Surrounded by a Dolphin Pod
My last fishing trip to Laiya for a while was yesterday. We trolled most of the day and I tried one of the new lures I got.
We had a slow day till around 10:30, when a big dorado took the lure pictured above. Unfortunately I was not able to get a good hook set and when the dolphin leaped then landed in the water the lure came loose. 😦 Oh well. Point proven that these lures work as a substitute for fresh squid. (Mang Roger was impressed 🙂
Later in the afternoon we trolled some more and as we near one of the buoys way out, we were surrounded by a pod of dolphins. It was fun watching them swim around us, jump, and flip.
(I tried to post a video, but it doesnt seem to be working)
We had a fun day on the water even though we weren’t able to bring home any fish. Goodbye Laiya (for now) and hello Cebu 🙂
