Did you gut it first because if you don't, it could make it taste like shit.

Yes.  Skinned it too.  I have never even heard of anyone not gutting a fish before cooking it.

I caught an 8 foot reef shark with my Nikon underwater rig. While the divemaster was swimming away as fast as she could, I was checking my f stop and shutter speed and strobe placements. That gorgeous shark swam right by me, giving me a perfect head shot, then doubled back to give me her other profile. Magnificent!!!

^^ Awesome diving moment Traveler - and all that f-stop talk brings back memories of my younger diving days with the old clumsy Nikonos V gear and strobe.  Getting good pics was such a mission but also such a thrill - when the film eventually came back from the developing process :laugh:  My wife and I had a crazy adrenalin dive with eight massive ragged tooth sharks doing a daisy chain around us for 30 minutes - only to find afterwards the film hadn't wound on inside the dam camera.  The kids today are so spoilt with compact digital autofocus stuff  ;)  I'm travelling OS for a month but when I get back I'll pull out some underwater slides and maybe post a few scans of them.

I second this, sharks are rather awesome.

I would post them if I could, but I'm away from home for two months, and all my slides are far, far away. I'll try to remember when I return to my home base at the end of november.  :)

Yes.  Skinned it too.  I have never even heard of anyone not gutting a fish before cooking it.

Well, I have some "backwoods" relatives who do it for certain types of fish, like catfish (the smaller ones), and trout. They say it "adds to the flavor". But they remove the guts after cooking (but eat it as well). I tried it once, I said to a distant cousin that it tasted like shit and he replied, "Well, so does that snail shit those frenchies eat but you don't hear me complaining about it!" I sort of agreed. I think escargot tastes like shit, too.

;)

Of course they rib me about liking octopus...so...whatever.

Even more gross, though I tend to dislike raw food I do prefer octopus raw. I also like squid but cooked.

This is worse than the nerd-bait thread about model trains. Boys and their toys. &)

Don't start with me--I know some women like to fish, too. Still makes this a nerd-bait thread. And those are some of the ugliest fish I have ever seen! :P

It wasn't exactly a fish, but I once caught a flarbarg on the moon of hypopol during the first marflarb of flooper in universe # 299,792,458. It was at least fithopla meters long.

I enjoy shrimp more than anything.

I love it when I tell people in person that I've eaten dolphin. They say, "How could you eat Flipper?", or something similar. I asked one cousin who was aghast at the thought of eating a dolphin, I asked her, "Ever have mahi mahi?" She replied she did, and I said that that was made from dolphin. I dragged it on until she began to cry, and then explained that it's a fish, a dolphinfish and not an actual dolphin related to the porpoise, or whale.

She hit me and called me a "meanie".

Good times, good times.

:D

I can't just use my powers in a way that can be detected. What about free will?

You wouldn't remember the truth. Besides, it's not like you can prove it. There's no evidence, other than My testimony. And, as you know, testimonies are unacceptable by themselves as proof. You need evidence to support them. There is none. I don't leave any trace of My existence, other than My Word, and My Word is not accepted by anyone during the first few billion years of a universe.
