We Fished

There is nothing that unusual about us fishing.  We do it about every month or so.  When we fish off the dock we get little grunts.  Nothing that exciting.

Last Friday Allen took a few hours off of work and we went out on the boat to fish.  Nada.  Nothing.  Zip. Zilch.

Saturday was gorgeous too so we set out again.  This time in the opposite direction.  The first time Allen threw is hook in the water he Immediately started reeling it in.  I thought he was just playing, or had lost his bait.  This is what he  had



Gray Snapper, I think.

Then right after that (as in 2-3 minutes) he caught this huge Triggerfish.


It had the funniest teeth.


Jackson caught several of these.  Long and skinny, but not an eel.


Look at the little baby.


Another long skinny


A Strawberry Grouper!!!


Another Grouper


There are rows of teeth inside the gills of the grouper.


Here is someone else’s better photo of what they really look like…

Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis), cleaning inside the mouth and gills of a Tomato Grouper (Cephalopholis sonnerati), also known as Tomato Rock Cod. Found throughout the Indo-West Pacific, including Great Barrier Reef, Australia.

And another Grouper!   Is this exciting or what!?!


There were more fish than this, but I don’t want to post more of the same, but let’s just say there were lots!!


It also didn’t hurt that this was our view on the way there and back!


I just don’t think we will have another day as magical as that for quite some time.

We only kept the snapper.  The rest went back into the water.

Now who wants to come fishing??
