Not to be out done by the Scotland Bay lime, the next day I was invited by the same fishermen to go fishing off saut d'Eau island. And me being the adventurous one grabbed my camera again and went along for the trip to Saut d'Eau (pronounced Sho-Doh) .
So where is Saut d'Eau? Saut d'Eau is a small islandoff the North coast of Trinidad that is mainly inhabited by Brown Pelicans and other bird species. It is a wildlife sanctuary but then, there's no need to worry because from the pictures you will see that the island is very inaccessible.
There are jagged rocks all around the island so any attempt to approach by boat is very treacherous. Actually, while we were approaching the island there was an area the fisherman showed me that had a large rock that was just under the water. If you don't know where it is you can easily run into it.
The only other way to get to Saut d'Eau is by foot. The Saut d'Eau Bay on the mainland is a favourite spot for hikers due to its seclusion, but don't be fooled the hike is a long and hard seven miles to reach to the bay.
Fishing off Saut d'Eau
So, it was me braving the waves, the hot Caribbean sun and the threat of motion sickness (no I didn't get sea sick), fishing off Saut d'Eau for a day. In the end it was fun: I caught two Bonito and a lot of Zuffy that we didn't want, we made some Bonito Pelau on the boat, and had a wonderful experience. Let's get to the pictures shall we? Of course, you can see even more over at the fan page.
By 4:30 a.m. we filled the boat well with bait and left for Saut d'Eau (Sho-doh).
Time to make some Bonito Pelau!
Well you all know by now how I usually end every post...
Ah gone! 🙂
