Haha! I think I might catch one of shags one day accidentally! They are kind of nuisances! A boat? Did you mean like an RC boat? A real boat might be a little bit difficult to catch but if you can manage that, it will be a great catch haha!
Real boat, on one of my first outings with the new-to-me Alvey reel. Ripped almost all the mono off, leaving me with a bunch of stretched mono and a blood blister under a fingernail that took a few weeks to go. Unfortunately, they didn't wrap the line around their prop.
Last shag was in front of a shocked holiday weekend phalanx of beach-goers. Wasn't pretty.
Great white was a 3hr epic adventure.
Gannets are just a PITA. From a kayak I just don't see them coming but the sound as they impact the water behind me is unmistakable, leaving just a moment or two of reaction time to get my livie out of their beaks before they surface and swallow.
Hahahaha! I remember now we also caught a bird(oystercatcher) when we took the line out with our drone. It was not actually catching but she wrapped the line around her and we had to slowly pull her to the shore and safely released her!
While fishing for red fish in the Sabine Lake, I met a guy while fishing with my daughter. We all three caught and released several bulls. A couple weeks later we coincidentally all ended up fishing together at the same pier. I had a bite (gafftop 🙄) and also snagged a leader someone had lost. It was the guy's custom Houston Astros leader he had lost a few days prior. He was amazed and grateful. I knew it was his based on the weights, hooks and beads he uses.
How did you cook your weirdest one? Did you prepare in any special ways? Rays are pretty unique to eat, right? Because of the ammonia taste. Your one looks even more unique 😉. It must have been an interesting and exciting catch, that one!
