And I'm so happy that they have the opportunity to sail as much as they do and that they've really taken to racing and doing their best! Good luck kids - I'll be cheering for you (while I'm at work...)
Yesterday was errand day - grocery shopping (on pay day weekend - uggggghhhhh), haircut so I don't look like an unkempt bum, putting gas in the minivan and others. But since we would be out, I figured some fishing and ceramics could be worked into the schedule.
I was thinking the fishing and haircut would get Marlon's interest, but it was Noe that volunteered to come along.
She caught a hinalea!!!
I was pitching ika strips and this batch seemed to be coming off the hook way to easily during the cast. On one such occasion I was reeling back the rig as quickly as I could and after a little splashing, I pulled this lai to hand. Bare hook!!!
Fun fishing trip with a rare fishing partner (not really - she comes out a lot, but Marlon does go fishing more)!
I'm trying to get more active, eat better and lose some weight. The easiest part of that is to just go surfing more. Acting on that, I decided I should be surfing at least three times a week - once or twice on the weekends and Wednesday or Friday after work seems to be the best times to get a few waves.
I went out yesterday evening after work - lots of fun (with the benefits of an hour of paddling). I don't know why I don't do this more often (yes I do - check my other blog out - plants).
We checked out another spot on Saturday. The wind was blowing into us - I should have brought either the 10' St Croix Triumph Surf rod or the 13' Nitro. I think either of those would have given my cast just a little more distance. Lots of cool tide pool life and cowry shells.
The fishing was ok - at least I didn't get skunked. Our friends actually got a fish on my bucket list - nice kagami!!!
Lastly, I found a clump of ogo among all these other seaweeds - I harvested it to make some poke.
