Just Another Day on the Job

It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it. Pictured here are Captain Enrique Martinez on the right and deckhand Beto Lira on the left, aboard our 28 ft Adriana. Beto is usually the deckhand on Ruthless but joined Enrique this was snapped by Mike Vise. This is their office....what does yours look like? Enrique has been fishing these waters for almost 40 years, so I guess you could say he has quite a bit of experience. Beto has a very pleasant personality and since joining the Ruthless the catch rates of his boat have soared. Our catch success rates for the month of August were very high at 97% for all species combined.

Wow The Landscape has Changed

Hurricane Jimena did leave one good thing and that was some rain. Though people in the north of the state are still suffering the after effects, Cabo is enjoying a transformation of the landscape. In less than one week the desert has bloomed, now clothed with marvellous greenery. There is a coolness in the early morning and late evening that is very welcome. Tournament season begins next month and crews are eager for the competition.
