I'm taking my Mossberg 590.  With some very light bird shot.  WTF, why don't they make fish shot?  How the fuck are you supposed to mount the head and tail fin if you inadvertently load 3" slugs?

I'd never heard of shooting fish.  Is that after you catch them?  Probably better than letting them suffocate in a bucket like some people do?

God, what if you miss the brain the first five tries?  My dad tried to kill an animal once by sledge hammering its head and it did not die for several minutes.  Yuck.  This fish already looked pretty dead.  But the guy seems to know where the brain is but the seizure when slicing it.  I appreciate the info.  I've asked many people this question and you guys with your brain cut and bird shot are the onky answers I've ever gotten.  I wonder if a quick decapitation might work too.

Ha! Absolutely.

Years ago I had a cheap tackle-box made by a Prominent company and the plastic used in the trays would react with fake worms or some lures. Sort of melt and fuse together. Including the tray itself molding a bit into a reverse worm shape! (This was when I was young and just threw the fake worms and lures into the trays and before fake worms had all the gimmicks, scent, etc and kept in own packaging.)

I put it off to something similar to galvanic corrosion between dissimilar metals- but in a plastic form!  They have obvious improved their products.

Thankfully they did improved.  But the reaction with the plastics is odd.  However I've had models, etc, that degraded over time and would react in different ways to virtually no outside stimulus. (heat, cold, chemical, moisture)

It reminded me of models or fixing stuff etc. You know how with certain plastics if you use a wrong glue, solvent, or adhesive they can sorta melt plastic? Does plastic 'flow' over time? With a really old model that hasn't been subject to movement?

This happens to me, especially after a EG conversation.

Re: water color. It still changes, even in Dixie, to degrees of brown though in places with fake lakes, old gravel pits, or karst stuff (like here or in some of FLA) you can get crystal clear water. And, obviously, the salinity and "clearness" if fishing on the bays and bayous on rain, tides, etc.

A couple months ago someone I know was a marshal on the BASS tournament and said the lake was very clear but guys were catching them on surface lures. Fish would come up from the way deep. Also one day 100F and then a rainstorm one of the days and they still catch fish. The pros are amazing. He said the worst thing was how they drive. No comfort on boat and they 60mph+ bouncing all over the place, camera guy holding on for dear life, etc.

Idk maybe he was? But water color, temp, salinity, moon phases, season, etc does matter- to what extent and which is more important than others? Companies, guides, and the industry says "a lot," but of course they would.

Ugh.  I just go by the weather and the time of day.  I'm a casual fisherman who likes to catch fish and then release them.  My problem is I haven't caught one fish in three years!!!  The guy next to me on the river bank last time caught 8 or 9.  I moved upstream.  Nothing.   :(

Muddy water, clear water, green water.  It matters. 


Sun vs cloudy does as well but not as much.

So how does that affect what lures I use?  Brighter ones if murky?  More active (spinners)?

Maybe if they are IN the bucket but not if they are in the water. In fact sometimes even shooting the actual fish when breaching or jumping, unless in the head (and with hardheads even then,) sometimes won't kill it.  It is all about placement. Folks kill gators and poach deer with .22, illegally but effective at close range and good placement.

Okay, but then can I be sure the water will prevent ricochet or a hold in the bottom from the ammo?  I guess it wouldn't matter bec in worst case scenarios, I'd probably save the ammo and not do it.

For people who like to cook their fish just after catching them, Here is one way that I like to cook them.

1) With some foil, coat it with some olive oil
2) Slice some red potatoes, onions, carrots and some garlic in the foil.
3) Then put the fish into the foil and then seal it up.
4) put the foil on the BBQ for about 10 to 12 minutes. Flipping the foil about the halve way point 5 to 6 minutes point.
5) take the foil off the BBQ and open the foil. Add salt and pepper for taste.

Ha. Carp fishing is very popular in Europe and the UK for some reason not as popular here (though there are some aficionados and some folks are being won over, especially because can be caught near urban populations or nasty rivers.)  I'm not quite sure where the distinction is between gold fish, koi, and carp? Scientific or just a matter of size or use?
