WATER FISHING WATER TEMPERATURES UP TO 84 DEGREES
Oct. 20, 2005, Ed Kunze, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
Things sure have turned around in the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo fishing area since the heavy rains from the remnants of tropical storm Stan hit us two weeks ago. I was sure they would take a turn for the better, because we are now out of the rain season, and getting back into a normal pattern.
The inshore waters are approaching 80 degrees again and the fishing reflects it.
Adolpho, on the panga Dos Hermanos, got 7 roosters for his client, and a couple of large jacks. They fished the antennae area near Petalan. Most of the fish were taken by casting large surface poppers. A few were taken slow trolling a live bait.
The blue water is still ways offshore, but the 84 degree water is closer in. Santiago on the panga Gitana is doing about the average, with three sailfish released for his client for two days of fishing. As we come out of the full moon cycle, the blue water fishing shall also improve dramatically.
