Went fishing with my brother yesterday for his birthday. It was his first time out in the Pacific. He caught and released his first Sailfish!
Pacific Sailfish - look at that BLUE water!
All together we caught 3 and failed to set the hook on a fourth. All were successfully released, of course!
Because of the full moon we considered ourselves very lucky to have landed the 3 Sailfish. The radio chatter was full of tales of woe from the other fishing boats, including one boat that landed a Dorado only to have it jump back overboard after bringing it into the boat!
At least we can still hug our trees in good conscience. ;~)
