We hired a fishing boat twice from Patricia at Captain Pablo's. Both times we went out with Captain Fernando, who takes his job quite seriously and who knows his dorado (mahi mahi) about as well as any man can know a fish.
Our first morning out he brought his son Alex, who, at 9, is a budding fisherman in his own right. After about a half hour catching bait (live sardines using a cast net), we went out for the dorado, only a couple hundred yards from shore. Alex stayed busy throwing out sardines and splashing water around the boat -- which is supposed to attract the dorado, and which apparently works, since we landed six nice ones and a spanish mackerel before we begged to go home. Then Alex put his line in and caught probably the biggest one of the day.
The second trip, without Alex, we were less lucky. Just one skipjack before the pouring rain started. We came back drenched and disappointed, but it was hard to blame the captain.
My only complaint is that I thought the restaurant Patricia was at would cook our fish for free. They did cook the fish, and it was excellent, but we paid menu prices. She was, however, nice enough to freeze the rest of our dorado filets for us until we came to get them.
