I do NOT however, like being in the water with fish. I will fish from shore, in a boat or canoe, off a bridge, NOT IN THEIR HABITAT. That is their home, and I do not belong there. There are several people through out the years who have seen me literally "walk on water" to get away from a fish in the river, pond, or other outdoor body of water I might be in. Any overly large, scary looking, or just strange aquatic fish is a NOPEFISH, if you are out "Noodling" in some raging river, that is a NOPEFISH. I guess the irony of this is that one of my all time favorite shows is River Monsters on Animal Planet... I guess as much as these creatures scare the crap out of me, I am amazed by their existence and wish to know more about them, from the shore...Lol
Anyways, the ocean is much more interesting to me than rivers, I also watch all those National Geographic documentaries as well as Shark Week on Discovery. Here are just a few of the strange creatures I have learned of over the years...You may not have any clue they exist! I have captioned the type of fish the picture is of on the bottom of each slide.
I hope you enjoyed these, and maybe were even curious enough to look them up and find more information out about them. A lot of them are very poisonous!
