We were surprised to see a large amount of birds circling us, most were a Shearwater of some kind and a lone Red Footed Booby and a White Tailed Tropic bird. After pleasent days sailing that had us moving along at a good pace we were about to reel in the fishing lines when we noticed a “fish on” which happened to be one of the larger Mahi Mahi’s we have ever caught. Upon later inspection something had also taken a bite out of our cedar plug leaving some gnarly teeth marks, Hillary got right to filleting the Mahi and I got dinner going, with a change of plans to have some very fresh Mahi for tucker now. A batch of lime rice and butter and garlic sauce to cook the freshly cut fillets was the perfect end to a great second day, we have Mahi now for at least 3-4 more dinners… Yum! Anyone have any great Mahi recipes out there they want to share? Cheers, Ty & Hillary
