The big hand
17 November 2011 | The Gulfstream
Cyndi caught another mahi. This time we tried a trick I heard from Mic on Escargot last winter in Georgetown. Wrap the fish snugly in heavy canvas or cloth. Then I sat on her for a few minutes. She “calmed right down” and 10 minutes later Cyndi was expertly carving off filets. No bloody mess.
The wind effectively died. However we made 9-10 knots with both engines and Gulfstream current. Arrived in Ft. Lauderdale at sunset. A fine cruise. Thanks very much, John and Cyndi.
