    It made me really sick to my stomach to see such a gorgeuos animal die. They tried to put it back, but it was already gone.

    nice lokking fish and I commend your's and everyone else's effort to try and get the fish back into the water rep's for you.
     

  3. So thats what your doing on your spare time suds. Catching the big ones eh? Did they call you out to help with that or was it close to base? Too bad you had to see one of those die. It would have been a better day to see it live. At least the Kuwaiti people care about saving life too.

    I've always wanted to swim with one of those giants. It's a shame it died but that's part of nature. It's strange seeing so many pleasure boats running around with all that is happening over there.

    Well this is southern Kuwait, so you would be amazed how nice it is. Just can't drink alcohol :confused2:

    Yeah Cade, one of the interpreters I work with ran into the office telling me about it. So we went down there, and the Kuwaiti's had it in the water, but it was already gone.

    Yep, "IMSHALLAW" Arabic for God's will

    Thanks

    Hey Darrell, I'm in the wierdest place you would think to see Air Force personnel. We run an Army camp, that's located inside a Kuwait Navy Base, that is inhabited by 75% U.S. Navy personnel, but the Army Transportation Command has more ships here. :confused2:

    I'm assigned to the Army right now, which is obviously different, but they love the fact that the Air Force is running their camp. :smile2:

    Well Hey neighbor!
    I was over there in '03, as a contractor, and lived right in the neighborhood, Juli'a, right next to the Kempinski, name of the place was Shali Shehab. (forgive my spellings, it has been a couple years)
    Have you found the neighborhood Pizza Hut yet? They deliver! But alas no pork..

    Have someone send you a rod, there are fish to be caught there! but the all rods I found in that country were junk. And how the locals will laugh at you for using a rod! I used to get the strangest looks.
    At night I used to catch some sort of bottom feeding sheepshead with like, shellcrushing teeth (think they ate the snails) on shrimp and a kind of Needlefish in the day time on the local baitfish (get a castnet).
    Kuwait is the place where I discovered when it is too hot to fish! Daytime 135 with 100% humidity is too hot to fish! Should be like that about now. I feel for you. LOL!
    those "in the know" said the fishing on the coast was better in the winter.

    We either made our own "hooch" (bread yeast, sugar, fruit juice) or got what they called Seddiki from the Indians, beware of that stuff, I think they make it with formaldehyde. It will make you stupid and get you busted.
    Cheap Scotch and Bourbon are available on the black market but very expensive. Beer is well nie impossible but if you know embassy personal it can be had.
