SAILFISH PRESENT IN GOOD NUMBERS BUT VIRTUALLY NOBODY IS FISHING
Sept. 12, 2004, Ed Kunze, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing:
The 80-degree blue water still remains very close, and Ixtapa Zihuatanejo fishing remains decent, but there are virtually no fishermen here charting any boats. I do not think we have over two or three charters a day going out.
The few Ixtapa Zihuatanejo vacation area boats that do go however, are averaging two to three sailfish a day. Ixtapa Zihuatanejo inshore action is still holding up with excellent roosterfish and jack crevalle action.
I was at the municipal yesterday, talking to a bunch of the captains who were just standing around and hoping for a someone to contact them for a charter. With so few people fishing, I needed more information for my fish report. Santiago, on the panga Gitana, was giving directions to an American couple for where to get their tickets for the panga taxi ride to Las Gatas Beach. He then turned to me and said, "Well, I guess you are not the only American in town, but they're not fishing". I didn't get any more information either.
