Ocean Fishing

Last weekend was a busy one. After the snorkeling and the sailing I also hopped on another boat the next day and went fishing. If you get together 4 or 5 people, a half day of fishing isn't too expensive and it's a lot of fun too. If you also catch fish it's really worth it.

In order to get out of the lagoon you have to go through SAR Pass which is a really rough section. I couldn't get any pictures because I had to hold on tight to keep from getting tossed out of the boat.

We were surrounded by rainclouds and saw several nice rainbows

Pretty fish
After 4 hours we only managed to get one fish in the boat!

It's called fishing....not catching.


The fish is called an Aku. I have no idea if I have that spelled right....feel free to correct me in the comments. Even though we only got one fish this time, it was fun. I love being out on the water.
