Day 2 — Fishing The Tuichi River In Madidi National Park   Leave a comment

BoliviaAfter a couple of hours on the river, we beached the rafts to do some fishing using the Tacana fishing method.

Day 2 Fishing Time-2-72.jpgThis looks like a nice place to go ashore.

BoliviaThe fishing line is on a board that is unwound, then tossed out into the water. The bait are small fish.
The Tacana do not bother with poles.

BoliviaTom and Matt have their lines in the water.

BoliviaSo far, no one is having any luck catching fish.

Pedro demonstrated the indigenous technique of fishing.

BoliviaMatt did have some success on our Day 3.

“Have you ever been on a shrimp boat?” – Bubba
“No, but I’ve been on a real big boat.” – Forrest Gump

“Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There’s shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That, that’s about it.”

Fishing Off The Coast Of Puerto Peñasco   5 comments

We arrived in Puerto Peñasco Sunday afternoon, February 11th, planning on going fishing in the Sea of Cortez on Tuesday. However, because of a forecast of strong winds, the fishing trip was rescheduled for calm seas on Thursday afternoon.

I was able to catch some small sea bass after the second and third tries. Tom caught a couple, so we had plenty for dinner. Captain Chris also added to the total catch. Joy and Patty watched. Joy also took some of these photos.

Bass Boat Blues On The Bayou   Leave a comment

Bass Boat Blues

me and my bass boat
all alone on the bayou
moments to live by.

in bayou country
there are no mountains to climb
just tiny ant hills.

the fish are biting
only they are not keepers
ask me if I care.

for people who know
it is the process that counts
no more, no less — Yes!

green covers side streams
turtles on the backs jump in
breaking up the green.

mercy, mercy me
it is time to be truthful
I don’t care to fish.

I am the guy
carrying a camera
walking the park trails.

it’s time with nature
my breakfast at Tiffany’s
in the great outdoors.
