This was a great week at the resort. As you can tell by the photos here, we had a diverse group of guests doing a lot of different things. The fishing was especially great for this time of year, and that made the anglers happy. The Dusty B II had a prolific week of fishing, along with a snorkel and fun-in-the-sun trip with some spring breakers (Gayle, Juan Verde and her folks) up to the Giggling Marlin near Los Planes (think north about 90 minutes by sea). The dogs enjoyed their trip too! The Martin VonBargen group had a spectacular day of fishing, as is evidenced by their catch (above left) and so did the Farbolitos (above right.) The Bruce Family spent a day adventure touring up in the mountains, and took dips in natural hot pools, hiked to waterfalls and visited the Santiago Zoo. The weather could not have been more perfect. The sea is warming up daily. At Bahia de los Muertos (or Bahia de los Sueņos as it's now called) we measured the temperature at 73 degrees. Not too shabby!

Water Temperature:   The water temperature has been rising steadily since the wind has left us, at least for now! The sea is like glass and beautiful.

Weather Temperature:  Spring has arrived early this year and the weather is spectacular. The wind has gone, and every day has been hot with only light breezes in the afternoons. It promises to be a record fishing year.

Fishing Spots and Distance:  The fishing spots and distance were mostly concentrated to the south of the hotel near the lighthouse. 

Off-shore Fishing:  The off-shore fishing was mainly for dorado and striped marlin. As the water temperature continues to rise, the fishing will improve dramatically.  

In-shore Fishing: The inshore fishing has been productive in the mornings for sierra.  All along the coast they've been prolific. 

Successful Lures:  For artificial lures, the colors seem to be different every day.  

Bait Used:  Bait pangas have been out every day, and as more boats are out fishing, they are getting better bait. .

Highlight of the Week:  Angel Ortiz took a group of journalists from Spain to Magdalena Bay to visit whales. Check out the photos in this week's photo gallery.
