"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Mahi Mahi

>> Monday, February 21, 2011

Our first fish of the trip did not disappoint. C watch had the deck, and Sam, noticing the line a-tugging, sang out "Fish on!" and all was suddenly awash in excitement and motion. The gaff was fetched, buckets of water collected, and fillet knives brought out on deck. All eyes strained aft, looking to see what was at the end of the line. Sam pulled, hand over hand, and with a flash of green-blue yelps of delight swam in the air. The brilliant colors of the mahi-mahi (or dolphin fish, dorado) are unlike anything else swimming in the ocean, and few fish taste as good.

Lizzie prepared the fish for supper less than three hours after it was caught. Needless to say, it was fantastic. Nice catch, Sam!
