Fishing Noir

I didn't actually take this photo. The manager of the condo complex where we stayed on Anna Maria snapped it with her phone late one afternoon on the beach and posted it on their Facebook page. It kind of looks like Craig is either the chosen one, or ready to be beamed up to the mother ship.

Craig's love for fishing was reawakened on the Florida trip. He spent a lot of early mornings and evenings waist deep in the Gulf with his fishing rod. Early one morning when he was reeling in a small jack, the BIG one suddenly hit his line. He's not sure what it was, but it was bigger than him. Another guy from the condo complex who fished every morning told Craig he used the jacks he was catching for shark bait. With that in mind, Craig quickly backed out of the water!


Craig will have to try his hand fishing Playa Media Luna with the locals early in the morning. He can fish -- I can hunt seaglass!

33 more days!

Great shot no matter who took it!

Fishing in waist-deep water at night reminds me of the opening scene in 'Jaws'. He is aware that most attacks on the coast occur in 3 feet of water?

You are going back to Isla? Oh I'm so envious. I was there in May. Hoping to go back in February. My girlfriend at work that I took with me on my last trip just came and brought me a beautiful charm for a necklace that she made from Isla seaglass that we picked up near Media Luna. Guess I'll just have to live thru your posts until I can get back. If you go to my blog, you'll see some familiar sights if you scroll back to May! Come on over.

Ann, I thought it was fairly impressive for a phone shot!

A.J., the photo's deceptive because it was late afternoon an hour or more before sunset. And I will pass that fact along to him! After the shark attack off the northern end of the island while we were there, I was freaked about swimming, but the shark attack occurred with a group who were spear fishing off a boat in deeper water.

Gloria, our son works in this area in November/December, so we have a dogsitter and can finally return to Isla for a month. (Craig recently retired last March.) Hope you get back to Isla soon! I'm going to check out your blog!

Hey Star Gal! Love the title and header on your blog! Those Isla photos are great! One of these days, I'm going to try Don Chepo's (at least I think that's where you're sitting). In all these years, I've never eaten there!

So how was the mother ship?

drgeo, after they did the medical testing, they inoculated him with an amnesia drug so he can't remember. HA!
