Hurricane Patricia did not get near us, and we had no damaging wind. But as predicted, the tail swung over us and we got a lot of rain. I recorded 18 inches in a 36 hour period, with 10 of the inches falling in a 12 hour period last Friday night.

Offshore – The offshore remains the same with two sailfish and a shot at a blue marlin are the average here per boat, per day. All marlin are being taken on a slow trolled black skipjack, from 3 to 8 miles off the beach.
With all the rain, fresh water, and debris coming out of the numerous rivers along the coast, we thought the Inshore was going to get blown out with stained water. But, the strong blue water current, which was up against the beach, quickly dispatched the worse of it.
Long time visitor Russ Weaver of Corvallis OR, arrived the Tuesday previous, wanting two days on the water with Adolfo on the panga Dos Hermanos. By Saturday the taxi boats were working the bay, and he was able to fish Sunday and Monday. The surf was still a bit high and there was a strong surge in the bay.
But, considering it was just a few days after a huge hurricane passed us by, the boat did very well getting 6 roosters and several large jack crevalle.
The ocean has calmed down, we are getting out of the full moon period, and the fishing is good.
Russ Weaver took this photo of trying to unload the panga with a surge in the bay at the small dock we must all now use behind the Port Captain's office. He said it took almost 10 minutes to unload empty fuel cans, fish, gear, and people. The surge would sweep the boat away, and then then would have to time it again, and get into position.
The small dock is the only one available to use now, and cruisers can't even do that.
