Here is his quote from the todays email.

Well supposibly we rented one 37 foot fishing boat for 11 people to booze cruise and fish. When we got to the marina they had 2 smaller 20' boats waiting for us. Gerd instantly complained about the situation and threatend to notify the Tourrism board. After looking at some other crappy boats which were just as small we decided to take the 2 boats they had prepared. Someone Im sure was enjoying our larger boat for fishing and we got screwed. Gerd, Lutz, Patrik and myself took one boat while the rest (the drinkers) took the other boat. As we headed out of Ixtapa harbor our boat overheated due to no water cooling and nearly caught fire. We made a transfer over to the other parties boat and continued on out. We trolled about 10 miles out and in an hour I made the 1st hookup.... Took me about 20 mins to land the fish. It was about 60 Kilos and 1.5 meters. Of course since Im no cold blooded killer (Like Dave!) I caught and released (Maybe if I had a hefty bag the situation would have been different). Hope you all had a great New Years Eve, we head to the airport in a few more hours so Im going to catch a little more fun in the sun before we leave paradise.

Need to get you down here for some fishng. No Hotel fees just a plane ticket and your good to go. The folks place is really nice and its on the best spot of the beach about 20 mins from the airport.
