Fishing in Cape Cod Bay

I don't usually wake up at 4:00 am for fun, but yesterday I did. And here it's one of the reasons why it was worthwhile: the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean.

I spent the day fishing with some friends in Cape Cod Bay.

This was the first fish I have ever caught at the ocean. It wasn't big enough and we had to put it back in the ocean, after measuring it.

But this 25 pound striper made the day! I had to struggle with it, man, and I felt for a while like "The old man and the sea" (by Hemingway).
Today, I'm really looking forward to having dinner...
