Adventures in Connecticut

IMG_3291He didn’t like this picture, so blurred his face, hihi

Last week I decided to take a few days off from work and visit my good friend B oppa ( long time readers will remember our past adventures shenanigans ) in Connecticut. I didn’t go there for tourism, I really needed to take a break from everything and relax so we spent a lot of time resting, hanging out with friends and eating good food.

B has recently discovered his love for fishing so we decided to go Deep Sea fishing in Groton (can my French friends stop a moment here and admire how hilarious that town’s name is??) . I used to go fishing with my father as a kid but I was quite nervous since everyone on the boat seemed to really know what they were doing… plus I was the only girl on board and I felt like I was invading a secret men society or something. The word got around on the boat that I was from Canada so a lot of fishermen were very helpful to me. :)

After a while, I got the hang of it and finally caught something!! I was so exited but my left hand is still quite painful so I wasn’t strong enough to reel it up so I switched rods with B so he could reel it up for me. As he was reeling my fish, his rod caught something too! So technically, I caught 2 fishes!

After those two catches, my arm was quite painful so I didn’t spend much time fishing afterwards. I was quite happy with catching 2 blue bass but B had really set his mind on catching a stripped bass so that we could eat it as sashimi, and after a few hours, he finally caught one!

Letting the pro handle the dead fish… I don’t really like the chopping/blood part

In total, he caught together 8 fishes! B gave most of them to a friend who owns a Japanaese restaurant but he kept the stripper for dinner. He sliced it up and prepared more yummy food, invited a few friends and we had a delicious feast!

This sashimi can’t get any fresher!

Now, I really want to go fishing again… as soon as my hand is better, I’ll be reeling fishies out of the sea like a pro too!



  1. omg that sashimi looks amazing O.O though I'm slightly creeped out because I can still see the outline of the fish lol. That's so cool!
