    Great stuff Hank. Sounds like your tour is going well. Have fun!

    Glad to finally get the tale, Hank! Sounds like it was definitely a classic day out there.

    One of these days, it’d be fun to get out there with you and a 20′ boat, and see what we can pull out of those “barren” waters between the beach and the Stream. I haven’t had king mackerel in years!

    Hank, by some weird foody coincidence, I caught a tuna (bluefin) the same weekend you caught your yellowfins and bonitos. Our first couple of days were a sushi-fest, but some of what we froze will be these meatballs. Come February, I will thank you properly.

    It is a day I will never forget, thanks for sharing it.

    Sue says I’m making those meatballs, so I guess I’m making those meatballs. It was a helluva day wasn’t it?

    My first dish was poached ‘trimmings’ from the loins I cleaned up before freezing…of course I poached them in olive oil….Yum. Glad to meet you Hank. Hope you had as much fun as we did.

    Phillip, a good king bite is just about as fun as what we had going on here, but not quite as tasty. ;)

    Those fish are beautiful, and the tale is beautifully told. All I could think of, though was, “sashimi.” :D

    I wonder if you might suggest other fish for this. I was thinking that some snapper (bluefish) fillets might fit the bill, because they are similar if fat content to tuna, and lack the strong fishy flavor.
