The organizers are thrilled with the results of the Run to End Domestic Violence: 133 men, women and youth participated. They came from San Carlos, Guaymas and even Hermosillo. The day was gorgeous and the course was marked and protected by our San Carlos police. Fortunately, no one needed assistance but the Rescate ambulance was also there to help. Music and dancing got the energy up before the 10K runners took off, followed by the 5K runners and then those who walked or strolled. The winners received beautiful trophies and even the casual walkers were given a medal for being supportive of Seguro y Sano, the non profit organization whose mission is to create awareness and safety for victims of domestic violence. The money raised by this, and other events will go towards funding a comprehensive shelter in the Guaymas municipality. We thank all sponsors and participants. by Lynn Cannon

San Carlos Weather, News & Marketplace

News & Marketplace

  • Join us on Facebook for photos, event updates and more (more than 11,000 people already do).
  • Be prepared to wait a little longer in line to pay your CEA water bill. The regular staff is on strike — sources say they were not paid their full year-end bonus.
  • The Rescate Board of Directors has regretfully cancelled the 2020 President’s Cup Golf Tournament. A number of unforeseen factors combined to result in insufficient community interest to make the tournament viable. All paid participants and sponsors will be individually contacted to arrange for reimbursement. Rescate will also be contacting 24K gold card members to address any issues around their membership. Rescate apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks everyone involved for their interest and support of Rescate. Rescate looks forward to your continued support at other fundraisers such as the Saturday Marketplace, the upcoming Grand Bazaar (Saturday, February 8) and the Melodrama in March.
  • A Boating group (sailboats and power boats) meets every Tuesday at 10:00am at the San Carlos Yacht Club from November to May. You do not have to be a member of the Yacht Club and there are no dues. You just need to enjoy boating. This Tuesday, they will be starting a Kayaking group within the boating group. They talk about boating for about an hour and then go out for a day trip. For more information, please contact Ken Monlux at 209-495-1017.
  • The new ramp to the Hermosillo bypass road is now open going South. No more need for U-turns. The new ramp is before where the temporary ramp was and is well marked for “Guaymas”. It’s an exit from the left lane.
  • There is sports equipment, vehicles, boats, houses for sale and rent, and more, listed in the Classifieds. There are also people looking for items, so if you have any to sell, list them now — it’s free.

Fishing & Golfing Reports

Fishing Report

They were biting up the coast this week. It was the first time that I have ever fished White Rock. Pando is about eight miles past Punta San Pedro, and White Rock a few miles farther. Pando had a number of small yellowtail and a few of better size. One boat was calling in catches at White Rock and we headed up there. There were about ten pangas pulling in fish, and about five sport boats were trolling. We jigged up as many as any panga with a few fish going 15 – 18 pounds. We released a lot of 10 pound yellowtail. I think that was the most that I had ever caught.

The fish that day had empty stomachs, but a couple days later they were full of green mackerel. The fishing sounded slower Monday, but they should feed again for the new moon.

Out front a lot of the bait and fish have moved on. A few yellowtail were on the surface in deep water. They were biting Saturday, but it was the roughest water that I have been in. Friends jigged up ten in just two hours that day at Cuatro Chi Chis off San Antonio, so there are some fish in close. We didn’t find much at the Seamounts, but lost two lures to big fish (or the same fish?) right off Martini Cove. We caught a decent amount of bonita at times and picked up a couple yellowtail a morning trolling off San Antonio. The fish are out there if you are on the water!

Birding Report

Hola Birding Enthusiasts,

We had a large group of 31 birders last Thursday but thanks to David Jasper and Elaine Moisan, experts from Portal, Arizona, we were able to break up into groups and explore both Estero Soldado and the Miramar Estuary. The disadvantage of being in small groups is not everyone is able to see all the cool birds. Some of us saw a small flock of Semipalmated Plovers and Cinnamon Teals while others had a good view of the Great Kiskadee, Peregrine Falcon, and Common Yellowthroat. It was cloudy and windy so we broke for lunch a bit early and 21 of us ate at Mazateños in Miramar.

The Bird of the Week is the Yellow-Footed Gull. Al Sjogren captured this perky gull at the beach in Villa Hermosa but they are common on all our beaches. Which is not to say this is a common bird. While easy to see here, it is endemic to the Sea of Cortez. This means it is native and only found here. Well in this case almost only here. The only place in the United States where you might see the Yellow-footed Gull is in the Salton Sea in southeastern California. There during the summer hundreds will spend time but not breed and they head south in early fall. Almost all remain in the Sea of Cortez year round. So, this is a very special bird and a great thrill for many visiting birders.

The population of the Yellow-footed is smaller than any other North American gull species. They nest by making scrapes (indentations) in the ground just above the high tide mark. The female chooses which scrape she prefers and lines it with vegetation and feathers. This occurs during March and early April and eggs are laid within two to three days of the female choosing and lining her nest. Most of the nests are on islands in the Sea of Cortez, which is one of the reasons people are not allowed to go ashore. This definitely includes Isla de la Raza (Honeymoon Island) which is the home to breeding Brown Pelicans, Great Blue Herons and many gulls including the Yellow-footed.

It is easily identified (gull wise – because gulls are notoriously difficult). It is larger than most other gulls and its colors are very dramatic. The white looks freshly bleached, the yellow legs and feet  are like fresh egg yolks, the mantle (back) is a dark thundercloud gray and the bright yellow bill has a big red dot on the lower mandible. Take a closer look at the gulls when you are on the beach and I bet you can pick one out.

We will meet for our next outing this Thursday, January 23 at 8:00am at the Esterito Cafe at the bottom of the road leading west around Bahia San Carlos.

Please do not feel you have to be an expert to join our group. If you do not know anything except that you want to know more, our group will help you learn. If you are an experienced birder and just want to know other birders, then join us and share your experience. Please bring your water, sun and insect protection, and a chair. And your binoculars, of course. Outings usually last until around 11:30am or so and we then head to lunch. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
