Until yesterday, I had not ever caught a fish; actually I had hardly ever even been fishing. I don't think I was even prepared for what was to come. We set out on Big Lake with our fishing guide Anthony (who, by the way, has got to be the coolest guide ever!) around 8:00 in the morning. He drove us out about 20 minutes and finally, we stopped to fish. I have to admit that I wasn't all that excited about catching fish. I just wanted to be out on a boat. That is, until I caught the first fish. Then I understood what all the fuss was about.
We stayed out on the lake all day. Between Jamie and I, we caught about 11 redfish, keeping 9 of them. Oh and about the red face, I totally got sunburned. But only on my hands and face. I look pretty goofy, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It was a great day and we had lots of fun...even if I did catch more fish than Jamie;) Beginners luck maybe?
This turned into...
...this. What a fabulous dinner this made. The fact that we caught this fish made it all the more better!
