Besides being pretty good spearos, we developed ourselves as pretty good cooks as well, haha, well not all of us… Anyhow.
What we do with the fish we catch? EAT it. All fish we catch we share with our guests and crew. No matter who shot it.
We eat our fish fried, grilled, cooked and raw as well. In a salad, in a sandwich, in a taco, with pasta or with rice.
This week I was really craving for some raw fish. And my favorite for that is the Cero Mackerel (looks like Spanish Mackerel). After a couple of days of strong winds in the water you could clearly see parts with stirred up sand in between blue parts. Perfect circumstances for Mackerel.
This fish came towards me when I was hanging out at about 20ft in an area of about 100ft. It is great to dive shallow and to see what kind of running fish will approach you when you are in a deep area.
A Cero is a not the biggest fish to catch, though its taste is in my personal top 5.

We breath. We drink. And we eat. We like breathing healthy air. We love to drink water (jeje and a diet coke). And we love to eat fresh fish. Years ago when I started SpearfishingToday, I speared fish to have a meal. I liked that so much and was so enthusiastic about it that I started to teach people how to catch their own fish.
We are not allowed to sell our catches, which I fully support. Imagine we would get paid per kilo fish we bring home. Then it might be tempting to shoot way more fish than we want or need. Basically nothing changed from years ago. We still shoot fish for consumption and that is the reason why we spear a fish.
In the picture you see that some people can´t wait to start eating that delicious fresh fish. Also, I see now that Diego is running to get a bit of Sashimi; tranquilo amigo, there is enough for everybody.

Shooting a fish and getting it on the boat is not that hard, haha. The hardest part is to decide who will prepare the fish. When, in what way and with who you wanna eat it. Life ain’t easy. Some fish taste best the same day, like Snapper and Grouper. Others like Jacks, you better to eat a day later. Try it, the meat is softer and tastier. Unless… you like Sashimi.
This week we enjoyed a raw fresh Permit cut into slices straight after the trip. A good sauce with it and the Permit tasted excellent. I like shooting fresh fish, but I don’t like cooking it often though. But this way it is super fast, super fresh, super easy and super delicious.
