OK so we are in Long Island Sound at Point Judith RI. Most of the time it has been work and busy doing things. After we got the engine started we kicked back and relaxed some.
First we took my reel, thanks Emmett, and got string put on it and got a rod for it. Then we talked to the people at the bait shop on what would be needed to fish and what the rules were. They were very helpful and put together some hooks and a couple of lures for me.
Now they have a rig called a Sabaki rig that has 3 to 8 hooks on it with a little material on each that is made to look like little shrimp.
These are the little hooks, there are three of them on this line.
You use that to catch your bait with. The bait you catch are just a little bigger than a minnow. Then you hook that onto your bigger rig to catch bigger fish. Remember the cartoon with the little fish then a bigger fish then the big fish. I guess that would be the best explanation.
Anyway all I had to do was go onto the internet and order a free “cause I’m old” fishing license that covers everything from Maine to New Jersey. Finally something I don’t have to buy for each state.
Next we’ll see if I can catch some BIGGER fish. I’ll have a report a little later on how we do.
At about 2 PM Sunday afternoon they had a paddle race that went right by the boat. The people would wave and say hi to us while we sat up on Adventure and took some pictures. There were over 200 entrants and it took over 1 1/2 hours for them to pass. So not a lot of comments but a bunch of pictures. It was a lot of fun.
A whole lot of other racers. I believe it was a “RACE” and scavenger hunt. But they were paddling against a 3 knot tide. They were working hard but having fun.
There were a lot of them and they were a lot of fun. So we had a great time Sunday afternoon.
Thanks to all our followers we still love to hear from you!
