Gone Fishin!

It's not every day that your boss offers to take your shift so you can go fishing in his tournament.... that is exactly what happened last Friday! So while my boss took my morning shift at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center... I went fishing in the Far Out Shoot Out tournament with his brother & a couple fellow employees.

We left the dock at 5am Friday morning, took a 3 hour boat ride out to the gulf stream, and proceeded to catch a bunch of dolphin fish (mahi mahi), a yellowfin tuna, a couple of barracudas & a few small albacore. A few rain showers did get us, as you can see me wearing my rain jacket in this photo with one of the dolphins that I caught. But overall it was a wonderful day out on the ocean. And we also won the tuna division of the tournament for the largest tuna, our yellowfin weighed in at 27.95 lbs.

Wow! That's some fish you caught - it looks a lot bigger than those bluegills I used to pull out of the lake - LOL
