In St James, you can buy a house like this one above on the golf course for around $500,000 or like the one below on a nice lake for around $400,000. Taxes between $2,000 and $2,500 per year. Sell your house up north for $800,000 and put the balance in your savings to help you enjoy life in St James. You can mimic the actions of Mary and I and buy a house on the marina and go fishing. The weather down here is amazing. We do not get hardly a trace of snow, sell all of your snow shovels and big coats behind and stock up on beach chairs, towels, and a good umbrella! There are many year-round activities in the area. Recently a flotilla just happened less than 30 minutes away. Christmas parades are almost weekly because each town has their own. Little markets pop up here and there and the locals sell their goods. Buying a home in St.James is one of the best investments, we have ever made!
Just got back from a fishing trip to Cabo San Lucas and it was super We managed to catch fourteen of these striped marlin. All of them were released unharmed. Cabo is a beautiful place and a great place to fish. What a week?
That’s Joe and I coming back home with our recent catch. We have caught several hundred of these kings. They are fun to catch.

If you like shrimp, it is easy to get fresh shrimp right off the boat. There are numerous shrimp boats based very close by and they pass St James both coming and going. Shrimp and grits is a favorite local dish and a favorite of mine. $5.50 a pound for the large size, at the local fish market, or right off the boat.
Getting ready for this years US OPEN king mackerel Tournament. Last year we weighed in a 51 Inch fish which was plenty long, but had been on a diet and was way too skinney. Hope to do better this year. The two in these photos are close, but not quite heavy enough.
