The bottom of the page shows two men fishing in a boat with an octopus attached to a fishing line. "Hawai''I / Archaelology" is printed at top left. Handwritten black marker crosses out the text "Week April 1-9, 1995" just below. A column of small text at center left and right discuss the use and construction of the octopus lure.
