I wasn't sure what to expect. It's an all day fishing charter out of a fishing city. There were lots (and lots) of boys. There was maybe three girls on the whole boat (And two of them knew the captain!), so I knew this was going to be a dirty fishing trip! When we left the marina, they took us out about an hour and a half to some reefs. The water was beautiful and the sun was shining. It was very relaxing.
I will say that I have heard going fishing on a charter boat can make people very, very seasick. The constant rocking when you're sitting there trying to catch fish has made many of my friends throw up overboard. I bought some seasick medicine just in case and took it as we left. Bad idea! This medicine made me SO so SO drowsy. The first two hours of the trip I sort of just sat there in a daze. I perked up after a bit (and a beer) and got my rod and started to *fish.* I legtimately caught two fish... but neither were things that you could eat. I don't remember the names of them but one was a type of grouper that had polka dots and the other fish was something that stings people if you touch it. Awesome. My
What everyone caught on board
After a very long seven hours on the boat we headed back to our hotel and grilled one of the bigger fish right there! It was pretty neat. We stopped at an organic farmer's market nearby and got some corn on the cob for $1 and we had ourselves a meal. It was really fun. I'm surprised that I actually said a seven hour fishing trip with lots of dudes was fun... but it was.
I love all the colors in this pic! LOL
We definitely passed out at 8 p.m. I was asleep before sunset on a Friday night! Major fail. We slept a solid 14 hours before beginning the best day of our vacation...
