Today was much better than yesterday. This morning the OFM body made the rest of me get up early and go fishing at the harbor pier. As the Truck was getting situated in the parking lot, the Teams noticed a boat anchored near the end of the fishing pier.When the Fishing Team made it to the end of the pier, we could see that the boat was a dive boat. The air compressor was running and the deck hand was controlling the air line for the diver in the water.
After a few minutes looking, my eyes were able to detect where the air bubbles were surfacing. The diver was working a grid layout and moving pretty fast in my opinion. In the choppy water it was sometimes difficult to tell exactly where the bubbles were located. Here is one of the better bubble bursts at the surface.
The silver spoon on the end of my fishing line was catching foot long ladyfish while my eyes were watching the boat and diver. After about a dozen ladyfish were caught, it was obvious the diver was heading for the boat. A long yellow device was brought aboard first. Then the diver climbed up the ladder and onto the boat. After the deck hand removed some of the divers gear, the diver sat down to rest.
A Rockport Fire and Rescue fellow came walking out on the pier just before the diver came out of the water. He was wondering what was going on too. This particular area is not used for boats normally and is pretty much a smooth bottom with no real obstructions. Eventually it will come to light as to what this activity was all about.Having something curious to watch while you are catching fish makes it a lot easier to try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
