FISHING ACTION IMPROVED BUT STILL SCATTERED
Sept. 2, 2005, Ed Kunze, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
The fishing at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo has picked up a little since last week, but it seems that all species remain fairly scattered. Most Ixtapa Zihuatanejo boats when fishing offshore are averaging between one and two sailfish releases a day. Plus, there have been several very nice 30 to 40-pound dorado hitting the pier every day. This has been expected, since the rains last week created a lot of debris lines.
The smaller school-sized dorado have yet to show at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, but when they do, we should have some outstanding action.
During inshore fishing at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, the roosters and jack crevalle are still going very well, as long as you stay away from the stained water areas the runoff from the rivers has created. The sportfishing charter boats are averaging about three nice roosters, of 30 to 40-pounds per day.
