PHOTO GALLERY AND FISHING AND CONDITION REPORT   WEEK: JULY 4TH WEEK.

Greg Sweeney from Sacramento California with a beautiful 70 lbs wahoo caught on the Dusty B III with Captain Vicente Cosio. Greg is always accompanied by Greg and Beth Gong and Jeff Sims. It has now become a tradition to go the rooster fights at the town annual saint town-party of Santiago, we always have a great time and sometimes we even win our bets. Our heart and prayers are with Mr. Sweeney and his family as they overcome the passing of his mom.

 

Middle picture is Mr. Greg Gong with a nice tuna, they caught 40 on this day, not bad!!! Ohhh! and I almost forgot the 3 striped marlin caught and released on this day as well, plus Mr. Sweeney nice wahoo, and ohh!! yes all in one day of fishing.

 

And finally Mr. Jeff Simms with a nice 38 lbs dorado, here in the picture with Julio Amador, who was deckhand. Mr. Sims is the executive chef for The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach Florida, and not only has he thought Oscar, our chef, some great recipes, but he has overwhelmed us with such great dinners for the whole family. We are always happy to see them, and we feel like he is part of the hotel, as he is in the kitchen as much as anybody in the family, we really enjoyed his company as well as his brother and law Greg and wife Beth’s, and of course Mr. Sweeney.

 

All pictures courtesy of Mr. Simms, not only a great chef, but a wonderful photographer.

We received these great pictures from our friend Mrs. Duty. Thank you very much for sending them.

This pictures are forever.

 

Hola,

 Wanted to send some photos and tell you what a great time we had.  David, Laura, Jess & Melany Duty; we stayed the week of July 11th.   This was our second trip to Hotel Buena Vista and we’ll be back next year. Everyone is so nice and helpful, especially Ramiro and his Mai Tai’s! 

I enclosed a photo of Jess and his first Marlin catch on July 12th with Marcos. 

2nd photo is of a sailfish David brought in and released.

3rd photo is Melany and the Pompano she brought up and released.

Once again thank you so much and we can’t wait until next year.

 

Adiós,

Water Temperature:  Water has continued to nice and warm, it seems like it is getting ready for the big tournament, everything is falling in place.

 

Air Temperature:  This week finally the thermometer reach the 100 mark, but just for a day. The nice ocean breeze have kept the temperature summer reasonable. We had some rain up in the mountain with a big one on Thursday, but it seem like we are cover by a big roof, at it keeps missing us here in Buena Vista.

 

Fishing Spots and Distance: Even though there were days were the tuna was found only 13 miles out from the hotels, there other days where boats were coming back from fishing quite late, due to long distances. Stripers continue to be close about 10 to 25 miles.  

 

Off-shore Fishing: Again, and with this I invite you to see the results of last year tuna vs. this year's tunas consistency has paid off and we are having a hell of a year, and this will hopefully continue as the our water stabilized quite late this year. Blues couldn't find a better time to come out to bite, there were three this past week, and we are hosting the Bisbee next week, we'll see what we have next week. Stripers continue to offer great action, even for fly caster as they have had more chances this year than any before.

 

In-shore Fishing: Even without the sardine fishing from inshore is always good, Dan Hernandez was here this past week and he held a Surf Fishing Tournament, and there over 15 fishermen and over 10 different species of fish, just in front of the hotel. Needlefish, Jacks, trigger fish, lady fish, and the winner was a nice pampano and a huge puffer fish. Rooster continue to bite well, from La Rivera all the way to El Rincon, still as no sardine around you have to troll and be patience for a nice rooster.

 

Bait Used: Mullet, little jacks and radadillos. A few sardines where found, but not many to get our hopes up, I am only going to add some mackerels.

 

Highlight of the Week:  We are excited about this week tournament, as the blues showed up right on time. On the Dan Herandez group, there were 3 caught, 2 over 300 already. We are ready for some big fish.

 

See you next week!!!
