Makai is a fishing machine

We fish everytime we leave the dock, though we pull lines in at night as we feel it is a safety issue.

We have caught Blackfin, mahaimahai, spanish mackrel, rainbow runners, and on. We got instruction from a fisherman who owns a shop in Cape Fear. He gave us the dime tour and saved us a bunch of money on things we didn't need.

We use 3 different colored cedar plugs, two on rods and one on a cuban reel. We drag them about 50-65 feet behind the boat on the surface in the wake. We catch a ton. Almost everytime we toss the lines out dinner is on the hook.

Some we throw back and some we keep to eat. It is been a lot of fun and Sharon has become quite the fisher person. The fresh fish adds a bit of variety and reduces our expenses.

Tuna sashimi, blackened tuna, mahai steaks....YUM

Nothing better at sea than some fresh dolphin right off the line. No need to ruin it by putting nasty seasonings on it. Just grill it and eat.

There has been some good articals on fishing under sail recently in CW. They were using squid rigs and having great success trolling a couple of boat lenghts back. Any floating debree will hold some good fish most of the time. Nothing beats a little fresh sashimi!

Sashimi is ok, but I often find it’s undercooked.

I had Sashimi once. After I cooked it it sort of tasted like fish.

Trolling

Most of this thread seems to refer to sub-tropical waters - Has anyone had experience of trolling in the eastern Mediterranean and if so, how much success have they had?
