Our friends from Omaha, Nebraska team up with Jesus and Jose on the eclipse. First day out, and they landed the first swordfish of the season.
NOTE: This is our 3rd swordfish in three years landed, other has been fought. But the commercial fisherman are using the excuse of the swordfish to fish with long line technique, specially in the Pacific Ocean, which incidentally catch a lot of other species.
We were very excited to hear that gourmet restaurants in New York were boycotting the swordfish platter. And I was very disappointed to find out that in California it is still one of the top dishes in restaurants. Therefore lets protect what we would like our children to see, by not making a bigger demand for this unprotected species.

World Wide Travel Group from Sacramento Valley were here this weekend, and it looks as if they had a great time and great fishing.
The welcome cocktail party was prepared in the barīs terrace with Mexican appetizers and beer. The heads of the departments were introduced to both parties.
This week we were full of surprises. This picture was taken to one of the two models that came to shoot our beautiful beach. The picture was taken for Stone Company from New York. They stock pictures on the web for agencies to buy them. They were amazed of the clearness of our beach. They had already had a picture session in Los Cabos, but they wanted a nice peaceful beach. I was not able to shoot more pictures because it was not appropriate for the models, but they were nice enough to let us shoot one after they were done. To see the other picture please Press here

Our friends Ed Klima and Mr. Woody after a good day of fishing. As it sometimes happens, out of the 75% of billfish release yearly, 20% are kept, due to bad hook ups. Still, nothing from the marlin goes to waist nor is sold, and the community is greatly appreciated for marlin that comes in. We thought this one was a white marlin, but after carefully checking it, we found out it was a small striped marlin.
Here they are in company of some of the participants to the beauty pageant. Mr. Greg Janes sent a very nice letter.Thank you on behalf of the Staff and Family
Our stay at the Buena Vista went very well. The staff really works hard to make the guests comfortable and satisfied. The rooms were very clean and the restaurant food was very good. The fishing fleet was organized very well and all boats went out after a very nice sunrise breakfast each day. I highly recommend the boat "Marlin Magic." It's about a year old and has plenty of room for four large guys and is very comfortable and fast. It's easily one of the best boats in the fleet. The captain, Luis and the first mate, also Luis, worked very hard and were both extremely competent. We did well only one out of three days, but that was of NO fault of the boat or crew. That's why they call if fishing and not "catching." Two hints: If you're the first wave of weekend anglers after the weekday lull, go straight out to the shark bouys early in the morning as the Dorado might be restocked the each weekend haul by then. Once word gets out on the catch there, they're gone for a few days. And bring earplugs out for ANY boat you're in as the drone of the engines can be loud on the long rides out and back.
All meals were very good. The beach is very nice for swimming and walking and it goes in both directions for ever. I'm sure we'll come back for more in the future.

We pampered Miss Mexico's state representatives along with their moms and staff. They cooked the daily catch and had two cooking lessons during the week. The whole kitchen staff really put up a show this past week.
