The sunrise off the ocean that morning was one of the most beautiful I’ve seen in years. But I’ll let you see for yourselves.
Mike's second cup before leaving the bay
I'm still not awake
We stopped and they said to drop lines. Basically, each person has a deep sea fishing pole with a 4 ounce sinker and a minnow that you hook through the upper mouth out through the top of the skull. Drop the line till it hits the bottom and yank when you get a hit or when you think you get a hit. During the morning, I had pulled in 5 fish, 4 were keepers and they were all red rockfish (which I found out later, were very good eating).
It just looks like Bud Light
Some pictures of all of us.
And some of the fish we caught (this one was tasty)
Mike's tasted fishy, mine was way better.
He was so happy to have finally caught something that I didn't have the heart to tell him it was too small.
I thought it was going to choke on this fish
The crew cleaned the fish for us on the way back
At the end of the trip, we were bushed but I had to stay strong and awake and get pictures of everyone passed out.
