edited April 2012 in EggHead Forum
My wife and I dropped the 9 month off w the grandparents in New Smyrna and drove south to Islamorada to do sum sport fishing. Ended up w Mahi, tuna, and Amberjack. Sad to say my Lg Egg is in Atl. Can't wait to get home and get her salty. http://i1254.photobucket.com/albums/hh612/jholland70/f7b9113b.jpg

    All this great fish, just want to cook it properly. Thinking hard about a mini for the next trip.

    I went fishing a couple of times, and spent a night at the home of Capt. Don Gurgiolo on Islamorada.

    A very fond memory.

    My frat brother charters his own boat down here. We've had 2 great trips down fishing w him.

    The best thing about islamorada is being in boat range of north and south bimini. They sell codeine over the counter and rum in a bottle with a cork and no label is easy to find.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Those tuna look yummy, too. I remember when we were in Costa Rica, the captain of our fishing charter called them "footballs" because of the shape. We had fresh caught sushi on the boat, on the way back to shore. Best fish I've ever eaten, without a doubt.

    The Mahi was prepared 3 different ways at one of the local restaurants and the Tuna was prepared raw. Delicious to say the least.

    Ohhhhhhhh I so wish I was in the Key's right now.   You can't tell it - but the pic on my profile was taken not far off of Little Torch Key - headed into Little Palm Resort.

    Good looking catch Taz. My wife and I love it down there. Spent our honeymoon down there fishing.

    If anyone has some pointers on how to cook the Mahi (temp, spices, etc) I'd love to hear em. Gonna be back home to the Egg on Sunday.

    Tazcrash -- I love hawks kay - highly recommend it for anyone visiting the keys.   Too funny, I know more or less exactly where you are standing in those photos.  Have been tied up down the row closer to the fuel pumps before.

    this thread is giving me the itch to go to the keys....

    Cen-Tex -- have you ever been to Little Palm, if not - it is a one of a kind experience.   Feel free to hit me with any questions if you want, tend to spend some time in the keys.

    The Waldorf used to be several chains. If you're talking about Casa Marina, that was the hotel Henry Flagler built as the terminating point of the Overseas Railroad. I was born down there in Key West back in 1960.

    We stayed at Ocean Key Resort right across from Sunset Key @ Mallory Square. Place is beautiful!!

    I'd cook the mahi between 400-425 degrees until its opaque. It depends on how thick the filets or steaks are. More than likely 5 to 8 minutes a side.
