    I always like to see fish photos from others, so I thought I would post a few from fishing trips in February to April of this year. All photos were taken on my 27' Cobia "Yellowtail Chaser" and fish were caught offshore from Rocky Point by me and my fishing friends. Sorry, no stories to go with them this time.

    Really, Roberto?

    The impact of a few hook and line sport fishers is NOTHING like the devastation of a panga fleet with gill nets. Get a grip, dude.

    Great pics, Shawn!

    Yes, an overreaction, sport fishing isn't the problem, but I understand where you're coming from Roberto. Major commercial fishing restrictions must be implemented asap or the vaquita situation will become an ongoing occurrence with many other species becoming extinct.
    "The Sea of Cortés faces numerous pressures. Decades of commercial overfishing are causing a total collapse of fish stocks. As late as 1993, the area, less than 5% of all Mexico’s territorial waters, produced about 75% of the nation’s total fish catch of 1.5 million metric tons; however, by some estimates, fish populations have declined by 90%since."

    Sounds like a good old-fashioned lynching behind Guau Guau. Don't forget to invite GV Jack with his purse full of bricks in case the scoundrel escapes. With his grip he might just climb the rope....

    I think technology combined with creative camera work can help a bit in this situation. Maybe more drone pics and video of the skillful fishermen reeling in a Sea of Cortez fighting fish than the derivate "blood covered fellow knuckleheads with a dead fish" shots... Still opening the Colorado delta to the sea by limiting southwest water use by banning lawns and cotton farming tied with sinking long liners might be the only solution...even that is pointlessas as global warming spells the end for Puerto Penasco in the next 50 years..........enjoy it while we can I guess...I Know I am!
