This past week most of Buenavista Beach Resort boats are fishing the Bisbee’s Offshore Tournament and here are yesterday’s (Wednesday) Day 1 report. Although these numbers are unofficial, they should hold.
The heaviest dorado weighed in was by Oso Loco at 39.2 pounds. Unless something changes that will earn then $12,810!
The heaviest tuna weighed was brought in by Handyman and weighed 46.6 pounds. Unless something changes that will earn also earn them $12,810! Normally we do not let anglers weigh in two fish but they had already weighed in their “official” tuna and the second fish was so close in size, they we just curious as to whether they had made the right choice or not. Turns out they were. It weighed 45.1.
Many marlin were called in but none made it to the scale. They must weigh a minimum of 300 pounds, while the minimum weight for dorado is 20 pounds and tuna is 40 pounds.
We have a few flyfishing anglers with us fishing for dorado and bringing in limits each day. They were using 3-inch sardine flies. We also had a few targeting roosterfish. Dave Homuth from Marco Island, FL caught and released this nice gallo estimated at 60 pounds.
While brother Fred from Nepals, FL caught and released this 20 pounder.
It’s “Lines Out” For Day 2 of the Bisbee here at Buenavista Beach Resort so boats will be headed in. Look for the full report in next week’s fishing report.
Tip of the week – stay hydrated if you are coming down – it’s hot out there!
