Got invited out on a "head boat" charter in Sarasota and my daughter caught a Rabbitfish puffer. Probably 20 inches long with weird beaky teeth. Image

Went silver salmon fishing out of Seward the past few days. Fishing was a little hit and miss but the wife and my buddy from AZ wanted to give it one more shot today. Where we fish is pretty protected but to get there involves crossing 10 miles of open ocean. Fishing was good and we stayed too long. Pulled out from behind the island and the seas had built up pretty good with maybe a 10 foot swell to go with it. While crossing back at 5-8 knots I had a charter boat hail me and offer to knock down the seas a little for me. He did not have to do it but it was a kind offer. Somebody is getting a GOOD bottle of rum delivered to them. Any suggestions for a good rum?

What they said. My tastes run cheaper and slightly less fancy.

Here's a very good rum, pretty widely available in the U.S. It's an agricole- that means it's made from sugar cane juice, not the molasses sludge left over from sugar production, which is the common way to make rum. It's got a light, complex flavor, not overly sweet. They make a 3 year old and a 15 year old. In blind taste tests among family and friends, we preferred the 8 year old as it had a flavor complexity that the 3 year old lacked, but kept the sugar cane flavors forward, rather than the oak barrel they use for aging.

I agree, that was a very nice thing that captain did for you.

My preferences in order of how little I let myself drink for fear of running out:

Kirk & Sweeney 12
El Dorado 15
Botany Bay Estate (I have to import this one)
Abuelo 25

I think the most expensive there is a abuelo at about $75 (non-Alaska dollars). The botany it problematic as it goes down like candy (vt_jeff has witnessed this in real time).

The K&S is God’s gift to mankind. It’s definitely a sipper. It’s light (flavor and color) but has huge cask flavor. If you really like a bottle you’ll want to track the batch number (same with botany) as it is small batch at the 12+yr.

I tried to keep the lowbrow views out but … RUM!!!!

We hired a financial advisory early this year and low and behold he loves to fish! Even better he has a 36 foot Yellowfin with 900 hp on the back! And he knows how to throw a cast net and where to get bait!
Ran 55 miles out and fished in 145 feet of water. The bite was solid for about 45 minutes, so we were releasing small but legal red snapper. Put 4 nice ones in the box. The bite slowed and then stopped but a large thunderstorm with LOTS of lightning decided to blow up and head straight at us, so we pulled out (just in time).
Nothing happened at a grouper spot coming in...
Great day, red snapper for dinner tonight, think I have made a new friend, and running 60 mph in a 36 foot boat is FUN!
