There are eels on my beach!

Recommended Posts


If you think that's ugly, you should see what an Eastern seaboard "Conger Eeel" looks like. While it's properly referred to as an Ocean Pout, the locals have proclaimed this creature a Conger Eel:

That reminds me of an story of my father and his father in law (my grandad, RIP) when i was a child. They went fishing to the "Minor Sea", wich is basically a salt lagoon near here communicating with the Mediterranean. My dad, from whom i inherited a large pool of goofism genes, caught a conger eel wich wasn´t supposed to be there due to the high salt levels, but it wouldn´t just stay put and tried to bit them both, so he got a hammer from the car and chashed around him until he finished the fish. Told for laughs and memoirs from time to time.

 

Lessons learned: Eels are a dreadful enemy, but nothing you can´t solve with a hammer.
