    Fun stuff:

    Tell us your Favorite marine creature (yes a real one) and why you like it so much.

    My personal favorite is: Opah a Hawaiian fish in the king mackerel family. Cool skin, fast like a tuna. Legend has it that Opah was never to be bought or sold but given as a gift.

      i also think whales are magnificent. so intelligent and wise. i cringe when i read about them being slaughtered in Japan sad

      i also think Moon jellyfish are pretty extraordinary looking.

    Freshwater-to catch whitebass, to eat bluegill
    Saltwater-to catch kingfish, to eat cod
    White bass because they fight good and you can catch them in bunches, bluegill are a firm and mild flavored.
    Kingfish are a blast to catch and are great fighters, cod is a nice tasting white and flaky.
    Crossover fish has to be salmon.

    As a fisherman I would say bream is my favorite fish. It is a fighter and it is good eating.

    I like whales but they aren't really fish. Not happy with the Japanese over whaling.

    Not sure if dolphins can be put in the fish category but I like them hanging around.

      Pearldiverposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      The last thing you need hanging around when you are fishing for bream or anything else... has to be dolphins hmm

      If they are around... you won't catch fish mate sad

      1. Rod Marsden profile image77
        Rod Marsdenposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Well, I beg to differ....I have known dolphins to catch their fill and actually chase bream onto your line. Besides, when the bream are on the move in autumn they are really on the move. Go fishing the wrong time of year or the wrong spot and of course its a different story.

    I like freshly caught fish especially caught by yours truly. I use a rod and a reel so the fish do have a reasonably good chance of getting away.

    I am not at all keen on the practices of some nations when it comes to fishing. There are oceans, seas, lakes and rivers very much in danger of being fished out. How do we get the message out that fish species are heading for extinction? How do we get the message out that the supply of fish in our oceans, seas and rivers is actually finite and can come to an end if we do nor husband resources properly?

    Modern fishing equipment such as the use of sonar means we really do have to understand fish numbers and try very hard not to over fish and require others to do the same.

      mlakhanyposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      In California there are strict limitations as to how many of each kind of fish you can catch in a day. After that you are sent home. By the way where did you learn that fish are finite. I do not believe that statisticians or anyone has even a near accurate count of sea creatures including fish in the ocean.

    OMG you Alvy fishermen can only dream about NZ sealife lol
    I've fished and dived most of my life... I do think I know a wee bit about the sea and fishing.. though I have to admit I never believed you could catch much in Sydney harbour, until I saw how many bodies got fished out of it each month lol

    Aussi... Nearly lost the cricket again today huh? hmm lol

    1. Rod Marsden profile image77
      Rod Marsdenposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Never fished NZ but I would like to.

      No, you can't catch much worth catching in Sydney Harbour. I had a few goes when I was younger but I didn't like it. Besides, it is still quite a poluted harbour.

      When I fish it is either around Wollongong or in northern NSW near the Queensland border.

      Nothing wrong with using an Alvy. I prefer them to those Japanese mixmaster style reels.

    The Giant Bluefin Tuna. There is no other rush like the initial run of a 500+ pound fish that just figured out all is not right with the world. The end product is in the form of a nice check freom the buyer, and the freshest tuna possible. After cleaning the fish onboard the boat we always would have a little "sushi feed" on the way in.

    Fish terrify me. Always nipping at your toes while you're swimming in the lake... *shudders*. I vote Orca, or Killer Whale. Whale's in general actually. That's the Canadian signature sea creature.

    And I don't like to eat fish either, as I'm allergic.

      Well, at least the bait is cheap - with or without the worms.  You can catch those chubby short-framed fish with simple "bread balls" on a hook.  I always thought bass and catfish tasted better, but the fish you speak about, make for great "poor boy" meals.

    Pickeral, which most folks don't consider because of the fine bones in the fillets. Trick is, fillet the fish, put in blender which elimates the fine bones, make into patties, apply breading with bread crumbs egg milk and fry. Tastes great.
