Right The short pumps will really work a fish in. right away. Really do not use your arm you use some your body You are really using your weight. Most people do this. too much arm Let the rod do the work. He’s coming right on in. the most important thing is
especially using lite line we are using heavy line on this. big rod is when you come up go
down very very smoothly. come up! take the line. make sure you always have pressure. Yes with lite you break it when you are jerky Huh. you know you take A 16 pound test line can handle a lot fish.

Patio restaurant and we’ve brought a cople of the Dorado we caught today back into their kitchen and their chef is
going to show us how to prepare this and we are going to enjoy some great fish that we caught today. Ok pat what we have we have the Dorado fillet and then we we have tomatoes bell peppers and onions we will use a little mustard soy sauce pepper and brandy Hmm! looks and a little bit of wine this
one of our specialties here it’s all going to be cooked in butter. So I am going to let the chef show you how we do it. Cut a little fillet this is a big fish so he cuts it in half. spores it a little there you go That way it exorbs all the juices that we are going to be putting in there Then he puts a little salt both sides, a little
mustard this is looking good already Fantastic
you know it makes all my effort worthwhile doesn’t Little Soy sauce then a little paper I will get on
his way then he has some hot butter then he puts the fish in the hot butter he will leave it it between 3-5 minutes in hot butter and allows the fish to cook okay get a little golden brown there he is
okay then he puts all the vegetables in
there the onions tomatoes and the bell peppers put it back on the fire gonna hit it with a brand he’s gonna hit it with the brandy and that’s it I forgot would put a little white wine
you need to make some brandy with a little white wine and that’s all and now I am going to show you the finished product but we will be eating man does that look great, doesn’t look beautiful. you did a great job. It’s a unique way to repair. one of the great game fishs of the world. Let go try this on I ‘m ready to eat look forward to seeing you next week
