So Flymama and family went fishing. We rented a boat and sat in the scorching sun for ...oh... six hours maybe... more or less.
Here's how things went. First, dear daughter B caught a little flounder:
Two photos, in case it is too hard to see the little fish. Sadly, the flounder has to be 17-1/2 inches long to keep, and this one wasn't, so we threw him back. We hadn't located the tape measure yet, so we didn't measure him, but maybe 13-16".
So, second, I... yes I... caught a lovely flounder:
Okay, so next, B caught another little flounder:
So, back and forth it went, fish caught, fish released, fish caught, fish released, etc. All in all, we had a smashingly hot time, and carried away memories and photographs, but no fish.
So funny, but true, our only "Keeper" was caught by our youngest family member, JD:
We ate it for dinner on Wednesday night.
I can't tell you how many got away! We're saying the ones we didn't manage to get into the boat were ALL keepers, the ones that got away! :)
