The blue waters of the Atlantic beckoned yesterday and the weather was perfect for some fishing. I set off from Puerto Colon (pictured below) on Jamie Hinson's 'Happy Hooker'.
As we powered away from the Marina, we had a fabulous view back towards Tenerife. You can clearly see Mount Teide in the distance. It wasn't too long before we had rods in the water and we were concentrating on tight lines.
We caught a host of Mackerel which are generally our bait fish as we hunt for bigger stuff. Before long one of our number hauled out this beautiful 'Smooth Hound'
He was returned safely to the sea as we weren't particularly after him. We caught several Stingrays which also went back in they too are not our target.
I caught amongst other things, a pretty Green Puffer fish (or Tambale Verde as they are called here). They are normally found in much deeper water and are a primary food for Marlin.
After a great afternoons fishing, including seeing our sister boat 'The Crested Wave' land two big Albacore Tuna, we headed back to Port, satisfied, sunburnt and safe.
The best bit comes at last when I tot up my catch and see what we are going to have for supper!
Some lovely Mackerel and Sea Bream to go on the Barbie! Marvelous.
