Jacks for Zih-What and Sails in Guatemala
Aug 21st, 2004, 7:47am
IN GENERAL:  Conditions remain fairly unchanged for the last two weeks. The dorado are still a no show, but we are finally getting some of overdue rains to wash material out of the rivers to help hold the dorado. The added benefit of our late evening rains is it really cools things down a bit.  
We are still getting an average of 2 to 3 sailfish a day per boat, and the 25-pound class tuna are at the 15 mile mark.  
The big action is still with the roosterfish and jack crevalle. The roosters are 4 to 6 fish a day, averaging 35 to 45 pounds.
What the smaller jacks lose in size (averaging about 10- to 12-pounds), they make up for in quantity. Fifty fish days are not uncommon if you want to target them.
Baja on the Fly’s, "Jacks or Better Fly Fishing Tournament" Oct. 6-10 still has a few openings.  http://www.bajafly.com/jacksorbetter.htm

With few clients around, the locals have the action all to themself and are finding good sailfish action within an hour of the harbor. Add a few tuna and dorado to the count and there are plenty of smiles all around. Inshore, the roosterfish are ready and waiting though few boats are targeting them.
