Week ending August 16, 2016
Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort
Typical Baja weather; temperatures drop to 74 in the evenings and climb up to 91 degrees during the day. Sea temps range from the low 80s inshore to the high 80s offshore.
Billfish continue to be on-fire with most boats that seek them are finding blues, stripers and sailfish randomly appearing in the wake behind the lures.
For those wanting fish that pull hard and are good to eat, the yellowfin tuna are the ticket! Plenty of them that are football-sized with an occasional one showing up that are in the 50-pound class.
Other crowd pleasers are the pompano milling about Punta Arena, as well as some bucket-list-sized roosterfish for both fly and conventional anglers.
For those anglers willing to dig a little deeper — the smaller pargo are schooling around some rock-strewn spots in front of La Ribera.
Good bait supply for mackerel, bollito, ballyhoo and yes, we have no sardina!
