Gone Fishin'

The 5am wake-up was so worth it! I had a great time fishing with John.

I used strobe on the first cast.

When the sun came up I shot some silhouettes.

Tools of the trade.

After an hour or so, it was time to use fresh Mayport shrimp as bait. The first big hit escaped with the shrimp, hook, line & sinker, but then we caught a baby bonnethead shark. It was so cool! John asked me if I wanted to touch it. I touched it with one finger & when it flinched, I thought it was gonna bite me.

I got brave with shark #2. It's small, but you can feel its strength.

A tiny shark ... so cute!

There was no stopping me with shark #3! I couldn't get enough of them!

Uh oh! John got a birds nest but had the tools & patience to untangle the line.

The final cast.

Time to call it a day. After all of this excitement I need a nap!
