I felt bad for this poor lonely thread




so I went downstairs and licked my goldfish.

Lucky goldfish. I would have eaten it.

My fish was so undercooked, it ate my chicken!

I've become a convert. We have thick slabs of yellowfin tuna, dusted with pan-searing flour and cooked in a skillet with a dab of olive oil until both sides are lightly browned on the outside and cooked a quarter of the way in, leaving the center fully pink, whenever we can afford it. It's as good as going out to dinner, except for the ambiance. A Halloween placemat spotted with dried milk detracts a little, but it was still a great meal.

Does anyone else think of Blinky everytime they see this thread?

(I know they found a real one in South America but the Simpsons one is cuter!)

These days I just get the cans of sardines or mustard herring, 'cause I'm a bachelor like that :D They say it's very good for energy, but I haven't noticed a difference. You can't believe everything you read in the dime bookstore cooking section, I guess.
I'd love to get a whole fish and make risotto. Yum!

I actually thought Silver King would come along and post a fish photo, but I guess he's slipping lately.

I see them every time I go down in my bug room.

But don't ask me to eat them. Most types of fish make me heave my guts out for twenty four hours.
I'm not taking my chances on the pretty ornamental ones.

I miss seeing your fish photos.

In that case, I should post at least one.

The teens in this shot never dreamed they'd have such a good time fishing instead of hanging out with their boyfriends that night and getting into trouble.

I'm the handsome guy behind the camera who took the picture in almost complete darkness:

Thanks.

It was a fun night. The girls tag-teamed the fish for almost an hour, handing the rod off to each other every few minutes or so. They screamed a lot and laughed and worked pretty hard to land that fish.

When it was finally brought into the boat, I questioned whether there was enough light to take photos. I also preferred releasing the fish right then, as it was still quite healthy and flopping around on deck.

I was voted down and took a few shots, which took a couple of seconds each to process due to a lack of lighting.

Afterward, we tried to revive the fish and let it go, but it had died and sank out of sight.

My fish Truman would like to report this thread, but he's not a member.

I personally don't find this offensive, and I really like fish.

Smothered in butter or swimming in a lake or tank, I don't care.

Had me some seared yellowtail for the first time the other night. Not my favorite; a little too tough. The good part about the toughness is that it prolonged the meal and made the cost worth it.

A fish
Gold and silver and green
Light bending along wet curves
An emerald sea
A divided atmosphere
To have and behold
Life
Borrowed, then exhausted
Water broken
Outside the womb
Delivered
Back, to an emerald sea

lol. (Poor SK, can't leave this thread alone) ;) Those were nice pics though. Those silver fish really are gorgeous. So shiny. They almost don't look real. The scales are so metallic. Fascinating.

I haven't really seen or eaten any interesting fish lately, but I did see little containers of tiny octopi at my local Dominic's grocery story recently. That was weird. I wasn't brave enough to buy any and eat it. Also noticing a lot more sushi at the local grocery stores. Too much of a wimp to try that either.

My favorite used to be salmon and tuna but I've heard they are two of the most contaminated fish when it comes to mercury. (I still eat tuna, I don't really need all my brain cells).

Oh noes! I love tuna.

Does this mean I'm contaminated?

The fish was almost spent; and is it neared the boat, my hopes to capture a decent action shot had all but faded.

The fish sounded one last time, turned and surged toward the surface. I followed the line as it angled upward, adjusting the lens so my friend was also in the frame.

Then it happened:

After landing this tarpon, my wife claimed that she was too tired to lift the fish out of the water to pose for a picture. Luckily our friend, seen here wearing elegant evening gloves, helped her pose for this picture.

While framing the shot, I kept yelling, "Higher! Higher! Lift the freaking fish higher, you wimp!"

But that's as high as he could manage:

You know, I'm really disappointed. That can't possibly be a real picture. There are no empty beer cans rolling around on the deck.

What's even stranger is how the horizon in the background can be tilted to such a degree, yet the subjects remain relatively upright. I can never figure that one out, either. :)

Someday I'll have to send you a copy of a 15 second video a buddy took of me taking a whiz off the back of a boat off the coast of Sitka, Alaska. No, you can't see anything but the six to eight foot waves. Great fun, that.

Yes, please send it to me so that I can post it in this thread!

The more I look at that last shot, the more surreal it seems. The waters were calm at the time, with no pitching at all to speak of. The subjects are pictured the way they appeared, almost vertically, except my friend was leaning back slightly when the photo was taken.

Yet the background tilts dangerously earthward, as if we'd all fall into the drink as soon as the picture was taken. Or more than likely, before.

Weird.

Methinks the weight of the fish is tipping your boat over.

That's fishing for you - half the time, the fish catches you!

The last fish I ate wasn't interesting in the least. In fact, he was downright rude and boring. Just lay there on the plate like...like...well, like a dead fish.

You should've given him mouth-to-gill resuscitation. That probably would've spiced up both your evenings.
