My best day ever

I came to Costa Rica for the first time in my life. Never caught a fish before, not even Wahoo. Quite a happy day when I first went to Costa Rica and went fishing. On the appointed day, we set sail for the sea. At first, my target was Sailfish. While fishing for Sailfish, I tried to hook up a couple. Once upon a time, I was successful in fishing. One Wahoo beat through my 100-pound leader after a blistering run, and I snapped a response to my reel and my flat line. My dream for a long time was to enjoy hundreds of Wahoo grilled and Wahoo fried fish with rice, beans, and grilled sweet corn at a Taco stand. I succeeded in doing Wahoo fishing. I even ate delicious Wahoo with rice, beans, and grilled sweet corn at the taco stand.
