Took my girl out to the pier today and we managed to pick one up early (and then lose several later). Good to get one in the book for 2013.
There are pretty awesome animals.
The girl was especially happy to be able to collect a couple of copepods from the shark in a little container with rubbing alcohol. This is now on her nature table. Yes. My girl is awesome.
Also witnessed being caught today were two broadnose seven gills and a ray. Cool.
Funny thing was a couple of guys who started fishing by us. Five minutes after they get there one guy lands a small leopard shark. His buddy had brought him out to catch his first fish and he did. A neat thing to see.
Take a friend fishing.
