Dominic caught this beauty trolling in the dinghy between Susui and neighboring Munia Island. Not having much luck in the Lau, Dominic did some lure reconfiguration before heading out: heat-shrinking two double hooks together and hiding the new quad hook beneath a skirt of a large orange and pink squid lure.
It worked! He had this three-foot fish on the line in under five minutes of trolling. It was about the same size as the mahi we caught last season, but markedly heavier.
Meanwhile, I've been trying to get creative with all this delicious protein in the ice box (no buddies or villagers nearby to share with, at the moment)—sushi last night, coated in sesame seeds and seared for lunch, and fish tacos tonight.
