INSHORE FISHING BOATS SCORE ON SNAPPERS AND TRIGGERFISH
June 4, 2005, Gray Palmeter, Vikings Fleet, Mazatlan, Mexico Fishing Report:
Our Deep Sea fishing trips out of Mazatlan this week have been really great with plenty of Sailfish for just about everyone. Many of our boats this week came in with multi catches of the Sailfish along with a few Blue Marlin which have made their way in. The bite on the Dorado slowed down somewhat, but we made up with plenty of catches of Yellowfin Tuna around the 15-25 lb range with an occasional larger Yellowfin.
On our Light Tackle fishing trips at Mazatlan this week, it was great with plenty of Snapper and triggerfish, with a mix of other small game fish. The Roosterfish are here and biting. Most of the time we will catch the Roosterfish when people reserve our boats just to fish for them. This way we can have the boat set up with live bait, and also so our Mazatlan sportfishing captains can fish the areas they know to be great spots for these fish.
