Another weekend passed with overall poor fishing for most anglers. There was some action from the rough surf — mainly on bull reds and sharks — and from inshore, black drum, hard heads, croaker and a few specks.

Ron Ciaccio turned in one of the better reports. He along with Dallas resident Troy Roberts and Stephen Kamucheka from Zimbabwe, both medical students at the University of Texas Medical Branch, fished the causeway area Sunday.

Many sharks are good eating. Problem is most people don't know what kind they caught. A picture list ( poster ) of local sharks and their table quality is needed. I recal Mako, sand and nurse sharks being called Black tip's. All are good table fare with the Mako being the best. When I tried Bull and Tiger I discarded them due to the strong smell.

Add Gar to list of good table fare. Gar are a big commercial catch in all their sizes and locals. Some resturants feature gar as a speciality. Fried, boiled and grilled. Try them you'll be pleased by how good they are. Flavor is more like chickin than fish.
