Hi,



Before the weather starts getting really nice, i wanted to pick the brains of some of our more educated fishermen. i am looking for information on all species... from pin fish to tuna.. so just speak what you know. I think we could all learn from this.





Thank you,

Aaron

Send a PM to <SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlPanelBar_lblUsername2>Coryphaena... Karon...

She's the resident Marine Biologist and can point you in the right direction. She invited me to a lecture at UWF where the visiting professor talked about the migration of Bluefin Tuna. INCREDIBLE!!!

They spawn off Louisiana and migrate up the east coast then swim accross the Atlantic into the Mediterranean where they are herded in schools into huge nets, the nets are hauled close to shore, the fish are fed and slaughtered when the market is right. (Fedexed from Spain to Tokyo overnight).

He also talked about tagging Marlin with satellite transmitters and tracking them.

VERY COOL!!!

She'd have allthe info you could EVER want. Probably still gets the visiting profs scheduled lectures at UWF too. She now works for the State of Alabama.

i may be using the wrong word.

every year fish have a cycle.

if you understand the cycle of a fish... share.

Well, the bream around my dock go to deeper water when it gets cold. Then, around spring, they come back to my dock to beg for food. :doh

Hope this helps some.

yea... i know some one who knows about this could fill a book, but it is hard to find information. I have looked.

so the more detail the better and i think this would be something that all of our members would enjoy.

It would be easier to answer or explain if you choose certain species. Karon is very good but she's not the only person who knows fish migration patterns on here

i know, but i was looking for a vast amount of information...



1. what triggers the flounder run off shore to spawn?



2. what brings the kings back? chasing the bait or water temp



3. Where do the catfish go in the winter?
