Slow Day on the Dania Pier

This trip to the Dania Pier was a rather slow one. My grandfather, brother, and I started off by heading to Angler’s Bait and Tackle, where we bought pretty big shrimp for bait. When we first got to the pier, we realized that it was very windy, and that not much was caught by anyone else on the pier. I did catch a fish after a while, but it was a Scrawled Cowfish.  A fish is a fish, and we were on the board. After about another 45 minutes, we reeled in a Redtail Parrotfish on a size 2 circle hook. We did not catch anything but those two fish for the first two hours. Just as we were preparing to leave, we decided to fish at the end of the pier because we saw that some fish were being caught there. We dropped the shrimp and instantly felt hard bites. 2 fish were caught there. We both caught a Lane Snapper and Jacob, my brother, caught a Doctorfish, which is a type of tang. We left on the day with 4 fish, 3 of which I got credit for and 3 of which Jacob got credit for. Overall, a pretty slow day for fishing, and the wind didn’t help. But, in the end, we did end up with a few fish brought onto the deck.
