Z Fish Report (12/26/13)

Up and down the coast the 84° blue water is between 3 and 5 miles off the beach. The fishing is good, and is steadily improving.

Offshore – The boats have been averaging about 2 to 3 sailfish a boat per day, but decent sized dorado (15 to 30 pounds) have been showing up in good numbers, averaging 1 to 2 per boat per day. The best producing areas are between the 18 and 20 mile marks, straight out of Zihuatanejo Bay.

L.J. Gato of Canada fished a day with Martin on the panga Spuma for two sailfish released and two dorado of about 30 and 40 pounds. 

Gordon Case also fished with Martin on Thursday, releasing 4 sailfish with a total of 8 strikes.

John Neudorf of Alberta brought his family here for the holidays and fished with Chiro on the Bloody Hook for two days, accounting for 6 sailfish released and 5 dorado (15 to 25 pounds).

Adan, on the super panga Gitana, had the best single day this week with 6 sailfish and 1 dorado. And that was today (Thursday), so I expect the average to start coming up even more this next week.

And the miss

Even though the roosters have fairly much left the area, the
inshore action has been taken over with lots of jack crevalle, sierras, and black skipjack tuna. John Neudorf and his brother Fred fished with Adolfo and me on the panga Dos Hermanos for one day. We went down to the Petatlan area and scored big on the sierras and black skipjack early, then about mid-morning the jacks moved in. We wrapped up the day with seven jack crevalle (between 14 and 15 pounds), and an ice chest filled to the brim with sierras.

John Neudorf had the largest jack of the day
The next day Adolfo went back to the same area with two clients from Calgary, but a low pressure area settled in and the bite shut off. He moved out a few hundred yards off the beach and spotted a large dorado cruising the surface. One cast with the surface popper, and they had a solid hookup. Even though the light action spin reel was fantastic for sierras, it couldn’t hold the big dorado and soon the line was spooled. With the boat in gear and going hard, they spotted the braid line floating on the surface. Grabbing the line, re-threading through the guides, and back onto the spool, they were able to get close to the bull dorado again. And, there was the female with him! So Cheva, as deckhand, quickly sliced a sierra and pinned the strip bait on a hook of another rod. Two casts and two dorado of about 45 and 30 pounds, with a lot of excitement, and a lot of experience (with quick thinking) in between.
