All the way down to the Canaries Bertie was trying to catch a fish. He got one on the line but lost it. Today, after five days at sea, he finally decided it was time to try again. At 1330 he put in the line and at 1400 there was a fish on it.
A reasonable sized Dorado to fry up tonight. We did the trick of dispatching it by squirting vodka into its gills so it had a happy end.
Unfortunately we have already eaten our only bag of oven chips so now our biggest challenge is to work out how to make oven chips from Smash.
