Gogie and Cuda
More bottom fishing today with legendary Mutton Fish Gogie. Fishing was good until this big guy moved in and gobbled down half the fish we were bringing in. Gogie said we get dis guy. He tied on a piece of steel leader and a big hook on his 90 pound hand line. We baited it with half of a yellow tail snapper he had left us. Within seconds he ate it. This guy was hungry and that was his demise.
Now as to eat him, do so at your own risk. We caught him out by the reef and he was a bit dark. Odds are it would be ok and Uncle took him in a heart beat. Personally, even though I really like cuda I would not eat this guy.
We caught lots of mutton and yellowtail snapper which are excellent eating. It seems lately I have been having more fun with this fishing than hunting the elusive bones.
Tomorrow probably going after the bones again but will see what the weather does in the morning.
