Upcoming Closure Male
Default We have reopened with a sale

Back from a week in Nags Head, during which I caught my first yellowtail tuna - a 60#, mighty tasty fighter.

I’ll start filling orders today for shipment on Tuesday.

Between now and midnight on Independence Day (EDT), code “JULY4” gets 7.4% off Kelpak, which may be used with other discount codes.

The "minnow" was what we call a "peanut" dolphin (AKA Mahi-Mahi.) "Peanut", because that 30" fish is a baby, only about 2 month old. There is a similar species, dorado, I've gotten in meals around the Mediterranean.

My tuna was the one next to that, weighing in at about 60#. Note the "gaps" in its belly and top near the tail. I can honestly claim "I had to fight a shark to get it into the boat."

I'm glad you won, and not the shark!
