First Session in Micronesia

First Session in Micronesia

Howdy All,
Went for my first fish yesterday since moving to Pohnpei Micronesia last week. The weather has been pretty ordinary for paradise but we picked a reasonable day and took the boat out. Caught a dozen or so small skipjack tuna, a little mahi mahi, a wahoo, a rainbow runner and 30ish kg shark. Shark took a little skirt designed for the skipjacks in 400+m of water. Not a bad start to my three year fishing adventure. Even wore the fishwrecked shirt for the first day out.
