fishing for shirogisu (whiting) today. I am getting more used to the action on my new rod and the weather was much better today compared to last weekend. So much so that I am rather sunburnt (and yes, I did slip, slap and slop) and have the overall countenance of a boiled prawn. My nose, in particular, would outdo almost any alcoholic Bishop in its redness, and it’s times like this I wish I were a scientist like Tycho Brahe.
I was lucky enough to take an aji, so my brekkie tomorrow is sorted! As usual, I scaled the fish on board to save myself work at home, and so the fish don’t quite have the same lustre as the intact specimen would (shirogisu are actually a very beautiful fish).
