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.
Repeat guest George Bender and Jesse visiting from the border between Iowa and Nebraska fished aboard the Regina with Capt. Victor, aka El Güero, landed wahoo, red snapper, tuna and caught and released a striped marlin.
Darrell Parnell along with his grandsons visiting from northern Oregon and southern Washington aboard Yanet with Capt. Felipe Ruiz and Reggie caught and released striped marlin and landed tuna and dorado.
Visiting from Tijuana, BCS, return guests Juan Pedro Arce, Jorge Bendek and Hector and Paola Moreno fished aboard the Alegria with Capt. Juan and Martin. They landed a 299-pound blue marlin by Cerralvo just a bit north of Hotel Buenavista after over an hour of fighting the fish.
