What can I say except it was another week with some great reports and outstanding fishing? The striped marlin have been thick this year with large schools of fish everywhere, if that was you were targeting the chances were pretty darn good that you’d be able to release at least one. Running in these same schools were sailfish and even though not as many were interested in our bait we still managed 13 of them at Buenavista Beach Resort.
The Reyes party from Sacramento hooked 5 sails just yesterday (Thursday) managing to release 4 of them. The only one that didn’t survive will still be put to good use of course. The day before they had 24 tuna and 1 released striper on the Careleste.
Once again we had a ton of football-sized tuna onboard our fleet. Fishing on the Alegria, The Armenta family from Arizona brought 14 to the dock including Grandmother Anita’s toping all of the boys with her 28.1-pound fish. The family is down here celebrating her birthday with her; what a great present and fish!
Paul and Robin Egan normally fly fish the Sacramento Delta for stripers; this week they are applying their skills to the Sea of Cortez. What a cute couple they make.
Speaking of flyfishing; did I mention that the Glacier Bay Flycasters Club was down here having a little fun at Buenavista Beach Resort? They spent several days on the water but also a lot of time at the swim-up bar; good for you guys and gals!
Visiting us from the main land, Dr. Jaime Blizzard and his son Rey Garza stayed with us to do some serious fishing and boy did they ever. Here’s dad with Capt. Alejandro Castro of the Eclipse and his 139.6-pound tuna.
Now it’s time to get ready for next week’s Bisbee Offshore followed by the East Cape Sportfishing Club’s annual International Fishing Tournament on August 30 & 31.
