Go Fly A Kite in Zihuatanejo
Sep 18th, 2004, 7:37pm
IN GENERAL:  There has not been much change in the last few weeks for fishing. The 80 blue water has moved out to about 6 miles due to a few rainstorms we got in the last couple of days.  
There is still a very distinct lack of fishermen, but this is normal for this time of the year. Each boat fishing the blue water is getting at least a couple of sailfish a day. A few dorado are starting to show, and with last night's rainstorm recording 5 inches in my gauge, the flows out of the river should push enough debris out to hold the dorado here. The dorado action should really pick up in the next couple of weeks.
However, the high river flows do have a drawback. The silty water tends to hug the coast line and is shutting down the outstanding roosterfish bite we have had for several months now.  The roosters are still there, it is just very difficult to get them to see the baits in the dirty water. Hookless teasers skimming the surface on my kite rig seem to be the best bet to find the roosters right now. A 60 foot cast with a fly, and it is an instant hookup.  
There is still outstanding jack crevalle action inside Zihuatanejo Bay. Felipe, on the panga Yellowfin took a tour around the bay this morning to drain the water from his panga by pulling the plug. As he was motoring along, he felt he might as well troll a Rapalla. It paid off. In less than 20 minutes he had drained his boat of water, and had an 18 pound jack on the deck.
