Wouldn't a link to the pertinent information about the tournament, be timely at this point in the discussion? Aren't we about 36 hours from the start? Or am I mistaken?

Somebody set me straight. All I hear is hearsay in the bars.

Of course, not from CATCHA Lotta. No, he has sworn his crew to secrecy in the bars....... and complete radio silence on the water, as they pre-fish here and there.

And their secrets WOULD be safe; but for my stealthy use of a pair of Fujinon image-stabilizing binocs, feeding my smart phone, video recorder that records lat/long numbers. I even have the high-tech, lure-recognition software installed!

You can run, change your boat's name to CATCHA Lotta, but you can't hide, boys!

There is a Facebook page. Type in San Carlos Yellowtail Tournament. Decent trolling bite on the North end today. Pando sounded slow at least until midday. The fish I saw weren't that big. There are some 20#+ fish around the Seamounts. Maybe they were just off after the full moon. With your entry you get dinner, a shirt, and entry to the overall big fish jackpot. Only $20 additional entry for the daily big fish. I think the two of those was over $1000 last year. No one's forcing you to fish all day, both days, or as a team, so some of you 'lone wolfs' are welcome to enter.

Doesn't ANYONE here use Facebook? Maybe Brian posted results from yesterday over there.

Brian did sound rather disappointed with the results during the 8am lines OUT call. But he was still sounding positive about today.

Wind is supposed to be up more, today. But not as bad as originally predicted. 15 knots max, or so they say. We are already getting gusts to 8-10 out of the north in the Ranchitos.

My wife has Facebook and I just checked that page-results posted are zero-there are no posts except the flyer. So Brian did not post it here or there.

That was probably Jon on the radio. I was out on a cruise, but I think it was Fins up (????) who caught six in the morning with one going 26#. They weren't in the jackpot though. Zancudo had a 22#. Warpath 14#. Shasta 4.6#. Not sure of the total boat count. 


The water is turning over in places. There is also an insane amount of bait in places. I can't believe that it's mostly crab in close. I bet it is very small baitfish. I guess the 'big fish' marks that I tried at the Seamounts and later San Antonio were just barracuda - based on one last pass catch. I heard one report that a huge school of yellowtail was off San Antonio last week. The same thing happened last year. Good numbers will show soon. Just pray for those out today that may be cursing God, rather than thanking him for the joyful pain of jigging all day, the fresh breeze warmer than its origin up north, and the hope that a fish will bite.

The sun is strong. Showed 72 in the afternoon in the middle on Terrafin. Looks like a few rounds coming in off the Pacific though. The fronts are back.

Fins Up took 1st overall with about 151#. They may have had two today. They had the big fish today also, but Telamon won at 18# the jackpot. Theirs was 20#. 7 fish caught today. I believe Zancudo was second with two fish. Definitely by far the lowest catches ever.


A friend said he talked to some guys from White Rock area that boasted that they netted 200 tons last year - like 30,000 fish. Sounds unbelievable. I'm still sure those sardine boats net millions of babies.

Yet, I assume that netting that many fish is legal. Nothing to stop them from doing it. Heck, even if it was ILLEGAL, there's nothing to stop them from doing it.


There is a good chance those net boats up by White Rock could be based out of El Colorado or Japonese. Those are the two closest significant panga operations. I had hoped that all the pesos that gringos spend up there for conservation would somehow prevent this kind of thing from happening.


But if it is legal, there's nothing they could do, anyway.

We can tell our great grandchildren that we saw the beginning of the end of fish in the Sea of Cortez.

Buying a fishing license on this side is an absolute waste of money, if it doesn't even contribute to less enforcement.

Yeah, areas of Baja are much more in-tune with conservation. And there IS enforcement over there.
