Fishing anyone?
Apr 04, 2017, 17:43
I caught over 20 Mangrove snappers yesterday, along with 5 sea trout and 2 redfish.
3 of the Sea trout came home with ole' Dhajjie.
The rest are back to their usual business.
Dhajjie likes a fish fry he does.

Always sensed the mystical aspect of fishing, and glad they didn't all come home, and those that did met a respectful and honourable plate.

Yes, I used to fish. Occasionally, when seasiding, I'll go out on a fishing trip. As a carnivore, I find it a more... i dunno... genuine way of getting a meal.

BTW What is a Mangrove Snapper? Is it big?

Indeed. I have no problem at all, being an 'ethical eater' these days ( Sorry. That sounds so fucking Guardian). Largely veggie given the choice, but for personal reasons that of no import here not always the case, which I'm fine with I cannot stand the attendant hypocrisy of so many 'types' - all identity groovy. So fucking tiresome and reductionist. Man and nature, in its purest sense, is beautiful balance.

Fishing is a way of life for me.
I spend as much of my spare time doing it as possible.
My very earliest memories are of fishing alongside my Dad.{mid 1960's}

A Mangrove snapper is a member of the Snapper family which also includes the Red Snapper too, a world class eating fish, and thus too are all the Snappers. They must be Ten inches" in length to keep around these parts, I caught several keepers yesterday whilst inshore fishing outside the Chassahowitzka river on the West coast of Florida.
But I let the blighters go.....I wanted a beer batter{McCormicks dry mix} dipped Trout fish fry in canola oil.{with hand cut potato fries and corn on the cob}
They{the snapper family} can get quite large in deeper water though....nigh on 20 pounds.
They are on my list for the next fry up.....

I've been fishing since I was a kid in Jersey (Channel Islands) where I used to sea fish. Now I just course fish (none game) and return all I catch. Wonderful relaxing hobby.

Carp. A decent one for that lake but small compared to those on larger stretches of water!
Took it on the surface with floatable dog biscuit on a no.10 barbless hook set 1/2" above the bait.
