I started out the day early (had to wake at 5am and be on the boat dock by 5:45am). Here’s me looking not so lovely at that dastardly hour of the morn. I seem to have good luck wearing skirts while fishing. Works like a charm.
Our guide’s name was Omar, and he was a pro at finding good spots for us to fish. But first we had to go get our bait. No ordering from a bait shop here. We headed out to a certain section of water to cast for sardines, which we caught and later used as bait for the bigger fish.
Our goal was tarpon, but we didn’t catch any of those. Even though we spotted many, they were quite elusive. I did catch a barracuda! Nice teeth! The one I caught was only about 1.5 feet, but a guy on our boat caught a four-footer.
I cannot explain in words how beautiful this water is. Hopefully my photos can!
