deep sea fishing

I love deep sea fishing off Prince Edward Island. You mostly get mackerel, which I have acquired a taste for thanks to the secret ingredient (butter, lots of butter). I let the boat crew deal with baiting the hook, and removing the catch, oh yes, and filleting. But I like the fishing. With my extended family it's kind of a tradition. We try to get as many people together as possible to head out on a charter from Covehead Harbour. 

Here's a shot I took of my parents when we went fishing in 2009. It's a happy memory. We catch small fish and we eat them that night for dinner. Even though we've been doing this for years, we are total amateurs compared to some. Which leads me to this astounding You Tube find. Check out what happens at the very end of this video. I love it.
