BBQ'd Mahi Mahi...Gotta Catch it first!!!!

Well Guam is an island about a seven and a half hour flight west of Japan on a beeline towards the Philippines. And because it is surrounded by water and right next to the Marianas Trench, the deepest part of the ocean, our deep sea fishing is fantastic. 

We have no shortage of catching fish around here for BBQ. 

Here are just a few pictures of some of our catches....

Deep Water Wrasse


5 Marlin total, # 6 threw the hook

These are just a few pictures of what is available in the waters that surround Guam. From Scuba Diving, skin diving, bottom fishing, casting, trolling, deep bottom fishing, to just about a half dozen other ways that fishing has been done in and around Guam for many years, there is just no shortage of catching your favorite fish for BBQ.

The good thing is that you can go out anytime you'd like, weather permitting, and enjoy your fishing. No limits, no license, no hassles. Just plain fun. Some of us don't call it "fishing". Some of us call it "catching".

But whatever you call it, it all makes for one heck of a great BBQ!!!

Until next time....

All I can say is awesome!!
Now I'm really hungry for some good BBQ fish!!
Here in West Tennessee, fish out here is not that available.
I guess we need to go to the Gulf Shores to find some.
Thanks for the great pictures & tell Lupie she looks wonderful

Bennette, thanks for the positive comments. Hey in Tennessee they have a fish that is called crappie. It's delicious. I used to catch it all the time in Califonia in the lakes. Try this recipe with crappie. I think you'll like it.

I will pass the message on to Lupe.

Take care and happy BBQing. Rueben
