and when we were almost in we could see the lure and we thought there was no fish on it until we saw it jump. We pulled it in all the way and we saw this:
Pretty big, huh. To all those Poppi's out there, "I caught a fish THIS big!!!!!" We thought it was a mackerel which apparently has a fishy taste so we threw it back. We drove forward some to make sure we didn't catch the same one again and we threw the lure back in. We researched it some in our handy dandy Atlantic wildlife book and found that it was actually a tuna. Darn. Five minutes later we caught another of the same kind of fish. This time we kept it. It was a bit smaller than the other one, probably 2 feet long and 10 pounds. My mom took it down below and filleted it. We got 2 pretty nice steaks out of it. Tonight were gonna grill it and I'm going to start my news years resolution. EAT SEAFOOD!!!!!!! Before this trip, I always hated seafood, but I know that's all we'll be eating sometimes so it's going to be eat seafood or starve. Well, at least that's what my parents say.
Update: I know you are all wondering whether I liked the fish or not, and to tell you the truth, I really didn't. Sorry to let you all down.
