Some success…

Yesterday shortly after noon I set out a fishing line for the first time on this trip. We had seen some evidence of fish and a little bit of bird activity, so what the heck! While in the middle of prepping dinner…

Dinner: London broil, baked potato, sautéed zucchini. We aren’t exactly roughing it!

…the rod announces the fish bit with a loud zing of line peeling off. Wake Karen from her well deserved nap, get the boat stopped, and in a few minutes we had a beautiful skipjack tuna in the cockpit. Not huge (maybe 6 pounds) but reports are they are very good eating. He’s on the menu tonight.

The second success was our forward progress. Noon yesterday, to noon today we made 166 miles by gps. Awesome. That’s a tough one to beat!

    Hi Karen,
    Great blog!
    I learned while fishing in Hawaii, to let your catch rest for 24 hours after catching. Clean and filet right away, but don’t eat for 1 or 2 days.
    Enjoy this journey. It’s amazing!

    Never had a bite across the Atlantic…..others did, but not us!
    Good catch – enjoy the fishing! That beef can’t last forever!

    Well done! I sailed 10,000 lure miles (2 lures Hawaii and back) without a bite. Changed lure color and configuration every few days as well. Gotta be a anti-record of some sort. Anyway, I’m happy for you. Keep an eye on those late season hurricanes.
