Stayed at a hotel down in Port Aransas for a beach trip, and they had a pond out front. The pond was a bit brackish, I think, though I didn't have a hydrometer. I went over to check for some fish, and among the gambusia were a bunch of taller-bodied fry that were pecking at the leaves. Couldn't catch anything big with a fishing pole, so microfishing ensued.
I didn't manage to catch any of the taller-bodied fish with a line, I had to use my trap as an improvised net. I think they were baby flagfish, which explains why they weren't interested in my bait. I did, however, catch a bunch of gambusia, including this tiny fella. Yes, I know the pics aren't great, but you can see the fish's size, the penny, and the hook/line in his mouth.
Gambusia caught on a tiny hook baited with a fragment of white rubber. June 9th, 2015. Anyone caught a smaller fish while microfishing?
