Hello sports fans & thank you for being patient! I finally have WIFI at a friends house...more on that later.
Since I left you last...it has been absolutely EPIC sailing conditions...ON this passage I only motored for 2 hrs the rest was epic sailing in ocean conditions of groovy big rolling waves, sea birds, dolphins, and yes…TUNA! I guess what I read in the guide was true, fishing is always good outside of Magdalena bay…and let me tell you…one after another! BZZZZZZ…reel in, BZZZZZZ another one?!?? Serious?…BZZZZZ another one….world record fishing let me tell you! Caught 3 Bonito, all returned to the depths to keep feeding, one Mahi Mahi, which I lost right at the boat…and then this Tuna you see in the pic…what a fighter! Had that bitch filleted & bagged up and in my freezer in 20 min!…(keep in mind I’m in sea conditions that you cannot set down anything without losing it!…and learnt that an old towel (wet with sea water) layer out on top of my propane locker made for a perfect fillet table!!
It was also a world record sailing day as I logged 141 nm (remember people…nm = nautical miles!) in 24 hours! Amazing! MUCH to celebrate (sans lack of sleep due to conditions). And then, the next day….buzz kill man…the high is over…reality bites. you must read on to next installment, dont want to ruin the surprise!!
Ciao for now!
