Dear Portofino Friends and Family,
as you may know Tropical Storm Matthew passed by today over Belize… We had some strong winds and the ocean was very rough. The high tide is going down and the wind is back to normal. At noon our boat left to San Pedro for arrivals and departures. Continental and Tropic Air are flying. Our guests had fun on the beach this morning, taking pictures and shooting videos. We lost a few boards from our dock but we are putting them back as we speak. The sun is now shining over here and it is time to start cleaning up, while our guests are swimming already in the pool.
At the moment we have our guests Nicole and Jameson staying here with us, for their well deserved Honeymoon here at Portofino Beach Resort. Jameson is a true fishing passionate who has been a professional fisherman for many many years.
Because Jameson’s heart is into fishing, and did a lot of research regarding Belize, he did not only come to Belize for his honeymoon but also came here to attend the “El Dorado Rodeo 2010”, which was held past Saturday, May 22nd 2010, with the official weigh in and trophy ceremony at the Holiday Hotel, located in the center of San Pedro Town.
Taking the well deserved first place with ‘The Reel Deal’ with Captain Hillyboo Lara, having his son Byron reeling in the largest 22lbs. Dorado, giving him the prize for Top Junior Angler. Not only the boat got manned by the two of them, our guests Nicole and Jameson where part of the team. The second largest Dorado 19lbs. got caught by our guest Jameson, however didn’t t got recognized as the same boat and team couldn’t makefirst and second place at the same time.
Nicole and Jameson where very happy with the results and adventure they had that day. Nicole, was great as well, as she caught herself a 20 lbs barracuda, which took her about 25 minutes, and another fish caught by Jameson during this exciting event was a 4lbs. Skip Jack.
