Be careful what you fish for! A surprising catch in Hopewell Bay
When you go fishing in Hopewell Bay, the day’s catch isn’t the only thing you might find in your net.
That became apparent to our town’s newest member, marine biologist Emilio, who took some of the local residents out on a fishing trip.
“I’ve always found that a day out on the water, luring in some cod and salmon while bonding over fish tales is the perfect way to get to know a new place and its people. The day seemed to be a success until something very fishy happened…” Emilio explains excitedly.
“It was a big briefcase if you can believe it!” Deb Boulton, a long-time resident of Hopewell Bay tells Boulton Bugle exclusively.
Among the colorful and beautiful catch that Hopewell Bay is known for, the group spotted an object that should have definitely been on dry land.
“It was a big briefcase if you can believe it!” Deb Boulton, a long-time resident of Hopewell Bay tells Boulton Bugle exclusively. “We also found a bottle with a note inside it but couldn’t open it up. I think that’s a real shame because it could’ve been a love letter.”
Emilio confirms that the bottle was left unopened as was the briefcase. With some encouragement from Roddy Took, local Building Inspector, Emilio reached out to Maddie Boulton, known for getting to the bottom of mysteries. However, when Maddie finally cracked open the case, it was empty – and even more surprisingly – completely dry, leaving this reporter wondering if it even was the original briefcase.
“The bottle was also missing, so we might never find out what the note said,” Emilio adds. “I know I’ve only been here for a short time, but I think it’s o-fish-ial, there’s definitely something mysterious going on in Hopewell Bay.”
