He and his friend, Carl, (both who would be considered 'old salts' in regard to the telling of fish tales), chartered a boat from Orgeon Inlet, NC. They traveled off shore to the the Gulf Stream Current (also known as the 'river' in the ocean), and although the water was extremely rough, they had a wonderful fishing trip catching large tuna and Mahi-Mahi.
I just had to share this photo of them after their return. I love hearing my Dad get excited about something he is so passionate about. Carl is on the left, my dad is on the right.
Of course they enjoyed the spoils of their catch with family and friends last night, and Mom spent today canning tuna. Mmmmm! I can't wait to get a jar of it!
I suppose that tomorrow I will call to tease him about spending all day catching 'chickens' - you know 'chickens of the sea'.
He sure is good at catching those sea chickens - LOL!
Friday.. edit to add..
Here are a couple of more photos emailed to me, from Mom, for your viewing pleasure.. The first is of the Mahi-Mahi, which is a gorgeous fish when in the water - a dazzling, bright, greenish fading to blue (my favorite stamping color combos) Unfortunately, it loses some of that brilliance once out of the water. The second is the tuna.
btw.... she is still canning tuna!
