This is what happens when it is 7 degrees and windy ! This morning I was sitting there drinking my coffee and daydreaming about fishing in the cayes while looking through the window watching two crows fighting over the frozen dog food. I started thinking about the fish in AC and tried to remember the names in Spanish. It's good to know so you know what the local fisherman use as far as terms. 1] bonefish=macabi, 2] Permit=palometa 3] Tarpon=sabalo 4] snook=robalo 5] shark= tiberon 6] grouper=mero 7] jewfish= cherna 8] Shrimp=camaron 9] squid=calamar 10] snapper= pargo. 11] conch=carocol.....I know, I need a life right ? Have a great Friday, Mel S.

In some circles, snapper is huachinango in Spanish.

Hey, i remembered a few more ! dolphin=dorado, mackerel= sierra, octopus=pulpo, barracudo=picudo, horse conch=maimulla.....i have a hobby, i make my own shrunken heads from a real jivaro recipe. just joking, i am slightly crazed but harmless usually. i tie my own flies for flyfishing during these cold days. you right about the redsnapper. it seems, pargos colorados is more common in Belize and Guatemala. ChooChoo, what in the hell is a curmudgeon ? i know, i am only a crazed cabin fevered fisherman, but your occupation is quite differant. best-wishes all mel s........

(ker muj'en) n. an irascible, churlish person. In other words an unrepentant, pissed off, grouchy, grumpy old fart.

It's Friday afternoon, I'm not in San Pedro, it's -17 w/c, and I need a drink.
