This past week was filled with much more than fishing.  This past week here at Hotel Buenavista we saw the joyous occasion of marriage.  This past week the Hotel Buenavista along with the family and friends witnessed the joining of Timothy and Kathy.  They were united  on the beach in front of the hotel under a arch of fishing rods held by their closest and dearest loved ones.  Hotel Buenavista is very honored  Timothy and Kathy chose our resort to hold one of the biggest events in their lives.  We would like to say to all that were involved in this wonderful ceremony  best wishes from all of us here at Hotel Buenavista.

This is Ryan Thorp from Los Osos, California.  Ryan caught this nice Dorado along with one other Dorado three Pargo and one Pompano while fishing aboard Mosca 3. Look at this great Wahoo caught by James Butschek form Phoenix Arizona.  He caught this and twenty Tuna while fishing aboard Sr. Don.

This is Rob Stickle from Colorado on the left with a fifty pound Dorado.  Joined by his friend Glenn Holcomb from San Francisco on the right with a forty pound Dorado.  Helping them hold these two great fish is Shawn Kelley also from San Francisco.  

We had a wonderful trip.  Hortensia was fantastic.  She foresaw all of our needs and kept everyone happy.  The fishing was great.  The wedding was smooth.  Our handicap traveler was comfortable and enjoyed the trip immensely!  You have a beautiful hotel with great people working there.  We were very happy. 

The only complaint I heard was that our group would have preferred meals to be served buffet style.  Not bad for a group of our size.

All in all, we had a great trip and hope to do it again next year!

Thank you,
Larry & Peggy Cote'

Water Temperature: The water temperature has not changed much this week with it just about perfect with the water temps. being anywhere from 80-84.  This is the water temps. that seem to have the "life" in them.  We have seen different fish concentrating and being caught in different water  temperatures. The Stripe Marlin have been caught in the water that is slightly cooler in the 80 degree mark while the Tuna have been out slightly further where the water is nearing the mid 80's mark.

Weather Temperature:  The Temperature has stayed on the warm side this week with temps. reaching the mid 90's.  We have seen very little wind in the morning with strong breezes from the south around mid day.  The evenings have been very comfortable with clear skies. 

Fishing Spots and Distance:  The fishing has been taking place mostly South to Southeast of the hotel and north in the Punta Pescedero area.  The Tuna fishing has been out around the ten to fifteen mile mark where the captains have been trolling thru the schools of Porpise.  The Tuna have ranged in size from five to thirty five pounds.  The Marlin and Wahoo fishing has taken place very close to shore in the afternoons.  The captains have been finding them about two to three miles out from in front of La Ribera South as far as Cabo Pulmo.  

Off-shore fishing.- Off shore the fishing continues strong for Tuna.  We have seen a few Dorado mixed in as well.  The Marlin bite continues to stay fairly strong with a few Blue Marlin being seen.   

In-shore fishing.- The inshore fishing has taken back seat for the most part this week to the fishing off shore.  We have seen some very nice Jack's in the deeper water in front of the hotel in the afternoon.  The captains also report strong a strong rooster population just south of La Ribera to the light house.

Successful lures: The Lures for the Tuna have been cedar plugs along with hoochies in the colors of white and red or blue and pink and finally blue and white.  The jigs for the Marlin and Wahoo have been pertolero, pink and black or black and green and white and blue.  

Bait Used: The bait this week continues to be Mullett for the most part.  We did have our first small migration of Sardina this week.  This was nice to see.  As most of you know the Sardina can help fishing like no other bait.  They are excellent for inshore bait fishing or off shore for chuming the Tuna and Dorado and other fish.  We hope they continue to be available but we will have to wait and see. 

Highlight of the Week:  The Tuna are back !!  The water is warm and the fishing is great. We have even seen a few big Blue Marlin!!   We would like to mention that the new flight from Ontario, CA has begun  to see more  Click here!!!!

See you next week!
