Catch of the Day

The Mahi Mahi

The Mahi-Mahi


We've been having a little fishing contest onboard Kalakuta for the last few days. Oz versus France.

My first mate, Mr. Tristan, a real Ozzie fellow from Vico, has done a great job setting all the gear i've bought when we stopped in Broome. And like a real ozzie, he's been bragging about his fishing skills all along the cruise since our departure from Indo. (The other thing he's been loud about is his female crew recruiting skills, but sadly with the same results as fish catching…). So today, the make him a bit quieter, the french team got serious : after catching the first fish of the day, a small but nice tuna, the skipper finally hooked the Holy Grail of fishes on this side of Oz : the delicious, beautiful, elusive Mhi-Mahi !!! That puts the frog team in the lead, 3-1. And it also puts the Autralian crew in a really bad mood, since this is the fish he'd been wishing he's catch someday in his miserable short life :)

So all good here, we have sashimi, ceviche and grilled fish sorted out for the next few days. Good to be able to feed without having to go to a supermarket :) Tomorrow is rest day, the wind was blowing really strong in our nose all day and we finally reached Yardie's creek early in the afternoon, so we'll be staying here until the weather gets better.
