EdH, To the sea again?

EdH, keep your mouth closed while swimming in the ocean. Do not swallow the sea water.
Here?s why:

Kind of amazing.

For you cable people:

From www.unmuseum.org

"Rogue Nature: Squid - Mexican fishermen call the Humbolt squid the "Red Devil" and tell tales of squid who pull fishermen from their boats and kill them. To get to the bottom of this legend, Dave dons a chain mail suit and scuba gear to catch these predators in action On the Discovery Channel: APR 17 2007 @ 10:00 PM APR 18 2007 @ 02:00 AM APR 20 2007 @ 08:00 PM APR 21 2007 @ 12:00 AM APR 28 2007 @ 05:00 PM ; ET/PT."

I think "Dave" is the same guy who swam with them at the end of the PBS show (which was a repeat, BTW).

Tasty little critter!
by grimgraphix / April 10, 2007 3:42 AM PDT

I buy packages of dried cuttlefish at the local international food store. The little guys average about 2 inches long and are kind of like eating a fishy flavored jerky.

Very tasty chopped up and sprinkled over soba noodles with a bit of white miso and wakame sea weed.

Grim, Here we go again sharing recipies?
by taboma / April 10, 2007 2:20 PM PDT

Good one at that.
The best squid I have ever had in my life was in a Turkish seaport.


I watched these fishermen string shrimp onto their fishing line that was some 100 yards long. Drop their line off their boat and collect all the squid.
Our restaurant that we visited bought their catch and served their dish to us later. Very tender and very fresh. Cannot get any fresher than that.
I loved the CESME Port. Pretty picturesque place also. Check it out on the internet. Very windey narrow dirt road into that port as it should be. Fabulous inexpensive restaurant 50 feet directly across from the harbor waterfront. One day the ocean seawater was at the restaurants doorsteps after a storm. We loved it. Kind of tricky to find a parking spot.

Fresh Grouper was my favorite. Looked like an orangy pink small fish.
The restaurant had a full ice packed display of fresh fish to order from inside their restaurant. You picked the fish you wanted and the restaurant cooked it for you. Whole Sea Bass was another great fish to eat. Eat the meat inside the head. Now that's good eats!

I am getting hungry thinking about realy fresh boat fish, good wine and Turkish beer. Rocchi is something else. A Turkish tradition that tastes like UZZO. Dam powerful!

Thanks, Grim, for the recipe,

Grim, Want to go fishing for those beasties with me?

Scuttel Fish

We can go after Scuttel Fish and land a really big one, How about a 200 LB.?

Grim, you have to gaff that beast and get that into the boat for me.
That photo would be priceless and we could sell it to National Geographic.
On the other hand?

The photo caption reads: On the left are what remains of Grim trying to gaff the 200 Lb. Scuttel Fish. On the right hand side are the remains of Kevin Smith, after trying to help Grim land that beast.
The Scutel Fish bit off Mr. Smith?s tentacles.

Their widows can be reached in Brussels, Belgium, where they are recovering from their loss. Their next stop is Paris, France to try squid. :

Links to CNET
by taboma / April 11, 2007 3:37 PM PDT

Why do all those ads appear with my link to the last post to Grim?
Never had them appear before with Image Shack. New one to me.

Can some of you clue me in. Is it because of Start Stumbling which I downloaded last week?
I am cluless. And, thanks for explaining it to me if you can.
WEIRD to view. Also, how can I eliminate all the extra stuff from Image Shack that we view now??
Are we stuck with this stuff forever??
I can only download an image file using Safari on my Mac. According to Comcast.net, Safari and MS Internet Explorer are the only Browsers that are supported. Not Firefox! Interesting to say the least!
Thanks for all help.
Maybe it was the Scuttel Fish that did it!

It is all Marks fault introducing the Scuttel Fish to us!!!
I was happy before viewing that beast!
I even like to view snakes from Mark.

I like "Conan The Barbarian" movie and all those snakes also.
I could watch that movie forever. The special effects were wonderful at the time. Arnold was great and that woman warrior actress was sensational. Sound track was good also. Great Movie!

A threatening image for sure!
by grimgraphix / April 12, 2007 2:43 AM PDT

I have total respect for any critter in tip top shape and in its' own environment.

That... and a healthy dose of fear. Wink

I will leave the calamari fishing to the Italian restaurant down the street!
