still using a fishing pole? not in lima or the texas coast…

chef carlos testino of lima pez restaurant in lima, peru with a 90 kg grouper

got an email this morning and it completely changed the outlook of my day.  i was gonna go out and have a nice day playing golf & drinking beer with some buddies, which sounded like a pretty good day – until my phone vibrates early this morning and it’s a email from chef carlos testino of lima pez restaurant in lima, peru.  so, i open the attachments and this is what i saw!  consequently, my day didn’t sound as fun or productive.  the only thing i planned on catching today was a buzz.  i was filled with jealously and envy!  what a luxury to be able to dive in the pacific ocean, pick out the fish under water you like & do work!  i am so eager to get back to lima.  shithead!

shortly after posting all this non-sense from peru i received an email from chef bryan caswell telling me that we can do the same stuff here in texas.  these photos are from the texas coast!!!  giddy up.
