    7 days in Mazatlan

    The trip took place from April 18 to April 26, 2015. We had 7 days in total and we spent most of our waking hours fishing and eating. At the beginning of the trip, I spent a few evenings grading Grade 10 Science ISU's. It was exhausting to say the least to mark assignments after a whole day of fishing. But even through that, I caught 33 new species in the 7 days...with many missed opportunities and heartbreaks. I will return to Mexico as soon as possible...this was just the first blood drawn...

    As usual, these are the links to my blog posts.

    wow, looks like a fantastic trip! I always feel like I am learning more about fish when you make a post. There were a few species in there that I have caught and didn't know their proper names - thanks!
