    I was coming in last night from San Luis and it sure looked like 3-4 boats off in the distance trawling in the ecological zone just a little bit South of El Golfo which would put them in the off limits zone.

    Estero.........

    We counted sixteen full sized trawlers in that area today at around two PM on our way back to Yuma. Stopped on the cliffs near Campo Las Brisas and checked them out with binoculars, all were in full bottom drag mode with outriggers out and trawls deployed lazily scrapping what might be left on the bottom out there.

    So much for the "protected zone".

    We did find a freshly dead adult Vaquita yesterday on the beach near the tip of Salinas Point.

    More on that manana!

    Yes, Salinas Point with Saint George Island out on the western horizon.

    We saw Vaquitas lazily hunting within a stones throw just offshore along that beach twice last spring.
