.. is going to be fucking awesome this weekend!

The boys from work and I have chartered a game fishing boat and we are heading out to sea on Saturday morning to hopefully bag us some nice big Snapper!

The boat we're going on has had 14 world record catches and the Captain seems to be a top bloke from all I've heard. His daughter caught a 395.8kg Tiger Shark a few years ago in a game fishing tournament. This excites me!

I want to bag me a Tiger Shark! But I'll settle for half a dozen decent Snapper!

Are there any other fishing fans on this forum?

I am not a fan of fishing.

However, I did participate in a weekender in the Gulf of Mexico ( Off of Corpus Christi ) and I caught a few hammerhead and dolphin.

The sharks put up a hella fight for a mere 100 pounds, maybe a .5 to 1 hour fight from 1st encounter to pulling in the boat.

But, I'd never willingly plan and go on a "fishing trip" again.

I love to go fishing. I generally just sit and watch , drinking beers and getting sunburned, but I always have an awesome time.

You can't kill them if their wearing people clothes!!


Killing dolphins as akin to fisting the elderly...you just don't talk about it openly on a public forum.:laugh:

On topic...I love fishing, I'm not very good at it but it is one of the few things that really calms me.
Take pictures of your trip dude, it sounds like it's going to be epic..in one way or another. hehe

Mmmm... beers! You're right about that! Even just relaxing while everyone else is duking it out with the fish is fun!

We're leaving at 5am and won't be returning to shore until the afternoon. About 2 hours after we return, I've got to be at my sister's 21st Birthday Party. I think I might smell a bit fishy, but the awesome thing about my predicament is her birthday dinner is at a Japanese restaurant! I'll fit right in!

Fisting the elderly? DUDE! You've totally found a way for me to get myself into the porn industry!

As for killing dolphins.. I'm all for killing the ugly ones. Just leave the bottle-nosed ones alone.
