Photo story: fishing dorado

We left together with the sunrise
While our captain was taking care for the bait, we watched a little bit bigger animals. Though, their family problems weren’t very interesting for us.
Sailors say that woman in the boat means misfortune. However, this girl was our fortune. After the 43 sec of her first try first male dorado grabs the bait.
Dorado fights hard. No wonder. Our captain Favio says that this fish weigths no less than 20 pounds.
Finally he shows up. Still doesn’t give up until the last second.
After more than 20 minutes of good fight, the fish is in the boat and Antonio is tired but very happy.
Next few hours in the Sea of Cortez are successful as well. We catch four more time. However, we let go one of our prey. The other shows itself out. The third one accompanies our captain home. And the fourth one joins its unfortunate brother.
We already came back, shared, left to home and wouldn’t be hungry for the whole next week. Not bad as for the first time fishing in my life
