Geoff was so excited to pick up a cheap fishing pole and mini tackle kit at the local grocery store....about six months ago. After sitting around and collecting dust, we finally pulled the rod out of it's packet and broke it in. The "Molasses Pier" in St. Croix has a docking space for cable vessels, molasses and aggregate vessels. There is also a roll on/roll off ramp but the main purpose of the pier is to support the tanker vessels that import molasses to the V.I. Rum Industry. Needless to say, there are some pretty fat, healthy fish swimming around here!
Well, the only thing that our $20 fishing pole earned us was a sprained wrist and filthy Alpie - but up until then it was fun! We wont let our first experience get the better of us.. but we may just stay away from the algae covered rocks for now.
