Kiss Your Katch


    I caught my first fish, a small kelp sea bass, while on our mooring in front of Balboa Yacht Club's landing in White's Cove at Catalina Island on August 12, 2012. I was fishing with my children off the back of our boat, a Mainship Pilot 30 "Primo", using fresh squid as bait. True to his name, when I reeled in the line, there was a huge pile of kelp on the end with Mr. Fishy hidden in the middle. My children were in complete disbelief to see me kiss him on the lips!
