The week was a little up and down, in part due to some winds early in the week here at Buenavista Beach Resort. But this season is looking very promising – with warmer than usual water temperature readings. It looks like an El Niño may develop later this year.
Neighbors fished 4 or 5 miles off the Lighthouse and found this season’s first yellowfin tuna. Founds in two different schools of porpoise, this is very encouraging.
The dorado never really left us this winter, but for the most part there were not many of the big boys around. There were however, plenty of striped marlin around – and they are still here. The Okuma Group released 8 or 9, the Patterson’s 3 (which earned them Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort release badges) and our neighbors released another one this afternoon 19 miles out in 81-degree waters.
