This week we went "torching" up on the North Shore with some friends from our church.
You have to go when the tide is low so you can walk out far enough.
You shine your lights into the water to attract fish.
And you use nets to catch them.
We caught a puffer fish, but I didn't get a good shot of him either. The reflection makes him difficult to see.
We put him in a bucket and he actually jumped out of it.
There was also a nifty little cave that is exposed when the tide is low. All the teens climbed into it and came out somewhere on top of the hill.
We released all the fish when we were done. I wonder what the fish think of this whole ordeal? Do they go back and tell their friends and neighbors that there was a bright light shining on them from nowhere, and suddenly they were snatched into another world where they were examined by aliens and then put back in their own world?
I wonder if fish have their own National Enquirer?
