1/27/10 Larry Smith and family
Old time client and former partner with my fathers boat "Pamela", Larry Smith fished with us today. He was excited to get out on the water again, interested in having a good time and secretly hoping to catch a spearfish (his wife's favorite fish to eat). Not even 10 minutes after putting the lines in, we made his wife very happy, catching a 30 pound short-nose spearfish. Spearfish can be hard to hook sometimes, especially when you really want one, but there mild white fillets are some of the best eating.
After that we had some luck around a buoy offshore, catching a 15 pound Mahi Mahi, and loosing a bigger one close to the boat. More luck with some small tuna and it was time to get back home. Great day for filling up the fridge with fresh fish. We later meet up with the rest of the family and had the day's catch prepared every way imaginable.
Larry, and son are fishing the Rock-n-Reel tournament with us in June. We got second place last year, hope we can do it again this year.
