Bill, One night when rag girl was on watch she let out a scream. One flew on board and hit her right in the head. It tangled in her hair. I ran up from down below expecting much worse.
They use to land on deck every once in a while.
I guess they would be good for bait but they are great eating. I used to buy them by the bag in supermarkets in Trinidad.
For Mahi Mahi I always used a blue lure and if I sailed by some floating sea weed dragging one behind the boat chances are there would be fish for supper.
Oh, the memories.
