CA Goes Fishing

That was fun. And now we know a little about how it all works.

Brooke and Susan from Liquid Therapy showed us the basics of catching Croaker.

Brooke likes a 2 oz. weight, and two number 4 hooks. He suggests synthetic blood worms in resealable plastic pouches. If you have squid, you use blood worms on the bottom hook and squid on the top.

We had live bloodworms, instead of synthetic, so CA learned how to cut them and mush them up the hook.

She also learned how to handle the fish. How to extract the hook. How to save them in a bucket because we don't have ice.

Brooke showed her how to kill, descale and gut. When we were done, we had a nice snack-sized portion of Croaker. CA did the whole thing herself.
