Default Happy New Year 2017 from the beach

Decided to spend New Years morning on the beach..caught some nice King Fish and mackerel. Happy New Years to everyone!! I save the heads and carcass to make more fish emulsion.

chunks of Ballyho or Spanish sardines...sometimes I catch smaller ones on a lure called a Krocodile Lure.....make sure you use leader..they have tons of sharp teeth and will cut your line in seconds when they hit and run.

Yes, I eat the fish and share with others. I give some to a friend and he smokes it for me in his smoker. King fish is great when smoked.

King fish is about the best smoked fish I have ever tasted. Enjoy.

Somehow I thought they were being turned into chum.

I love chub mackerel.
Stopped buying salmon.
Over fished and over priced.

Which beach as there are vehicles parked on the sand and did not know of any local areas to do so and would love to know to take the kids. Also, the 3rd fish up from the bottom is a wahoo and if caught from the beach would be an extremely rare catch, congrats.
