Catch whalers

• Catch whalers

I've already talked about what they do whalers day: patch the network communicate with each other, repair boat, look out for the whales in the sea, carved decorative boat, sleep or thumps. But the interesting thing is still going on at sunset, when the whalers leave for fish, and at dawn, when they return with their catch. Therefore, each time sinking or rising sun, I tried to be on the beach to see them or meet. During these attacks I was able to learn a lot about the whalers. Today I will tell about it.

Here is the deserted beach Lamalery when whalers at sea.

They see waves that are cyclical.

When it comes to "desired wave", they let the boat on the water, jumping into it on the go.

have to act very quickly, so as not to miss the moment.

If you miss the moment, the wave could turn the boat or even sink it. The boats used to get to the fishing boats that reside in the sea.

The old - honored whalers like Ignasiasa - remain on the shore, while their children continue their business.

Never have I seen to fishermen returned without a catch (there was a time, but has yet to talk about it).

Each boat has always been a tuna.

In addition to tuna were, of course, other instances such as this shark's.

But the most vivid impression left swordfish ...

As in the joke: "I caught a fish in-the-by with the eye!"

All the fish (except tuna) butchered right on the beach. The title of this I do not know (some argue that it is mahi-mahi).

I did not see that someone cheated. Fishermen Lamalery live as one big family.

Catch whalers

About elderly. When I came the first time to meet the fishermen with their catch on the beach it was still dark. It seemed to me that I was the only one there. Then out of nowhere appeared Ignasias. It turned out that he just got out of his whaling boat, which slept! The old man does not sleep at home. He complains that there is hot and a lot of mosquitoes. But on the beach in the boat fresh and cool. Therefore, every night he spends here. Ignasias pictured with his grandson (or granddaughter).

What can I say about this? Such is the life of these people that feed the sea.

Catch whalers

They did not care whether there will still sea devils or whales, when they grow up their children.

Catch whalers

They - the poor fishermen, who can not be sure that they will tomorrow - catch or an empty stomach.

And the house (as corny as it may sound), they are always waiting for his wife and children ...
