Trip #24 (7-day) Oct 6-13 (Trip wrap-up)

October 12th, 2018|Trip Reports|

Good afternoon anglers:

Today we woke up to a little breeze from the northwest. But we were still able to find a nice kelp paddy and catch some nice dorado to wrap the trip up.

We are headed home and will be back out for 7 days tomorrow.

Wish us luck and until then, tight lines!

Here’s crewman Hector and Ken Y with his dorado.

Ocean to Galley: Coconut-crusted Wahoo

October 12th, 2018|Capt Art's Blog, Ocean to Galley Recipes|

Looking for a way to prepare your Searcher-caught wahoo? How about chef Geri Sue’s Coconut-crusted Wahoo? This is one recipe you will not say “Ono” to!


  • 1 pound of wahoo fillets
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup of water 
  • 1/2 Cup of Coconut (shredded, sweetened)
  • 1/2 Cup of Panko
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Garnish (Optional):

  • Miso Ginger sauce   

Directions: Preheat oven to 325° F.  Combine the egg and water in a small bowl, whisk until mixed. Set aside. Combine the Panko crumbs and shredded coconut on a plate or pie dish. Mix and set aside. Pat the wahoo fillets dry using a paper towel, season each side with salt and pepper(if desired.) Dip the fillets in the egg mixture and then dredge in the coconut/panko mixture. Bake for 20 minutes. If you would like more toasted coconut, broil on high for an additional 3-5 minutes.

Good evening anglers:

This afternoon we did find the magical kelp paddy and had very good dorado and tuna fishing. Tuna were on the small side so most were released, but the dorado were nice size. We all had a lot of fun fishing, but the best part of the day was calm seas!

All methods of lures and bait were working. Here is a nice shot of Captain Mike and Ron W. with a dorado.
