    My buddy McLean caught this a while back and I just wanted to post this picture cause I think it's a pretty good pic.

    Thats a cool looking ray. Was he fishing for them, or was it caught by accident?:0a28::0a23:

    He wasn't fishing for them, it's just one of the great things about surf fishing. You can catch anything on anything. That same guy has hooked two 100+lb tarpon in the surf. One of them hit two huge mullet and the other took a sand flea about the size of your thumb nail. Surf fishing is about the only type of saltwater fishing I really, really like b/c it's almost like catfishing. Every time you get a hit you never know what it is or how big it's going to be.

    Yeah, they are actually pretty good to eat. I've had them a couple of times and it was pretty good. Just marinated them and grilled em. I just don't like that big piece of cartilage that runs right through the center of the meat.

    I'll believe I'll stick to eating catfish. We don't catch many of the other here in the TX Panhandle and I'm glad.

    They are so good eating that the crooked sea food vendors are punching rounds out of them and selling them for sea scallops.
