What's the best fish bait?
« Reply #25 on: 13/04/2008 06:36:45 »
down here we use shrimp or squid and we get like sailcats, redfish, and catfish on occasion, but we dont eat those. we kill them,cut them into chunks. put them on a way bigger rod with a huge hook, and use them for shark bait.......well all except for the sailcat, those are way too big. almost broke my rod pulling one up from the pier i fish off of

I think you should go fishing tomorrow and catch a shark or two for your mother!  That would be soooo good for dinner! :)

No - it is a variety of fish in the Gulf of Mexico that actually has a yellowish cast to it's belly. - I will try Google -

Yes, it is also known as:

Black Kingfish
Crab Eater
Lemon Fish
Ling

Google "Lemon Fish" - you will get pictures -  the variety we get along the Texas coast is the lighter colored version during some times of the year.

Just a thought, what about fish oil from a Thai shop, that is prety pungent

Caught a lot of fish myself :) Used to fish freshwater, competition fishing, then started sea fishing and liked the idea of eating what I caught, so sold course fishing tackle. Not been fishing for a long time though. Was featured in the Sea Fishing Magazine titled "Big Bass Bonanza", picturing yours truly holding up 3 double figure bass caught from the shore by trawling sandeels on a carp rod and real vey slowly over the launching Jetty at Brixham Harbour. My son aged 6 then "My how time flies past" holding a ten and a quarter pound bass he caught and landed himself :) Proud day that was :)

JimBob - I know what lings are, but I've not heard them called by those other names.

I guess each area has their local fisherman's language.

I will take some digital photographs of him holding the fish and see how they turn out when put on the net. Looks pretty amazing when you see how big the fish is compared to him at 6 :) Thanks for the applause Doc. He also has some pics of large carp he has caught, these are digital so can be viewed online with ease.

Well hopefully that went ok: try clicking on the picture to view slide show
