Francisco on the super panga Huntress
Some people were concerned about the 7.6 quake we had down here. It hit about 200 miles south of Zihuatanejo and about midnight. I was asleep and didn’t feel a thing. Talking to other people who were awake (non-fishermen), they said it was just a couple of quick bumps and nothing else. No problems here at all.
The quake didn’t seem to hurt the action, but the cool water temperature drop has affected the fish. Adan, on the panga Gitana II took Kelowana British Columbia residents Cyril & Lisa Augustine out one day. They tagged and released 4 sailfish, and got a nice dorado for dinner. On the same day, Francisco on the super panga Huntress released 2 large striped marlin and 1 sailfish. Then the temperature dropped and today Cheva, on the panga Dos Hermanos II, raised 1 striped marlin, and 5 sailfish, but couldn’t get them to eat anything. He was fishing with Robert Bullock and his two daughters.

That is Dwight Hoyle fighting his rooster.
The inshore is cold and a bit off colored. We are going to have to wait a few more days for things to stabilize before it picks up again. However, local icon Ernie Mrachek of Troncones went with Dwight Hoyle from Sequim WA, and Dick Terry from Troncones for a day on the super panga Giatana with Santiago and Adan. They made the long run to Puerto Vicente Guerrero, and did well with 2 very nice roosters and a large jack crevalle.
