    I never saw a sailfin with that bubble guts... The thing I caught and thought was a killifish was probably that minnow. It had that pattern.

    It’s 2018 boyz, water temp is currently 55 degrees, but will soon be back in the 70’s.

    This means better fishing and collecting in Galveston.

    I’m ready for it to. This was a brutal winter. Looking forward to warmer weather.

    Chris let me know when ur ready. I’ll meet you down there. I’ve been in Galveston every weekend either surfing or fishing.

    I still know the honey hole for blenny’s with all 3 species available. I did let my monster blenny go in the exact same place I caught him, so he’s there!

    Thats a great video. Still have that super nice splotch hammer that split from 3 heads to about 12. Send me a pm. It's growing well and I'll frag it. It was the size of a golf ball now about a baseball.

    Man, I’d love to have a piece. Both my tanks are dry. Moving soon and will get one up after the move. :-)

    Is there any rules and regs on keeping animals you catch and keeping them in aquariums?
