Our big news this week was Hurricane Raymond, which came to within 85 miles of the port, was pointed right at us, and then stalled out. Once again we can thank the Sierra Madres behind us for keeping these pesky named storms off our beaches. For more information about how the Sierra Madres help us, please review the link to the article I wrote:
Factual information about our rain season: http://rainseasonedkunze4.blogspot.mx/2013/06/the-rain-season-contents-introduction.html
All we got out of the category III Hurricane Raymond was three days of port closures and 3 days of a steady light rain, with absolutely no wind. Even though the rain was steady 24 hours a day, we only got a total of 5 inches out of it. So, we got real lucky again.
This last Sunday, John Lorenz of the Bahia de Tortuga Fishing Lodge in Puerto Vicente Guerrero, had Larry and Karissa Shields and Allen and Sandy Shields from Las Vegas fishing on two boats for a combined total of 4 sailfish and 12 dorado. Then the rains set in that afternoon and cut their 3 day fishing trip short.

Today (Thursday) was the first chance for us to get back on the water, so it was a complete unknown of what was happening out there. Were the inshore beaches discolored due to the rain? Had the blue water moved out? Were the current lines still there holding the debris washed out of the rivers? Fortunately, when I went to the Municipal Pier this morning before 6:00, I found out two of the best captains we have here had clients and would be able to let us know what was going on.

Offshore, Santiago on the super panga Gitana, fished with clients Tamera McCurly of Minn. and her fishing partner Julie of Utah. They got 2 decent dorado and 1 sailfish released. Santiago told me the 84° water was clean at about 12 miles and blue at 15. Their fish came around the 14 mile mark.

learn to not cut the heads off his clients.
