    I've never seen just one We were using squid and chicken.
    My dad cought a Dogfish , too. I think that's like a little shark. I never rise before 11:30 so I missed that.

    We were in the panhandle.... Aren't there lots of bays?

    Edit: The biggest looked like this one but bigger.

    The "nose" was triangular. I remember it had a barb so it wasn't a skate.

    Everytime I fish in a bay I catch them. Not the ocean, though.

    Once I caught a piece of driftwood, atleast 20 pounds, covered in huge orange gorgonians. Would have looked SO good in my reef, but right before i could get it high enough to net, SNAP!

    Sting ray is pretty good to eat. You knwo when you go to red lobster or other seafood place and order scalops? Well, not all of those are scalops. Only a certain percentage of them. The other percent is stingray IIRC. I learned that in Bio class. If the mucles fibers are running up and down its a real scalop it ifs running the other direction then its stingray.

    But killing stingrays just to kill them because they Killed Steve Irwin is rediculous! Its just wrong. People don;t realize these are WILD animals and unpredictable. Steve more than likely didn;t read the animal well enough and got popped. It just happened to be a fatal pop. I;m sorry for his death, but that happens sometimes dealing with wild animals. Those people killing stingrays to kill stingrays need to be arrested!

    I wonder how many stingrays were murdered in the week before he died. I've seen fishermen (never a fisherwoman) be barbaric to things they didn't want to catch. Maybe people are only paying attention now.

    They really aren't that rare to catch. I live on the space coast in Florida and catch them a lot when using live or cut bait. There are some that will actually hit a lure.

    I used to believe that too until I actually ate a stingray (was really poor and hungry). I have seen no evidence that this is actually done.

    I have never EVER tried to pass off stingray for scallops... That's wrong and deceptive. However, I did work for a chef once who passed rabbit off for chicken (jerk chicken salad). We ran rabbit as an easter sunday special and, needless to say, we sold none. We had all this rabbit left over so he made jerk chicken salad.
    Bruce was the most creative chef I ever worked with and speaking of scallops... I'm getting my rear end kicked on the line one night and he walks off line. He starts chopping chocolate and puts in a double boiler. He begins to dip scallops in the chocolate. This is Saturday night! And he's making chocolate covered scallops...
    Whoops, got off subject...

    Killing stingrays for no apparent reason is bad.
