    I think “sharkey” is in for a name change to “crocey” as he is croced next to the boat,,,, then just takes it in his stride by rolling around laughing.

    Fish has another small run, enough to ensure its out of site again. At that point, it shakes its head and the hook comes out. Bitter dissapointment again.
