I'm afraid I have to disappoint you with only words and no photo's (my bad, forgot the camera) but I caught my first snapper this morning! I am so excited! I have been out on the boat with the HG a few times and never caught much so I was thrilled to catch one today. We had only been out on the water and anchored up for about 30 minutes before I caught my very first one (and reeled it in all by myself!) but before I had a chance to celebrate I had put my line back down and immediately felt the tug . . . reeling up three of the suckers at once! Within an hour we had our limit and I had caught 13 of the 20. I think this baby is a lucky charm, clearly it is going to take after it's daddy in the fishing department cos mummy has never been much good at this fishing stuff . . . until now! And not even a teeny bit of nausea. SUCCESS! A wonderful start to 2011, succeeding at something new and spending some quality time with the HG. He has now gone off to dive for some crayfish and I plan to spend the rest of the day laxed out on the couch after my 4.30am wake up call.

Happy 2011 everyone! May you all be truly blessed.


  1. Oh I so wish I was somewhere warm enough to fish right now. What a great way to ring in the new year!

  2. Jealous! We really wanted to have a boat by this summer but we built a house instead lol. Today would be the perfect day to be out on the water though its sooooo hot up here already

  3. I'm so glad I found your blog. I reached the 27 year old mark this last July. My husband and I have been together for 9.5 years, and been married for the last four of them. For the last four years, we've been getting our financial ducks in a row to be able to support a child. We read that it often takes 4 to 6 months to conceive, and 6 months just arrived. I'm already depressed. It was so nice to come across a blog of someone who tried and finally succeeded. I really needed the uplifting today. :)

  4. Nice job on fishing and you should be able to eat them Snapper is yummy.

    I went fishing this past weekend too off the coast of Florida. We caught a red fish and baby flounder. Now flounder is a very funky looking fish.

  5. Awesome way to start the new year! May there be many more wonderful celebrations headed your way :)
