TASK 7: Travel and Fishing - Exotic Species

TASK 7: Travel and Fishing - Exotic Species
I don?t travel much forfishing, hopefully this will start to change soon.  I have made most of the big purchase fishequipment, all except a boat from the procedes of my fishing t-shirt site. //www.cafepress.com/comtfishing I hope to put the money I earn from thesite this coming year towards fishing trips but with gas prices going up sofast it might be used for gas.  At a dollarprofit per shirt it takes a while to get funded. 

Let me explain what I meanby I don?t travel much, I do drive across most of the Rocky Mountains to fishbut I consider travel more exotic then that. Usually outside the United States or maybe a trip to Florida, Alaska, orHawaii travel mainly anytime I would be going for exotic species, stuff Icannot catch here in Colorado? trips to other states to catch those species I don?tconsider travel.  If that makes sense,lol.

With those standards I haveofficial travel fished once.  Puerta Vallarta,Mexico which was a great destination for a vacation.  From what I heard the fishing here could beamazing, so I set up a one day charter while the wife lounged around theresort.  The fishing was very slow on theday we went out, but that?s fishing.  Thewater was a little rough as well, making me kind of sea sick.  The slowness and sickness was broken up with afew fish, the dolphins alongside the boat, and the manta rays flying throughthe water.  While we didn?t get any bigtrophies I was able to add two new species to my list, a bonita and askipjack.  The deckhand made some amazingfresh fish tostadas out of one for everyone on the boat.  Travel fishing is about the experience, thistrip was filled with that both in the boat and out.  I encourage everyone to try to fish for newspecies and new places all the time, and remember it?s not just the fish we areafter.
