It wasn’t a stellar week in terms of numbers and sizes of fish for the most part here at Buenavista Beach Resort but it was a week of stellar memories and a Sea of Cortez Grand Slam!
Having survived Buenavista Beach Resort’s July 4 horseshoe competition, it was time for the Gollhardt clan to tackle some big fish. Over the course of a few days they caught a huge 45-pound pargo, Brad’s daughter Erin released a 75-pound roosterfish, Randell released a nice sailfish. They also had a striped marlin.
Brad also released our first black marlin for the season, weighing in at about 180 pounds
And on their last day of fishing Brad also released a 300-pound, 10-foot long blue marlin, resulting in the duel’s Buenavista Beach Resort Grand Slam! Talk about a team!
Representing three generations, the Peabody’s and Trenkelbach’s from Charlotte, NC came down for some quality family time, relaxation and fishing. Conservation minded – they even brought their only tagging equipment. Even with their best intentions though, one marlin got tail wrapped and didn’t survive.

You may remember little 4-year old Tomas from last week’s fishing report, with his first dorado. He also helped bring in his first roosterfish
Tomas also released his very first sailfish and striped marlin – with the help of dad.
And got his first tuna
But the hit of their trip (at least for the kids) was getting to see the baby sailfish.
Here’s a little hint – if you’re fishing with us here at Buenavista Beach Resort – don’t forget your camera! All the action’s on the water!
Even Vicente on the Dottie B is starting to remember his camera!
