The fish processing vessel Timoneer has been busy. Kyle got the ball running with a Mahi Mahi during the afternoon. Then after dinner we had reached calm waters and we slowed down for half an hour before sunset. It worked Robbie got a Mahi Mahi and Jonny got a tuna.

We all had a great night sleep in the calm conditions. Just before sunrise we passed 5 cruise ships going through the traffic separation scheme off Cuba. Once the sun was up I put the lines out and not top be out done by the crew I caught a Mahi Mahi as well. We are all looking forward to sushi for lunch and fish and chips for dinner.

At the moment we are motoring along the edge of the Bahama Bank which has bright blue 6m deep water and we are in very deep, dark blue water. Fish are jumping so it might be time to put the lines back out and see what we can get.

Cheers JC
