SPORT FISH SCATTER IN UNSTABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS
June 11, 2004, Larry Edwards, Cortez Yacht Charters, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Information:
With unstable weather at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, the fish became a bit more scattered and more difficult to find, yet some days produced some good results.
Mr. Bob Blackman's group, fishing with Captain Cheva on the "Dos Hermanos II", landed 6 sailfish and lost another 6 on a fly in one day offshore. Avid fly angler, Miles McFall, fishing aboard our newest Ixtapa Zihuatanejo super panga, Seriena", with Captain Erik & first mate Kenny, had 11 sailfish teased to the boat, hooking 5 for 3 days fishing.
Captain Chiro, aboard the "Vamonos III", reported 5 sailfish hookups for 2 offshore fishing days, with the biggest just over 100 lbs., caught by Texas angler, Mr. Carlos.
First time visitors to I/Z, Mr. & Mrs. John Cliff, finished there week aboard the "Dos Hermanos I" by landing 4 sailfish for 1 fishing day. Returning Ixtapa Zihuatanejo angler, Dan Walden, also fishing with Captain Adolfo, landed 10 sailfish, 1 shark and 10 bonitos for 3 offshore days.
Captain Jose on the "La Bamba", reported landing 1 sailfish with client Mr. Merzel, New York. Mr. Steve Takagi's group, fishing aboard the "Moramy", caught 1 sailfish, lost another, and then turned their attention to inshore, scoring 12 roosterfish, 1 bigeye jack and a handful of bonitos, aboard the "Leydy". Ixtapa Zihuatanejo offshore fishing has moved within 7 miles of the beach, but the weather has prevented any consistent fishing from setting up.
