Hi guys,
As always happens there are good things and bad things about storms. Im sorry about all of you who were here the first half of the month and couldnt go out or that had to cancel their trips. We all down here we feel bad as we know how much you are waiting for the days of your vacations and coming down and not been able to go out, and it sucks for all involved. But the ones who were able to come down they been enjoying one of the best week of fishing in recent years.

This week we hosted the Okuma Fishing USA crew, from President to all the reps around the US, and what a great week they had. Few personal best ever, some first fish ever and lots of testing reels and lures.

I was lucky enough to fish with most of them, specially with Mr Doug Lasko (President of Okuma USA) and his wife Mia. Also with Sam Brenner Vice president, John Bretza (director of product development) that many of you know him from all the shows, Capt Steve Montgomery, Gil Perez, and others. I can thank this guys enough to request me. Is the first time since they been coming to my family resort that I took them out as guide and hope they all enjoyed spending time in the water with me as I did with them.

Who ever is coming down this last part of september I would say that you will have a great time and have good fishing days. There is lots of bait all kinds and that makes a big difference.

Here are some of the catches we had this week.

If you are planning to come down any time soon check me out I might be able to help you out.

Tight lines!

Thank you! Yes we were lucky to live this experience. The last one that Gil landed, was crusing on surface, I put the boat on a good distance for casting, and he throw a popper to it, and hook it, great job by him.
