Surf Fishing at Dawn

John & I met at the office at 6:15am to go surf fishing at the Cabana Club. I was hoping we'd catch a shark, since I always get jealous every time John shows me pix of the sharks he catches. I LOVE sharks!

John whips out his Fuji F30 to shoot the sunrise.

John uses the finest fresh Mayport shrimp for bait. The fish have no idea they're $12.99/pound. I learned all kinds of new words today ...
like "snood" (rhymes with hood).

I think he was referring to the second definition.

First we caught a catfish, but we threw it back.

It was a beautiful morning ... great weather & awesome light.

Mike & John discuss the tide. There were plenty of pups frolicking on the beach.

John gave me a great blog quote when he said, "Caryn, would you mind going over there & cutting the head off that bluefish?" (Sorry Evanne!) Of course it was followed by a smirk. I decided not to post the gory pictures even though there were some good ones. (Sorry again Evanne!)

John gives his bait one last pep talk.

The final cast.

After fishing, I went home, loaded my rental car & headed to Savannah for Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. This is the view from my room at the beautiful Westin Savannah Harbor Resort & Spa.

The bottlebrush flowers were in full bloom.
