This is Kuwata's house, sucka!

Steve and I went up to Kuwata's place to fish out on the lake he lives by. It was ridiculous, it was like a fishing show. Together we probably caught about 35-40 bass ranging from the very small to the very large. Caught a couple pickerel, and even the sunnies were like piranas today, getting caught on lures almost as big as them. Overall it was a great time. The weather held up until we left, the fishing was fast and furious, and I got to hang out with the guys outside of work. After a summer of salt water fishing doing some fresh water was a nice switch.

BAM! I started off drawing first blood!

But Steve had to show me up with a MONSTER BASS! 

Caught me a couple little brothers of Steve's fish.

Kuwata caught a bunch of fish too, but every time I tried to snap a pic the fish was already back in the water. The dude is too fast!

Could have used him as bait.

Obviously this fish I caught is much bigger than the one Steve caught. Just compare their sizes. (Kuwata included in image as scale reference ;-) )
All fish caught were released and swam off to be caught by his kids at a later date.

And someone asked me what types of lures I use when I go salt water fishing. This is my current arsenal. I really only use like five of these. But aren't they pretty?


These are a couple of pics from last week when I went out fishing with Steve and Kuwata at the reef in CT. Got there EARLY, 4am!! Saw the sun rise but did not see any fish. On the walk back saw this crazy jelly fish. I thought these guys only lived in the tropics.

Here's a video of the jelly fish:

the jungle

Jane is rearranging the apartment and it was time to move the vine I've been growing over the last three years. Take a look at the size of the pot in relation to the amount of vine material. Crazy! The vines were getting so long it was making the plant unhealthy, so, I'll be chopping it up into bits this week and starting a new.
