The List (bear with me please!) Fishing Zihuatanejo

by Labrat ⌂ @, The Roosterfish Foundation, Thursday, February 22, 2018, 12:36 (26 days ago)

So someone messaged me on TA for The List that I send out, and I had to point them to my Ghost Email account on Outlook...............because the new TA message service looks about like Facebook Lite and won't allow more than about a third of The List to be transferred.

So please bear will me while Once Again I eat up some of Rob's bandwidth, and post The List that was compiled years back (and has an update about once a year or so) by Ed Kunze, and Paul Phillips of the catch and release Capt. and Boats.

I would also like to take this short moment to say a goodbye to Paul.
When we get there the next round is on us Buddy.

Included here is a list of ZIH Fishing Boat Captains. It's best to book ahead, and deal directly with the captain of your choice:
Don't get a boat from some "coyote" on the street, at the hotel, or on the beach. No telling what you will have if anything when you show up to fish. The same is true of the internet, if they don't have an office, live in ZIH in ZIH or captain the boat you are looking at, then they are a booking agent. You may get what you want but the Captain won't get what he deserves. It is best to book direct with the Captain or through one of the offices on the Paseo. The contacts listed below are requested by the boat captain listed.
Dialing cell phones in the ZIH area dial 044-755 + 7 digit #

For fishing for one or two, your best bet is a panga. You can figure about U.S. $ 230-240 for the day and that would include everything. The only drawback would be the facilities. Most have only a bowl as in no seat, it is partitioned from the rear area of the boat but open to the center requiring a towel to be held in place for privacy. Making it a little uncomfortable for the ladies. The crews are discreet and can always find something on the far horizon to study.
Pangas below are $210/day standard charters, $300 for tuna trips:
