This past week the marlin traded places with what was the number one species the week before – dorado. Last week Buenavista Beach Resort had 18 striped marlin and 74 dorado. This week we had 69 marlin and only 47 dorado. With good fishing close in, once again, most anglers fished just south of the Lighthouse.
And finished the day trolling for roosterfish in front of Buenavista Beach Resort.
Spa neighbor Jeff Lynn and family fished with us a few days and shared some of their photos; like this one of daughter Jordan, with her first dorado.
And here’s a few of Jeff’s fish.
Everyone got a little something. His father-in-law released a marlin, and his wife Sylvia took a nice pargo.
By the end of the Buenavista Beach Resort report period, football-sized tuna were added, with the “Pizza My Heart” group enjoying afternoon sashimi at the pool bar. From left to right, Jeff, Geoff, Steve, Chuy and Beau stand by their daily prizes.
So as you can see, we had a nice sampling of species, and “Where are all the fish” is – close in. Our count this past week was 69 marlin, 47 dorado, 10 tuna, 8 roosterfish, and a amberjack, jack, skipjack and pargo. The Dottie B was the top marlin boat, with 17 releases but the Tres Hermanos was close behind with 14 for the week.
