BIG ROOSTERFISH TO 42 POUNDS CAUGHT AT TRONCONES
Nov. 7, 2004, Ed Kunze, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
The 82-degree blue water has moved out to about 20 miles from Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. This has definitely affected Ixtapa Zihuatanejo fishing, but most of the boats are making the run to get there.
Ixtapa Zihuatanejo sailfish action has slowed to about only 1 or 2 fish a day per boat. But there has been an added bonus of a current line at 18 miles, with each boat scoring on 1 or 2 dorado in the 15 to 20-pound class.
Even though we did not have many chances at fish, on separate days, fly fishing clients Jim Evans of Texas and Andrew Veit of Denver each hooked one of the two sailfish we raised. Andrew lost his after he fought it for almost two minutes and the fish threw the hook. Jim lost his when the fish was doing some spectacular aerobatics and, like a razor blade, cut the fly line after the leader got body wrapped.
Ixtapa Zihuatanejo roosterfish action is still outstanding, with the panga "Cobra" taking five roosterfish from 30 to 42 pounds near Troncones.
