Half day trip was all I needed, just a little bit of time on the water. Half day cost $65.00 and everything is included. Lunch, endless drinks (no alcohol allowed) fishing license, bait and tackle, rod and reel,parking and they also included squid and sardines for bait. I'm ready to go! I got a nice position, a front row stern postition which has an add on price of $10.00 I took it. It was awesome!
It was a pretty nice day, not too choppy and lots of young kids and parents on board. It was a good mix and everyone was congenial to one another, making for a nice trip. I got three nice (smaller) catch and release fish. There was no need to keep them when I was only visiting and was in a hotel. It was very sporting of me, yes? I will make up for it by having seafood tonight for dinner.
So there was no camera involved on the boat, I was not going to try to fish and take pictures, so you will have to trust me that there was a huge smile on my face the entire time. We all disembarked and the fishing poles were gathered up and hosed down. Everything get salt on it and if there are any metal parts, they rust. Everything right on the ocean has a tendancy to disinigrate. Cars used to be horrendous, even after a year, until they started making them out of plastic, because that makes me feel safer. Right? Houses have to be painted every year. As wonderful as all that salt and sand is, there is a price to pay.
Everyone lines up, sort of, gathers round is more like it... to pick up their fish. The deck hands will gladly gut and scale the fish for you, even taking the head off if you are not inclined to make soup with it. Waste not, want not, you know what they say?
There were little sharks for some, and only this guy in the green and black shorts seemed okay with touching fish. Everyone else tried really hard to not get too close to it. I didn't have touch anything fishy smelling. Except my own hands.

I wish I had gotten a better shot. He was coming to hand off this girls fish to her. Does she look like she wants to carry it to her car? I think not. I think the expressions of the people were funnier and a better time than the fishing and I thoroughly enjoyed that.
This was another whole set of entertainment. This guys job was to descale, gut and dehead if needed the fish for people. The pelicans knew their job in life. This young one knew it was rough in the water, so he took his position near the guy. The guy rewarded him with some scraps. They are all waiting!
Please leave the link to your post here so it can easily be found by others. It helps you and me to have them in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much for joining us!! ❤
What a rough crowd! He fed the crowd to keep them busy, then he fed the young one. I had them flapping all around me, they have wings of iron. Don't get hit with one of those. You can see below, the young one got his prize. I think they have the coolest looking pouch! It is called the gular pouch. I can see that he has food in it.
And just like that, this post is done. I hope you had a good time and learned a little something new. As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit, and just remember, #MarketFriday loves you! Thank you for supporting the challenge! Have a most fabulous day! Cheers!!
As always, there must be flowers to color my world. #alwaysaflower I want to thank you for joining me on #MarketFriday. I hope you had a good time! It definitely was not a great shot, but, I couldn't believe his mouth got that big! Squint! It might not look so blurry!

What should I bring on my fishing trip?
Camera, sun block, hat, hand towel, comfortable shoes, cooler (but leave it in your car), cash for tipping the hard working guys/gals on board that work hard for you all day long. You are welcome to bring your own fishing rod; however, you can only fish with 1 at a time. Most people just use the fishing gear we supply. source
