Tuna Fishing!

Well, no knitting content lately.... busy, busy, busy at work and with all the Holiday stuff going on. But I do have some news that I'm pretty excited about!! My boss is taking me tuna fishing tomorrow!! The bad part is that I have to be ready to go at 5am!!!! YUCK, I'm really NOT a morning person. But I've never been fishing for tuna before, if we catch anything it should be fun.
Here is a photo of one of the guys I work with bringing in one of those huge tunas!! Now, can you imagine me hauling one of these giants in? ha ha!! (I'm 5'2" and about 126lbs) I have caught some big king mackerels & wahoos before but the largest was about 60 lbs.... some of these tunas are over 200 lbs!!! I'll post photos if we catch anything, I thought it was really nice of the boss to take me along even if we don't catch anything.... I work for really nice people now. :) How great is it that your boss asks if you want to ditch work for a day to go fishing??!!!

Okay, we're waiting now... How did it go? I know you can handle a big fish, because my stepmom is not quite 5', and she reeled in a beautiful swordfish! (I think that's what it is... a 7' blue thing? A marlin?)

You have got to have the coolest boss ever! If I lived there, I would have begged you to take me along! Did you catch anything?
