IN GENERAL: The sailfish bite has been steady, but not up to expected standards for this time of the year. The 78º blue water is still about 12 miles, but we are only averaging a couple of sailfish per day for each boat. A few blue marlin are being caught also.
George Thomas of Chicago got a 50 pound bull dorado while fishing on the cruiser Yellowfin II with Captain Ruben.
Fly fishing has been slow in the blue water, but the beach fishing has been exciting and a lot of fun. In my Suburban, I have been taking my clients about 45 minutes North of Zihuatanejo to a 2-mile long beach called Saladitas. There are at least a thousand birds, plus another 500 pelicans working the huge concentrations on sardines there. We have been getting sierras, jack crevalle, black skipjack tuna to 6 pounds, and green jacks. The beach has only about 2 foot waves and reminds me of the East Cape of Baja. It is an ideal situation for an 8 or 9wt rod. If you are interested in booking one of the Beach Trips give Yvonne a call at 877 772 2252 for more details.
