Then this morning, we hooked fish number six...the sixth straight female dorado (you check for gender differently than with mammals, it's apparently all in the head shape). This one is going to be a meal, we just need to stop hooking them so fast.
Tired of the little guys, we brought out the big guns, the secret weapon: Rainbow Warrior, a multi-colored mostly yellow and orange squid. Bring on the big fish!
Confession time: nature scares me. I pull these things in and then hand them over to people more suited to wrestling with live animals. I grab my camera and get out of the way shortly after a girlish shriek and intense fear. The stories will come out, just remember I brought it up here first.
Valis probably has a dozen fish and all this 6 fish bravado is meaningless but it's six more than I caught in the Atlantic.
