First Fishing Trip
Sunday, February 17, 2008
This is our first fishing trip of the year. We got up at 4am blurry eyed but ready with our fishing gear, Ice Chest and Coffee, of course. Arrived at Belmont Pier in Long Beach at 5:30 am, before sunrise, and proceeding to lug our gear to the end of the pier. I caught a fish right away. A beautiful Yellow Striped Surf Perch. During the day, I cought 7 Pearch, 1 Sea Bass and a couple of Herrings. Husband caught a spider crab and some kind of huge fish that got away. He sulked the rest of the day. After 13 hours he said he was done and we went home. I must remember to get healthy food next time we go, and drink more water. By the way, fishing standing up for 13 hours burned over 2800 calories.
