Here fishy fishy fishy...

I was pleasantly surprised when my long time friend Pastor Ray aka Papa Ray brought us some fresh fish from the Central Region in Ghana a few weeks ago.  I'm sure he could sense the withdrawal symptoms I was going through, in having not fished in ages, and brought me a gift of fish to help with the twitching.

One thing I love about Ghana is the abundance of fresh fish.  Whether it's herring, mackerel, snapper, grouper, etc. nothing beats fresh fish from the sea.

After opening my friend's gift I noticed that there were a few different species including: Barracuda, Red Snapper, Sea Bream and another unidentified species that looked like it belonged to a schooling type of fish family.  I've never eaten Barracuda so I was looking forward to it.  It was not the huge monsters that one can get but rather the "baby" versions; which still had a nasty set of teeth on them.  Snapper is good anytime of the day and the others were going to join the family fish fry.

Thanks again to my friend for surprising me and helping to calm during my most recent bought of nonfishingitus.  Here are a few shots of the fish to give you an idea of what we had.
