Fishing Simulators and River Monsters

I recently stumbled upon a new tv series called “River Monsters“.  The episode I first watched was when the angler was fishing in Florida for bull sharks in inland rivers.  He caught a few small sharks but then caught a huge grouper.  Grouper is a fish that looks pretty prehistoric and not particularly appealing.  Since that episode, we have been watching regularly!

If you’re not familiar with grouper, its typically a saltwater fish and can get rather large. The one caught in this episode was estimated at 300 pounds!  I don’t remember anyone back home catching one that big, but you never know.   The only reason grouper would be in those waters was if the water was brackish   I grew up in Louisiana and we sometimes ate fried grouper, which I remember to be a very tasty fish.  If you’re looking for a good recipe, try Paula’s Deans Video for Fried Grouper Fingers.  Since I now live in the Atlanta area, getting good fresh fish is a little more challenging.  I now have a quest to find the best fish market south of Hartsfield Airport!

But if you want to practice your fishing skills, there’s two arcade games for you!  If you want to challenge your skills with freshwater fishing, try Sega Bass Fishing Simulator.  Not a freshwater angler?  There’s a saltwater version with the Sega Marine Fishing Simulator.   We did carry these fishing games years ago but have rotated them out of our current inventory.
