Something is inherently wrong with a homemade lure attached to a Penn International. Kind of like using your Rolls to pick up cans along the highway for the nickel deposit.

Our large collection of expensive skirted lures and rapallas had been trashed and the nearest tackle shop was 400 nm away.

This was mid way between Australia and Vanuatu

For bottom fishing we just use a lead weight with a hook on it. We learned to scrape the weight to give it some shiny spots.

sorry but that shows how powerful the western (even more so usa) propaganda machine is. On a boat anything which works time and again is good.

I use ECO spoons as a rule but have been known to make spoons from tableware. Split rings and a drill after handle is cut off and your in business. Before I decided on sewing making offshore lures was on my list of possible ways to support myself on the boat. I'm amazed they get $50 or more for a plastic head trailing some mylar.

oh man, we run into this all the time here. "mahi-mahi" is a term used by Hawaiians and waiters who don't know. Are you a Hawaiian/polynesian?

the fish is a rainbow dolphin. Or a Dorado. Its a cold blooded fish. Its not Flipper.

Mahi-mahi sounds to me like something you would import to Walla Walla, or Bora Bora, or Pango Pango, or to Overstrike, BF.

If you call a Rainbow Dolphin a mahi-mahi.....you also spell Brasil with an 's'....right?

Brazil in Spanish, Brasil in Portuguese. Dolphin, Dorado, Mahi-Mahi...they all taste the same to me! We would head out of Sister's Creek in Marathon early every morn and troll for hours out in the 'stream. Look for weeds and floating stuff like plywood...they love to hang under cover. If you catch one, be aware that they often hang in pairs and the mate will be just as tasty, so go back and hit that spot again. We would BBQ on the way back in, sometimes making little foil packets with fish, onion, olives, some crushed tomato and garlic. Oh God I have to get this boat done soon...

ok so its a fish not a mammal. Thats good but go easy on poor fish even though they may seem to be plentiful. As tuna stocks crash, other species will be next for over fishing and eradication.

If you have to eat it, make sure you respect it and dont waste any.

Anjou,

Here's a short video of one of the dolphins we caught from Layla in 2009 - Great fun to catch!



We loved, respected, blackened, baked and grilled it - Indeed, none of it was wasted...

Also - While I agree with you regarding your concern about the mishandling of the Worlds resources, this group is hardly the responsible party... IMO, one needs to have a look at the commercial fleets and their methods.

Respectfully,

Sailndive

Another thing about the dol.........err........Mah...........er........... ..Dorado, Anju, is that they are very fast growing and do not live long compared to other fish.

Thus they do not build up large amounts of heavy metals, nor do they harbor nasty parasites.

Neat huh?
