    I fished MB this morning and only caught 2 fish. But one was a new species and I am happy with that any day. I got the measuring sticker for my skateboard. It's 23" from truck to truck but that's all I need. This Midshipmen bit three times before I caught it. I got a nibble the first time, my bait got pulled down the second time, the third time the hook stuck.

    Weird looking fish. Almost looks like a catfish.
    Also short bass.

    I lost a couple of good sized fish today but that is ok because I'll catch them later when they are bigger.

    Cool! Everytime I see a midshipman all I can think of is the giant bioluminescent fish from Star Wars/

    I saw my first midshipmen today. I wish I could say it was because I caught one, but that wasn't the case. I just happened to see a dead or dying one float by me belly up. A bunch of people were up current from me fishing. One of them apparently needs to learn how to handle a fish.

    Why risk being the guinea pig when you can prepare the dish and make a long overdue visit to family members(strained relations of course) and offer them a heartfelt gift to make things better. Whatever happens, it can only benefit you ;)

    Man that belly shot looks like a kaiju from one of my favorite movies, Pacific Rim
