CHARTER FISHING BOAT DOS HERMANOS II LANDS 10 SAILFISH IN A DAY
Dec. 3, 2004, Larry Edwards, Cortez Yacht Charters, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
Wide open Ixtapa Zihuatanejo fishing continues, both inshore and offshore in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, as near perfect conditions were present this past week.
Leading the offshore fishing, with the best single day, was angler Rick Drake, fishing aboard the "Dos Hermanos II". Captain Cheva led Mr. Drake to 10 sailfish on his first day offshore.
Not far behind was Scott Olson, fishing aboard the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo charter fishing boat "Vamonos II", with Captain Jaime Morales. Mr. Olson landed 7 sailfish for one day.
First time anglers, George & Wendy Catellanos, Los Angeles, CA, fishing aboard the "Gran Jefe", landed 5 sailfish, 3 sharks and 1 yellowfin tuna on their first offshore Ixtapa Zihuatanejo fishing day.
Hosting a group from Europe, under the leadership of Mr. Bourquin, fishing at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo four days and aboard 6 super pangas and the custom sportfisher, "La Bamba", produced excellent results that included 68 sailfish and 23 dorado for the offshore waters and 51 roosterfish, 10 yellowtail jacks, 23 Spanish mackerel, (Sierra) 3 grouper, 8 bonito, and 17 big needlefish. It was truly phenomenal fishing.
The blue water is within a mile of Zihuatanejo bay and action is occurring almost as soon as the boats exit the bay. Inshore, the skippers are reporting a new "hot spot" and the results from this week are very encouraging.
