The Catch Recap & Mom’s Birthday

Happy Birthday to the BEST MOM that I could ever have!!!!Ā 

Don’t ask how old she is, because she may only answer out to guilt. hehe! We’ve had a great weekend so far.

I mentioned that I went fishing on Saturday with family (mom included) and friends of the family. I would considered most of my family friends to just be family. I can cut out all the drama and get to the source.

4:30 a.m. came quick. I finally awoke to my alarm blaring for at least a few minutes. I thought I was dreaming about an alarm going off. It was real time. I managed to get dressed, brush my teeth, do my hair and fill up my water bottle. I cannot do much at 4:30 a.m. My motor skills don’t work that early. My voice and grammar doesn’t work either. However, my step dad has no problem with talking whenever where-ever. It was a struggle to keep up.

Once we were on the boat, we decided that it would be best to set the crab traps and then head to the fishing spot. Everyone agreed and it was time to prepare the crab bate and throw the traps.

After some time passed and the traps were set, it was time to boat to the “spot.” The spot is a designated area that our navigator has recently had success at. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the best luck.

No luck. No fish. No practice. Only little shakers. AKA mini salmon that aren’t worth it.

After nearly 6 hours of fishing/hanging out, we decided to call it a day and head back to out crab pots.

Up close and personal with the crabs.

We caught out limit, which made up for the lack of Salmon. No one was disappointed.

Lunch at Anthony’s was necessary after a hint and miss morning fishing/crabbing. Anthony’s never disappoints.

Following our late lunch, it was time to head back to the Eastside, change clothes, and head down to Salmon Days. Ironically, there was a whole lot of Salmon talk happening this weekend. No problem at all.

Post Salmon Days, meant it was time to cook those suckers (crabs).

It’s time to get weird.

XO, Tara
