Fishing anyone?

A few weeks ago on January 19th, I woke up and looked out the window. There was a cruise ship coming in.

And very slightly to the right of us a group of fishermen were pulling up a fishing net onto the beach.

I had just gotten up and was not dressed to go to the beach. So I will let Fred Wicks photos show you what happened. He was right in the thick of the action.

This was the largest haul any of us can recall in all the years that we have been here.

So many fish.

They were mostly toro.

More fish than what their containers could hold so they started filling the bottom of their boat. Great to watch from our RV but much more exciting seen on the beach. Thank you Fred for sharing your photos.

This next wee link came from Sue & Mike who visited us last week. After Colin had dropped them off at the ferry Sue look this 40 second video before they boarded the ferry. The girls are hilarious as Colin tries to get them away from the net. Colin is wearing a yellow shirt.

    Hi contessa, hope U all are doing well; I’m adjuncting the follow warning I just picked up from the news ( one ounce of prevention…) ” The U.S. recently issued its highest-level warning for areas inside Guerrero, Colima, Michoacan, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Zacatecas.” My regards: Lucy.

    1. Well sadly we have to drive through the length of Sinaloa to get home. But we only spend one night on the road there and are hidden behind a gas station. We are not concerned.
