Sailfish Break Out
Dec 18th, 2004, 8:31am
IN GENERAL:  The November/December issue of the IGFA’s “International Angler” newsletter features recently appointed IGFA Representative Ed Kunze. Congratulations.  That brings the total to three IGFA Representatives from Baja on the Fly including Yvonne and I.  
The blue water is only a couple of miles off the beach and the fishing is close. The fishing for sailfish has been very good. Paul Phillips of Westbank, British Columbia fished 3 short days with Adan on the panga “Gitana II” this week. They never fished more than three hours each day with Paul tagging and releasing 10 sailfish.  
Richard Boselly of Mission Viejo, Calif., fished four miles out of Zihuatanejo Bay with Captain Cali on the panga “Zapitito Gordo.” They were back at the dock before noon with 4 sailfish releases.  
There were two great days on the water on the “Vamonos II” for Doug Murphy of New Jersey. The first day his group of three released 6 sailfish. The second day they fished for two hours and then went to Ixtapa Island. They were back after only 5 hours including spending time snorkeling at Ixtapa Island.  While they waited, one of the two 45-pound dorado was being prepared for lunch.  
The best inshore fishing is for roosterfish and jack crevalle down at Puerto Vicente Gro. They are hitting poppers and flies. Richard Boselly was there for a couple of days early in the week with Cali. They had a blast on big roosters and jacks with poppers and spin gear.

Baja on the Fly's Zihuatanejo report by Ed Kunze  
IN GENERAL:  We didn’t receive a report this week and have to assume that they are all out whacking ’em.  
LAST WEEK:  This past week the fishing has blown wide open in Guatemala and is as hot as it gets! Many boats are experiencing more than 50 releases per day, and several are having personal best days.  One boat also had 27 releases on the fly.  A few marlin have made showings, but have been difficult, and dorado are around.  The weather has been great overall, and those guys that have come down fishing are all smiles after they recover from the non-stop action.  If the action holds, this should be one incredible season that you won’t want to miss!
