Yu Gege is the fisherman in our family. Yu Gege translates to "Fish big brother" and it's because he loves to fish. So naturally when we went to Sanya we had to go fishing for the 'big-fish' of the South China Seas. We looked through the local website, sanyaweb.com to find a fishing expedition. It was about $50 per person and it they picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off in downtown Sanya's port.
|The waiting area for the boat. It was crowded with others|
either going fishing or waiting for boats to get wedding
photos taken aboard.
|Most of the nice boats were being chartered for wedding|
photo shoots. It was an interesting mix of luxury on the water
and local low-income homes along the shore.

|True fishing vessels - encouraging.|
|This boat was called '<something> Great Wall' and had the|
Great Wall of China motif. I think in was a Chinese party boat.
|Phoenix Island - a man-made island with hotels or apartments.|
|Wedding Photo shoot. Queen and King for a few hours.|
|Sloping hills into the water, seems like a good fishing area.|
|Maybe glacial by nature...|
|Out come the fishing poles. Encouraging decent poles but the|
size of the hooks was not good. They were sized to catch
|One of the big catches of the day, argh!|
|Bucket of about 10 tiny fish. The whole boat of 30 people's catch.|
Not even enough for a cat to eat...

|Waterfront property. Probably priceless in 20 years!|
