On the boat we talked about an assortment of topics, some of which included injuries and then reflecting on their past mistakes. The reason we had gone into the injury discussion was because we had gone into a strait that is dangerous at high tide because of the currents. Our boat captain, who works with the harbor police, had told us a story about how one day he was responding to a boat on fire and how it was just the engine smoking. Just about that time, we had got our first fish. I was the closest, so I was the one to reel him in. Sadly it was too small, so we couldn't keep him. and we continued for a bit longer until all three of our staff had caught one fish each.
Getting back to the dock, I was slightly anxious because I didn't see Eric. Just as we were about to wrap up, Colin somehow managed to catch a 28.25 inch Stripped bass. In the end, Colin won the largest fish award and another boat got the most fish due to catching 12 fish... But still, no sign of Eric. Now that was a lucky break for me. Later, Eric told me that his boat had gotten back 10 minutes after everybody had left! I won, but only due to disqualification...
Lookin for that fish
