HOPES FOR DORADO FISHING RISE AS RAIN DEBRIS WASHES OUT OF RIVERS
Aug. 21, 2004, Ed Kunze, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico fishing report:
Conditions remain fairly unchanged for the last two weeks. Ixtapa Zihuatanejo dorado are still a no show, but we are finally getting some of over due rains to wash material out of the rivers to help hold the dorado. The added benefit of our late evening rains is it really cools things down a bit.
We are still getting an average of 2 to 3 sailfish a day per Ixtapa Zihuatanejo fishing boat, and the 25 pound class tuna are at the 15 mile mark.
The big action is still with the roosterfish and jack crevalle. The roosters are 4 to 6 fish a day, averaging 35 to 45 pounds.
What the smaller jacks lose in size (averaging about 10 to 12 pounds), they make up for in quantity. 50 fish days are not uncommon if you want to target them.
