PHOTO GALLERY AND FISHING AND CONDITION REPORT   WEEK: AUGUST 4TH WEEK.
Our great friends from Big Bear Lake Rotary club visited us this past week for their annual trip to East Cape. It was a great fishing trip for everyone. We were happy to see them and we look forward for next year.

Mr. Al Larson (left) and Mr. Dave Cooper (Right), our long time friends and expert fly-fishermen. They visited us from Denver Colorado on their annual saltwater fly-fishing trip, together with six more friends, all of them coming to fly fish.

This year was definitely special, as Mr. Larson caught and released an estimated 200 lbs blue marlin on the fly. This happen while fishing with their long time captain Juan Garcia on the Mosca on August 25th. It is a major accomplishment and we congratulate Mr. Larson on it.  Here in the picture both of them, with two tunas caught, they normally will bring one or two fish to have enough in the kitchen for the whole week.

Mr. Wendt and Mr. Zeiler with a nice looking amberjacks and pargos. Just another day of good fishing. Artus and Mr. Brown also part of this year fly-fishing expedition to our resort. A few days of good fishing and great friends.

Water Temperature:  This week water reported among the warmest so far this year, but the rains early in the week regularized its temperature. 

 

Air Temperature:  Conditions this week were affected by Hillary, a storm that sent some rain and wind, as it was turning East about 500 miles South of us, still me we managed to catch some fish. But it was getting even better as everything was settling in by the end of the week.  

 

Fishing Spots and Distance: It has been a short ride to the fishing grounds, still winds made it uncomfortable early in the week, once Hillary moved away everything started going very strong and very close.

 

Off-shore Fishing: Early in the week with the winds and all, our fleet continue to score some billfish, still a lot of the fishing was being done right in front of La Rivera, where they found some tuna, pargo, amberjack and skip-jacks. Latter in the week they found sardine and great tuna fishing under the porpoises. 

 

In-shore Fishing: In-shore was definitely the most affected by the visiting storm, but everything was fine one everything came back to normal. Still our good friends Mr. Cooper, Larson, Artus, Brown, Wendt and Zeiler managed to do very well with the fly.

 

Bait Used: It was stuff getting bait early in the week, but we manage to get some caballitos, mackerel, among other bait, but the good news is that by the end of the week, the bait guys were selling sardine down by La Rivera, this is a first this year.

 

Highlight of the Week:  Of course we have heard of a lot of blues being caught in the past week, but this is definitely a high light of the week and probably among the best of the whole year. Mr. Al Larson landed and successfully released a blue on the fly. Our most sincere congrats on this great accomplishment. OUR STANDING OVATION and OUR HATS OFF TO HIM.

 

See you next week!!!
