An Occasional Fishing Thread [Bandersnatch]

The Next Occasional Fishing Thread

Hello Piscators and Piscatrixes, this is the next occasional fishing thread. Occasional in this context means every three Saturdays at pretty much this time. For this edition I have decided to steal ideas from other threads. I will also suggest a theme, which as always is a jumping off point. All things fishy are on topic.

The first steal: Who Dis?

1 Ingrid Bergman.jpg

I went back and forth between “what have you seen out there?” and “the one that got away” for tonight’s theme. I’m going to tell a what I’ve seen story but the one that got away stories are good too.

One of the best nights of fishing I ever had I got skunked. I was kayaking out to Nauset Spit in late summer when there was fire in the water. That’s a term for phosphorescence, or what the smarty pants call bioluminescent diatoms. The water glows when you touch it. On this night the water glowed with every stroke of the kayak paddle. Fish that were spooked from the undercut banks took off like fire torpedos. When I beached the kayak the sand was wet and every step I took lit up like the Billie Jean video.

And then there were the Perseids. It was moonless, the Milky Way was showing off like a ripe young barista, then here come the meteors. God was absolutely showing off what he could do with light. I didn’t mind not catching anything. So what have you seen out there?

The second steal: a la the Pet Thread various Morons and Lurkers have sent in fish brag pics. As with the pet thread I got too many to handle so please be patient if you don’t see yours. I think the fish brag pics will be a continuing but not constant feature of the Occasional Fishing Thread.

This is McGyver:

Last fishing thread you mentioned that Eric Clapton had most likely got an old hatchery fish from the pic, it could be but I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure that fish was wild. He was fishing in Iceland and they have some interesting rules, like everything is catch and release. The wife and I went to Iceland on a kinda cultural exchange thing (her ancestry is Icelandic) a year ago. Well, besides finding the old farmstead where her great, great, great, umptity, ump grands homesteaded in 874 (NOT a typo!) I got a chance to do some fly fishing for Icelandic Browns. A tad pricey, but, you only live once.

[That came up in a non-fishing thread and I still think Clapton’s fish was a hatchery sow, but McGyver’s fish is pretty – ed]

Muad’dib’s kid caught a dinosaur.

Lurker Jeff will not let the terrorists track him down.

I am a longtime lurker, and saw the occasional fishing thread. Seemed the least I could do after all these years of lurking was share a fish pic, give something back , as they say. Anyhow, the attached is a 50 lb rooster fish I caught in Boca Chica, Panama last year on a guided trip. They fight like bulls; it was like hauling up an engine block! We used 8" "blue runners" as bait drifted down to about 50 feet. Feel free to post this if you want. You can call me "Toxic Jeff",

4 Jeff.jpg

Tony sez:

My name is Tony and I would like to share a pic of a Nurse Shark I caught off the west coast of Florida while fishing for Grunts. I was fishing in about 250 feet of water over a rocky bottom which my guide took me too. I was using 20lb test line as well, it felt like I had hooked the bottom, and it took me all of 45 minutes to bring this fish to the surface. The Captain was amazed that the line didn't break, and when I asked him about the fish, he told me it was at least an 8 foot, 300lb shark. Biggest fish I have ever caught so far. Most painful as well because the next day I ached all over from horsing this fish from the bottom.

This is not a joke, this is a legitimate brag pic. It means that there are wild spawning brook trout on a stream that is heavily stocked and gets heavy fishing pressure. Wild brookies are among the prettiest things in the world. I caught this.

Thank you as always for playing in the fishy thread. Suggestions and brag pics are welcome at aoshqfish@gmail.com.

26 My brothers, I and a few friends rented a houseboat just outside of Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota every spring for 25 years or so. 2 shield lakes that look like those old revolving Hamms beer signs. Learned a lot about how powerful mother nature can be and how good walleye taste fresh from the lake to the pan.

28 Brother had the monster pike that got away after trying to eat a nice walleye he'd caught. Dad thought he'd let it get stuck on something because brother couldn't reel it up. Big surprise, attempted netting, ate the walleye later despite it's having tooth marks completely across it's body.

30 We like to have a freezer full of fish for frying at my parents' house. So, during the summer, when the bass fishing is slow, my brother and I run trot lines for catfish. I'll have to submit the pic of the big blue cat we caught last summer. It was my son's first time to run the lines with us. I thought his eyes were going to pop out of his head when saw it. It was a great time.

We do the same thing in Lake of the Woods in Ontario. Every year for 22 years, so far. Mornings are for walleyes. Afternoons are for pike and musky. Evenings are for really great meals and adult beverages. It's heaven.

36 I've caught some decent fish over the years: decent stripers and rockfish, a few mackerel (great eating), sheepshead, and a bunch of others. No photos.

The one where I wish I had a picture would be the first fish I caught on a fly I had tied. It may have been a world record tiny bluegill. Probably no bigger than my thumb. I still laugh thinking about it. It even beat out a baby striper I took from the Potomac. I had snagged it by the tail and thought it was a leaf. Not exactly a titanic piscene struggle.

Those northerns can be some feisty critters. Tear the shit out of all your tackle and bite you if they get a chance. Funny to watch gulls try to swallow a whole carcass and try to fly with the tail hanging out of it's mouth.

41 I remember taking a touristy fishing trip off of Cape Cod with my girlfriend. The one where about 20 people fish off of each side of the boat. The only thing we caught was the ugliest , creepiest fish I've seen. Like a spider fish. Anyone know what it might be?

Posted by: Can't resist temptation at April 13, 2019 08:03 PM (2DOZq)

42 I have no line to cast in this thread but I will say that I love eating those very small catfish, pan fried.

I thought Rockfish was a Chesapeake word for Stripers?

The regional variation in fish naming is cause for constant confusion and hilarity. A southern Bonito is a northern False Albacore. There's a whole different fish called Bonito in the north.

Your crappie is our calico bass, etc.

48 One time I was fishing off the rocks trying for stripers. I don't recall if I caught anything but it was a clear night, no moon, and an utterly dark area. The Milky Way was the brightest I had ever seen. The reflected light laid down a carpet of diamonds on the water, undulating gently. That was almost 50 years ago and it remains fresh in my memory.

Posted by: JTB at April 13, 2019 08:10 PM (bmdz3)

49 Never thought much of catfish until I ate some of those gigantic Mississippi cats out of the Wolf river in Wisconsin. They would put them in an old minnow tank for a few days and then bleed them out a certain way. The meat was pure white and some of the best fish I've ever tasted.

Posted by: dartist at April 13, 2019 08:12 PM (K22Va)

50 I wasn't fishing, but I was out on the water: a cruise ship, heading east through the Florida channel in March 1996. We were due to dock in Miami in the morning.

At midnight, our friends came pounding on the door, insisting that we go up on deck right NOW.

So I went up, still in my pajamas, and my friends led me forward to the bow and pointed.

Right in front of the ship, as large as the Big Dipper, was Comet Hyakutake. It had brightened unexpectedly, with a vast glowing green tail streaking across the sky, and the eye of the comet glittered a malevolent green.

51 Maud'dib, I'm sorry I have no idea about that. Please educate me.

Posted by: Ben Had at April 13, 2019 08:12 PM (ZE3T8)

52 I got a good one of what I've seen: returning from Westpac cruise via Hawaii in the Pacific south of the equator, I was up on the 3rd deck at my cleaning station early in the morning.

Looked over the side and saw this HUGE fish swimming parallel to the ship but in the opposite direction. I mean HUGE. Bigger than our Utility boat which was right there on the main deck to compare with. (it's about 30 feet long).

This fish was maybe 5-10 below water cause it was very easy to see. I THINK it was a whale shark but couldn't see spots so not sure was a charcoal colored on it back and the mouth was closed. Could've been a different type of shark but they don't get quite that big usually and are a different color.

I didn't know anything about whale sharks at the time so I found all this out later. Most interesting thing I've ever seen in the water. (well except for Phoebe Cates getting out of the pool in slo mo. Perfect back ground music BTW)

54 About 60 years ago I was fishing the Rogue in Oregon with my grandfather when I caught a fish that I nor he (an outdoorsman who followed the salmon runs and hunting seasons across the U.S.)had never seen before. It was two inches and dead when I brought in my line, so gramps took it to the Coast Guard station and asked what it was. The Lieutenant said, "What that is is a $500 fine (in 1960!)" Turned out it was a baby sturgeon.

I am currently in Kill Devil Hills, NC. I don't fish but I received an invitation to go out on a "head boat" to catch something. Is it fun? I mainly want to go and smoke cigars while hanging out on the water though, since I know nothing about fishing. Anything I should know or is it best if I hang with the captain and watch?

I am getting ready for my next out and back to Beeeooootiful Gulfport MS. While packing for this I am also packing for Giggles, who is going on a Smith River float next Sunday (yes, they are putting in on Easter Morn) She's taking my Grandpa Bill's 1930s bamboo combo rod and stands to have four days of Heaven on Earth. I am jealous, but I've floated the Smith with our Scouts, so, it's her turn

Go! I've had some amazing charters out of Hatteras. The last was the best. Four of us chartered a boat and motored abut 50 miles offshore to the Gulf Stream. An amazing day on the water. Wahoo, tuna, mahi-mahi and at the end of the day, a 14' long blue marlin (released). A NC citation fish for our pal who reeled it in.

73 I got to scuba dive in the big tank at the Georgia Aquarium with the whale sharks. Went with #2 son because he wanted to go. A very interesting experience, being inside the fishtank instead of on the outside. They take you on a tour all over the big tank, which holds something like 10 million gallons iirc.

75 Are the Perseids the August meteors? One year I went out on my third floor balcony to see them. I waited a while, then the showers started. At first I was delighted and awestruck. But then I got all choked up and couldn't watch anymore, had to run back inside. I'd suddenly realized how far from home I was.

90 There are a few fish I was proud to catch. A few four pound large mouth bass on two pound test line. Not a world record but they fought and it took skill not to snap the line.

The best were a couple of snook I caught in Florida by a pier. Snook are powerful fighters for their size and they often hang around barnacle covered pilings. On purpose. They are possessed by the devil and will run your line against the pilings, wrap a line around anything available (the sharper the better), and would bite through the leader if they could. In two years I caught exactly two of them. But it was worth the effort. First there is the satisfaction of defeating their evil possession. Second, they are about the tastiest white-fleshed fish on the planet.

It was a shallow bay with some weedy grass and you would just walk around until you saw one and grab it. We caught a few buckets full. The meat in them was tiny though and seemed to me hardly worth the effort. That's probably why we didn't go back.

In one of these threads I'll talk about other kinds of fishing like lobstering (which I've done) and raking clams (I have not).

I did catch two scallops once. Was jigging a sabiki rig off the bottom looking to catch bait for trolling and I hooked two scallops. They weren't snagged, that had sought out and hunted the jigs.

It turns out that scallops have a light sensing thing that isn't quite eyes but works.

Posted by: Toxic Jeff at April 13, 2019 09:02 PM (p47Y4)

120 I have a number of books with fly tying patterns. Beautiful and sometimes rather involved examples. But from my limited experience fly fishing, it seems the simpler, easier to tie patterns are the most effective. I suspect a fly box could be stocked with Wooly Buggers and variations, Elk Hair Caddis, and a couple of dry flies and the fisherman would be set for many types of fish. Just vary the sizes. Of course, salt water is a different matter.

Oh yeah. Add some foam ants and a few gnats.

I don't know if this impression is correct. If it is, it would simplify future tying efforts.

They can see you coming and jet off in random directions. That's when you can spot them in the shallow water and catch them if so inclined.

I think swordfish is too expensive for that. People do punch out cookie cutters of skate (a ray-like trash fish) and others for fake scallops, but real scallops are a real shellfish.

All on a rod and real and some point in our group of uncles cousins and friends. Oh, and crappie. My uncle was drunk when he caught the beaver and swore it was a platypus.

177 If I go down to our family farm pond early in the morning ( when there's not a thunderstorm going on ) it is almost guaranteed that within 10 casts of a silver Rapala in a likely spot I will snag a largemouth bass over a pound. Sometimes several pounds.

Ok back to fishing. Who else her likes the classic Rapala plug? Silver or gold?

Silver, not jointed and the old knives were awesome.

183 I don't like the jointed ones either. 4 or 5 inch floater is adequate. All the other fancy colors don't seem to make a difference either.

188 a true phospho story...

In Tongue of the Ocean, bahamas, coming to periscope depth (I was driving, so, first-hand account)

OOD: "No large shapes or AAAAHH HOLY SHIT I CAN'T SEE I'M FARKING BLIND!!!!!!!"

the qm took the con and we went on up while somebody scrambled to find an ood, that one being, uhm, blind.

Our off the cuff analysis, after eliminating russians, aliens, venus or the moon, was:

a jellyfish splattered itself all over the periscope head window.

Good times.

190 Toxic Jeff, that's a monster you caught!

I am a native of Chiriqui and many of my relatives fish/ed Boca Chica a lot.
My uncle had a big roosterfish ---not as big as yours --- mounted in his study and it scared me silly when I was a little girl.
I think one of my brothers told me that the fish shot poison through the combs. Anyway, I believed that!

193 Another fire on the water story. One night I was bringing the kids home and it was raining these big drops but not very many. It was really an odd rainfall.

We walked around the back of the dark house to look at the canal and every time one of these freakish drops hit the water, it lit up with the glow like a ghostly green star that faded away. There were hundreds of these lights appearing and disappearing in the water as far as the eye could see.

The kids were in a hurry to get in to play video games but when they saw this they just stared, wordless, for what must have been five minutes.

It was probably the most miraculous thing that I ever have seen and I'm sure it was for them too. Video games could wait while we all stared in awe at something we knew we would probably never see again, it was so intensely beautiful.

They still tell there friends the story, many years later.
I can still see it perfectly in my minds eye. Thanks God.

196 My favorite aunt and I were night fishing off a dock in far north Wisconsin circa 1971. The sky was weird, white like it was cloudy, almost like the line of a storm. You could still see stars. City kid that I was, I had no idea what I was looking at. My aunt told me it was the Milky Way. The only time in my life I have seen it.

Love Boca Chica. Check out the Seagull Resort-I highly recommend it. Fantastic cabins on the pacific, great food, not too expensive, etc. We're going back this September for tuna fishing..

202 The one where I wish I had a picture would be the first fish I caught on a fly I had tied. It may have been a world record tiny bluegill."

You DO know that bluegill will take a bare hook, right??? Guess their little fish brains think its tiny, weird worm!

The tiniest brookie puts up a more exhilarating fight than the usual brown trout!

Every decent-sized brown (20+ inches) I've managed to land, I initially cursed as a "snag"----thinking it would lead only to a broken line/lost lure or fly!

204 I once went on a fishing cruise out of Hampton Beach, NH. It was about twenty guys and one young gal. We guys caught mostly dogfish, which are inedible.

But she came home with a red snapper.
