Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico



May 13-19, 2005, Stan Lushinsky, Ixtapa Sportfishing Charters, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:

Offshore action dominated the fishing last week in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. The area received a high tide which affected the ability of sportfishing captains to find and fish for the inshore game fish.

Captain Alex on the Grande Jefe posted the largest Marlin at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo last week caught by angler Anthony Marquex. The Marlin scaled in at 429 pounds. The Landeros family also fishing with Captain Alex landed 1 Roosterfish, 4 Yellowtail Jacks and 7 Bonitos in one day of fishing.

It was our pleasure to host Mr. George Holmes group from New Jersey at the beautiful Casa Las Brisas in Puerto Vincentee Guerrero last week. This is a very special opportunity for angler to fish some new unexplored water 30 miles south of Zihuatanejo Bay while staying in a very affordable Luxury house. The group fished 4 days aboard 5 super pangas, Dos Hermanos 1, Dos Hermanos 2, Secuestro, Grande Jefe, and Janeth.

In those 4 days the group landed the Following: Dos Hermanos 1 - SAILFISH, 5 YELLOWFIN TUNA, 26 YELLOWTAIL JACKS and a handful of Small game. Dos Hermanos 2 - 7 SAILFISH, Secuestro 5 SAILFISH, 10 Bonitos and 2 Yellowtail Jacks, Janeth 6 SAILFISH and 3 YELLOWTAIL JACKS, Grande Jefe 1 BLUE Marlin ( 160 Lbs and lost one other Blue Malrin, 5 Sailfish, 3 Yellowtail Jacks and 8 Bonito.

Keeping pace with the boats down south. Captain Chiro on the Vamonos 3 fishing with angler Mr Woodard for 3 days landed 6 SAILFISH. Traditionally our summer run of Roosterfish should come ashore at any time. We still have some good dates and boats available.

Ixtapa Zihuatanejo weather was sunny with temperatures in the high 80’s. Sea conditions in the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo vacation area were calm to moderate, and the bait supply was good.
