Fishing Report: The Gulf of Mexico

We took the day off yesterday and went fishing aboard the Cajun out of Pasadena, Florida. Captain Bob took us 8 miles out into the Gulf and I am happy to report that we saw nary a drop of BP's oil...didn't see many fish either, but what the hell. Some days you do and some days are meant for drinking beer.

Guess who baited her own hook on this trip? Besides, squid and fish guts are supposed to be good for the nails, or so someone said.

That isn't bait. That was a catch. Woo - hoo!

We landed on top of Grouper Nurseryland and caught a shit-load (official unit of Southern measurement) of these babies. On the downside, had to throw'em all back. On the upside, had to throw'em all back...to protect the species from over-fishing.

My contribution...Moby Minnow. Reminds me of the saying, "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day."

 And then, "Teach a man to fish and he will sit out on a boat all day drinking beer." ~Anonymous
