The Great Blue Ocean

From Georgetown we sailed to Long Island to Conception to Rum and now San Salvador.

The weather needs to be settled to venture to these Out Islands so with a few weeks of calm seas and light winds we busted a move with 20,000 ft of ocean under our keel.

One would think that we could catch some dinner. After all, this area is a fishing mecca.  Ava loves to fish and she is adamant about putting the line out as soon as possible. I feel bad about how unlucky we have been. That girl needs a fish! The crew of Whisper once again went home empty handed. However, we got a slip at the marina and we did meet some nice folks that were  real fisherman. Hungry for it.

And due to their proficient fishing expertise, we were the beneficiaries of fresh Wahoo. Dave and Ava and I ate a pound each of Wahoo that night! Staying another night, got us a few more pounds of Mahi-mahi. So our fishing days are looking better.

One of our neighbors is Fred, the host of the Outdoor Channel’s “Monster Fish”. After I explained all of our poor luck, he gifted Ava the prettiest of all lures guaranteed to catch us a Wahoo or a Mahi and gave her an “Ocean Fishing 101″ class.
