To save themselves, Odysseus and his men had to use their brains over their brawn. The depiction of mortality of humans and their vulnerability was used with figurative language, and another example of this can be found in the scene of Scylla. The scene is set, and Scylla is stirring up the water to threaten Odysseus and his men. “All the sea was like a cauldron,” (II. 110-112) This is used to show the audience that the ocean was so dangerous, and how if the men fell in, they would die right away.
The Florida rig is an advancement over the toothpick-pegging method, Florida rig sinkers are molded around a thin Teflon tube, and a corkscrew wire that screws into the nose of a soft bait. Slip the sinker on the main line, tie the hook directly to the main line, and screw it into the bait. This provides the ultimate bait for a weedless and snagless presentation for big bass in heavy cover (Chen). One bait that is great for really dense weeds under the water is this rig because it seems to glide right through the weeds and not snagging anything which can be a huge advantage to the fisherman for getting in right in close with the bass. The Florida and Carolina rig both use soft baits, but the Lipless Crankbait is quite a bit different than those
A couple minutes later something happened that no one suspected. A couple minutes after they got to the beach, Bethany was lying on her board and she was dangling her arm in the water. Before she knew it a shark came out the water and bit her arm clean off. Bethany didn’t panic, she didn’t even scream. She called out as calm as she could and said ‘’I just got attacked by a shark!’’ Alana’s dad had gotten to her first and pushed her up to the shore.
Then I yelled “Let’s just go up to where we started out at.” Will screamed “Let’s go up to the bridge and see what it’s like.” So I went back up to camp where we started out at and Will went to check out the bridge to see what it was like. He would be back in an hour so I went and fished for an hour. Since it was raining I caught a couple of big fish in the river. When he got back we both fished for another hour and we were gonna call it a day. Every time we caught a fish it smelt really bad because the fish sometimes just flat out had a disgusting smell.
Bradbury’s Second Story It came on large, jagged toothed, yet deadly finned. It swam just below the water prowling for some fresh meat. Each fin was extended, a long extension to push water away like Moses parting the red sea. Each tooth was sharp and jagged, with rows and rows of teeth it could have been a shredder. And from the great breathing cage of the upper body those two fins pushed water out of the way, which might push schools of fish feet away.
Sandwiches in the cooler, our parents make their way into the water too. Aunty’s scream scares me. I can’t see her, but I can tell that she’s on the far side of the boat. Uncle Vinney and my father come to the same conclusion and rush to her side. What was once a relaxing afternoon on the water is juxtaposed with frantic commotion as Chris is hauled aboard the boat.
The main paradox occurs between the subject and its usual interpretation, the fish is ugly and scary. Bishop observes the fish with its large eyes, "sullen face" and "five big hooks grown firmly in his mouth" (Bishop 526). C. “The rainbow!” (Shmoop) The rainbow comes after the build-up of all the colors, which coincides with the action in the poem. As the speaker thinks about what to do with the fish, and begins to earn more appreciation and empathy for him, the colors start to grow. The full range of colors, the rainbow, symbolizes the speaker putting all the pieces together to make the decision to release the fish.
Ways Through the Waves This summer break, I went to Oceanside for a vacation with my family. We haven’t been to the beach for five years and we finally went. I was so excited for our visit at the beach. Ever since I was little I was always scared of stepping or going into the water because I always thought that a shark would come and eat me. This time I actually went into the water.
Lydia handed me another piece of bait, ”Here, use this and try fishing again.”, she said. I did and I did catch a fish that time. The next day while I was milking the cows, Mother came into the barn and exclaimed, ¨Nate, Nate, we got a letter from father!¨ We read the letter and found out that life in the camp was hard because they were on rations right now, and there was little water to go around. ¨Can we write a letter back?¨, I asked. ¨Sure, why not?¨, she replied.
Next, major details were missing throughout the book and this leaves the reader confused. In one chapter, Ava goes to the beach at four in the morning to help save some dogs from a high tide because she volunteers at a pet shelter. Her partner, Dalton says they only have about an hour to save the dogs. Once they save the dogs, the next scene is at a meeting that started at noon and Ava is late. All we know is, “We had to rappel down the seawall to the beach.
The first day when we got there it was dark because we had arrive at 11:25 p.m. So, my dad had decide just to go straight to the hotel and get some rest. The next morning my dad had woke up everyone at 8 to start the the day and go to the Aquarium and see the animals. It was my first time seeing sharks so close up and to pet them. While at the aquarium i turn to look at my mom and saw her smiling for the first time in forever.
