Fishermen and boaters on Falcon Lake near Zapata, Texas, need to beware the international border buoys, for should they stray out of U.S. territory, they may be robbed â€¦ by Mexican pirates.
According to a report by KENS-TV in San Antonio, authorities have confirmed three boats have been looted so far, some by a deadly Mexican drug cartel whose buccaneers brandish machine guns instead of swords and cannons.
The incidents have left many Texans sticking close to the U.S. shore.
"It is unsafe in Mexico. Don't go to Mexico," warned Game Warden Capt. Fernando Cervantes. "We cannot cross over onto that side. If a boat goes across, that's it. We stop there at the line."
"We're not planning on going to that side," fisherman Lucas Garza told the station. "We just know there's no good news on that side."

KENS reports the pirates steal cash and electronics, while authorities warn that without a Mexican law presence on the other side of the lake, boaters who do venture beyond the border buoys "are on their own."
