4 and 6 of the 30- to 45-pound roosters a day.  
Baja on the Fly’s, "Jacks or Better Fly Fishing Tournament" Oct. 7-10 still has a few openings.  http://www.bajafly.com/jacksorbetter.htm

Baja on the Fly's Zihuatanejo report by Ed Kunze
Quite a few boats went out this week, most of them with owners and their families, but there were a couple of clients who also came down. The fishing has been out about 30-35 miles.  The weather is hot! Not much rain lately, just real calm.  The fishing has been pretty good, considering it's low season.  They have been raising10-15 sailfish a day per boat on the days they went out, with a couple dorado scattered throughout.  Great conditions inshore for roosterfish.
