During the first week of April I traveled to St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands searching for a place to live. While there I spent most of my time aboard Catch 22 dolphin fishing. Captain Ryan Dipasquale navigated the beautiful blue Caribbean Sea in search of birds on the hunt for bait fish forced to the surface by the dolphin beneath while I waiting on deck to capture the action. Mark was the mate aboard pulling the fish onto the boat.
