Kenya catching

Found 2 charter boats in Lamu, Kenya which is about 50 miles from the Somali border. (safe distance according to locals) Went with Captain Nils from the Peponi hotel in his 32' Blackfin. Really rough--about 45 minutes out and trolled back toward the reef. I had a torn rotater cuff so my daughter did all the catching. Did pretty good for only fishing 3 hours. Almost everything caught was on a 12" Rapala on a downrigger. Coral Trout (a grouper) is the most beautiful fish I've ever seen.


Oh, and a donkey on the beach eating a coconut. Just because.

Good photos! Thanks for posting. If it was rough then you were in the right boat - the Blackfin 32 is probably THE original battle-wagon.


So cool that you got out fishing in East Africa - I have been diving there but never blue water fishing.


Cheers
James

That's awesome. I used to spend a lot of time in different parts of Africa. Almost miss it every once in a while, almost.
