PHOTO GALLERY AND FISHING AND CONDITION REPORT   WEEK: JULY 1ST WEEK.

My brother, Felipe Jesus Valdez, was visiting last week from Monterrey, where he is working. Here with our cousin, Alfredo Ramos and Esaul's brother in law, Jorge Montano. Three nice dorados, the biggest up to 50 lbs test, the other 43 lbs and 37 lbs respectively. Our neighbor, Mike O'Dell on his boat Sonrisa brought this baby in after 1 1/2 hours. We are all looking forward for the Bisbee, everything is coming to place to have a great event. More and more blues are coming in, and captains reports show that this big ones are around.  They brought in to be weight at the resort, only to get our heart pumping.

Water Temperature:  One more week with everything as last week, those guests coming soon should continue to have this great conditions.  

Air Temperature:  Weather as well has maintain its temperature, but you may thing is raising because of the humidity, even though we have not yet reach the 100's mark

Fishing Spots and Distance: Same as last week, fleets are not going to far to catch dorado and marlin, they are venturing out further for tuna, with mix results. Average boat ride to fishing grounds 30 minutes.      

Off-shore Fishing: Dorado fishing continues to dominate, and it is still very close, some big up to 50 lbs. but most of them are in the small to medium size, you can find them from Punta Arena (light house) to el Cardonal, it just depends if you are lucky and find them. Blue marlin's numbers continue to rise as well as sailfish, which is normal, but we have had boats with up to two blues in a day. Striped marlin continues to hang around, which makes it possible to get all three in the same day.

In-shore Fishing:  I will continue to say it. Mix your fishing days, one day must be inside and with light tackle, in-shore fishing continues to offer the most consistent fishing. There has been really good and quality roosterfishing, this past week Shawn from the Mr. Clouthier group caught and release one over 70 lbs (estimated by captain), he will send us some great pictures taken before its release.

Successful Lures:  Petrolero (brown with orange and little gray), Chivato (Yellow, orange, with black stripes), Purpura (black with purple) are the best. The latest was the one used to caught a blue over 500 lbs. by one of our neighbor friends.

Bait Used:  Pangueros has found some mackerel this past week. Also some sardines. No big problems with it.  

Highlight of the Week: Dorados definitely, but captains continue to report a lots of hits on blues. This is great news as the big tournaments for the East Cape are just around the corner.

See you next week!
