June 28-July 5 Report
Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort
Winds were 6- to 9-knots from the north and 8- to 10-knots from the southeast, blowing from two different directions and creating a bit of a problem.
Air temps near perfect from the mid-80s to low 90s.
Water temperatures varied from the mid-80s up north to the high-70s down south of the resort.
All-in-all between the erratic winds and lower than normal water temperatures, offshore fishing was definitely off. Call it a 5 on a scale of 1-10.
Inshore fishing however was great!
Sandra Johnson and Cheryl Bell, from Redding , Calif.; Terry Thomas from Boise, Idaho and Carol Nichols from South Carolina had a huge and memorable 8-days of fishing, landing dorado, tuna, amberjack, snappers, jack crevalle and roosterfish.
Peter and Deborah Binney, visiting from Colo., fished aboard Alegria and Regina had a great time landing a mixed bag of amberjack, dorado and yellowfin tuna.
The large “Wall-to-Wall” group was at the resort for a remarkable 22nd consecutive year! Group members are from Utah, California and Idaho and hosted their own personal tournament; fishing wasn’t great but they managed to get dorado, red snapper, amberjack and some YFT in the mix. They had a good time and enjoyed their trip once again.
Buenavista chefs did up a special dinner buffet on the beach for the Wall-to-Wall group.
- MORE NOTES – Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort (HBBR) now has live music in the pool area every Sunday.
