Nuka Hiva - Tuamotus - Day 3

153 miles today (this morning) now at 13-13S 143-08W

Not much new. Same tack for 2 1/2 days. hardly touched a rope!

This afternoon the wind is dying down some. The weatherman predicted 15 knots steady for 5 days.... I remember, I'm not suppose to believe them am I!

We had bought some fish in Nuka Hiva before we left, 1/4 of a big wahoo and some tuna. I fried some wahoo with potato flake breading and some fresh snap beans with bacon and potatoes. Great lunch. The wahoo is in the barracuda family, but not very close... It is a nice firm white meat and very flavorful. A bit nicer than dorado.

No live fish. We changed back to the lures that worked in Mexico, 4" plastic squid, with a little piece of lead. Pink and purple seem to work some. Green and white worked good in Mexico.
