Re: Who does a lot of fishing from or near their boat?

My wife and I could catch a fish anchored off Key west as soon as we decided we wanted fish for dinner. At that time we could build a fire on christmas tree island. She would put wonder bread on hot hook's with a yo yo, and catch three or four pin fin fish as soon as it hit the water. She would run a bigger hook from a different yo yo and catch a little bonnet head or black tip in the time I could paddle to the island and build a fire. Cut steaks wrap in tin foil and through on the fire. Later we started doing it on our little grill when fires where illegal on the island. I spearfish in the key's all the time. I swim the mangroves and shoot snapper, I have some spots for hog fish, and some lobster spots when in season. When we are sailing south of here, spear fishing is my pass time. it's what I do for my daily chore. Some countries only allow hawiian slings like the Bahamas. But ya, we fish.
