And ... we caught a few fish ... The first day we caught a big wahoo (our first for the season) and then a 43 lb yellow fin tuna (my favourite). The next day we caught two decent size mahi mahi (one was 35 lb and the other slightly smaller). We have been eating fish everyday and the freezer is full.
|Calm enough on the downwind leg for tricycle riding. Benjamin saw the tricycle lashed to the pushpit and insisted it be brought to the cockpit.|
|Not a lot of room to ride though.|
|And tuna !|
|Pretty high tech kit - we only use hand lines. I pull in the line hand over hand and one of the kids takes up the slack on the yoyo reel.|
|Of course, all this fish means a lot work to process to prepare and store it safely. The freezer is full. Each fish is about eight full meals for the family with generous portions that turn into leftovers.|
|Heading into Denerau the next day to hang out with the megayachts.|
