I love to fish, just to get out and away. Inside the plantations,we have rivers, and given our size, rarely are they fished. We probably have about 4 kilometers of rivers that are private for all intents and purposes. These are all wild jungle rivers - with fish. Tropical fish...
And they are skitish to say the least. But, I am starting to fish more often, and I am learning how to catch them. My fishing buddy is a Nicaraguan campesino about 54 years old who insists on carrying all my gear and making sure the gringo doesn't fall in the river.
He gets all the small fish I don't want to bother cleaning and the sabalo which, though fight really well, are too bony for me. But, I get the big guapotes... if I catch them of course.
Yesterday, I got a very nice one, probably 3 lbs. beautiful fish. hit hard, fought hard. tasted wonderful. A lot like marlin. Not fishy at all, even baked and the meat was very, very firm, even chewy.
This message of course was to torture Jsharr.
