Week ending August 30, 2016
Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort
The weather is outstanding but maybe a little warm for the East Cape. Temps remain at 75 to 95 degrees beneath partly cloudy skies with afternoon breezes.
Inshore – offshore — on the beach … everyplace except for maybe the swimming pool there are fish.
Who needs a boat?
Andy Tromald of Huntington Beach landed a 40- to 45-pound rooster in front of Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort. He hooked the gallo after getting a ‘livey’ bait from Javier Cota on the Dorothea; he hooked up off the end of the dock, got off the dock and chased the fish down the beach, where he finally landed it with the assistance of Javier!
Offshore – inshore — the bite is hot in East Cape!
Larry Weed from Longwood, Fla., fishing aboard Careleste with Capt. Julio Cota landed this 40-pound yellowfin tuna.
The Stoked on Fishing crew hosted an East Cape Fiesta, filmed by a crew of six for Fox Sports West.
Shea McIntee and his brother, Ryan McIntee, co-hosted the event that included the owner/ CEO Andrew Pereira with his wife, Bettina, and sons in a group of 20 people.The first night the group was welcomed by a Mexican Fiesta, complete with a Mariachi band and dinner. The three days fishing featured a contest with daily jackpots for the best catches of the day.
They certainly picked a perfect time to visit. They caught a nice mix of blue marlin, striped marlin, a few sailfish plus a gaggle of small dorado, wahoo, rainbow runners and some nice-size yellowfin tuna to 40 pounds that weren’t camera shy!
Saturday featured an exciting Beach Party for all.
The Beach Party was followed on Monday evening by the popular local musician, Rafael on the veranda, who coaxed some members of the group to join him in singing throughout the evening.
“I’m so stoked that my Bro. J.T. caught the first roosterfish of his life! Thanks to Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort for having us down.” …Shea, Stoked on Fishing.
