    Uh, yeah, they were about the size of those in the pictures. Actually, aren't those pictures of me and my catch?!




    Wait... I don't fish... Nevermind...


    I guess that would put me in the "tall tales" catagory... :eek:

    I'm so busy lately that the only thing I'm fishing for is complements.
    I'll have to dig up some old fishing shots and post a few later.

    Actually, I thought of one! The other day I was working on a jetski in the water, and I had a mullet jump and hit my leg and land in the footwell! Yeah, so it was a minnow basically at about 13 inches, but using that type of sophisticated fishing technique, which is difficult to master, it's not half bad! :D

    Okay, I'll leave this thread for those who actually fish now.

    So, let me get this right.

    You were working on your jetski in the water and a fish hit your leg? This made you jump and your mulllet got caught 13 inchs down a well?

    Excellent!!

    :D That's about right!

    I see the confusion in my post. That's why one should re-read what he types before pressing send.

    To clarify, I was on the jetski working on the engine. I was not in the water, the ski was. The fish jumped out of the water, bounced off my leg, and ended up in the footwell of the ski. I was surprised.

    It was a dark & stormy night. I was alone, 681 miles offshore in 12-15' windblown seas in my 13' Boston Whaler, fighting the 1482 pound marlin with a 3 pound test hand line. Just then, I spotted the life raft filled with 4 Hooters Sweedish swim/massage team girls and a fully stocked bar & grille.....

    Much better ending than the Hemingway story, that's a 9/10 :D
    I guess it be a 10/10 if they actually saw you and didn't float away.

    Why is it that I can't edit this? I hate when I see I've made a spelling error & can't edit.

    Hi Dave,
    Don´t you have an edit button in your own posts? Or is it not working?

    In my first post, there is no "edit" button. In my last post there is.

    OK, maybe this button is just there until a new post is added. As a moderator I have them all along so I can not see what you are seeing.

    I guess you need to use the preview to be on the safe side then...:eek:

    When I worked on a commercial long-line fishing boat in Venezuela, all sorts of Deepwater nasties came up from the bottom of the ocean.

    When cold black water rises from the Atlantic floor to meet warm Carribean waters, this where the big fish come to feed but its horrible to fish in.

    It squirls and rips in all directions and some of your gear will tear apart or just tangle into a ball.

    Some nights a turtle or dolphin could get caught in the tangle and its hard work to cut them free but we always made sure they were ok before releasing them.

    One night a huge squid floated passed the boat, which was a 52 footer, I guessed this thing was almost as long as the boat. Some of the by-catch was so exotic even the onboard observer (all large Ven boats must carry a trained Fisheries observer) could not identify them.

    Some of the Anglerfish were so ugly and slimey we couldn't/wouldn't use them for bait. Yuck.
