Well there went Oct in like a lamb, out like well a lamb. That’s not to say we didn’t have some great days fishing but, it just wasn’t the normal craziness we have grown to expect in Baja during October.
La Paz has had a pretty good showing of tourists during the fall which is a blessing as we deal with so much uncertainty through this craziness. That being said the government is starting to take some additional steps to damper down the rise in COVID.
The malecón once again has a curfew and the government is clamping down on large gatherings, which is all good but, hopefully it won’t scare people from coming down. Regarding water activities everything is still open and we are still optimistic that we will be able to offer the ever so popular whale shark adventures. Fingers crossed. The beginning of the week we had our real first wind from the North, one day strong enough to close the port. The North wind is our prevailing wind in the winter and will continue to increase in frequency as we continue into the season.
Sardines are still plentiful and can be purchased on the way out to the fishing grounds.
