SOME DORADO ARE MIXED WITH SAILFISH AND TUNA
Dec. 31, 2004, Larry Edwards, Cortez Yacht Charters, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
The sailfish action continued to be good and fair catches of yellowfin tuna and dorado (mahi-mahi) were available this week for the offshore waters. The inshore action continued at about the same pace as last week, with the better roosterfish catches coming from north of Zihuatanejo Bay. The skippers reported very good chances at the sailfish with averages at about 3 per boat day and 6-8 rises.
