Who are you fishing with in Zihua?
It has been dry lately. They did have some rain last week.
Zihua is your best bet for all day charters. Although, half days may not be bad....
I texted him yesterday to book my spring trips. He said boat would be in water soon. He seemed excited. i told him you guys were looking for...
Jaime's last FB post said he would be installing the motor the week of the 12th.
He's probably finishing up the details and will be on the water...
Lighter weight, less fuel.:D
NICE!! Congrats on the cow!
Jaime getting it done!
Looks like you had a good time, Larry.
Only thing Jaime loves more than fishing, is Catching!
I need to get back down there.
Thanks for posting!
Did you take any pics of the winning fish?
Just curious to see if any of the captains I fish with were in the winners.
Get in contact with Jaime Gonzalez.
He runs the panga "Jessica"
Thanks for sharing.
Jaime definitely knows how to get it done!
Thanks for posting your reports!
It was a pleasure reading them.
Another area to look at is Zihuatanejo.
Adolpho and his brother Cheva on the Dos Hermanos boats are excellent roosterfisherman.
I was down in July...
Jaime is the man! He definitely loves to catch fish.
He is giddy like a kid in a candy store when he gets into the fish.
Wish I was...
2 guys can do a panga. 3 can get crowded.
You can contact Ed Kunze through his website.
I fish with Anuar on...
What do you want to fish for?
Inshore for Roosters or Offshore for Big game?
How many people fishing?
I agree 100%. I would only take FC leader down in the future.
Didn't realize bonefish were on the West coast of MX.
After I posted, I did some googling and saw there is a sub species present.
Ksong, was that a bonefish?
Anxiously awaiting pics.
Info for day of fishing.
Adolpho and Cheva on the Dos Hermanos boats are very good for roosters and jacks.
No you do not need 2 people. $250 is the rate for the boat.
The top captains in Zihua have good to excellent gear.
I no longer take rods...
Chula are real good eating. I caught some years ago in Zihua.
I call them "chicken of the sea" for their white meat. Had some cooked up at a bar....
Congrats on an awesome day of fishing!
Jaime is Top Notch!
Looks like you had a good time. I'm already looking forward to returning in November.
Patriot Jones, I await a trip report.
Good Luck fishing!
Where did you stay on Aitutaki?
We are spending a week on Rarotonga and a week on Aitutaki.
I have a half day with Mike also on the Black...
Anyone else been to Cook Islands?
Going in the spring. Have a half day booked on Aitutaki.
I finally caught my first blue the other week in Zihuatanejo.
The weather was a little rough, which is unusual for this time of year in Zihua....
Details. Don't keep us in suspense.
I'll vouch for Jaime as well. Only guy I'll fish with in Cabo.
He'll even put in OT if it's a slow day. He doesn't like to coming home empty...
Thanks for the report!
Where did you stay? Contact info for Pilo?
Have been thinking about heading down there one of these years.
Epic trip of a lifetime.
You got some toads there! Looks like a great trip!
I didn't get down to fish with Jaime this year, maybe next year.
Definitely some good eating....
Those sierras are good eating too, especially the day you catch them.
Thanks for the report and pics.
Looks like an awesome time. Looking forward to the clips.
Don't want to hijack your post @pascuale, but here is a link to the sail I caught and released last December with Santiago's nephew, Anuar. He...
Those large Roosters will do that to you, especially after a couple of Toros.
One of them chasing and crashing a plug is a sight to see!
Looks like you had a good time in Z.
Tuna are biting currently there now. Rooster fishing should start to pick up soon.
We were down in July...
Going for roosters? Who you fishing with?
I was just down a couple of weeks ago. Fishing around a full moon can be iffy at times. They were getting some blues and blacks in the 400-550#...
Ripcord rescue travel insurance has been offered through my Cabelas card.
Haven't used it but I had gone through the website. Been thinking about...
Sounded like a good trip. Looking forward to the pics.
Looks like you had a great day down there. Hardly any bad days weather wise in Z.
Those roosters and jacks are a blast to catch on poppers.
Charlie Plum offered up good advice. Fishing inshore is hot now. Any of the Dos Hermanos boats are G2G. Expect to pay around $200-250 for a day....
If looking for a panga, Jaime on the "Jessica".

As of May, carry on of fish from Cabo was OK. I brought back 12# of grouper filets in my carry on soft side cooler. They checked to make sure it...
X2 on Jaime if going the panga route.
What size boat? Panga or cruiser?
When I left Cabo 3 weeks ago, they had a chart of items that are NOT approved for carry on. Fishing rods were on that chart. So yes, fishing rods...
If your flight is a United express flight the overall length is limited to 80". On regular flights the overall L+W+H is 115".
The 80" is due to...
I love Zihua. We go down in November every year. Looks like I need to get down there in May for tuna.
Thanks for posting.
Stickbass, How did you make out?
Weather was good this morning, but kicked up late morning, afternoon.
Port closed again, arrgh. Try again on Thursday.
Crazy weather this year.
Haha, chasing tail no matter what!
Yeah, that was me. Hope this wind lays down.
I figured the port was closed as I didn't see any activity this morning.
Stickbass, where are you...
Stickbass, Post up how you did. Maybe hook up this week for a beer.
Will post report on Wednesday or Thursday.
Hopefully Jaime hooks me up again.
Leaving Saturday as well to go down.
Stickbass, you staying in CSL or SJD?
I'm fishing Tuesday with Jaime.
Thanks for the report. 2 weeks to go for me.
Thanks for the report.
Anxiously awaiting my return to Cabo in May to fish with Jaime. :jig:
AO coolers has a special code for Valentines Day for 10% off.

I prefer the vinyl series as they are water resistant. The canvas series will absorb water if they get wet.
I have a 12 can that I have...
Would love to do jigging like that for AJ's and Cubera.
Leaning towards PV for my 50th next year. If it pans out, may have to hook up...

Thanks for the update. Looking forward to the full report.
Happy Birthday to your boy!
According to our captain, the long liners are only putting lines out 2 days a week, about 30-35 mi offshore in Zihuatanejo.
Things are looking up. I caught 4 yesterday in Zihuatanejo. 15-35# size.
Trolling dead bait with skirts preceded by a bird. I was hoping for just...
Just caught 4 dorado today 15-30# size in Zihuatanejo. They've started picking up a couple a day on the charter fleet.
Great report! Thanks for sharing.
Yeah, he was a pig.
Tagged this 9 pt yesterday here in PA.
Just watch the surf in Troncones. It can be rough at times. Locals like to surf there, so waves do get large. it doesn't get deep quickly though...
Not sure what is available in the Troncones area.
Try contacting Ed Kunze. He would be the best bet for hooking you up....
Jaime delivers AGAIN! Thanks for the report.
Nice! Looks like you had a Blast!
Thanks for posting pics!
Nice. Keep the pics coming.
Wow, glad to see the tuna are getting some size on them. Wish I could get back down.
Damn! Nice grouper!
Jaime is the man!

Nice! One of these days I'll get down there for some of them.
I'll be in Cabo in May and was wondering if Jansens or Minervas rents surf rods?
If not, has anyone taken a 2 or 3 pc rod as a carry on?
Nice! One of these days.
Awesome! Can't wait for May to roll around.
^ Nice. I'll be staying right there in May. Have to take a rod and some plugs and iron with.
Thanks for the contact info.
Thanks for the report.
I'll be headed down there in May. First time back since '07.
Do you have any contact info for Jaime?
My avatar is from my July 2012 trip with Adolpho. Best rooster fisherman in Z.
Hoping roosters are still around in Nov. when I head down.
Thanks for the report.
Nice video! Looks like you guys had a blast!
Congrats on the marlin.
Two years ago in Zihua i hooked a billfish and the capt. thought it was a black as it never surfaced and acted the same as...
Wow! That was awesome. I've been thinking of doing that with sailfish I've caught.
Thanks for posting.
It's in Beijing.
Don't know about fishing charters there. But, there is an Expo going on next week....
Pangas down there are very inexpensive. Running from $150-$250/day.
Sign up on http://www.zihuatanejo.net/ and post up on there, maybe you'll get...
Nice story George.
I gotta get down there to Huatulco sometime.
Headed down to Zihua this week.
Looking at possibly going down to Loreto in November. What charters services are recommended in Loreto?
Also, how is the dog tooth snapper bite...

Great pics. Looks like you had a blast!
Congrats on the blue. Nice work.
I was down there 6 yrs ago. We had our dorado cooked up at a place down at the marina. I don't remember the name of the joint, if it's there...
I go down the end of every November.
Usual catches are sails and the occasional dorado. Depending on water temps, tuna are possible.
I am purchasing a TLD 30 II reel and need a rod to put it on.
It will be used for sails and the occasional 150-250 # marlin.
I was looking at...
Nice report!! Hopefully I'll be hitting that in 5 yrs when the house is paid for. Wife says we're going there then, may as well go fishing!:D
Yes, I am looking for a rod to use from a boat. How far could I get a 7' rod to cast with braid, using 3-4 oz plugs?
If I can't get one to do...
Looking for a 2 pc rod to use for roosterfish and sailfish. Need to be able to cast 3-4 lures 100 yds with it.
Congrats- Nice b-day present!!
If you're interested this photographer is looking for some one to tag along with.
Saw it on the Zihua message board.

Fished with them last week, caught 4 sails.
Or, check Ed's website.
There should be Blue marlin...
I was down in Zihuatanejo 2 weeks ago. Hardly any Americans down there. It's a shame, as the roosterfishing is great right now.
Been going down...
I need to cross off a dog tooth snapper from my bucket list. Where on the East Cape do I have the best shot at hooking a 50# fish.
