Here, Fishy, Fishy, Fishy!

I went out on the boat with some friends today to fish out in the ocean.  It was a banner day for fishing!  The weather was gorgeous, the seas were calm, and the fish were biting like nobody's business.  At one point I had two hooks on my pole and caught two fish at once!  Pam managed to do that almost every time she put her pole in the water.  She also caught a humongous Trigger fish!! (Makes me wonder what exactly she was using for bait. And where can I get some for next time?)  My DH even caught TWO sharks! Mostly we caught black sea bass, but there were a few pin fish, toad fish, lizard fish and flounders in the mix too. I caught my first flounder today!  It was almost a keeper too, but it was a half an inch too short. Rats! But wasn't it a beauty? My friend Shannon was kind enough to hold it for me while I snapped a picture.
