Fresh Snapper On The Boat and The King Of Romance

Grilling Red Snapper
Snapper On The Boat

My husband Jess IS the King of Romance and has been forever!  For our anniversary, he arranged the perfect offshore fishing trip for me.  I know, it sounds a little strange to most, but I LOVE to fish.  I've been saltwater fishing with my dad since I was a very little girl and   it is one of my favorite things to do.  I can totally relate to the bumper stick "I'd rather be fishing".  Well our trip was perfect!  Jess and Dad arranged the trip to go out with our friend Danny and his son in law Nathan.  Danny, Dad and I have fished many times together and always have a great time.  Danny's boat is the one place I know I won't get treated like a girl and I get to fish like one of the guys.   That didn't sound right.... you just have to be a girl and like to fish to understand.  
 So the plan was to leave Houston early in the morning, fish and troll all the way offshore about 85 miles, spend the night offshore and fish all the way back in.  It was great!!  Nathan was unbelievable, not only can he cut bait, tie knots and set up trolling rigs, he makes a mean ceviche!!!  Which, by the way, we ate for breakfast because we stuffed ourselves on the Grilled Red Snapper the night before.  I have never seen anyone work as hard as Nathan did!!  What a great guy!

  1. I loved the story of your fishing expedition and Nathan's ceviche is not too shabby either. I love that he starts with a ready made pico de gallo. It makes life much simpler. Have a wonderful holiday. Blessings...Mary
