Finally back out fishing
« on: July 25, 2016, 02:52:56 PM »
I haven't been out fishing since late May, but yesterday was the first time back out. Took it easy and fished inside the wall out of Long Beach and caught a couple croakers and mackerels, which the mackerels became dog food. :jester:

Then as I was getting ready to leave and I went to reel in, I hooked up with a small juvenile Bat Rey. They're fun to catch but usually get tossed back in, to much work on cleaning them. I know there not a tuna, but they're fun to reel in, especially the bigger ones.  :smile1:

 But basically it was just a day to take the boat out to avoid the heat and smoke and enjoy being outside on the water.

Here's a little clip.  :jester:

I hear you!   45 years ago I was attending Long Beach State and working full time at Seal Beach NWS. I often looked at the Ocean as an escape from the crowds and air pollution and wished I had a boat to go out in.  Being a student the cost was prohibitive, but the vision never left my mind.

Mackerel are a great meal when prepared Japanese style!

Whenever we get down there we have dinner at Walt's.  Love those clams!

I fish for Skate (rays) every April and May.
To clean them we cut the wings off, dip them in a pot of boiling water, and just peel away the skin.
After that it's a simple matter of pulling out the cartilage and cutting into bite-size chunks to dip in batter and fry.
Just like scallops!!

Salmon King thanks for tip and they are delicious. The wings have such a great taste and make great tacos!

This is a small one I caught last year that we turned it into a few tacos  :smile1:
