Deep Sea Fishing Is Significantly Better Than Pier Fishing

You have probably gone on a fishing trip to a pier, but have you ever gotten on a boat miles from the shore and fished? The experience is completely different and way better than pier fishing.

My dad and I went to Sandestin, Florida at last weekend on a fishing trip. Our plan was to stay there for two days. The first day we went fishing on the famous Okaloosa Fishing Pier to do pier fishing, and on the second day, we decided to go on a deep sea fishing trip.

Now while we were pier fishing, there was little to no action. A fish would bite our bait like once every 30 minutes or so. So the bulk of our pier fishing experience was very boring and required lots and lots of patience. Now 30 minutes may not sound like a lot, but when you are out on a pier without your phone and you are just staring at the ocean, 30 minutes can feel like days. But once you do get a fish bite, it is worth the wait, since reeling a fish in is just super exciting. During the 3 hours, we were on the pier, we caught about 7 fish. The problem was the fish were mostly too small for us, so we gave them away to people on the pier since some of them use small fish as bait to catch big fish.

The next day, we woke up at 5 in the morning to get to the boat for our deep fishing trip on time. I was very tired but I was excited for what was in store for us for the day. I have never been on a deep sea fishing trip before in my life, so I was ready to embark on this journey. We got on the boat and rode out into the ocean for like a good hour, and we got to our first stop. Now the bait bucket they gave us include cut up squid and fish, so blood was all over the bucket, and we needed to get our hands dirty to catch some fish.

Believe me when I say this but once you attach your bait to the hooks and toss your line into the water, a fish will instantly bite your hook. I was surprised I did not need to wait for a fish to bite my bait, and I would reel my line back in and catch fish so quickly. And I have to say it was the most fun I have had fishing because the fish would continually bite. And after some time, the boat would move to the next stop for us to fish again, and we would catch all these big fish with almost no wait.

By the end of the trip, my dad and I caught almost 20 fish, which was the most fish we have ever caught on a fishing trip. I would most definitely go on a deep sea fishing trip again since it is so exhilarating with the amount of fish you can catch. One thing I recommend is that you take seasick medicine. My dad and I made sure we took some, and we both did not feel a single bit of nausea throughout the trip. I feel that deep sea fishing requires way more involvement than pier fishing, which is why I feel that deep sea fishing is significantly better than pier fishing.

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.


By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101


    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
