Default Fish fish fish.... and a crab. All mine.

Hi guys.

Gone for a fishing trip this last Thursday. Look what I caught:

This is the whole catch (my catch only):



One of them is a grouper. I dunno the name of the others in English (all one kind) but if you're interested, it is called "sha'oor" in Arabic.


Here is the grouper in my hands:



And finally, say hi to my friend here. I caught her (yup, female) and released her later. She was small to eat:



The trip was so tiring, which is expected for open sea boat trips. Not to mention expected motion sickness that could ruin the whole thing. Luckily I came prepared and managed my diet that day. And the day before. Got a little dizzy latter on the trip is all.

And the taste was... well, what fresh food tastes .

Later y'all

Came to this thread expecting aquarium pics. Instead I get a bunch of fish impaled on a pole. Wonderful.

Sometimes I think the same thing when I see a thread about fish and it turns out to be a bunch of fish trapped in a tiny glass tank.

Nice catches! Too bad you didn't catch any big crab. They are delicious.

Sweet catches! That crab looks awesome.

Well, thanks guys for your comments and remarks, and above all, honoring me with your attendance. All of you

I believe, just a personal preference, it is better to have the fish caught to eat instead of to be imprisoned in a fish cell - I mean tank. And besides, a man's gotta eat as well. This is life guys. Sorry for the disappointment, if any.

Where I was, unfortunately there was no big crabs. Otherwise I would have caught them instead of the fish. They do taste great (better) and look more awesome than fish.

"Trapped" was a good key work Superman22x.

the next time if you catch a crab, put it on the ground and tapdance on it
and let that be a warning for his family for biting me and stealing my bite...

Now that's a good idea. But too bad dancing is not my thing.

Actually, I caught it with my bare hands off the shore (yup, I'm tough ha ha). Looking carefully at it I realized it was small to eat. Lucky crab. You don't find nice people like me these days, eh?

Yeah, actually in another trip I caught another two crabs, a little bigger than the one in this thread. The legs had some good amount of food in it. I'll try to post the pics later. The taste was soooo good. Fresh, my personal catch and all.

I caught these fishes in the Red Sea here in Saudi Arabia. Never been to Denmark. Last time I've been abroad was like 15 years ago and it was to Egypt. All before that I was too young and mindless to understand anything

Edit with the two victims :

Here is one:

This is a different specie that the one in the original post.

And here is the other:

Of the same specie in the original post. My hands are clearly missed up here as I was fishing as well and the bait was squid which is really messy.

Here they are after boiling them:


And another view:


Both are clearly male

Bigger claws, and claw meat is my favorite. Plus preserving the harvest.

Boiling them for 5-7 minutes, don't remember exactly, did the trick.

Did I mention they were so delicious?
