Crazy Coloured Fish (and a Crazy Person!)

Just a brief post today to show you some of the crazily coloured fish I encountered during an afternoons fishing on you know where.

The first is a Bluefish - which is a fish which is blue!  And the second is Surge Wrasse, which really is the most insanely colourful fish I have ever seen!  The guy in the hat? Well, the less said the better!



You can find more pictures of animals from around the world over at Saturday Critters.

Amazing colours. They look like they should be in some exotic fish aquarium.

Ditto on the previous comment. Hope they tasted as good as they looked.

I imagine the wrasse is beautiful eating...the Maori Wrasse are.

Are bluefish good eating, Stewart? I read somewhere that bluefish are called Tailor in Australia, but that bluefish is not at all like a tailor - not in any way...and, I know what tailor look like. I used to catch many tailor during our frequent visits to Fraser Island and off the beach at Teewah and Double Island Point also, when my ex and I lived at the Sunshine Coast

Aha! I just did some further research and here in Aus, the bluefish are also called "blue drummer"; and as far as their eating quality goes...I imagine if upon catching they're treated the same way tailor is when caught....bled, cleaned and filleted immediately...they'd make for excellent eating.

These are so beautiful one would think they were ceramic sculptures created by an artist.

Nature is an amazing artist. Those fish are gorgeous and the crazy person isn't bad looking either. :-)

So, that 'blue' fish is clearly brown, or possibly black?? :)

Love the wrasse, which is actually the 'blue' fish that I asked Ian about (didn't seem to be interested in fish??)

Also, stop telling people about LHI, people may want to go there.

Cheers, Di

These are two of the most beautiful fish I have ever seen. My husband being a fisherman, I called him in to look at them and he agreed. The second one really left him in awe. It was the blue of the first one that did it for me.

Ruth Rieckehoff said...

They are so pretty! I do not want to be cruel but, how they tasted? I imagine they were eaten.

Andrea Priebe said...

Oh my, who knew? Nature is a digital artist :) And there is no explaining the guy in the hat :) Looks like the best kind of fishing to me ... lucky, lucky you!

You should start a contest - would you rather kiss the guy in the hat or the fish he is holding? My wife has already voted but I can't divulge her response!
