It’s always nice to host annual tournaments here at Buenavista Beach Resort; we build such great friendships with these folks over the years. And the longtime repeats bring newbies, taking great pride in showing them the ropes – that’s always fun to watch as well!
This past week we had flyfishermen on the Mosca, so no photos there. These guys do it the hard way – no bait! And they usually release their fish as well. Mike O’Brien and his buddy sure have had some great stories to tell though. The one I liked was about the big bull dorado he landed and then released, while other charters around him watched him release a fish they probably would have saved for dinner.
Then there was the Buds & Suds Invitational Tourney with 22 boats involved. Once again, Jason Hawk did a wonderful job of organizing this event. Here’s a nice tuna from a few days ago during that event.
And here’s what Jason wrote about the event afterwards. “With 3 days of great weather, 2 days of great fishing at Buenavista Beach Resort, 22 teams competed for $43,900 in prize monies,” he said. “The 2013 Buds & Suds Contractor Invitational lived up to its billing as the Plumbing Industry’s Premier Big Game Sport Fishing Tournament.”
“The bite was definitely on fishing,” Jason said. “The 2-day tournament resulted in 89 Dorado, 36 Tuna, 1 Wahoo, 63 Sailfish, 20 Striped Marlin, and 2 Blue Marlin being caught. Having the opportunity to catch the trophy big gamefish you always dreamed of and network with leading contractors from all over North America; there was plenty of action both on and off the water.”
We also had longtime guests, Ron and Susan Hasse, with son and wife Mike and Gina with us fishing on the Dottie B. Yesterday they released 3 marlin and finished filling their ice chest.
But marlin weren’t the only thing being released this past week.
One of our neighbors likes to fish from our dock in the afternoons and watch what the boats bring in. This day, it was him bringing in the fish.
And now, it’ll be the Army & Navy Academy’s Big Gamefish tourney (both Axel and Esaul are graduates from here, too) This is their 4th year with us but Don Smith has been bringing his Rotary folks down here for the past 10 or 15 years. So bringing this new event here was a no-brainer for him.
