Fishing with Austen and Davis

Today I went fishing with two of my friends, Austen and Davis. We met up at Austen's house/dock. Davis started to use his net to catch a lot of little fish, shrimp, and crabs in the floating sargassum. Meanwhile, I was fixing up some fishing poles and put on some bait. We used hot dogs, which were stable and heavy enough to fish with. When we dropped the bait in the water, fish such as puffer fish, grunts, and a big blue striped snapper instantly came and nibbled the bait. We weren't really catching anything, but Austen and I had bites, but they got off. We figured out that the best spot was a certain place next to the boat. I went there, and not long after, I had the "blue striper" on my hook! I was reeling it in, and it touched the dock! I caught it! But as I was trying to bring it up, It's weight and strength bit the hook off. At least I caught it! That turned out to be the only fish caught with a pole that day, but Davis caught a whole bunch of shrimp, some crabs, and cool fish. I hope to fish with Austen and Davis again soon. Stay tuned!

These are some of the fish and other creatures caught with the net.
