PHOTO GALLERY AND FISHING AND CONDITION REPORT   WEEK: JULY 3rd WEEK.
This is a very nice picture that describes how this week was weather wise, since we had a lot of big clouds in the area. But there were only two days that we actually felt the rain.
Anglers Togo Hazard, Derek Tresize and Esaul Valdez with Dusty B IIIís crew Captain Vicente Cosio and deckhand Nestor Crespo had a great day. Five minutes after Mr. Hazard and Derek landed the 80 lbs tuna, they got hook again to this nice 531 lbs blue marlin. They were both caught on a large Petrolero lure with a 50W Penn International reel with 80 lbs Maxima line. Esaul landed the fish after 45 minute fight.  
Greg Heppler with this nice 315 lbs blue marlin. He was fishing on the Marina with captain Cristian Greg Gong with a nice roosterfish, while fishing on the Dusty B II with captain Alejandro.
The hotel is looking very nice with the new roofs in our rooms and new hammocks.

Water Temperature:  Really good sea condition with Thursday as an exception as we had rain and a little wind that got everyone went, but besides that our ocean couldn't be any better .   

 

Air Temperature:  Very nice and hot, but late in the week a very nice breeze has blown during the latter part of the day and cooling the day off very nicely. It has been cloudy most of the week, with big clouds up in the Sierra de La Laguna chain, and it was nice to get wet two days in a row, but just enough to start getting everything green here. Great weather anyways.

 

Fishing Spots and Distance: Blues are hitting where the tuna are, this is around 30-40 miles out, but there has also been several blues hitting while fishing for stripers, around 20-35 miles. You could see the boats fishing for dorado from the hotel, you can imagine how close they were. Snapper together with some small tuna in the "pescaderos" (Fish wholes) in front of La Rivera. Distances range from 15:00 to  1:45  minutes depending what you want to fish for.      

 

Off-shore Fishing: Big tuna up over 100 lbs you can find the school and they'll take a while to bite, but once the bite starts you are in for a good fight. Also my brother caught the 531 lbs blue right after catching a 80 lbs tuna, so they are there as well. Dorado is very close and they are school dorado, small to medium sizes, small tuna are also biting here. Very good size snappers in the morning right in front of La Rivera.

 

In-shore Fishing:  Nice size roosters around the sandy beaches, but you got to be patience, specially due too the many needlefish. We went bottom fishing, and it was great we caught over 10 species of small to medium size fish. A lot of fun and action, the best if you are bringing your kids, so they can get hook on fishing.  

 

Successful Lures:  Petrolero (brown with orange and little gray), Chivato (Yellow, orange, with black stripes), Purpura (black with purple) are the best. I won't change them as they continue to be hot. Once again I leave it as they are, for fishing

 

Bait Used: Some makcerel, caballitos and the sardine was not as good as last week, it seems to be very small, captains opting better to stay with the mackerel.  Dorados are eating chum too, therefore no need of sardine.

 

Highlight of the Week: Good to very good over all fishing. You can go and not fish anything, but you can also go and catch the tuna or billfish of a lifetime.

 

 

See you next week!
