May 10 -16 Report
Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort
It was something of an “odd” week with unnecessary wind ranging from 6- to 16-mph that lasted though last weekend. Fishing was nevertheless pretty darn good … and in some cases, perfect. Hard to figure!
In the “hard to figure” category was a very consistent wahoo bite. No giants, but plenty of tugs from good-size ’hoo throughout the area. They definitely added to a winning week for our skippers.
Reports of roosterfish feeding right out in front of the hotel had some guests flinging lures while others took flyrods to the beach hoping for a grab or two.
All the while, many of our boat captains ventured farther down the coast for the striped marlin frolicking here and there from La Ribera all the way down to below Los Frailes. They also jumped on nice loads of yellowfin tuna that had found plenty of bait to satisfy them – enough to stick around for the remainder of the week.
The Mark Phillips Group, Key West, Fla. found plenty of tuna and wahoo action during their stay.
