Fishing in the Middle East

12 posts in this topic

Hey all,
Just thought i'd put a quick note in here. I got to take a few days of R&R out of Iraq to a little country on the east side of Saudi Arabia called Qatar. One of the trips off base there was a fishing trip into the Persian Gulf.

Basically it was just like a launch trip on Mille Lacs where ya have 20 people in a boat. We drift fished using a drop shot rig and chunks of squid for bait. We caught quite a few fish.... I even caught a saltwater catfish. Once i get my photos back I am gonna post the pics of the saltwater cat on here. Talk to y'all later and I can't wait to be coming back home

Cats off of Qatar! Cool! Maybe you can get some guideing trips going when this whole mess is done. smile.gif I suppose you caught some "weird" looking fish in the ocean? I always enjoyed ocean fishing, you never know what you're gonna get. One thing nice about the military, you see alot of different places. It's too bad the situation could'nt of been different. Take good care of yourself, and a speedy return!! smile.gif

Merry Christmas, Sarge.

Tonight my family & I watched two ecstatic children dig through about a cubic ton of wrapping paper looking for the gifts inside.
Tonight we over-ate and drank like people who don't have to be on their guard.
Tonight we watched each other eagerly to see if our gifts would be well-recieved.

I am able to do this tonight because you and others like you decided that this was worth protecting - no matter what.

Thanks, Jeremy.

Hey guys thanks a lot. I wish I could be home but we have a job to do here. Hopefully I'll get home soon for my 2 week leave so I can do a little bit of hardwater fishing in between family and girlfriend time. Merry Christmas and hope to be home soon

Drew,
No beer drinking here unless you count the NA stuff we have. I am going to a party at one of the aviation hangers here at Balad Airbase, Iraq. Have fun tonight and take some pictures for me.

Thanks so much for your service riverbasher! God bless and hope you're back and safe! The ocean fishin' sounds like a blast. I did it once in California. You never know what you're going to pull up.

Hey guys and gals. Thought I would give you an update since I haven't posted in here in a while. I sent the rolls of film home with my pics from over here and my mom sent the box today with the photo CD's in it so you guys can see my fishing trip I took in Qatar. Otherwise, 8 months down, 4 to go before I am back home safe. My team has moved down to Baghdad as we are starting to get replaced by the new signal units coming in country. I'll be home before ya know it so I can take some of y'all up on those fishing trips. Bye for now
