Bill had a great day fishing on the Lobster Boat out of Coco Plum today catching lots of yellowtail and one 4 foot barracuda. Why would you keep a 4 foot barracuda and why would you catch it in the first place? He says, "the challenge", it was caught with a small jig and 12 pound test, no wire. He had a yellowtail on first, and then the barracuda came up and ate the yellowtail and got hooked. When they got back to the dock, this Cuban guy named Fish who was just waiting around to see what was caught went crazy for it. That's Fish, holding up the fish! He took it home in the front basket of his bike to be enjoyed that evening by his family and friends. Just another day of fishing in the Florida Keys.
It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea---whether it is to sail or to watch it---we are going back from whence we came. Quote attributed to John F. Kennedy; Speech, Newport, Rhode Island, 14 September 1962 Public Papers of the Presidents
