Sure do second that request.

The Sailfish bite has been outstanding in recent weeks and this is the prime time for great Sailfish action. Sportfishing Magazine
(February 2001 issue) recognized Ixtapa Zihuatanejo as the second most popular sailfish destination in the world. The Tag &
Release effort is gaining in popularity and donating tags to the captains and crews is a great idea.

In addition to Mr. Phillip's posting of where tags can be purchased, Johnny Morris " Offshore Angler" catalog is another source. When making you next tackle order pick up a pack of tags and bring them along to Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. Other items supporting the tag & release program can also be purchased through Johnny Morris Offshore angler. You can reach the Johnny Morris catalog department at 1-800-463-3746 or on line at
Thank you in advance for your consideration.

We would also like to remind readers that sportfishing from Ixtapa Zihuatanejo hosted by Ixtapa SPortfising Charters will be seen this coming Sunday January 13 at 8:30 am e.s.t and again on January 17th at 10:30 am and 4:00 pm e.s.t. The Show is entitled " In Search of Fly Waters" with professional guide and world class angler Jim Costalnik comes to
our great destination to Fly fish for Pacific Sailfish.

We will have additional shows appearing in February and March and will post times and dates.

The Second annual Ixtapa ZIhuatanejo Inshore Offshore Total Tag & Release tournament is slated of November 11,12, & 13, 2002 and we have received word from the International Game Fish Association that both the Inshore division and Offshore division have been approved as qualifying events for their invitational Tournaments of Champions in 2003. See our web site for details. A list of references is available upon request.

Many Thanks,
