Not What I Was Hoping To Catch


So, to go along with our blue crabs (oh, do we have a simple crab recipe fixed in muffin tins to share with you all) I decided to do a little lazy man fishing in hopes of landing a red fish or at worst a nice eating channel cat.

And as a reminder that it's not the gators or sting rays I most fear in the river - no, it's these things :) Especially the alligator turtles, which, if and when I do catch one I'll be sure to share with you.

This little hunk of jaw crushing pleasure did battle in hopes of keeping my hook and since I wasn't going to put my hand that close to his mouth... Well, let's just say that I got my hook back and some crab trap bait as well.

Wise choice to let him keep whatever he wanted!

Never saw anything like that.

We had a hammerhead shark in the river by us here. Yep, a real one.
