Nothing like eating the fish you caught hours ago for lunch – I took some fillets and fried them up with coconut oil they were so tasty.
Went fishing with Capt Jeff on Clifford and Eric’s boat this morning. Getting bait was not an easy task because the water is murky but we managed to find some sardines by the mangroves and set off for some inshore trawling.
Today Capt Jeff was coaching me on timing and how to reel fast after hooking the fish with a sharp upward motion.
Capt Jeff quote of the day on making major decisions … Ask yourself is th juice worth the squeeze?
On a side note the other fishermen caught wahoo tuna and a big barracuda – Bill took Maya, Gail and Paul outside the reef with Dilzon. Sounded like an awesome time but with 7 foot waves I am so glad I went with Capt Jeff in the morning that was definitely more my speed.
Note to self… get more waterproof gear and make sure it is calmer waters when going outside the reef.
