SOME ROOSTERFISH AND JACK CREVALLE CAUGHT BY INSHORE BOATS
Sept. 16, 2005, Ed Kunze, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
The fishing at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo has remained unchanged for the last several weeks. It is poor fishing for the offshore species, and fairly decent inshore for the roosterfish and big jack crevalle. The 84 to 86 degree blue water is about twelve miles out, but the game fish are not around.
Adolpho, on the panga Dos Hermanos, went 34 miles and had only one hooked sailfish and one other strike. Very few Ixtapa Zihuatanejo sportfishing boats are getting more than 1 sailfish a day.
The roosterfish action is averaging about three fish per boat.
The Ixtapa Zihuatanejo fishing area did have a couple of days this week where the surf was very high from offshore storms. This makes it difficult to get in close to the shore break to properly present a bait to the roosters. As our rain season winds down over the next couple of weeks, there should be an improvement with our inshore fishing conditions.
