Huatulco, Mexico – Day 5 – New Year's Eve Day, Early Morning Sunrise & Early Morning Catch of a Mexican Sierra

New Year’s Eve Sunrise at Chahué Beach

New Year’s Eve started with my early morning run from Section J, La Crucecita down to Chahué Bay and Chahué Beach.

Breakwater Pier at Chahué Beach

I made my way to the neighboring Chahué Marina’s breakwater pier. There seemed to be a larger than usual gathering of people there.

Fishermen Along The Breakwater Pier At Chahué Beach

A Fisherman Catches A Pacific Sierra – Also Called a Spanish Mackerel or Mexican Sierra

This was an exciting moment when a fisherman’s rod did a sudden, violent jerk! The crowd seemed to watch it happen at the same time and gasped!

He reeled and reeled the fish in, walking over rocks to move with the fish. With the help of another fisherman, the fish was brought out of the water and finally captured. The fish is a Pacific Sierra – also known as the Spanish mackerel or Mexican sierra.

I felt bad for the poor fish, dying there in front of me. Yes, I know – the hunter/gatherer thing. But I guess in my aging years, I’ve become much more sensitive to the death of animals to feed us.

Buenos dias

S, 🙂
