A couple shells had broken while stringing them, but replacements were easy to find. In between crafting, I would take breaks to check my bait. I bet Martha Stewart never crafted and fished at the same time! We didn’t catch anything, although something kept stealing our bait (we suspect crabs). Despite our empty hooks, we had a great view of the bay and the most amazing cool breeze off the water–one that almost made me forget it was still summer.
