The Bridge Rubble is covered in oyster toadfish. It's crazy how many there are.About that time some here reported catching Toadfish. A few days later we fished the Bridge Rubble and caught some really nice size Toadfish too. Very aggressive. Of course, Toads are pretty common...but it was the most in that short a time I've ever seen caught.
Sure. However it may be a little easier to dangle the bait in front of lionfish using a short length of mono.I have a question for you divers. Is it possible/practical to dive with something similar to a cane pole and have a few bait options so that you can test and directly see what baits and presentations work best for lionfish?
The small artificial reefs that are overrun by lionfish often lack game fish. However, it is also common to see a few game fish among the lionfish when the reef is not completely overrun.Also, I'd say that from the videos I've seen, the infested reefs have very few other fish to compete for the shrimp.
There is a group of kids and teachers at Washington High School doing experiments with lionfish. One experiment is trying to determine if there is a predator/prey relationship between the leopard toadfish and lionfish.Bring in the toad fish. They have/will make a dent in the lionfish population!!!
Release the toads!!!!!
