Most of the time, Mouna Ghossoub is underwater along with her husband Deron Verbeck, who took the above photo of Mouna. Yesterday though, they both had an exciting day on the water fishing and Mouna shared it via e-mail last night:
Today I went fishing with Deron and we caught 4 rats (what small ahi or tuna are called), the biggest being 7 lbs. (3 Kg). We saw lots of people using the palu bag (a bag filled with pieces of fish that are used as bait to catch bigger fish). The bag is dropped deep and opened, releasing the bait and a hook. So Deron, who made his own, decided to drop the bag, the first time ever. Immediately, we caught an 11 pound ahi (5kg).
Finally, Deron brought the fish to the boat again and grabbed the line in one hand and the gaff in the other and "Voila". He gets the beautiful Ahi into the boat. We took it to a local restaurant to sell it. It weighed 86.5 lbs (40 Kg).
