Tropical Storm Patricia Update #2

Tuesday, Oct. 13th 2.23 pm
We had quite a bit of rain last night off and on but zero wind. This morning at 6.30 it was totally calm no rain, no wind and you could see the stars. Anglers were chomping at the bit, lunches were all made and ready to go and THEY CLOSED THE PORT! Yes it was raining a bit, but then the sun came out, seas are calm and we couldn't go fishing....honestly it was rougher yesterday. So now we have to scramble to reschedule boats and anglers and take a loss on everything that was prepared for today such as lunches. Right now though we are getting ready for the check-in for the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament, which will be at 4.00 pm today. The captain's meeting will be at 6.00 pm. Numbers of entries are expected to be down somewhat due to the economy. However, Pisces has a great gift for each team, we will giving them a brand new copy of Gene Kira's "The Unforgettable Sea of Cortez", a book that we sponored the publishing of for its second edition. This book is truly a treasure and we couldn't bear to see it disappear. On Amazon we saw copies from between $50.00 all the way up to over $600.00 so this truly is a much, sought after book. It describes and shows in pictures the Baja of yesteryear, even the contruction of now gone icons like the Hotel Cabo San Lucas, with Bud Parr the developer pictured with other Cabo locals when they were much younger. The book is available through Pisces and we encourage you to get a copy.
