This learning to fish stuff is hard work (insert sarcasm). First you have to have the right equipment. With the help of Lance and J & M Tackle, Mike was outfitted with a rod, reel and tackle for cast fishing. Next, you need to learn the types of fish in these here waters. For instance, you need to learn that the Crevalle Jack is so big it will bite your line and steal your lure. You also have to find the perfect place to fish. This takes some experimenting. You can try the end of the dock or the corner or out in the dinghy all of which should include a spot for your spouse to sit and sight-see or read (whichever she prefers). Different times of day must be tried as well. As you try out the different areas you will find that you get lots of advice from others. Fishing is a great way to meet your neighbors. Some will share specific techniques and tricks. Others will talk about anything other than where/how they catch their fish.
Stay tuned for future reports on our learning. At this point it appears that we fish like we sail.....Wrinkles in our fishing.
