Fishing Trip

Bubba went on an off shore fishing trip, 35-50 miles off the coast...he caught 5 and lost 3....but somehow didn't bring any fish home. (He says they don't taste so good, I think he just didn't want to clean them) He swears he will never do this again. 6-8 foot waves and 10-12 foot swells....hmmm, thank goodness he doesn't get sea sick.
