Here fishy fishy

Sister #2 (Mary) and her husband (Gill) are down visiting sister#1 (Abbie) and her spouse (Bob) in Delray Beach for a couple of weeks. We opted to remain in Stuart , where the car and boat are currently parked, so we could see them while they are here. There haven't been any real weather Windows to facilitate moving anywhere. The weather has been very unsettled all winter. There are many worse places to be waiting for decent sailing weather.
The six of us have had a couple of lunches and days by the pool with good visits. Today Mary, Gill and we did a deep sea fishing excursion out of the Boynton Beach City Marina. We had always thought it might be great fun to do and Mary and Gill are avid sportspeople. Fish Envy charters did an amazing job, very professional and kept our many lines baited and in the water. It was a gorgeous day and it felt great to be out on the water. We definitely enjoyed the experience and would go again.
We did catch 5 fish 4 Bonita and a King Mackeral. Apparently Bonita are only good as bait fish. And none of us was particularly fond of Mackeral as they can be oily so we donated it to the crew.
My knowledge of fish is pretty limited. We don't fish on Light Reach. Mostly because Scott doesn't eat seafood and to have to go to the trouble of cleaning and filleting it just for me hardly seems worth the effort. Most sailors will throw a line out when they are underway during a passage. The fish they catch, tuna, Mahi, and such can be quite large. With limited freezer space it would be a crime to waste the poor creature, another reason we don't.fish. Add to that the space for the gear on the boat and you've got a case for being tackle free.
Any time spent with family is precious and today was perfect memory made.
