Z Fish Report (6/24/11)

With the tropical storm Beatriz leaving behind 20 inches of rain in three days in the Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo area, it is surprising there was any fishing at all this week. However, the fishing has been so good this last few weeks, it wasn’t going to be deterred by a little rain. What is amazing is the 85 degree blue water was not pushed out off the beach. Normally, with the huge river outflows of fresh water, the blue water is pushed beyond the 30 mile mark after a large storm.

The sailfish action is still only averaging a fish per boat per day, but again most boats are chasing the yellowfin tuna. And the inshore is still incredible, with the roosterfish still averaging 7 per boat per day.
Big Eye Jack

Prior to the rains, I fished with Mason and Gordon Krantz of Texas down at Puerto Vicente Guerrero, with Jose Pino at the helm and Adolfo Jr. as the deckhand. We got a nice big eye crevalle and a large jack crevalle. Plus, we hooked three other roosters and lost them. One of the roosters was huge.

After the rains, Southern Californian Rick (Ricky) Grandy and friends chartered Adolfo and Cheva for two days to fish on the two Dos Hermanos pangas. On Wednesday the two boats had 24 roosters, and 4 large jacks. On Thursday Cheva went for yellowfin tuna and got 12, with 4 skipjack (oceananicos). Then they came back inshore for 8 more jack crevalle. Adolfo got 11 roosters.
