last weekend, i went fishing...on a boat. now, i know in alaska, it doesn't seem like that big of a deal because so many people do it. i fish a little, usually with my dad, and am fairly decent. i can aim and catch salmon once i get into my groove (which gets goofed up when i look over my shoulder and see a hungry bear). i digress...our friends have a boat and were nice enough to take us out. i was armed with a bland breakfast, bonine (drug for motion sickness), anti-nausea pressure point wristbands, saltine crackers, and ginger ale, determined that i would not "feed the fishes".

side note: the only time i can remember being on small boat in the ocean was when i was probably 4 or 5 years old in hawaii. i vividly remember feeling horribly seasick and have stayed away from boats ever since then.

so we went out and began trolling for salmon in drizzly weather. there were puffins floating around, which was pretty cool. they're so cute! fishing was slow (we only caught 3 salmon) but still a lot of fun. i caught one and bfff netted it for me. that was about the extent of what i did. i don't like whacking the fish. fog descended around us so we decided to pack it in for the day. the waves picked up a bit on the way back in, but overall, i felt pretty good. i considered it an extremely successful day since i didn't get sick! LOL!
