THE IXTAPA-ZIHUATANEJO FISHING REPORT FOR THE INDEPENDENT SPORTFISHING FLEET
According to our Zihuatanejo area reporter, Captain Temo Verboonen, it was kind of a split week's fishing action with the first part of the week's action very good and the brighter the moon got, the slower the action became. During the early part of the week the sailfish and stripers were eager to bite and even the dorado came to offer their share of bite action, too and better yet, the bite was right at the 8-mile mark from the entrance to the Bay. The blue water is within a mile of the shoreline but the inshore fishing was very slow, "We saw very few fish all along the coast from Valentin to Salidita.
