Hi Karen I saw your photos also in Facebook,but here they look so much better! I love the splash the net makes on the water! Is the fisherman standing on a surfboard? LIKE

Hi Eva. I think FB dulls them down terribly. The fisherman, by the way, is standing on the bottom of the river (actually a lagoon). It is pretty shallow even way out. But he is close to shore. I am standing right at water's edge taking this pic.

It looks as if you´d be in the water! .. Did he fish anything?

Karen Raley on May 10, 2012

Hi again, Eva, they go out at dawn and sunrise to throw their castnets. Then they use the small fish they net as bait and go fishing for the bigger fish immediately after that. Sometimes they fish in the Indian River lagoon (which is in this pic) or sometimes they drive over to the beach (5 minutes away) and fish in the Atlantic. I did not stay to see where he went to fish.
