Holy crap, qwark...you're a better person than I! I think I might have been tempted to have that bad boy stuffed. I hope you got a picture or two at least!
I was a little girl when I caught a 16 in rainbow trout (with a homemade rod, I might add)...it's my best catch to date. With the exception of a great big carp who had scales the size of silver dollars...but it was a carp...I let him go.
Yep ohma...they love corn. I also use white bread mixed with corn flakes and just enuf water to knead and make a big doughball. Small chunks on the hook'll get the carp too.. I hope yer havin' fun!...:-)
Have not been able to go since my husbands disabilities have really become serious. it has been about 6 years since we have done any fishing. I do miss it, but I am afraid he just cannot manage it anymore and I would not go without him.
I caught a Silver King Tarpon?? I think thats what they said it was?? I think it weighed like 60lbs?? I was only 14 and it was in the Gulf of Mexico just off of Padre Island Texas..It was bigger than anything my dad caught that day!
Storm: You caught a prehistoric animal. The Tarpon ia a fighter! Not good to eat....but fun to catch. That must have been a thrill for you and your Dad. I've seen many of them during my diving years in the Keys in fla. Some of them well over 100 lbs! Good for you!
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...
