Celtic Quest Weakfish

Luke and I got up at 530am to go fishing.  Its always exciting to get out on the water.  After a long haul heading west, we jigged for two minutes, and the captain said we have to make a move.

Luke is already frustrated from a 45 minute ride, and after nearly an hour and 40 minutes, we end up at Northport bay.   A few birds working, and we get to do some fishing.

This day in history "On July 5, 1946, French designer Louis Reard unveils a daring two-piece swimsuit at the Piscine Molitor, a popular swimming pool in Paris. Parisian showgirl Micheline Bernardini modeled the new fashion, which Reard dubbed "bikini," inspired by a news-making U.S. atomic test that took place off the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean earlier that week.
European women first began wearing two-piece bathing suits that consisted of a halter top and shorts in the 1930s, but only a sliver of the midriff was revealed and the navel was vigilantly covered. In the United States, the modest two-piece made its appearance during World War II, when wartime rationing of fabric saw the removal of the skirt panel and other superfluous material. Meanwhile, in Europe, fortified coastlines and Allied invasions curtailed beach life during the war, and swimsuit development, like everything else non-military, came to a standstill."

Such a hot day, no doubt there had to be a lot of bikini at the beach.

Luke and I fish hard, and we each start picking up small bluefish.  Then a few weakfish are caught by others.  It doesn't take long for Luke and I to slow the retrieve and hook up with some weakfish ourselves.

At the end of the day, Luke and I have 16 bluefish, and 3 weakfish.  We give one of the weakfish to another fisherman on the boat as the limit is one.

Luke's first weakfish.  My first weakfish in a long time.

After fishing, we stop for some steamers at the Steam Room.

I take an afternoon siesta.  After some fresh fish for dinner, I take a 5 mile run.

Relaxing on the couch.  A nice day of summer vacation.
