One of the fabulous things about living in Coronado is that you can hunt for a fresh meal in the ocean or the bay. I’m not sure if fishing is for everyone but I’m pretty sure there are lots of people out there that appreciate a good catch. This sport has always been a verrry leisurely sport to me and I always assumed that fishing is something that mellow people like to partake in. Please, correct me if I’m wrong, I really have no idea because the one time I attempted to fish I became so ill from seasickness that I spent the majority of the time down below, green with color and trying to sleep.
Despite missing out, it was exciting to see everyone's catches for the day. Ya know, the typical pictures where each person holds up their biggest fish like a trophy, concentrating very hard on not letting the fish slip through their hands. Yes, that was definitely entertaining!
While I enjoyed observing, I also had an inner struggle with feeling sorry for the wriggling fish. I would certainly not enjoy being taken against my will and least of all by a hook in my lip. But then I have to remind myself that fish do not have a central nervous systems so while they are gasping for air (...or wait, water?) the fish actually don’t feel pain. Okay fine, let’s eat him!
