Ramon on the 3 Hermanos after a day of fishing. Ramon and Chuy long time crew of the 3 Hermanos were split this year as Chuy was promoted to captain of the Hakuna Matata after a several years of training. He is brother to Arturo, Rosario (Chayo) and Santiago all very good fishermen and a great family. Rosario (Chayo) has become one of the most popular captains in our fleet. We are very happy for him. He daily teach us a lesson of life and courage as he had to work harder for that position after loosing an arm in a car accident many years ago.

Bryan Jacobs from Yoakom, Texas. Fishes with Jose on the Vagabundo. They had to keep this one, but they released a white marlin, which they aren't too many in the Sea of CortÚs. They also caught a nice mid-size wahoo.

Water Temperature:   Not much change this past week, but Arturo mentioned that it did go down a little with some currents from the South.

Air Temperature:  Very nice weather this past week, weather continues to be Spring weather most of the week it only went up to 88-89, which is great.  

Fishing Spots and Distance: Boats started to look farther for good fishing as this week the fishing scatter all over our fishing grounds. We had boat fishing from Los Frailes point all the way North to el Cardonal.

Off-shore Fishing: The fish is here the problem is getting the to bite, specially the striped marlin, Arturo said that they are around and you can see them, but getting them to hit is different still few boats come without a hook up, but definitely less than the past two weeks. Dorado again was hit and miss, and a few wahoo hits as well. Tuna was found late in the week by one of the boats from the other resort, but the first to find them is the one getting all the action, and you could see the tuna, but not many bites for the boats that came after. But yet again is a less than a flip of a coin if you go out for tuna, be prepared to come with all the glory or no flag flying.  

In-shore Fishing: In shore continues to offer the best and most consistent bite in the bay, with great fishing from right in front of the hotel all the way to Punta Arena, with good quality and quantity.  

Successful Lures:   Mean-Joe-Green and petreloero best this past week, but Captain Jose from the Vagabundo said that there were a lot of fly-fish  out from Los Frailes that may means that we could be seeing different color lures strike next week, we'll see!.

Bait Used:  This past week the bait was no problem as the bait guys found caballito and plenty of sardine. And with the option of the ballyhood you are cover.

Highlight of the Week:  A white marlin was caught this week, not many of them come in to the Sea of CortÚs. Fishing was definitely harder than last week, but they are here and we should see a big improvement over the coming week.

See you next week!
