Jacks or Better Begins This Week
Oct 2nd, 2004, 8:23am
 
ZIHUATANEJO, MAINLAND MEXICO  
 
IN GENERAL:  The 80º blue water is still holding a few miles off the beach, and the current lines with debris washed out of the rivers, are still well defined.  
 
The full moon did slow down the sailfish fishing, with only an average of about one or two per boat being caught per day. Steve Carlson, from the Los Angeles area, fished on the “Vamonos II” for five strikes from sailfish in the spread, but managed to only hooked and release one.  
 
The 20 to 35 pound dorado are still holding in the current lines, and most boats are getting two or three per day.  
 
The inshore action for roosters and jack crevalle is heating up as the water turbidity clears. We are still getting some river runoff from nightly rains in the Sierra, but the flows have slowed a bit, discharging less silt than the past few weeks.  
 
The Jacks or Better Charity Tournament and Guide Challenge begin on Wed. Many of the participants will begin arriving tomorrow (10/3) to pre-fish and practice for the event. The Guide Challenge has attracted interesting field of guides from across the US. They all are joining us in search of the “Endless Season” and the honor of being named the top Zihuatanejo Guide of 2004, not to mention the $1,000 that goes with the title. We will provide daily updates beginning Thurs. (10/7)

Finally!  It’s October, so let the games begin. Sailfish have been gathering for the past two weeks chewing on schools of baitfish outside of 30 miles. All we need now are the big game saltwater fly-fishers who want to play tug-o-war with a 100- to 150-pound screaming billfish to complete the mix.
