My BIGGEST Fish! - #LiveLikeHELLA Day 6
This is the biggest fish I've ever caught! It's a lingcod that weighed 60-70 lbs (27-31 kg). Originally I thought it was about 90 lbs (40 kg) but comparing it to others I've seen online, I'm assuming it's a bit lighter. Still, what a BEAST! I ended up throwing him back in because the last guy I went halibut fishing with said that cod wasn't good here. That's why we thew so many back (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6wIp... @ 2:15) BUT apparently this isn't the type you want to throw back. So I'm feeling REALLY stupid right now! lol It's all good though because we caught what we came for (minus the halibut). All together, Kristen and I managed to bring home 5 silvers (salmon) and 2 black bass. That's more than enough fish for the day.
STRANGE FISH CAUGHT! - [Living in Alaska 102]
This is Ice Fishing 101 and today I'm showing you how I catch my fish, how I clean it, how I cook it and how we eat it. The fish we're after is a landlocked salmon. They're much smaller than most other ocean or river caught salmon but that's pretty typical. I'm calling my recipe "DudeLikeHELLA Lemon Pecan Baked Salmon". Let me know what you think!
Strange Animals: Strange Fish
An oarfish can easily be mistaken for a sea serpent, but they are really the longest bony fish in the sea, growing to fifty feet or more in length. The longest oarfish alive according to the Guinness Book of World Records is 36 feet in length. Oarfish are rare but found worldwide in tropical and temperate waters at depths from the surface to 3,000 feet. Not much is known about their habits and life cycles, but they probably only come to the surface when injured or dying. They feed on very small fish, shrimp, and other invertebrates that they filter through their toothless mouths. Oarfish have shiny, silvery bodies, bright red crests on their heads, and are also known as ribbon fish.
