I wish I could report to you that this is a fish that I caught. Alas no, this was Dan's (pictured) haul. Isn't that amazing. It's a mutton snapper and I estimate it was around 25lbs. What a beauty. Well done Dan!
I am happy to report though that I had an incredibly enjoyable, and successful day. I caught 35 fish! 35!!! And lucky I did because including myself I had 4 people scheduled to call for dinner that night. Imagine the embarrassment if I hadn't been able to serve fish that I had caught myself after inviting and promising a seafood supper!!
It was a most enjoyable evening of succulent fresh fish, with key lime pie for dessert, washed down with a lovely bottle of sparkling Spanish cava.
And a beautiful sunset of pink and blue hues to finish it all off perfectly. Life is good.
