Another week of warm sunny weather, no new storms developing at this time, so far the Eastern Pacific has seen fewer storms than normal this far into
the season. We were dealing with swirling winds up to 20 mph, blowing from the south, as well as the north, hard to predict. Light crowds of tourists
arriving, about a 30% percentage of Resort and restaurants are open. We expect light crowds will continue until October and November when we do
plan to see the usually busy period.

Water conditions were clearing up, blue water moving into the San Luis and Iman Banks regions, this should help improve the surfce gamefish action.
There has been scattered action for billfish, mainly further offshore, more striped marlin, but also a few blue marlin now being hooked into.

For the first week in a long time, we saw dorado coming in to the fish counts, fish up to 20 lb., caught trolling bait, as well as on trolling
lures, some charters landed three or four. Bait supplies consisted mainly of caballito, also some mullet available. We did not hear of any wahoo
landed. There were a handful of yellowfin tuna being hooked into, some on the San Luis Bank, up to 50 lb., they hit on caballito and on yo-yo jigs,
same grounds where snapper bite has been going on. Other schools of tuna were found 20 to 30 miles offshore traveling with moving porpoise, though
that was not a normal charter option with how winds have been, not to mention high fuel costs.

Through much of the week there was good early morning red snapper action found for anglers while dropped yo-yo jigs on the San Luis Bank, some of
these snapper weighed up to 14 lb., most were in the 6 to 12lb. class. This tapered off over the weekend, same time we saw cleaner water and some
dorado and tuna move onto these grounds.

Trophy sized roosterfish continue to patrol the beach stretches, we saw roosterfish to over 50 lb. caught and released, it is now reaching the late
part of the roosterfish season, also we are seeing much fewer schooling mullet action along the beaches. Jack crevalle was the other gamefish that
were abundant close to shore, as well as a handful of dogtooth snapper and pargo colorado.

Light crowds, good fishing, Eric
