For those of you who were hoping for a blue claw, hope no more. I would like to have seen the rest of this crab, but alas I only found a claw. You may call me clueless, if you must, but do not call me clawless. Or silly. Photo taken on Copano Bridge Pier, Texas.
Fishing in Port Aransas, Texas, was quite a bit of fun and I caught some big salt water catfish which I promptly threw back. At one point this huge ship was making it’s way into the Gulf and was much more impressive than the bony catfish. A quick google search:
This big beauty was docked with it’s engine running and the captain was on board doing some paperwork in the pilot house. I did not get to talk to him but the boat was clean and the engine idled smoothly. As to the name of this trawler, that will remain a mystery.
No harm came to this fish who was tossed back into the water within 45 seconds of catching him. I do not have a 1″ thumb. I only eat fish that are big enough to filet. This little fellow was pretty enough to be photographed and swam away quickly when released.
