Landfall

We’ve had a catastrophe aboard Discovery. Nothing broken, no one lost at sea, but still a disaster. We lost our best lure. Besides that we spaced getting proper swivels, so the remainder of our lures our useless – they just spin around endlessly until the fishing line is so screwed up (literally) that a fish couldn’t get it even if he wanted it. We have had a few flying fish hit the deck at night, so we’ll have to use one as bait if we’re to land any more fish. Gruesome tale, I know.
