Day one for the Deelsnyder family netted a bounty of good-eating fish.
Chris and Pam Deelsnyder and their daughters, Jordan and Shelby – from Leesburg VA – spent a half day fishing the reef with the intention of bringing home dinner.
And that they did, despite on-again, off-again rain showers that kept them as wet as the fish. Their haul tallied out to 30 good size yellowtail snapper, a five-pound mutton snapper and three huge mangrove snapper weighing three pounds and more.
They took some of their fish to cook back at their place at Tranquility Bay Resort, and we’re packing, freezing and shipping the rest to them.
This seven-pound mangrove is the largest ever to make its way onto the SeaSquared!
The crew also released some short grouper, and I guess this ramora was looking for a faster ride than it gets with the sharks!
