A great attraction for many visitors to Tenerife is Sea-fishing. Off the coast of Tenerife swim a great variety of Game fish and other edible species. A great boat to fish from is Jamie Hinson's 'Happy Hooker' . It's a pleasantly sized boat that fishes four guests comfortably.
Jamie takes time to assist each guest individually and makes sure that everybody has satisfying days fishing. We had a superb morning's fishing over the weekend. We were hunting Barracuda!
And here is Ivan with first catch of the day. In all 5 good sized Barracuda were caught. in the morning session as you can see below.
Barracuda are an aggresive, predatory fish. They grab the bait and run like mad and they make fabulous eating. One of these ended up on the menu at the Club Olympus Poolside Bar.
Here below see Olympus Chef Shelley wondering which way it's going to go in the oven!
The best way to cook them is to parcel them up in tin foil with plenty of lemon juice, honey, chopped onion, garlic, cherry tomatoes, Rosemary, salt and pepper and roast it in its own juice for 35 minutes. The meat then falls off the bone. It is firm, pure white, juicy and delicious!
Here is Ivan, up to his old fish kissing tricks again!

Tight Lines everybody!
