    Default Corn Island 1/15

    The weather has been beautiful & while out visiting on Sunday a fishing date was set for yesterday.

    Spent 4 hours or so out & we caught 15+ pounds of yellow tail, 3 kingfish & 3 barracuda all in the 20lb range, a few old wife (trigger fish), & I caught a 10 lb grouper, the bite was pretty slow & we were plagued by small yellowtail taking our bait but all in all it was a good day.

    Not the best fish pic, but I was beat by the time we got in & all I had on my mind was getting a cold beer.

    Default The rest of the story...



    10 Islanders, 3 gringos and one gringa - who was the only one who knew how to filet a grouper. (with a very dull knife, might I add!)

    I caught a ¨Doormat¨here one time.

    A Doormat is a garganuain flounder, and I guess he was lost, but he tasted good anyway....Stuffed with local crab meat stuffing and baked....Ahhhh, I do love it here....

    Default Grouper!



    Kevin cooking pasta a la norma with home grown eggplant



    The grouper was pan seared and served with a veracruzana sauce (tomato, onion, garlic, caper and olives)

    Pictured are guests Erin and Minden and, of course, Kevin.

    Erin is going to attempt to swim from Little Corn to Big Corn Island this week... weather permitting.

    I used to compete in 1 and 2 mile open ocean swims. This has to be a bit longer? Anyone going to follow him in a boat?

    A couple of sharks and some seagulls definitely. I would hate to get a cramp and no boat around. Then again, if that happened I guess you just float it off.

    I am sitting here thinking how long once he washes ashore around Tasbaponie and to walk up the beach to the North Region and what adventures Cookshow might find along the way.

    Hot Damn, sounds like VERY INTERESTING to say the least....
