Does anyone know anything about fishing around Ixtapa. Are there better choices for fly fishing in the area.

fished out of artmarina a couple of years ago with my two sons. pull up their web page it tells you everthing you could possibly ask. we went in the offseason and arrived just after a tropical storm. from my reading of the reports which were readily available at that time on the net, it was as bad as it ever gets when we were there. it was still good enough. they use 20 lb rigs, and weall got fish that way plus lots of dorado each of the 1st two days. the last day i landed one on the fly rod out of 2 sails raised and one marlin raised.i am convinced it is the only area i would go to for sailfishon the fly. first class operation when we were there.
