Wrong tide, wrong wind but I wanted some mackerel for my smoker so I’m whipping a little silver dude into the wind and a helium ballon floats by. There is a swirl behind it so I cast behind it and sure enough a small striped bass too dumb to know better is trying to eat the streamer. I reel her in and put her back in the water and chased down the balloon that went up on the rocks a hundred yards downwind.
So this is my public service announcement. We don’t have to ban these things, just don’t buy them.
If you impulse buy one in the Market Basket checkout because you forgot your daughter’s birthday, stop. You are a bad dad. Don’t make it worse. Buy a box of oreos instead.
