"Good day. How are you? Is everything good for you? Would you like to buy a tuna I just caught? And do you have any interest in going fishing tomorrow morning? I am going out fishing and I wanted to see if you wanted to go and learn how we fish."
|Birds fishing is a good sign of fish for the rest of us|
That is what local fisherman Dave said when he stopped by our boat in Pirates Bay. "Sure" said Tom. FYI - The invite was for Tom alone. We have seen NO women fishing. NONE! But that is ok. It would give me chance to chill on the boat by myself. Dave said he would pick Tom up the next morning at our boat at 6:30AM. He asked only that Tom pay for the gas. Ok. Oh yeah....he needed the money now. Hum? Tom said "Half now, the other half tomorrow." "No, that won't work. De gas station only open today so I must have all the money today to get the gas." Hum? "Don't worry. I won't cheat you. I will pick you up tomorrow as I say." Okay. "As you can see my boat is called Neva 2 Late - big letters. Everybody know me. I won't cheat you. I will show up."

6:20 AM "Hello? Good morning. I here to take you fishing" Dave called out. Sure enough, there he was bright and early. Tom grabbed sunscreen, a hat, water and the brownies and headed off in Neva 2 Late with Dave.
|Success - YES!|
|Perfect for two people. In fact we got 2 meals out of this one|
|Cleaning the tuna for dinner|
Three hours later they were back with one tuna. Such is fishing. But at 2 1/2 lbs it was just perfect for the two of us for dinner. Tom cleaned it up and that evening we tossed it on the grill. YUM!
