FISHING 5 DAYS ON THE CHARTER BOATS LA BAMBA AND DOS HERMANOS I
July 15, 2005, Dan Yates, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
My son Daniel and I fished 5 days out of Zihuatanejo. It was an incredible father and son fishing trip. We caught 25 fish in 5 days.
We fished July 3, 7 and 8 offshore on La Bamba with Captain Jose Vargas out of Zihuatanejo. In 3 days, we caught 9 sailfish, 1 bonito and 1 wahoo.
We fished July 4 & 6 inshore on Dos Hermanos I with Captain Adolfo Espinosa out of Zihuatanejo. In 2 days, we caught 3 roosterfish, 5 jack crevalles, 5 bonitos and 1 needlefish.
The port was closed on July 5th due to high winds and high seas.
We caught the Jack Crevalles and Rooster fish casting rapalas and trolling live bait. This fishing was about 30 miles south of Zihuatanejo and about 20 miles north of Puerto Vicente Guerrero.
In the offshore fishing, we went out to sea about 20 miles west of Zihuatanejo. We trolled the standard carnadas, not live, to catch the sailfish and wahoo.
