The fishing was excellent this week

July 19 – July 26, 2017

Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort

The sea was calm in the mornings, flat as a lake, with little or no wind until after 3:00 p.m. when it blew a little … up to 6 knots. Water temp was near the mid 80s.

The weather temp was around the low- to mid-90s.

The fishing was excellent this week.  As the fleet traveled to most of the fishing points from Cerralvo Island down south to the Destiladeras, El Cardon and Punta Gorda, they spotted schools of dorado, tuna, marlin, mantas, dolphin, different kinds of sharks and turtles.

The tuna were south, past the lighthouse all the way down near Pulmo Park.  Schools of dorado were spotted north by the 88, but they were small.
