Sharon...the GREAT fisherwoman!

As we sailed across the Sea of was so beautiful and such a delightful sail...we decided to put some fishing lines out and see if we could catch something. We were dragging a static meat line with a lure and we also have Sharon's fancy rod and reel with a similar lure. They basically catch the same amount of fish...the meat line cost about $5.00...the rod and reel cost about $600...go figure!

We caught five Dorado on Thursday...the second best tasting fish in the Pacific Ocean. The BEST tasting fish is a Yellow Fin Tuna...we're still waiting to catch one of those...maybe we need to be in warmer waters.

Of the five...three are in our freezer. The fourth actually flopped off the deck after I caught it and took the hook out of its mouth. I told Sharon to put her foot on it to keep it on the deck, but when it started flopping it scared her and off it went...back into the sea. The fifth Dorado was the catch of the day...about 4 ft. long.

After I pulled it to the boat hand over hand on the meat line...I was tired and the fish was tired, but not tired enough to stop fighting. I actually had it gaffed, but it was flopping and fighting so much even after I gaffed flopped off the gaff and saved itself. One lucky fish indeed!

About: We discovered sailing early in our marriage and have loved being on the water ever since. We started sailing on San Francisco Bay on a Catalina 27 and then upgraded to a Catalina 36. We then realized that we wanted to eventually go cruising and bought the boat that we have now...a Passport 47.
Sharon and I have cruised up and down the California coast many times and sailed in the 2000 Baja Ha Ha. The four Amigos took Warren Peace down the coast on the 2002 Baja Ha Ha. The boat's home base has been San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico for the past several years. Moving Warren Peace to the [...]
