Living on the boat again has been fantastic. Today was a beautiful day. Brian and I went fishing this morning, it was awesome. The sky was blue and shiney, the air was warm, and the breeze was light. The bluefish were boiling the surface of the ocean left and right. Pelicans and seagulls were having a feeding frenzy, a large pod of dolphins even made an appearance. We pulled in countless fish, but only kept the 7 largest. We're going to have a fish fry tonight! A gull got tangled in my line just as a blue hit it, so B and I had to work hard not to hurt the bird while we untangled it, it took awhile and the fish was still on the line by the time we got done. The gull flew away unharmed, thank god. The water was crystal clear and there were scores of ball jellies everywhere. It was super clear yesterday also, and we went to Masonboro Island and walked along the top of the jetty. We could see two small sharks swimming along the jetty and we followed them for quite awhile. They were beautiful. Good stuff.
