When Rainelda postponed for the meeting this Tuesday my visiting son and friend decided they wanted to go fishing. Thanks to Capital Bob Schmucker, the new president of the BCP and first mate Frank we had the opportunity. Since Mayra’s daughter Karina just celebrated her birthday we decided what better birthday present for an inspector of boats than to get out on one for pleasure and drag in some fish.
the day was slightly overcast as we left Boca Chica and the water pretty calm. We trolled and soon saw some humpback calves cavorting and were joined by escort of porpoises.
Then the fun began, I think the porpoises drove the fish to us.
Marina hauling in the first of three big eye Tuna’s. Her first catch and her first Tuna.
Karina hauled a Dorado and we ended up with three more to join it.
We also caught several Bonita, all but one returned to the sea. In all a great day. Karina being like all the locals I know said, wácala to the tuna. I am not sure if the word wácala is Spanish or just misspelt but it means, yuk.
For the rest if us the Tuna meant, sashimi as soon as we could find the wasabi, ginger, soy and sharp knife.
