Fishing in Galilee

I knew I should have brought a fishing pole...

We did a quick trip out to the Sea of Galilee, and it was a beautiful evening.

Water was calm, lots of little fish in the water. It even smelled 'fishy'.

The internet reported that they closed the Lake to fishing because the stocks were so depleated.
So... I didn't bother bringing a pole. Bummer! Apparently it is still open for sport fishing - there were a couple old-timers hand-lining the banks.
If only I'd have brought a few nightcrawlers along on this trip. Or powerbait. Would I have to declare "worms" at customs?

The water was very clear and inviting. Enough smaller fish makes me believe it could have been a good trip.
I violated rule #4 - ALWAYS have a fishing pole along.
