Fish Fry

Fishing Buddy Audrey

Last couple days Audrey and I have been going out by the reef bottom fishing for snapper, grouper and many other species. The fishing was just so so with the bait we were using until we caught a sand fish. This thing looks like a short eel. I remember some time ago that Gogie or Hank mentioned that they were good bait. We kept it and  cut it up in  pieces. It only took a  few seconds before we both had fish on. That stuff really worked great.

Caught a big mutton today and I had Audrey take my picture with it. I told her be sure not to put her finger over the lens. Well quess what? When I went to load it there was just a big blurry finger. No big deal. She is great to go fishing with. Hell she cuts bait, takes fish off the hook, cleans all the fish, hauls up the anchor when we move. As a seafaring person, she really knows the ropes. I won’t say her age but she is in better shape than some in their 30’s that I know.

So anyway we have lots of fillets for our  fish fry Sunday or Monday when Hank’s is closed.  Jim, Sandy and Art will be here by then also.

My time here is getting extremely short. It’s hard to believe how fast the past few months have gone.


  1. Al,
    As your time comes to a close down there I can’t speak for anyone else but I really appreciate the updates and pics you have posted over the last few months. Made the winter up here just a little more bearable and Erik a little less cranky.. See ya in August as the Wookie’s head west to invade MT! Greg

  2. Greg,

    Glad you enjoyed the reports and pics. It’s actually kinda fun doing it.
    And anything to keep Erik less cranky. Is he related to Hank??????

    • Having witnessed first hand Hank calling back to Small Hope one evening when no one returned the call the first time. He mentioned to the other person on the line that he would take a certain object and place it inside a person via a route and style that was meant to reinforce to that person that Hank wanted to be called back. Hank and Erik are NOT related…..
