Deep Sea Fishing

Deep Sea Fishing

We went to bed very early last night since we had to get up at 4am, head over to get Marcus, Tiffany and Malakai, and drive to the marina on the northshore and be there by 6am. Malakai’s deodorant spray was very strong…that and sitting in the back made me feel queezy and it didn’t go away. When our boat was about 5 miles out, the water was so rough, that I lost my breakfast (before I knew what hit me). I was the only one to get sick (and I never get seasick!).

We didn’t catch much bait fish on our way to the fishing spot. Only two. The captain wasn’t too pleased, but nothing could be done about it.

Malakai caught the first first using live bait. It was a nice sized mahi mahi (dolphin fish). It was the biggest fish he ever caught). Marcus used the last bait fish and caught a 25 lb. yellowfin tuna, which was quite big for this time of year (they are bigger during the summer). With no more live bait, we had to fake it. Daddy was able to catch a smaller yellowfin, which was a nice size for him (he didn’t need any help pulling it in).

After four hours, nothing else was caught, so we went back to the dock. By the time we got back, it was raining heavily and I could barely see out of my glasses.

On our way back to Marcus’, we stopped at the famous food trucks on the Northshore. I went to a Cajun one and had red beans and rice with sausage….yum!

When we got back to the apartment, we took a nap for a couple of hours. Dinner was mahi mahi fish tacos that I made using the fish that was caught today.
