Ooh, Trashy Lady

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Keith pulls a poor man’s tarpon out of the first gut.  This weekend was a ladyfish-killer weekend with the Austin Fly Fishers down on Padre Island National Seashore.  No ladyfish were actually harmed in the making of this trash.  Presumably because they are rumored to taste bad, oily– hmm… smoked fish spread anyone?

 

So Long and Thanks For All the Salad

“Salad”, “moss”, “algae”, “vegetation”, whatever you want to call it… they don’t eat a lot of it, normally.  No, that’s for those asian carp.  The germans like their aquatic insects, freshwater crustaceans, minnows and the occasional egg by preference.  But sometimes, food is scarce, and the germans get hungry.  It looks worse on your leg than it actually is.  Yup.  It’s really nothing more than water and moss, as funneled through the wiley fishcarp.
