Hmm, that sounds cool. I am an avid fisherman and always will throw my cast net for hours, I would like to bring home some shad, but I think the water in my tank is too high so I wont. I will most likely have some pics of about 3 5 gallon pails full of minnows, and other bait fish while I am sitting on the peir.

Any one else here like to fish and keep fish?

My dad used to catch baby brook trout and put them in his tank. They all invariably picked up carpet surfing as their favorite sport.

Of course ff, I apologize if I didnít make it clear to begin with Ė the only reason I do catch fish is because itís within Hawaii state law. After our conversation a couple of days ago I also decided to pick up an informational pamphlet to hopefully further what I believed was true. Itís illegal to set traps that are left unattended and what not, however it is legal to catch fish with hand-nets, although you are allowed no more then 4-5 per dive. I couldn't agree more, it is important to know the state law before trying to attempt to catch fish.

I have never caught more fish then I needed nor have I attempted to sell them.

In our conversation the other day we talked about how you found it odd that while your not allowed to take coral/live rock in Hawaii, you can take fish. And I thought about it somewhat, and even looked on my own practices of obtaining fish. I agree that while it hurts the environment (however small) to take even one Tang or Butterflyfish, I feel that it canít possibly hurt more then practices in places such as the Philippines where tropical aquarium fish are caught by the bucket-load.

And yeah, heh Ė I donít think youíll be able to catch tropical fish on the North Carolina coast..

I am going to Ocean City at the end of this month. Does anyone think there will be any fish there that I can put in my reef tank?

I live in Panama City Beach, Flordia, right on the Gulf of Mexico. One of the big reasons I would love a SW tank is because of this. Everytime I go snorkeling and diving I see tons of sea life. When I look at the prices of sw fish I just think how glad I am that I live here and can catch them all in the wild.

Of course I don't have a sw tank so it really doesn't matter. Maybe down the road when I master fw I will move to sw.

I'm going to the keys on a honeymoon in two weeks! I can't wait, I've never been anywhere tropical so it should be cool to see coral reef. Hehehe...maybe that's not such a good idea...I might like what I see and decide, to my new wife's dismay, that I want a reef tank
