This past week my family was honor with the visit of our long time friends  Ed & Marty Geib, Bob & Leslie Kunde,  Stan & Doris Long along with other friends to celebrate a very important date. Mr. and Mrs. Geib and Mr. and Mrs. Kunde were celebrating their 50th year wedding anniversary and Mr. and Mrs. Long were celebrating their 40th year anniversary. Here is the special dinner celebration organized by my mom and of course Hortencia. 


Dear Chuy and Imelda, Hortensia, Stan and Doris, Verde and Leroy, J D and Cathy, Izzy, Leslie and Bobby,
Just a little note to say thank you to all of you for a wonderful anniversary party at Buenavista. We cannot thank you enough for attending and making it a special day for us. We got first class on the return flight and special recognition by the flight crew also.
Love you all,
Marty and Ed


We had the visit of the Mochis group this past week. They navigated from the main land about 90 nautical miles. They adventure down to the resort to fish on our waters. This is just one of 5 vessels that fished with us. This week finally, after a really bad trip and a long wait, The "Dusty B III" has made its entrance to our fleet. It is a brand new 29' Blackman and it will be captain by Vicente who used to be on the Dusty B II.
Cliff Berns and Camille Marcione Joseph Pirro and friends from Citizens Mortgage.
Kut Stearus and son from Granada Hills, CA
Mr. Troncoso a good friend from Tijuana, but now living in San Jose and of course living the good life.
Arnold Vicnoni from Lake Havasu, AZ
Willam Barbour from El Paso, TX
Axel & Gina,
Thank you so much for all of your hospitality!  I truly felt as if I was at home at the hotel.  If there's ever anything I can do for either of you, please don't hesitate to ask.  I've attached a picture from the dock of the Buena Vista with some of the fish I caught.  In the picture is:
Erik deVreeze from Oakland, CA.
10 Yellowfin Tuna & a 65 pound Dorado.
Also caught that day & released a 200 pound Striped Marlin.
Please keep in touch and THANK YOU AGAIN for all you have done

Water Temperature:  Arturo reported temperatures up to 84degrees. The summer is here and you can feel it.

Air Temperature:  Let me rephrase last week note. Summer is here, not around the corner, temperature were up to 97, but with the nice breeze during the day, all you need is shade. 

Fishing Spots and Distance: Fishing grounds this week vary a lot depending on what you wanted to fish. You can start fishing from 50 feet from the dock or you can go 45 miles for tuna. .    

Off-shore Fishing: Marlin considerably close from 15 to 25 miles, or 45 miles if you want to go to "Las Destiladeras" where they found a lot. Tuna definitely 40 to 45 miles South in front of Punta Arena to Los Frailes, Arturo's comments is that it is probably because the bait found there, since there have been finding it about the same area for a few days. Dorado very much in the same grounds as the marlin. Wahoo, some but not many, and you know what happen when you are not ready for them. Blue marlin, our recently promoted captain, Chuy on the Hakuna, was fishing with a guest 30 lbs outfit when a estimated 300 pounder hit and broke the line; they are definitely here is just a matter of a lot of patience.

In-shore Fishing:  Should I mentioned it again? or do you get the picture?, the best inshore fishing in a long time. On the surface or bottom fishing.

Successful Lures:  Good fishing equals all the colors are working. captains are putting a variety out and they will change all of them except the one that are being hit. 

Bait Used:  No bait problems, plenty of bait this past week. Caballitos and sardine, and you complement this with some ballyhoos and you are set.  

Highlight of the Week: We can continue talking about the off-shore fishing, but it is the in-shore fishing that continues to offer the best action. You must try it and if you like challenge bring your bass fishing equipment. then you will know what is in-shore fishing is all about. 

See you next week!
