notes from the boat
As we sailed from Cabo San Lucas to La Paz we noticed a number of large,
sporty-looking fishing boats. After his success with the blue fin tuna on
the outside of the Baja, Carl decided he'd have a go and whipped out his
fishing rod quicker than anyone could say "I don't want fish for dinner."
After about five minutes the line started paying out and it looked like the
lucky lure had struck again.
Carl reeled in the line, the rod bent in a huge arch, Winston was poised on
the edge of the boat, Gemma was ready with the camera, all great
excitement. Suddenly an enormous dorado (Mahi Mahi), blue, green and yellow
surfaced. It was at least five feet and surely over a hundred pounds. The
battle was brief as the great fish surfaced, dove, surfaced again and
then... snapped the rod! Taking the not-so-lucky lure with it, that
certainly was the one that got away!
