As far as the fishing went, it was very spotty with the fish concentrated in areas holding bait. A perfect example was Santiago, on the super panga Gitana, fishing with Flip Himmelreich and Dave Wisdom from Spokane & Portland. They caught only 1 fish on the 1st day, none on the 2nd day, and then 6 on the last day.
Normally it takes a week or so after the tournament for things to settle down, but on Wednesday Santiago went back out with John and Justin Strumilla from Toronto. They released 3 sailfish and landed a very nice 45# dorado.

Inshore action has been on the slow side up here around Zihuatanejo. Adolfo, on the panga Dos Hermanos, just wrapped up 6 days straight of fishing with his French client. Daily they were getting sierras, chulas, and jack crevalle, but they really had to work for them. They found huge jack crevalle out in front of the White rocks, plus a bunch of chulas they were able to troll up in the same area.

John Lorenz, of the fishing lodge Bahia de Tortuga, down at Puerto Vicente Guerrero provided an incredible week for his clients Sam Gammy and Mike Frehlick of British Columbia. Trolling deep diving Rapalas inshore, they scored on roosters, jack crevalle, and dog tooth snapper. Offshore, they trolled out to 35 miles and found the yellowfin tuna on cedar plugs. They got full limits of tuna for everybody on the boat.
