    Anybody hear about this? Gruesome!

    Someone once told me ocean hookah diving is illegal in Mexico, just not enforced like a lot of other things. Anyone know if that's true?

    Going to Puerto Penasco Weekend Before Christmas to Fish... Advice on Travel? Fly Fishing...

    You asked about roads to Puerto Lobos. Unless there's been unusual weather, a Subaru should make it just fine. But I'd suggesting not trying to do Lobos if you're only down for a weekend. It's 2 hours each way. Closer to Rocky Point - like a half hour drive - is La Pinta estuary which...

    Going to Puerto Penasco Weekend Before Christmas to Fish... Advice on Travel? Fly Fishing...

    Fly rods and yellowtail? Hmmm... shows how little I know about saltwater flyfishing. I guess if you can handle a roosterfish on that rig you can probably do a yellowtail too, But a yellowtail of 20 lbs or more is a real handful.. Best bet is to pay someone to take you several miles out...

    What is this fish called? Caught it fishing from shore.

    NOT spotted bay bass. We catch tons of spotted bay bass around Lobos and they look just like the Mexfish picture. Do not have the redness this one has nor the same fins.

    New poster..Sea Shells of the Northern sea of Cortes.

    Edge-to-edge sharpness in a close-up photograph that wide is a challenge. I'll have to see it in person next time we're down. We enjoyed visiting the sea shell museum last May and chatting with Naomi.

    I'd been missing her since she left. Her departure from the forum left a void.

    Shrimp Prices

    Yes, I've had them clean my shrimp at Federico's and similar places along the malecon. I understand that Federico's was once owned and operated by a guy named Federico, but he sold out and retired. Those fish bays are run by whoever owns them at the moment. Freshness isn't necessarily...

    TRUMP Threatens to close US Mexico Border

    MexicoRuss, In my earlier post, I wasn't talking about your post. Evidently you posted an instant before I did. I was referring to an exchange above yours that went like this: Tico-T: Food stamps? Section 8 housing? Free Obama cellphones? You are a mental case. Really you are a nut job...

    Mayan Palace

    Ouch! I was thinking he needed a trip to the woodshed for persistence in political agitation, but a permanent ban leaves a big hole on the team roster. As we've just seen on the road question.

    Mayan Palace

    It appears Asprinkles couldn't get an answer because most people don't know where Puerto Lobos is or how to get there from Rocky Point, and Jerry has suddenly gone MIA. The old way was through Caborca and then 28 miles of dirt road to Lobos. But around 2010 (?) the highway past the Mayan...

    Mayan Palace

    Just curious - why couldn't Asprinkles get a response when he asked about water over the road to Puerto Lobos (goes past Mayan Palace) on the General forum? When someone asks about lunch at Mayan Palace, everyone suddenly wants to share what they know about the road flooding.

    Shrimp Prices

    Prices are higher if you want them shelled and de-veined. Last time I bought them that way and didn't think they were quite as good as the ones I clean myself.

    Okay, I just Google Earthed the road on my map. That road is definitely not a good idea.

    Hurricane a comin .

    Roberto, it's a Mexican map with no date of publication but obviously before 2010 as it doesn't show the highway going all the way to Libertad. I'd like to have an updated version.

    Hurricane a comin .

    Here's what I was talking about. Head out of Sonoyta like you normally do and take the road that leads past Villegran. But only after someone who knows this road confirms that it goes thru as shown and is in decent shape.

    Hurricane a comin .

    Watch the weather. Too early to tell. But I'll add that Thursday we took the highway toward Mayan Palace and were among the first they let through. Rio Sonoyta was running deep across the road in several place and a railroad bridge had collapsed. Sunday we returned from Puerto Lobos...

    Politics

    I come to the forum for news and information about Rocky Point and northwest Sonora. Many people here are knowledgeable on those subjects. But I don't want their social or political "wisdom" any more than I want it from people made famous for their singing, acting or sports ability.
