Finally, the post that EW truly deserves. He’s been taking a lot of ribbing about not catching any fish during our first year at sea. In Grenada, he went out twice with Ross on s/v One White Tree – both times with fishing experts – and caught fish.
That’s good. He was praised, but he still hadn’t caught fish aboard La Luna. That was my goal. We have plans for more long distance sailing and I have hope for fresh seafood along the way. So finally, as reported in the post via Sailmail, EW caught, landed, and successfully prepared a 27-inch long mahi-mahi, or dolphin fish during the sail from Trinidad to St. Thomas.
It was a beautiful fish. At EW’s request I packaged and froze it and we shared it with Jeff and Barb on our first visit with them. Delicious! Mr. Romance is a hunter-gatherer and he’s mine.
I bow to you, my Sweetie. You did good.
