Hubby's Haul

Oh, he had a grand time!  The other person that signed up to go out didn't show up, so that left Hubby and 3 other men to waite on him hand & foot! (bait the hook, take the fish off the hook...)

All of the men caught their limit, but in particular, hubby caught 8 sea bass, 2 ling cods, 2 rock fish, and a 50-60 lb. halibut that he had to release because halibut season ended a few weeks prior.

That was as far out of the water as he was allowed to take him.
The guys emptied their crab pots at sea as well, brought in 40 crabs & probably let another 40 go. We brought home 17!
As they pulled the crabs out of the cooking pot, the owner says, "Ever tasted a crab right out of the pot? You won't believe how good they are!" Well, I guess I couldn't believe it because we ate three right there! Awesome!
Our freezer is so full of fish & crab that we had to go around the RV park to find people to give some away to. Our next door neighbors took a few & the next day she brought us these.


  1. I had no idea what a Halibut looked like. To me it's just a fish oil from my childhood. Hmm. Didn't Hubby do well by the way? (I always feel a bit silly putting ?s after a rhetorical question but it was drilled into I do.

  2. Oh my goodness! This is wonderful, girlfriend. Fresh fish and the fun of catching it, he must have been beaming upon return from that outing. Sweet that your friend brought flowers, so sweet.

  3. Oh, I wish I was your neighbor!!!!
