PHOTO GALLERY AND FISHING AND CONDITION REPORT   WEEK: JULY 4TH WEEK.
Of course the dinner was in our beautiful beach, this is the main place of our tournament award ceremony. It is very nice to see that most of everyone guest and neighbors know each other already, so everything makes for a great ambiance. Mr. and Mrs. Sales, the absolute winners of the 8th Annual Big Game Blowout. They alone captained, dekhanded and fought and released two blue marlins, and they close the day by taking the dorado jackpot with this beautiful bull at 47.7 lbs. Congratulations to our neighbors. 
Of course the Tecate girls couldn't be left out. We like to thank all of our sponsors for their support. Everyone is getting ready to go in our dock. The third pictures is the start of the 1 day tournament were we had 22 boats.
We are happy to start seeing more and more divers to come and explore our exciting ocean.
This past two weeks were very nice and special as we had Mr. and Mrs. Gong, Mr. Sweeney and Mr. and Mrs. Simms we, as always, enjoyed their company. We ate very well, as Mr. Simms is a wonderful cheff, we bet a few bucks in the rooster fights and we definitely fish a lot. 
We like to thank Mr. Simms for sending us this very nice pictures. Here we have them each fighting their tuna, all of them above the 100 lbs mark, but it was Jeff's tuna the biggest one at 185 lbs. The funniest thing was that these all tunas were caught before the tournament, and the one that got them jackpot money was a nice 11.2 lbs tuna that won over a few others. Greg Sweeney learned his lesson as two years ago, he would have won the tuna jackpot money with a football tuna, but they decided to make it sashimi before weighting it, and lost the money, this time they were sure to weight it before eating it.  
Not only did they fish off shore, they also came inshore. Here Greg with a nice rooster, Greg and Beth with some dorados and pargos. But I think Jeff did the best recipes with the tunas.
You think you need to be a pro to fish two over 100 lbs tuna and the same day. The Weiber showed everyone wrong with this nice tunas caught while fishing with Victor Sr. on the Vamonos.

This week we also hosted our great friends El Maestro Ronnie Kovach and Steve Carson the "Walking Encyclopedia". Also this year they had as special guest Mrs. Beverley "Baja Bev" Seltzer and we they had plenty of fish every day, as you can see they concentrated mainly in-shore, they ended up with about 21 different species of fish, and what it could have been a world record.  I sneak in with them a day for some serious fishing. Ronnie was so hot that we were fishing for pargos in front of La Rivera and he hooked and fighted a stripped marlin for a few minutes. Steve hooked a, what we thought it was a big wahoo, as it broke the line nice and clean. Baj Bev got a nice 5 lbs clas spotted rose snapper that we later found out that could have been and IGFA world record. I am sure she will be back to see about that world record. We had a lot of fun, and we are happy that Ronnie shot enough film for a few shows.

Water Temperature:  Our water continues to be at it best, with regular temperatures in the mid 80's.   

 

Air Temperature:  Nice weather, hot, but very nice since the breeze helps a lot. 

 

Fishing Spots and Distance: Fishing our bay continues to be the best beat for almost anything. We will see this coming week as the Bisbee will have boats looking further for bigger fish.       

 

Off-shore Fishing: Early in the week, 3 tunas over 100 lbs, and one up to 185lbs.  But it was an 11.6 lbs tuna the one that won the cash during our Big Game Blowout Tournament. Tuna came back later in the week, but only three were weighted in during our tournament.  But it was our friends and neighbors Mr. and Mrs. Woody the ones that impressed everyone as they caught and released 2 blues and took the dorado jack pot with a very nice 47.6 lbs dorado, this is all it took to have them as our winners of this year Big Game Blowout.

 

In-shore Fishing:  I don't know if we should call it in-shore fishing, but the dorado continue to be caught way close to our beaches. It has also been great for smaller species. Ronnie Kovach, Steve Carson and Beverly Saltzer were down this past week and they had extremely good in-shore 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.  NO CHANGE HERE AGAIN!!

 

Bait Used: Some makcerel, caballitos and the sardine. Sardine back to its normal. Captains this past week requested more ballyhood as they were really handy for dorado and stripers. 

 

Highlight of the Week: The highlight has to go to the big tunas caught early in the week. One boat with up to two over a 100 lbs tunas in the Vamonos and the 185 caught by our friend Mr. Jeff Simms. Also we cannot leave them out, our friends and neighbors Mr. and Mrs. Woody as they were fishing by themselves. They almost took everything in the tournament, with their 2 blues and their big dorado.

 

 

See you next week!
