Here Fishy, Fishy!

Omid and I decided to try and get a sturgeon yesterday. It was the next to the last day of the season.
Look at that sky! We reached a high of 64* in Astoria (with very windy conditions/swells) - while at home it was almost 90*. If that isn't love (on my part) I don't know what is! Those who know me well know I dislike being cold!

Measuring once, twice....

.... three times!

Finally a keeper! 41" exactly!

At the fish cleaning station.

Fish cleaners.
We opted to come here and have the sturgeon cleaned for us. It beats keeping the guts in the garbage can all week. Smelly garbage cans = raccoons. Something we don't want!

On our way home, we stopped to purchase some tuna. We had to wait for 30 minutes while it was being cleaned. We stopped at a cafe and had a bowl of fries. This bowl was so huge, we couldn't finish it. It was only $4 too. What a bargain!

Look who was happy to see us when we came home.
I love that smile! :)

Omid was nice and let me pull in the sturgeon. It was hard work!
