Who knew fish could be so funky? - Tactical Ninja

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

This morning I got a text from Kiri. It had a picture in it.




It's one of those proverbial pictures, that says so much without saying anything at all. So I replied with this one:

"Meanwhile in Wellington..."



Which is what I was doing at the time. Wellington, as usual, is blowing its guts out. It was not a kayak testing day, nor even a kite flying day. My windcloth frame around the broccoli fell over in a gust, and the YoT dried his work uniform in the shed so he wouldn't have to go get it from the neighbours.

But yay, because look! My grinder is working! I did all my gear and those lambs on Monday should be cream after all that.


Also, I've been getting interested in soft bait, which is a soft plastic lure that imitates baitfish. I like lure fishing. Anyway, I couldn't resist giving these ones a try:



Fluoro rave bait!

My brother swears by the orange and green ones called "nuclear chickens".

I have some of those. Apparently they are the standard goto one that most fish will like. But I have never seen a baitfish that looks like that!

This is him. I figure he knows what he's talking about.

Hahaha nice fish! Although I bet he didn't catch that on a nuclear chicken softbait. ;-D

Probably not, but he might have caught the bait for that one on one.

Thanks! I am too, and after all that effort I shouldn't need to grind again for at least 4 months..

Maybe they are! ;-) Most information advises people to use lures that resemble whatever the fish are feeding on. But I've never seen any baitfish that look like that!

Who wouldn't take a bait like that?! It looks like it includes a free trip.

Hehe true. Have you seen that video of the dolphins sharing a puffer fish around and getting high? Maybe there's something in that..

Fish bait always amuses me! It looks so improbable!
