Default First time in my life

I had to buy fish in order to eat some. This is so embarrassing. Excuses: I live in Hattiesburg, MS now (not Milton anymore), I'm about an hour and a half away from the coast (which I am very unfamiliar with fishing), and I've just been too busy. I remember the days when I lived in Milton, and always had a deep freezer full of deer, snapper, specks, sheephead and reds. Well this is the first frozen piece of **** (fish) I pulled outta the box. Barely 3/4 the size of a dollar bill. I feel nauseas.

A lack of time? Sounds like you need to re-prioritize your schedule. Lots of crapie and deer there.

Never met anyone who moved from Gods country to Mississippi and then bought such a tiny piece of Chinese fish

Orion, I completely agree with you. I definitely need to reprioritize. School, work, and children on the weekends makes it tough, however, not unmanageable! Time for me to man-up and get back on track. How ya been? Still wearin out the ol'shark shield?

Hisname, you're completely right about "God's Country." I sure do miss it! God willing I'll make it back there one day! "Such a tiny piece of Chinese fish." LOL Awesome!

Kenny,

Hope you get a breather up there and a chance to restock your freezer soon. Tried talapia once but did not care for it. Crapie on the other hand...

Let me know when you get a chance to come down here. Let's try to get some dives in. Yes, I still have the Shark Shield.

Vlado

Will do Vlado. Would love to do some more dives with you sometime. The only times I've seen sharks, you were there!

Considering that God created the earth and it's about 75% water, He must have intended for us to fish about 75% of the time. So with that in mind, in a perfect world we should shoot of the high mark for fishing. Adding day to day reality into that means that if we go fishing between 2 - 7 % of our time we are really doing good. Make some time to get a little fishing in, you'll feel better and put a little something in the freezer.

If you saw the episode of Dirty Jobs I saw you'd never eat Tilapia again! They were at a fish farm and the Tilapia were used to clean the tanks of fish crap from other fish, yes they eat the crap of other fish. After seeing that episode I just can't bring myself to eating Tilapia again! I always thought there was something funny about the taste now I know!

Oh, here's the proof too, make sure you watch the whole video: http://videos.howstuffworks.com/disc...farm-video.htm
