Herping turned fishing

A lot of field herpers seem to go fishing, or maintain aquariums, as much as they do herp! Any and all things fish are welcome in this forum.

Herping turned fishing

Post by simus343 » September 17th, 2015, 2:49 pm

Thought I'd finally share some fishing stuff instead of herping stuff.

Last sat I had a Aquatic Sampling lab. After spending the morning taking seagrass density cover and seine netting, I ended up spending about an hour herping. A friend of mine stayed behind to do some more seine netting. After finding a few cottonmouths, my friend finished seine netting and offered to bring me to a good fishing spot. Being a fisher just as much as a herper, I accepted.

Heads up, the photo is rather grainy - it was a cell phone pic with the phone having some fish slime on various parts of it, probably the camera lens as part of that.
Here's me holding my dinner:
