95th Dark of the Moon

Hotel Playa Del Sol
Oct. 28th – Nov. 3rd, 2009

For the first time in 5 years, the Tuna ignored us, as we experienced early winter winds from the north. For the good news however, every angler caught at least 1 Sailfish in the 2 day event.

All of the 2010 information will be sent out this month. All of the bait and water signs point to a spectacular year in 2010. Playa Del Sol has improved the beds with foam pads.

There are some new cooks in the kitchen and all of the meals were excellent. They have also instituted more table service, as opposed to buffets.

See you next year and June is already filling up. Call soon!

Another beautiful sun up and the boats waiting for anxious anglers.
