Looks like something from Africa. I seem to remember watching a fishing show last winter and they were catching these off the east coast of africa........

That's a big tiger! I realize the photo is a joke, but it is a matter of fact that bull sharks (the most dangerous of the maneaters) have been caught up to 1,000 miles up the Mississippi River from the Gulf.

Saw those on "The Quest For Big Fish" They seem to be impossible to hook. The host said they'll turn your rapalas to sawdust. ooo.gif

Is that the one I have seen people bowfishing for in the South? When I used to be allowed to have MOR they showed guys trolling prety fast in a boat and the fish would jump out of the water, they shoot them with the bow out of the air. I saw a few land in the boat (not shot, just landed there) and it looked pretty exciting. If given the chance I will try to thin the population...

Wouldn't it be great to fish the Amazon. When I win the lottery thats where I'm going. Peacock Bass, huge catfish, Payaras....maybe a few caimen (little crocodiles)

That would be a tiger fish, native to africa, not the amazon.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
