Default Water: The lazy hazy days of winter

Taken one winter in the bay near my home on Oahu. The setting sun offers a perfect backdrop to a favorite pastime here, fishing but no fish to catch.

Somehow I can't stop chuckling about your winter scene, selvin!

Very pretty and peaceful.

Is the shoreline basically fished out? And/Or too polluted from boats or something? I grew up fishing on the east coast. Years ago I was told that hardly anyone fishes there anymore. Not sure how true that is.

Mike, shorelines in the highly populated areas are overfished. Some pollution and non-native seaweed issues but overfishing is the primary reason.
Thanks for your comments

Great photo. I sometimes wish for a winter like that here in eastern Canada.
