The fish made me look bad last trip. Cero mackerel cut my mutton baits off, the drift was too fast for some of the muttons, the fish on the reef found the rocks and a sailfish swam around in the slick, thumbing his nose at me. After running through my lists of excuses I guess I will blame the full moon. To soothe my bruised ego I baked a cake :)
Actually, Michele had a birthday. Since I am cheap, I baked her a Devils food, with chocolate chips, peanut butter icing and pecans with a little cocoa powder for garnish. Peanut butter icing? Hey, its her birthday not mine.
Anyway, I will brave the finicky fish filled seas tomorrow to try and redeem myself for the last poor performance. Shame though, we started with a keeper mutton on the first drop, just couldn't keep it going. Now if my customer had wanted Cero Mackerel, I would have been a hero, but such is life.
