IXTAPA-ZIHUATANEJO FISHING REPORT FOR THE INDEPENDENT SPORTFISHING FLEET
According to Captain Temo Verboonen, owner-operator of the Secuestro de Amor, the not so far offshore fishing continues to be in the excellent mode for marlin, sailfish and dorados and starting just past the 1 mile mark out front of the Bay in the blue water. Lots of big logs with in the area with lots of bait and schooled up dorados. It's amazing fishing right now and there are more and more anglers showing up everyday and all returning very happy with their day's fishing results. Plenty of action. The inshore fishing remains slow for he roosters and jack crevalles but some good big eye jack catching at the rocks. Overall, it's been a bonanza fishing and catching experience for he first of the year and with any luck at all, the bite will continue for this area.
