Fishing, Golfing, Birding & Biking Reports

Fishing Report

The fishing turned on over the weekend for some good afternoon bites at the Island. The big fish were caught trolling near the surface. Monday was slower there.

A few smaller yellowtail have been caught off San Antonio in deeper water, but on the surface. The Seamounts still didn’t produce for us. We saw a lot of scattered birds diving on our way to the Island. Sometimes the fish are offshore this time of year. The water has cleared up and warmed up. We read up to 67.3. Maybe the marlin and tuna could show within a month. Up the coast the water is cold and dirty.

I think we’ll start to see more bait and overall activity in the next two weeks. The fish sometimes swim through in waves. It seems that good bites only last a day or two usually, so get out there and make the reports rather than wait for them!

Birding Report

The San Carlos Birding Group took advantage of lower tides in the morning to go out to Estero del Soldado this past Thursday. We had 29 birders and visited three different locations. The highlight, of course, was the Roseate Spoonbills which we saw wherever we went. We also saw a large flock of White Pelicans and a huge (500) flock of Laughing Gulls resting on their migration. Since the Sibley guide says they summer in the Sea of Cortez, I am not sure where they are heading to but they were definitely resting. Another highlight was at the Esterito Cafe where everyone was able to see the Green and Belted Kingfishers fighting it out for territory. There was no clear winner and both went their separate ways a little apart. The Green Kingfisher is an unusual bird for this far north. If you have not seen it, you might want to head to the Esterito Cafe or the road heading north from the fish camp that overlooks that area.

The Bird of the Week is the Roseate Spoonbill. To me the Roseate Spoonbill is the symbol of the Estero del Soldado. There are many birds that winter in our estuaries but you will not find one more beautiful or strange than the Roseate. Not only is it a brilliant pink but its bill is shaped like a spatula. A perfect bird for St. Valentine’s week. You would think people would know it instantly but I am surprised at the number of times people tell me they saw a Flamingo out at the estuary. They did not. Range maps do not show Spoonbills this far north on the Sea of Cortez but we see them every year and they are especially plentiful right now. These lovely birds were almost wiped out in the United States. The quest for feathers for hats in the early 1800’s led to wide scale slaughter. Their wings were also sold for fans. They have recuperated but are not plentiful in the US.

There are six species of Spoonbill found worldwide but the Roseate Spoonbill is the only one in the New World and the only one that is not predominantly white. It is a very interesting bird to observe foraging because it feeds by “tactolocation.” describes it this way, “While walking, it swings its head and the slightly open “spoon” of its bill in the water from side to side in a semicircular motion. The bill snaps shut when it contacts prey, mainly fish and aquatic invertebrates.” It would really be a shame to be in San Carlos and not take advantage of the opportunity to see this special creature.

Our lovely photo was captured this past Thursday by one of our birders, Paul Gregory.

We will meet, as usual, at the Esterito Cafe at 8:00am on Thursday, February 15. Bring your sun protection, binoculars and a folding chair. If you have any questions, you may email me at

Golfing Report

Ladies Club. February 6: The game was O.N.E.S. where the only scores that counted were those who started with those letters. Trigger Davies won by only 1/2 shot over Vickie Teskey in the “A” Flight and Suzanne Hale won by a couple over Pam Bertrand in the “B” Flight. Vickie Teskey, Suzanne Hale and Pam Bertrand tied for best round of the day shooting net 67’s.

Men’s Club. February 8: This was a team game, One Low Gross & One Low net and once again the scoring was super close. Tom Teskey, Brent Holbrook, Dennis Sogn & Real Gamache shot 127 to win by only a stroke over Doug Davies, Dave Lewis & Murray Cox. Another stroke behind in 3rd place was Skip Wood, Reg Jewett, Jack Renard and Bob Lanctot. Doug Davies took low net honors shooting a season’s best Net 61 and Real Gamache continues his exceptional play shooting a 72 to win low Gross.

Valentine’s Tournament. February 12: With many people out of town for the weekend there were still 61 players who came out to enjoy this season’s 4th mixed event. Lucky again, the weather was perfect and the play was close with only a few strokes separating all of the teams. In the end Sue & Tim Fath, Donnie McIntosh & Dennis Sogn won the “A” Flight with a net 58 winning by only a single stroke over two other teams. Don & Glen Stenerson and Patricia & Steven Bradley topped the “B” flight and Suzanne & Jerry Hale and Pam & Mark Bertrand won the “C” flight. Many thanks go out to Mary Spalding for running this 1st class event with the able assistance of Pam McAdie and Cathy Cleveland.

International Cup. This week the men will be competing in the Annual International Cup. The team captains will tell us all, on Wednesday at 3:00pm at the golf course, who they have matched up in the draws for the two rounds.

In other news, a bunch of the locals went to Obregon for a Charity Tournament this last weekend. And, it seems that the participants could buy a mulligan for only 100 pesos, good deal, right? Especially if you hit your 1st shot of the day into the lake on the 14th hole and then . . . jar it for a hole-in-one, like Joe deMik just did! The prize for his shot was 20,000 pesos but another fortunate player duplicated Joe’s feat after him, so he had to split the prize. Still 10,000 pesos is a pretty good payout, don’t you think!

Upcoming Events:
– February 13 – Ladies Day
– February 15 & 16 – The International Cup – that fierce annual rivalry between the Canadians & Mexicans vs the Americans
– February 20 – Ladies Day
– February 22 – Men’s Club – An Individual Game – Modified Stableford
– February 27 – Men’s Travelling Road show – to Hermosillo this time. The bus is all but full with only 1 seat left at this time.

Just a reminder for the men & ladies to please sign up for the weekly play online if you can. It makes things so much easier to organize. Go to (now the central link for both the Mens AND Ladies Golf Clubs) and follow the Sign Up Page to get registered. If you aren’t able to get online, call Jim @ 226-1637 for the men or Mary @ 226-0156 for the Ladies and we’ll get you fixed up.

If you have any golf related news, events, happenings, exceptional scores or the like that you would like out in the community, let us know and we will do what we can to make it happen.

Mountain Biking Group Report

A San Carlos mountain biking group meets every Monday and Friday at 9:00am at the OXXO near Casa de Talavera and Tortuga’s Restaurant. If you’re a strong rider with the right gear, please join us.

Prior articles discussed tires. My bicycle is a Specialized 27.5+ and the tires are 650b x 3.0 Tubeless Ready. This is not yet a common size. My rear tire was worn. Both tires were seeping sealant through the sidewalls. It was time to replace one or both. The bicycle came with “standard” tires, but there was version available from Specialized that has thicker and tougher sidewalls. I had brought one spare from Seattle, but I wanted the other version if I could get it.

We have 2 Specialized dealers in Guaymas: Mosiah Bike Shop and Specialized Guaymas. There are two other bicycle shops in Guaymas, Richards Bikes on Garcia Lopez and Calle 14 and La Casa Del Motociclista on Calle 15 and Avenida 10. No one had this tire in stock.

I was able to special order 2 of the tires that I wanted and pick them up in Guaymas. How long does that take here and how much does it cost? Well it took 3 weeks, but part of that was during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. List price in the USA is $60 USD. I paid 1250 pesos. I spent slightly more than I would have in Seattle. The cost in Guaymas was US $60 USD at 18 Pesos per dollar plus the 16% IVA. In Seattle my cost would have added about 9.8% Sales Tax to 60 Dollars. The difference was only the difference in tax.

Changing tubeless tires can be a task. The tire’s bead and the wheel rim, by necessity, need to fit together tightly. Some leave this task to a bicycle shop. If you choose to do this yourself I have some good experience with a relatively new product which makes one part of this easy. The improved portion is getting the tire bead to seat against the wheel rim.

Seldom have I been able to seat the bead to the rim with a manual pump. It usually took a trip to the tire inflator at a gas station. The product is AirShot 1.15 Tubeless Inflator. It is a small cylinder with a presta valve used to fill with a manual pump and a hose with a valve that screws into the presta valve on the wheel with the valve insert removed. 20 pumps with my manual floor air pump and AirShot was at 100 psi. Remove the valve insert from the wheel, screw in the hose, open the valve and it was done. Both tires seated on the first try. The remaining tasks were to add 3 ounces of sealant, screw in the valve insert, inflate and reinstall the wheel on the bike. I was very happy with AirShot.

There are other solutions to the task of putting a blast of air quickly into the tubeless tire to seat the bead to the wheel rim, but not so much as to rupture or damage the tire in the process. There are now some manual floor air pumps sold with a reserve tank. I have not used one of these, so I cannot compare.
