Plus, a few blue marlin have been caught and released. Douglas Schrieiber of Wisconsin fished with Francisco on the super panga Huntress this last Monday releasing one blue marlin, a sailfish, and had three more strikes on sails south/east of Zihuatanejo at the 18 mile mark.

Inshore is still very good for jack crevalle, sierras, and black skipjacks up near Troncones and on above to Saladita.
Yesterday (Wed.) I took fly fishing client Chris Lawson of Anchorage, and his family down to my “sweet spot” below Puerto Vicente Guerrero. The target was big jack crevalle, but a low pressure system moved in, shutting off the bite. We were surrounded by hundreds of big jacks at one point, and couldn’t buy a strike. Still, we managed 16 fish of 5 different species. We got a few black skipjacks, 8 huge sierras, 5 chulas, a 13 pound jack, and an estimated 8 pound pargo.

On the way back to their rented house on Playa Blanca, we stopped at the restaurant Chula Vida, which has a sushi special on Wednesdays. I talked to the cook, dropped off the fish, making arrangements for them to have their fish cooked up that evening. They had sushi, the pargo cooked up on the coals “a la talla”, with fish tacos and ceviche for lunch today. In fact, we all took chulas and sierras home and ate well last night, including the maid at the Casa Verde where the Lawson family is staying on Playa Blanca. She got a 7 pound sierra.

Today, Thursday, we went back down to the “sweet spot”, with Tim Cross of Wisconsin. It was an almost exact replica of yesterday, but today we got over 20 fish. Again, the jacks didn’t eat, but only because they were stuffed full of small squid and sardines. However, we will eat well again tonight.
|Santiago also took his Danish clients on the long run|
down to Vicente Guerrero. It paid off, with fourty pound
roosterfish and this fifty pound rooster.
