The summer season has just begun and on the Eastern Pacific we have already seen the third named tropical storm, as this week Hurricane Cosme developed off the coast of Manzanillo, before heading on a westerly path, coming within 300 miles of Cabo San Lucas and quickly encountered cooler water causing it to dissipate, never did threaten land. We never did feel more than a few sprinkles of rain, though the ocean swells quickly rose up to fifteen feet high on Tuesday and Wednesday, before residing on Thursday and Friday. Local ports of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Los Cabos were closed to all boating activities, red flag conditions, by late Thursday morning the ports were reopened for operations.
This latest storm system brought in more tropical and humid weather, high temperatures were staying in the 80s, mild for this time of year, thick marine haze, almost fog, has been hanging over the Southern Peninsula and Pacific breezes are keep conditions comfortable. Anglers had encountered turned over inshore water conditions prior to this recent storm, which stirred things up even more and it could be a while before the water cleans and warms back up.
