Tropical Storm Patricia

1.21 PM Monday, October 12th
With tournaments approaching, such as the Los Cabos Billfish, anglers are nervously keeping an eye on the weather. What started out as a tropical depression as few days ago has now become a tropical storm. As we speak Tropical Storm Patrica is 245 miles south of Cabo moving NW at 8mph with 50 mph winds. So what are we experiencing?
Right now nothing much, we have had rain since yesterday, at times very light and mist like and then a few downpours, all much appreciated. Strangely the Port Captain who usually closes the port if somebody sneezes, let the boats go out today. It has been rough and one of our boats came back by 10.30 am with anglers that felt queasy, though they did get four dorado. So it looks like more rain today and wind and rain tonight. At this stage we don't expect it to affect the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament set to start fishing on Wednesday. If the port is closed, the tournament will probably go to a two day format, though organizers will confirm that.
