Huatulco Fishing Report



June 16, 2006, Eric Weissman, Explore Fly Fishing, good fishing and new fishing safari package at Huatulco, Mexico:

Until a few days a go the seas around the Huatulco fishing area have been terribly rough and storms blew in quite massively and suddenly. Several boats in the port in Puerto Angel were sunk.

However, during the pockets of reprieve, the fishing at Huatulco has been awesome. Close to our hotel in San Agustinillo, many roosterfish up to 50 and 60 pounds were caught. Multi sailfish days and lots of big dorado and yellowfin are still plentiful, and fish in the 25 to 40 pound range are typical.

I just had four anglers from Colorado go down, and they caught a lot of tuna, big jacks and sails. The other boats on gear and bait got a few nice roosters but apparently my fly fishing guys did not.

Big jack crevalle are being caught tight inshore, together with robalo and roosters, while wahoo and marlin are being sighted or latched onto by many boats.

We have been busy setting up a new sportfishing operation at Puerto Escondido, working from the hotel Villas Carizalillo. The Villas Carizalillo is a beautiful self-contained accommodation on the tropical hills above Playa Carizalillo, next to Puerto Escondido.

Villas Carizalillo features air conditioning, internet, kitchens, and refined furnishings and appointments. The new pool and restaurant as well as the fishing hospitality suites and lounge will be comfortable and inviting.

We are offering fishing packages from both Puerto Escondido and San Agustinillo, and we are about to announce a new coastal fishing safari package, utilizing the accommodations of both locations to house guests and fishing the waters in between them on a daily basis.

This fishing safari will give fishermen an unprecedented opportunity to experience a wide range of species and waters, and to experience both the rustic and upscale hospitality we have to offer.

Water temps are around 82, air temps steady at 82, with constant chance of thunderstorms.
