I agreed to go fishing with a few guys I met at the hostel in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. Unfortunately, we were out super late the night before shotgunning beers and had to get up to board the boat at 9am. I was okay at first and fished for about 30 minutes until I started to crash.
I can handle boats for the most part, but there seems to a recurring theme of being hungover on them and that doesn’t go over well with my stomach. My hangovers usually consist of just being tired, but the minute I get on a boat, my tummy turns into a washing machine.
Touching sardines to put on my hook didn’t help much either, BARF.
In my Spanglish I explained to our guide that I was very hungover and he made me a lovely bed out of life jackets. I slept for the rest of the trip while my man bitches caught dinner.
They did pretty good, we ended the trip with a bag full of 16 fish (none caught by me). We carried them into town and had a local restaurant cook the fish for us. I love seafood, but I’m not a big fan of fish. This may change as the tuna and snapper these guys caught was AMAZING.
It was well worth my hangover nap on the boat.
Hogga you whore… ugh I’m jealous. That looks really good and as usual everything ended up working out.
Well played. They’ll think twice before asking you to do something after a night of drinking lol
Haha, they said I was the best fisher ever cause I slept the whole time and still got to eat fish
Great story hogga 🙂 Luckily you didn’t get sick. The fish looks amazing!!!
Yeah it was a close call
“…while my man bitches caught dinner.” haha YES
They took it to get cooked while I showered too!
Sounds like the perfect fishing trip to me!
It was quite rad!
Anything on a boat leaves soo early — I’ve had so many trips where I was so hungover/still drunk. Always fun! San Juan del Sur is boozy lol. Where you at Iguanas?!
UGH I know… same thing happened in Halong Bay and the Great Barrier Reef. Yes I was at Iguanas lol.
Oh how I love fresh fish, looks delicious.
yeah I was impressed by how much I liked it!
I have such good memories of San Juan del Sur!
Oh I can imagine! haha
Yeah that last picture certainly looked delicious and I’m sure it tasted even better. I’m glad you survived the hangover!
thanks! It was hard, but I managed
Ha ha ha … I like how you got your man bitches to do the work of getting dinner for you. 🙂
