3 good hits in 15 minutes, couldn't turn or stop them.
All 3 broke off.

Pretty good idea what they were about 5 seconds in.
So handed rod to wife, lol.

Went to 50# leader, hooked up in minutes.

" Here you go hon!"

10 minutes later, she said my arms hurt!

" You almost got him, stay with it!"

Few minutes later, this pops up.

" You KNEW it was a $#@& ray!"

Best part, she couldn't smack me, she had TRex arms from fighting it?

can you eat them?


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Iíve caught a couple stingrays in years past, and they are unbelievably strong fighters. I havenít personally eaten one, but I hear they taste like scallops. In the future, if I can, Iíll clean one if I catch it.




That one looks like a manta ray, although I could be wrong

Fun, but you didn't lose anything of value. I saw an Asian market skin the wings once. Very grainy texture. Whoever said they can substitute skates or rays for sea scallops has probably never skinned and eaten one.

Cow nosed Ray

I tried eating them.
Twice.
Last time was 20+ years ago.
Guy who cooked it SWORE by it, BBQ'd.

Got it down, but didn't want no more, lol.

My first attempt was in the '70s, heard they taste like scallops.
It's skin, meat, cartilage, meat, skin

They are a poor mans Scallops. You cook them just as you would a Scallops, very tasty


Millions of people paying good money for scallops are actually eating cheap stingray, skate, or shark that has been sectioned up by a cookie cutter to look like scallops

My only question is how does one get tired of catfishing?
