We woke up at 5:30 in the morning on the day of our fishing trip, departing from Sonora Resort. The day before was action-packed for my sister and I so we were looking forward to getting out on the ocean for 4 hours of fishing (which translates to 4 hours of talking, hanging out, and eating snacks).
Our guide for the day was Kaitlyn, a knowledgeable fishing wonder woman who helped us learn the basics. Out on the water, us three girls had a great time as the sun rose, the fog lifted, and other boats (filled with testosterone) passed on by.
My sister had a great big fish on her line, which we referred to as “the one that got away” for the rest of the trip since the line snapped on us. We were a bit quicker to the next bite although when I reeled it in we had to release it since it was a wild Coho Salmon.
Despite only having a few nibbles, we did see some great action out on the water. The boat was lovely, our guide was great (and also went to school in Surrey – go figure) and we had some great fishing trip “bonding moments” to boot. I also enjoyed taking photos of the scenery, of which I’ll never tire.
