Let's hear your wild stories...

What's the strangest thing you ever found in a fish's gut???

I'll start... once there was a guy eating fried chicken in a boat drifting next to us for fluke. A few passes later in the same area I landed I nice 5lb fluke. Later that evening I found the bones of entire chicken wing in its gut with some meat and skin still attached!

Okay, let's hear some stories...

Well, I'm no shark fisherman, so I don't have any stories about license plates or toilet seats.

This one's about when I was between boats, fishing from plum beach, anchored up in my li'l old rubber raft.

I gut hooked a fluke, and ripped his innards out when I pulled the hook. Kept the fish & threw the guts overboard. About 3 fish later, I catch a fluke, unhooked him, and he spit the guts up on the floor. Just to satisfy my curiosity, I caught two more fluke on the same gutz!

thefishingfreak, years ago at the Conny there used to be a guy that worked there that came over to me while I was fishing the grist mill and pulled a fly box out of his pocket. He said try one of these. At which he then took a white marabo streamer out of the box and tied it on my line. I handed him the pole and he flipped the fly and, with a serious face and a steely determination watched the white fly float on the surface. Then he added, " Make it look like a cigarette butt ". All said without a chuckle or a grin !!! Now anyone who thinks this guy was a kook should try to fish the grist mill before he decides. Often, meticulously tied flies are ignored while floating cigarette butts are smashed on the surface right in front of you. Doesn't make sense to me either. The wildest thing found in the stomach of a fish had to be my brother's 28 lb. bass at Montauk which had a full grown (As big as they get...at least 4lbs.) sea robin in his stomach. Maybe not as odd as the others but it was so big that I'm sure that sucker put up one heck of a fight in the gullet and into the stomach...sick!!!

Bass

F/F...I had a bass also with a good size sea robin in the gut.

I really didn't think they would take the birds because of all the spines on it.
I guess if they are hungry enough they will eat anything. Heard plenty of stories with flounder but not the birds.

Speaking of spiney things, Bass eat Lobsters, years ago they were even used as bait.

Last year I was shark fishing on the Burnside, and caught a bunch of Bluefish that were spitting up hundreds of Sea Horses.

STRANGEST THING

A few years back,late spring,Ling fishing on the Seawolf,at the end of the trip,I always have my Ling filleted. Out of a fairly good size fish popped a 6 oz. sinker!!!
Was thanking God I didn't win the Pool with this fish,nobody would have ever believed that the fish apparently sucked it down. Think I would have been tossed into the Drink!!!

Well ... It wasn't that crazy ... but last year I caught a normal 18-19" Fluke by no means BIG ... I noticed a large bulge in it's belly ... and to my surprise .. the stupid Fluke ate a full size Blue Claw .... with nice big horns .... talk about being hunger ... that had to hurt!!!
