Zihuatanejo Improving
Oct 23rd, 2004, 8:38am
IN GENERAL:  The 82º blue water remains close and the fishing is picking up a bit over the last couple of weeks.  
Captain German, of the 31-foot “Bacalao II,” told me this morning he has been fishing five days straight, averaging two to three sailfish and one 20- to 25-pound dorado for each day on the water.  
Captain Poli, on the “Don Gordo I” fished with Scott and Alicia Morrison, with another couple from Houston and released three sailfish and kept one 27 pound dorado.  
No yellowfin tuna were reported this week.
The inshore action has also picked up. The roosterfish bite remains strong, with an average of 4 fish per day taken on poppers or slow trolled live bait. A lot of sierras have moved in, producing great action for both the spin gear and fly-rodders. We are using a 30-pound mono bite tippet on these toothy sierras. The jack crevalle and black skipjack are mixed in with the sierra, getting us more bites than we would by using a wire tippet.

Baja on the Fly's Zihuatanejo report by Ed Kunze  
This past week only two boats ventured out.  They had slow action on sails, managing to only average 5 releases.  The slowing of the action was due to the blue water moving out.  The daily conditions have been good overall, and there is great action on tuna and dorado.  Our boat “Chispudo” managed to pick up 15 tuna and a couple of dorado in a half day trip.  The possibilities for inshore action look great and we have a party coming in from New Jersey that will be sampling both the inshore and offshore action for the next couple of days, so we will have an inshore report next week.  The overall conditions continue to improve as we move into the normal high season.  We still have some availability between now and mid-December if anyone wants to take a last minute trip.
