I did get to fish again on Saturday while Neal chose to make a wal-mart run for water and damp-rid and other assorted-neverending-items for the condo life.
I caught more grunts/baitfish, choffers as they call them up here, on Saturday then the day before and much fewer spade fish. I got a wee bit hopeful for a larger fish when I started to get spade fish instead of choffers as that was what I was pulling in so much of on Friday before I caught the pompanos and that huge black drum fish.
A nice sized "mystery" fish was caught about the same time tidally as the day before for my good/big fish on Friday. the mystery fish turns out to be a blue fish. It swam about like a spanish mackeral and yet it was not a mackeral.
a puffer fish's belly. he was all blown up and then deflated by spitting out water! why did i think they filled themselves with air?
from the top he has some oddball spots looking like eyes?
if at first you don't succeed in a good picture try from the side! silly puffer fish would not cooperate with getting a good picture.
awwww finally, the blue fish! Note the 10" in length cheap green water shoes for perspective.
I have got to learn to turn the fish across the width of the boards for a better measurement view cheat. Of course, then I'd have to remember to measure the boards and the average gap measurement too. Might be easier to just buy a fishing measuring tape to use! Or at least get some prettier shoes. Perhaps in a hot pink or limey green?
hello fishey hope you enjoyed that you went back into the water to be caught another day.
and a hand-sized spade fish!
and below is the result of trying to take a picture of a flipping blue fish. literally flipping and flopping about. when i discovered i was using the video on the camera rather than snapping pics I went for it as it was actually holding still better than when i was snapping pics!
