Stalking The Elusive Turdfish

It's harder than it used to be in Boston Harbor.

With a good tide, the Bubble would produce a 200-yard-long slick of brown sludge. “I didn’t care that I had to pick turds or bits of toilet paper off my line. There was actually quite a bit of life there, you know.”

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

Reminds me of my 1st days at CDL. It was early Spring around March. Farmer John had hired me to get things ready for the summer. Naturally, I had fished a few times from the pier, no luck. So on this day, I thought about some freshwater action. Largemouth bass might be spawning in that "small pond" behind the Craft Hut. Yes indeed, you guessed it. I spent about an hour working a small plastic worm in good old Lake Peuw. Drew was kind enough to let me know if I caught something, it'd be a good idea to throw it back! Things clicked real quick for me after I started closely looking at the water. I'm just glad I didn't decide to try wade fishing that day!!
