Mozambique Trip! (Feb 3-6, 2006)

The fish I caught (and by ā€œIā€, I mean me plus 3 other people pulling on the rod) from deep sea fishing in a channel off the coast of Pemba in northern Mozambique. These are two King Fish (8kg and 5kg). We hooked another 3 which got away (and the one that got away was of course enormous - it must have been as it broke the 100kg line!). Crew from left to right: Paolo (skipper), Chris, Me, John (fisherman who set up the rods and pulled hardest).


Mozambique girl on Ibo Island, an old trading and slave post. Ibo is still inhabited by locals but much of it is a ghost town, with old colonial building broken down with trees growing through the walls. Amazing island.


Mangrove Kingfisher, apparently a rare species.

Nice fish! It seems the Kingfisher bird was jealous of your ability to land the 8 kg behemoth.
