BLUE WATER IS 6 ONLY MILES OUT OF BAY BUT FISHING SLOW
Oct. 29, 2005, Ed Kunze, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico Fishing Report:
Clean 82 degree fish water is only 6 miles off the beach at Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, but the blue water species have yet to turn on.
Ixtapa Zihuatanejo sportfishing boats are still only averaging about 1 sailfish a day each. However, a few nice 20 to 25 pound class dorado are being caught each day.
Hans Clausen of Denmark fished with Santiago on the panga Gitana for three days this week. Hans is the president of the European Federation of Sea Anglers and is here with a small group of people to sample our fishing.
On the first day Hans got 8 large jack crevalle, a sailfish on the second day, and a couple of nice roosters, with several more jacks, on the third day.
