Deep Sea Fishing
Yesterday I went deep sea fishing for the first time. It was a beautiful, calm, sunny morning. The ride out on the small boat was smooth and relaxing. Then we stopped to fish some mackerel to use as bait for the cod we would fish when we went deeper. I caught two mackerel. Then I began fishing for cod. I did not catch any though, as soon after the rocking of the boat became too much for me, and I was very seasick. I spent the rest of the three four experience huddled on the bench on the deck, trying to fixate my eyes on one point on the horizon, when I wasn't leaning into a bag. It would have been a nice experience if I had a stronger stomach. But I don't think I will be doing it again anytime soon.
