Bob Alvarez stood on a deserted stretch of beach south of this small, agricultural town and spoke fondly of his exploits in the waters nearby. He pointed to San Martin Island, a dozen or so miles from the coast, yet easily visible on a vast and otherwise unobstructed horizon. Alvarez told of the 12 1/2-pound kelp bass his friend caught while fishing San Martin from a skiff.

The Coast Guard pilot who opted not to investigate a distress signal from the ill-fated Fish-n-Fool defended his actions Monday, saying his plane was too low on fuel to make a search. Lt. James Stinson told a Coast Guard Advisory Board hearing that he had no way of knowing that the alarm he picked up on Feb. 6 was coming from a vessel that capsized off the coast of Mexico, killing 10 of its 12 passengers.

It was the best of times at El Pescador. You might walk through the door and hear the Andrews sisters singing "It's a Grand Old Flag" at the piano bar. John Wayne used to come into the restaurant-bar with actor Ward Bond or director John Ford. You could get one the world's great clam chowders made by the former personal chef of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, or a scrumptious abalone dinner for $5.95. The seafood was always fresh. And the fish stories were great too.

The Labor Day weekend was anything but a holiday for area anglers, who were kept busy with some of the best fishing of the season. Bruce Root and his brother, Richard, launched their 17-foot skiff at Cabrillo Beach on Monday and started toward Catalina Island in search of marlin. A stop at a kelp paddy in mid-channel provided the San Pedro anglers with enough small mackerel to fill their bait tank. When they resumed their trip, they spotted four marlin feeding on the surface.

Bartolo and Maria Parra waited beside their son's small, unpainted coffin as the gravediggers jabbed at the sun-baked red earth of the cemetery. Three-year-old Donaciano had died of dysentery the day before, and now he was being buried in a forlorn little graveyard on a mesquite-covered mesa east of town. This was not the first child the Parras had lost. The last time they were in San Quintin, 200 miles south of Tijuana on the Baja Peninsula, another son, 2, also died of dysentery.
