Esaul Valdez of Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort on the East Cape with one of two tuna caught yesterday (10-30) at Gordo Banks, fishing out of San Jose on the Dottie II with Vicente.
Weights were estimated with a formula because by the time they came back to the marina nobody is there, so with the formula the big one was 290 lbs. and the small one 160 lbs. Two others got away and the day before, four got away.
The Dottie B II will be based out of San Jose until Nov. 18; it’s just a short van ride from the resort to where she is moored and then and even shorter trip out to the fishing grounds on the famous Gordo Banks. The big fish are here-better hurry if you want one too!
