Puffer and PompanoThursday, September 20, 2012
It's been a while since I last posted. It's not that I've been busy, or doing anything exciting, I just haven't felt like sitting down in front of the computer lately. For once I've actually been enjoying doing housework, and doing it well, which takes up a good portion of my time when I'm not working (like everything else I do, I am inefficient at this as well). I've also been playing nurse to one of my cats whose body has decided she can no longer digest "normal" proteins and so must take a myriad of pills and eat a very special (ridiculously expensive) food made from venison and rabbit.
Anyhow, the weather has taken a much appreciated turn towards fall and we found time on Sunday for some fishing. Cooler weather means hungry fish, and hungry fish mean a good time and full bellies for us.
My second cast of the morning brought up a puffer fish who was deflated when I reeled him onto the pier but began to blow up as we attempted to get him off the hook. Very cool fish, and supposedly good eating, but seeing as this is the second one I've ever caught, we returned him to the sea.
It wasn't long before we started hauling in pretty little fish called pompano which have a reputation for being one of the best eating fish you can catch here in North Carolina.
Next week brings visitors, once again, and then on into October, when I'll do a little traveling of my own! Can't wait!
