 Jan 7, 2006; 01:08PM - Striped Marlin Too!!

 Author E-mail:  bajafly@bajafly.com
Report Description: The 80º blue water is just outside Zihuatanejo Bay and the fishing has been excellent. Most of the action is coming from the 12- to 15-mile mark on a 210º heading. We are getting lots of sailfish, dorado, blue marlin, and striped marlin. Actually, the striped marlin are somewhat unique for this area, but this last week has seen a bunch of them taken.

Some notable catches were made by Adolpho on the panga “Dos Hermanos” this week. Offshore, he had a one day total of eight sailfish releases. He then took the 45 mile run south to Papanoa and got four roosterfish and 15 large jack crevalle. Yesterday (1/6) he went 35 miles north and got four roosters and 31 of the large jacks.

Rick Erdman and his wife, annual clients of Santiago on the panga “Gitana,” fished three days. They released 10 sailfish and caught an additional three striped marlin. Plus, another 70 year old client from Chicago fished yesterday (Friday) with Santiago. They were back at the dock before noon. The client was worn out with four sailfish and a striped marlin.

John Ring of Lodi, Calif., fished with me one day, tagging and releasing his first sailfish on the fly. And his 11 year old son David also released his first sailfish when we did a bait and switch drop back using a 20-pound spin outfit with a circle hook. David fought the fish alone the entire 30 minutes it took to get the sail to the boat for a photo and release.

The dorado are averaging one or two to a boat per day, and about 25- to 30-pounds. The fleet is averaging two to three blue marlin a day

Inshore the beigning of the week was red hot with small game and the Roosterfish arrived toward the end of the week.

Included in the 5 SAILFISH was Mrs. Farley's 135 lb SAILFISH which is our largest of the season so far. Captain CHiro who had previously worked aboard the Vamonos 3, work diligently this summer to refurbish the 35' Bertram and has recently added a complete line of 30 and 50 Two speed Shimano outfits. Anglers who are interested in fishing with Captain Chiro aboard the 'Bloody Hook' are encouraged to contact our office for available dates.

Report Description: Fishing has been very good this last week. The 82º blue water is at the entrance to Zihuatanejo Bay. I actually observed two free-swimming sailfish, and a hooked and leaping dorado of about 40 pounds, less than 200 yards from the bay's mouth.

Each boat has been averaging two to three sailfish a day, plus two 25- to 30-pound dorado. Plus, the fleet is averaging between two and three blue marlin a day. However, due to the fact the fleet is geared up for the sailfish and dorado, there have numerous other marlin lost. The average marlin strike is about one fish per three boats.

Some notable catches this week were with Martin on the panga “Isamar.” Phil and Wendy Sollecito fished for two days, releasing six sailfish, a large dorado, and a small blue marlin of about 125 pounds. Bob Nelson from San Clemente, Calif., is an annual client of Martin's and also fished two days. Bob released five sailfish and took two nice dorado.

Adolpho, on the panga “Dos Hermanos,” had a great day catching the large dorado with 10.

Fly-fishers are getting a lot of shots at the sailfish, and even a couple of dorado. Fishing with me guiding and Captain Felipe on the panga “Yellowfin,” Fred Miller of Denver had three sailfish on the fly. I also did a drop back with a live bait for his son-in-law, and he tagged and released his first sailfish. The bait and switch was done using a spinning rod, 5-feet of 100# test leader, a circle hook, and the spinning reel filled with 20 pound line.Ed Kunze, Zihuatanejo

 Category:  Mexico Ixtapa Zihuatanejo
 Author Name:  Gary Graham
 Author E-mail:  bajafly@bajafly.com
Report Description: With just a short seven mile ride to the blue water, the action for sailfish is steadily picking up as we come out of the full moon cycle. Most of the action is straight out of Zihuatanejo Bay on a 200º heading, and at 15 miles.

The fleet is averaging about 3 sailfish a day per boat on conventional gear, and about two very nice dorado. The dorado have been a great late addition to the action this week, and are averaging a respectable 25- to 35-pounds.

Some boats are getting a bit luckier than the average however. Captain Maragarito, on the small cruiser “Gaby,” fished two days and released 10 sailfish. He also got five nice dorado.

Santiago, on the panga “Gitana,” released five sailfish with Philippe of Denmark and averaged three released fish a day the rest of the week.

I guided fly-fishing client Terrence Tucker of New Jersey for some inshore action. The 14- to 18-pound jacks were really slamming the hookless popper teaser, but he was “snake bit” and couldn’t get one on the fly. He ended up hooking two very nice dorado of about 25 pounds, and just 150 yards off the beach. We fished with Arturo on the panga “Janeth.”

On another guided fly-fishing day with Baja on the Fly client John Oberton of Dana Point, Calif., he ended up with one sailfish and one 30 pound dorado. We fished with Captain Cali on the cruiser “Vamonos.”

Report Description: Fishing has picked up considerably this week. I do expect it to slow down a bit with the full moon waning, but as of yesterday (Friday) we have really been enjoying the action.

Conventional gear fisherman Ludo Coenen of Belgium, fished with Martin on the panga Isamar the last six days. They caught, tagged, and released 25 sailfish. Their fish were mostly taken at the 25 mile mark, and a 210º heading.

Another Belgian client, Philippe Collin, fished two days with Santiago on the panga Gitana. They tagged and released five sailfish the first day. Thursday (12/15), because several of us have not had much success on roosters locally, Santiago decided to make the 40 mile run to Papanoa with Philippe. It was a long day, but they released six roosterfish averaging 25- to 35-pounds, a 25-pound jack crevalle, and an 8 pound sierra. All the fish were taken on slow trolled live bait.

I guided Baja n the Fly client, Scott Haynes of Cody, Wyoming, for one day with the flyrod on the Vamonos with Captain Cali. Scott had never used a flyrod in his life, yet alone caught a sailfish. The first fish teased to the boat very well, and within minutes Scott had logged two firsts.

I also guided Baja on Fly client Fred Marx on a beach trip yesterday. We hit the beaches up north near Union and Majahua, and south below the airport at Barra Pototsi. We found sardines and birds crashing on every beach. Unfortunately, the larger 14- to 20-pound jacks were not there. We caught a fair number of fish, but nothing of any size. The black skipjack tuna, green jacks, and sierra were all biting well. The Barra had the most fish and the most promising signs that the big jacks should be moving in there shortly.

Report Description: The good sailfish action of this last week has died off somewhat. For the fleet, we are averaging about two sailfish a day per boat. However, most boats are also getting about one good 20+ pound dorado for dinner.

Fly fishermen are not having any luck at all on the roosters, but there are a few large jack crevalle eating the feathered hook. These fish are averaging a respectable16-pounds. Black skipjack tuna and cabrilla are rounding out the inshore action with the long rods.

Our Sales and Tales Tournament was completed on Monday with Cecilia “Pudge” Kleinkauf, visiting all the way from Anchorage, taking first place; with second place going to Joe Dowdell, Marathon, Fla. For all the details and results go to http://www.bajafly.com/sailsandtales/sailsfinal.asp

Report Description: Yesterday (12/2) was the pre-fish day for our “Sails and Tales” tournament and Joe Dowdell, Marathon, Fla., was the first one back to the dock with bragging rights with his sail caught on the fly. The rest of contestants seemed to fall in the into the “Tales” category and could be heard over their margaritas last night saying today (Sat.) would be different on the first tournament day. Weather has been great all week and the number of shots has been increasing daily.
