Re: [APD] Re: Picture of Alligator Gar
I'm guessing you're not a fisher-person?
Neither am I, but I used to be, and I used to enjoy it.
Have you seen the fellows that fish with their bare hands, in the
muddy shallows of the Mississippi, feeling around for giant catfish,
then sticking their hands in the fishes mouth, making a fist, and
trying to pull them out?
I think it's a testosterone thing.
I wouldn't mind watching, though--as long as they practiced "catch and
No hooks, even. Hard to say who would be hurt more by the experience.
Yeah I used to fish too. I grew up on 140 acres of riverfront property.
I'm so pissed with my dad selling it. The creek that ran to the river
located just beside the house was another playpoint. Minows! My uncle
had his own creek and it was my first exposure to an aquarium. He would
keep his trapped minows in a 50 gal tank with megga filtration going
on. They turned my creek into a sanctuary when I could not id some
stupid minnow and brought the MNR in. They declared it a sancturary when
they identified them as sturgeon minnows in _MY_ creek. Oh well. That
ended my trapping minnows until I learned you could import them from
other countries and keep them in glass tanks. One day I would like to
keep a native tank, and if I were still living beside the creek you can
bet I would have had a tank with all the life in there up in the house.
Rocks, grasses, three types of minnows (yellow, red shiners and
sticklebacks) as well as crayfish. Waterbugs too.
