AFN Kunsan – Gone Fishing


SOUTH KOREA OFFERS MULTITUDES OF NEW EXPERIENCES
FOR MILITARY MEMBERS. BUT NOT MANY CAN SAY THEY CAUGHT AN OCTOPUS. THANKS TO THE KUNSAN
OUTDOOR RECREATION CENTER, THESE TROOPS CAN. MR. SIM, HOKUM:
WE’RE OUT TODAY FOR FISHING, AND JJUKKUMI FISHING, VERY UNIQUE FISHING TRIP IN KOREA.
AH JJUKKUMI IS A LITTLE OCTOPUS AND SO VERY UNIQUE AH FISHING IN FALL SEASON. AND THEN,
ACTUALLY THIS IS ONLY KOREA. KIND OF WEIRD FISH, BUT IT WILL BE FUN. AS FOR THE PARTICIPANTS. AH THAT WAS SHOCKINGLY FAST AND EASIER THAN
I THOUGHT. ALSO, THEY ARE WAY HARDER TO HANDLE ONCE YOU GET THEM AH INTO THE BOAT THAN I
THOUGHT THEY’D BE. REPORTER:
EVEN FOR A SEASONED FISHERMAN, THERE’S A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING. EATING A LIVE OCTOPUS WAS SOMETHING THAT UH
I’M GLAD I CAN SAY I’VE DONE; WOULDN’T DO IT AGAIN, AH NOT EVER FOR A LITTLE BIT
OF MONEY I DON’T THINK, AH BECAUSE AFTER I BIT THE HEAD OFF THE TENTACLES AH KEPT TRYING
TO GRAB AHOLD OF MY FACE, AH, FELT A LITTLE BIT LIKE A SHARK IN THAT MOMENT. BUT FOR OTHERS, SIMPLY CATCHING ONE WAS ENOUGH. IT’S REALLY COOL SEEING OCTOPUS AND THE
FISH, HOW THEY INK EVERYONE, UM BUT I WOULD LIKE TO CATCH SOMETHING – THAT WOULD BE VERY
NICE! REPORTER:
AND CATCH ONE SHE DID. THAT WAS AMAZING, IT WAS A LITTLE CREEPY CRAWLY
AND UM FISHY, BUT IT WAS AWESOME! I’VE NEVER CAUGHT ANYTHING BEFORE SO IT WAS AMAZING.
I HAD A GREAT TIME! REPORTING FROM THE YELLOW SEA IN SOUTH KOREA,
I’M SENIOR AIRMAN ELIZABETH TARANTO.
