Gunners version of vegan 8 Sept

Postby Fish-cador » Sat Sep 08, 2018 7:11 pm

Hit gunners but I arrived late at 8AM. The baitos did good from 7 to 8AM as I was told. Their buckets were loaded already when i hit the sand. Some monsters in the mix. First 5 min and I got 2, missed a big take, dropped one but nothing else after that.

The 2 I caught were round with belly obviously full. They were full.....with sand. I have never seen anything like this before. Has the fish gone "sand-igan"? Not a single trace of fish in the guts.

Why are they eating sand? Can they expel the sand or will they eventually sink and die?

Photos to follow...if i can make the file size small.

The only thing I can think of is that it could be a method of purging intestinal parasites?
Just a guess on my part.... google wasn't helpful

They knew you were coming so I’m guessing they’d try end their lives before you caught them. Must of been your wise words to keep them going :a_goodjob:

Don't drag them along on a rope behind you when walking/wading :-)
