Had a decent day at shell mound today. Got a half dozen finger mullet on first two throws of the cast net, then following y'alls advice chopped 'em in half and fished them fresh cut. Got two large catfish, landed a black tip shark (about 24" long) and missed landing another about the same size when the line broke as I was lifting him out of the water.
Here is some info from a long time ago ....
Thing is... other than some fish-n-chips once a year or so, and smoked salmon on my bagel, I don't really eat fish. Shell fish yes, "regular" fish no. So 99% of the time I'm catch and release. Occasionally I'll have a buddy along who does eat fish, and then he gets the option of keeping/cleaning/cooking 'cause I ain't gonna do it
All 'cause when I was 5 I caught over 100 big blue gills, took 'em home and then had to help clean and eat them.
