Could Mexico please quit dumping all their RAW Sewage into the ocean near Imperial Beach Calif. They say they are so environmentally concerned about the ocean waters.
Nice, that comment will help get the island open. Let's remember who all reads these posts.

They stopped that over 30 years ago.

Ironically, the outflow wasn't actually at Sewer Peak. It was inside of First Peak. You could see it discoloring the water and it smelled bad. We called it Brown's Bar.

Fuckin' nasty . . . but that didn't stop us :beerbang:

Leaving on a 6 day next week that usually goes to Lupe. The online booking account just showed $ refunded that equals the cost of visiting Lupe so it appears Lupe is not happening this trip. Still awaiting for the trip details to arrive via email. Ensenada Harbor is still shut down by the MEx government due to Covid so one can not check in and out for Lupe.

Now the ? for me is do they bomb down to the ridge or stay in the BFT/YFT zones from SD to Geronimo Island areas.

For those not familiar, a trip will have a basic cost and then there are a couple of "extra" fees" and this is where the refunded $ came from. The vessel has the Lupe permits for this year. But for each trip, each person must pay more for their individual Lupe fishing permit just like the daily fee one pays to fish at the Coronados. This is the "extra" that was refunded to my account.

FYI on the LUPE front
Let us know how the trip goes!!! And good luck!!

Name a wave and it's over. Connected sewer peak into the top of pleasure point on a not solid wave, low tide aid staying 3 houses away from the O'Neil house. I paddle out solo so nobody knows who I am. Works out better then being part of the Santa Cruz sides. I won't even say a word. Who is this guy. SC hates more on people from Santa Cruz rather then outsiders

I did like the short punchy left

Just got back from my yearly 6 day Vagabond trip that usually goes to Lupe to start August. No go this year as we could not check in at Ensenada port as it was still closed.

So we headed to the area west of San Clemente Island and got into the BFT - Most all got 2 jumbos on the kite along with some smaller grade ones on bait & snipers. Tossed in some nice YT from Cortez banks - bait, yoyo, and surface iron was working.

Penn sponsored trip so a big thank you to Penn and Steve Carson as I won a Fathom 15 2 speed reel for the largest YT at 27.7 pounds.

Rough for the first 2 days ( July 29 - 31 ) then started to lay down to almost glass by Aug 3. A sad note is that an AMPHIB navy craft went down in our area during the bad weather and we lost some of our warriors.

That bowl was punchy indeed. Are you a goofy foot? Took me a while to break into the Sewer Peak crew. Lot of Nazi thugs there.
Moved there in 1973. Lived on 37th Ave, a block from the cliff. It was heaven back then.
East sider for sure. Only surfed the Lane and Stockton Ave on the west side. David and Richard Schmitt were friends of mine so I got a pass.

The guy asks a simple question about Guadalupe being open for fishing this year and you get a bunch of posts about raw sewage in Tijuana and surfing in Santa Cruz. WTF?
It’s BD. What did you expect, for it to stay on topic start to finish?

At least it hasn’t gotten political.......yet

Yea, I keep clicking on this every time there is a new post thinking someone has new info about the Guadalupe permits and checking in at Ensenada. A lot of people have trips coming up soon and it would be nice to know if we are going to be able to fish Guadalupe or not.

I’ve heard from unconfirmed sources that the island is closed to the entire fleet for the entire season. Also saw it on a Facebook post.
I’m surprised no one has brought this up. Actually I’m not surprised.

Giving the island a break for a year will probably be beneficial. It seems like every year the fish have been getting pickier.

I sure hope it opens up, having that option on my 10 day at the end of November is huge,. It literally saved our trip last year on the AA because the water at the rocks and ridge had turned over and it was dead

I would say the odds are slim to none on that happening. I have heard that the proclamation from Mexico was very clear. Lupe 2020 aint going to happen.
And no one is going to talk about it.
Last night sitting on the couch it suddenly sank in how fucked up things are due to Covid. My business, my poor parents in senior care, my sons wedding ceremony in Europe getting canceled, etc.
And I've tried to remain optimistic about Long ranging and let's face it, my wife is super nervous about me getting on any boats until a vaccine is available. My desire to fish has been causing stress. I'm fucking over it.
Tommy, Susan. Alec, Team Supreme are just trying to keep trips going. I love these guys and only want the best for them. They run a great operation.
Once guys get real about Lupe closure, I'm sure it's only going to get worse,
Sorry about being so upbeat in this post.
