Panama Fish on!

April 21, 2011

Panama Update: The first fish of this great WCFC Panama adventure has been caught! This morning we threw out a line on each side of the boat. My Boy Blue on startboard…

and a cedar plug on Port, according to Chris it’s one of the most productive jigs for Tuna even though it looks like nothing…

So bets are on, which one pulled out the first fish? I’ll provide that answer later…for now we’re on our way around Cuba and had lots of passer-bys today. Starting with an array of cruise ships…

Supposedly they hold up to 5000 people, I really can’t imagine…

…can’t say she’s the prettiest ship I’ve ever seen.

We’ve been in sight of Cuba for most of the day…

…we’re 19-20 miles offshore and we can just make out the mountains to the south. Of course my first introduction to Cuba was the movie Scarface and a classic Tony Montana line: “I didn’t get off no Banana Boat”…it took me all these years to see an actual Dole Banana boat…

…thats a lot of fruit! Theres a surprising amount of traffic out here…

…thats why the bridge has to keep a vigilant watch to make sure our paths don’t conflict with any of the above.

Ok back to fishing! It was yours truly that walked out on the back deck to see something flopping around 100 yards back our first catch…a monstrous Dorado…

…well its a start. The winning plug…MY BOY BLUE! We took it directly up to Chef Michael who made fast work of this pretty little thing…

One side…

…then the other…

which ended up as a very nice dish for this evenings dinner…

Delicious! And as a special message for one of our followers, Senior “White Horse”…our Chef keeps us and our palates well amused, tonight it was Olive Oil poached Dorado with coconut milk and avocado, followed by gumbo made with organic milk-fed chicken & sausage….

and mustard greens…

Take that, Caballo Blanco!

Lastly today Pierre and Chris watched a dvd on splicing and rigging heavy salt water rigs…

…anticipation is growing for what lies ahead.

Somewhere off of Cuba…
