With air temps in the mid-90s and water temps in the mid-80s, at times our sea seemed to be too hot for fish to stick around. Fortunately, we have had a little blessed rain in the area and water temps cooled a bit.

We are back on track with tuna, dorado, marlin, and wahoo; while our roosterfish stayed on the hot bite throughout. As for bottom fishing, there have been great catches in the last few days.

Ballyhoo and sardines have been great bait for tuna and billfish along with squid for chumming. Near El Rincon, several tuna were landed while using squid; while at La Ribera Banks, marlin were consistently biting very well. Roosterfish are being spotted and landed all along the coastline from right in front of Hotel Buenavista all the way to the lighthouse.

We’re seeing more and more old friends and past guests including Joe Galindo, Tan Tibo, Kenny Horton and Michael Fuizzotti, all from the Chico area in Northern California. They had an excellent time fishing aboard Nath and Mich with Captain and friend Felipe Valdez, Valentina with Captain Valentin Castro along with the Dottie BII with longtime Buena Vista skipper Captain Vicente Cosio and deckhand Marco Garcia. They landed a variety of fish including dorado, tuna, pargo, striped marlin and sailfish.

Ed Rogers, visiting from Boise, Idaho, fished aboard the Dottie BII, hooked, played and released both sailfish and roosterfish. Great job guys!

Gary Williams visiting us from Billings, Montana, came looking for roosterfish and that’s what he got fishing aboard Nath and Mich with Captain Felipe Valdez. Congrats, amigo
