Fishing Trip

The Rusty Hook Fishing Club went on a fishing trip. We had to wake up at 5:45 in the morning. The drive from our house in Sag Harbor to the the boat located in Hampton bays took about half an hour. We boarded the Shinnecock Star (our boat) at 7:00. The Shinnecock Star disembarked at 7:35. We were all very excited for the trip. On the the trip, my Dad caught 3 Fluke and a Robin Fish, Mom caught a Robin Fish, And my brother caught 3 Fluke and 2 Robin Fish. I caught a Fluke and 3 Robin Fish. A kid on the boat caught the fish of the day, a 7 pound Fluke. An old man named George almost beat the kid with his Fluke. Georg’s fluke was only a pound off.

Sagg Main Swamped

Red flag – no swimming.image 

Hurricane Hermine has gotten the Atlantic all riled up, causing pretty huge waves to smash up on shore. Red flags will be flying above many Atlantic beaches for the next few days as the hurricane progresses. Today I visited Sagg Main beach with my family in Saggaponic, New York. As we neared the beach, we could see a red flag flying over the parking lot. This we expected since there was a hurricane taking place some miles off the coast. Surprisingly, it was mostly sunny when we arrived. When we had finally parked and made our way on foot to the beach, the waves appeared to have much more power and force than usual. The Atlantic was showing off its potential  and capability, and most of the people were respecting that by not even getting close to the waves. There were a few dare Devils that were joking around by the surf, but one of them learned a valuable lesson when she was nearly dragged out by the current.

On the beach, kids were playing around in a big saltwater pond that had been formed by the waves. Others were sitting behind the pond admiring the waves as they smashed on shore and at sea. Lifeguards were busy patrolling the area to make sure no one was sucked up by the strength of the ocean.
