Denny's beach is the best for Tarpon

Patty/dark right now with a shower
Hello to all! We three boat amigos (Lorelei, Rune on his boat and Bob on Good Time Charlie) spent the last 2 days in the South Western end of Lago Izabal, searching for and exploring the rivers feeding into the lake. Some pretty amazing stuff, incredible sounds at dusk/daybreak (howler monkeys), and friendly Indians.
We motored back to Denny's Beach yesterday, and today Gary and Denny's son, Clayton, went out in our dinghy just beyond the dock and caught a 52 lb Tarpon!!! You've never seen a 13 year old (or a 60 year old) so excited! They brought it in and gave the fish to the family next door. It fed them (27 in all) and us! Tarpon is not known as a good eating fish in the States, but the way the Mayans cook it here, it is very good! We all got a scale for keepsake!
