... Cape Canaveral
Greetings from Cape Canaveral where a fishing pole, live shrimp, and a few beers combined to make a wonderful afternoon.
On my first cast I caught a whiting. We didn't think it was all that big and tossed it back. After a while we noticed that mine was twice as large as any other whiting that was caught that day. When we returned the pole and checked the record for the largest whiting, it was 3lbs 12 oz. Mine had to be around 3lbs. Agh! How funny is that?! We had no idea!
The guy to the left of me caught a stingray and to the right of me caught a shark. Now that's fishing!
By the way, there is a lift off scheduled for Thursday that we may be able to see. How exciting!
