A Great Day Fishing!

I have been a Covid shut-in for most of the last two years.  It hasn't been all about fear and paranoia - I've lost three people to this cruel virus.  I have noticed feelings of depression and anxiety due to this pandemic.  A neighbor talked me into getting out and doing a little fishing yesterday.  An amazing day on the water.  Mostly a catch and release outing.  I did keep a few Whiting that I'll eat this evening.  Beyond that, we caught no fewer than five Red Fish the size of this one (that I appear to be playing Fish Guitar with).  Several fairly large sharks - a Black Tip and several as-big-as-they-get Bonnet Heads.  I've got to say that my soul feels better for having gotten out there.  

Peace and Love, y'all.

@steadyhorse I just hope you didn't catch Covid!

BTW - very nice catch!   I can't tell - looks like a King Mackerel or a Tuna?  Regardless - nice fish!  Were you in a boat or did you catch this from shore?

 

(2nd edit) - upon closer inspection - looks like a Bluefish?

Glad you got out and did some fishing. Yes Covid is the biggest downer this world has seen in decades. I too have lost friends to Covid. And my doctor also died from Covid. 

I've been jabbed three times, got a booster just two weeks ago. 

Another friend has two vaccinations 14 days apart yet still almost died in the hospital on a respirator. Home now but still on oxygen.

@robertdee That's a great Elvin record!  I got to chat with him for a bit several years ago.  Super nice guy!

I got my Pfizer boost just last Friday.  Don't know if it's cycle-mological or what, but it certainly boosted my social confidences!

Elvin's is a great song as is Taj Mahal's "Fishin' Blues."
