About 4:00, we caught another mahi. This one gave Dave quite a fight. It was a 4 ft bull mahi, our first. We were anchored at Little San Salvador by 6:30 with about an hour of daylight to get the mahi filleted. We weren’t going to snorkel off of the boat, so we threw the parts of the mahi overboard. Towards the end, a shark and a sting ray showed up. This beach is owned by a cruise ship, and they provide all kinds of water sports here. We thought a shark might add a little excitement to their vacation. There weren’t any cruise ships at anchor right now, so no problem.
We enjoyed another great mahi dinner.

|The male head has a strong forehead with lots of good meat in it. I don't think we had a pan big enough to cook the head.|
