Jim Morrison, Gone Fishin’ (1970)

Jim Morrison & Max Fink 1970, Tuna fishing in Bahamas

Man! This photo is awesome! I found it on Pinterest without any credits and wanted to know more. What was the deal with Jim Morrison of The Doors and fishing? According to a site called “feel numb” this fishing trip happened in September of 1970 in the Bahamas.

Jim was on a break from his indecent exposure trial in Miami. He took a two day charter for “some fishing, snorkeling and drinking” along with his friend Babe Hill and his Beverly Hills lawyer Max Fink. (hmm, those are some pretty funky names!)
