A day of fishing

Well today was back to work for Rudy and I. The kids start back to school tomorrow.., but Sunday was a day of fishing.

I caught a monster of a trigger fish and made Rudy take a picture of it. They don’t normally get this big.

Rudy of course had to catch at least one yucky shark. Sharks rob your bait; they will also chump on any fish you catch while you are reeling it in. Some friends told us shark is good to eat. So we gave it a try once when we caught a hammerhead. Turned out we didn’t agree with them. The meat is squeaky imo. Oh, I can’t forget to mention that once you catch one they are hard to get off the line. Their skin is tough so it is hard to gaff them and then trying to get the hook out of their mouth is quiet the work out.

When we got back into the port to load the boat up we saw the Disney Wonder cruise ship heading out. It’s one of my favorites in the port, a very pretty ship.

All in all it turned out to be a good day of fishing. We caught several trigger fish, some snapper and some sheephead. Although to Rudy’s disappointment we did not catch any grouper or cobia.

Well that was the end of our holiday break, not to bad of a ending.
