Sometimes the photos can speak for themselves….

Needless to say, local fishermen and women brave dangers to get out to where the fish are plentiful.

Snags are quite plentiful also.

All manner of boats go in pursuit.

 

Humans are not the only fishers out there . . .

Some have a minimal gear approach…

 

 

 

And what’s a nearby ULCV when there are fish to be had . . .

You should have seen the bunker I had on the line recently . . .

 

 

 

All photos, except the two of me by bowsprite as I was cranking in a silver landbass, WVD.

Unlike birds, which inhabit the atmosphere as we do, fish aren’t seen very clearly unless you pull them out of their medium.  Recently I enjoyed watching Gotham Fish Tales, on youtube, an hour and 15 well spent.

Is this a miniature replica of a tugboat posed beside a green wall?

Not really.  But besides ULCVs like Thalassa Pistis (sea of faith?), even 100′ x 40′ tugboats seem to shrink.

 

Enlarge this photo and you’ll see the folks here heading out to fish implausibly turn their backs to the huge ship not that far away.

She’s has capacity of just under 14,000 teu, 

although she appears to have fewer than that aboard.

The 106′ x 32′ Brendan Turecamo, like the other tugs, appears to be shrunk.

She arrived here from Savannah and Colon Panama before that;  as of dawn Saturday, she’s still in port here. 

All photos, WVD.
