My daughter (Krisgo) and her family are on family road trip vacation. They headed out Wednesday. Their first stop was on Destin Florida after a night somewhere in Mississippi. On Destin Beach they collected a cup of oil “sea turds” but apparently it wasn’t too bad – yet. They did a little fishing and my son-in-law caught this
sand shark guitarfish (below). After a day in Destin they ran into the tail of Hurricane Alex and got pretty wet, so they headed east to Jacksonville. They stayed there a couple of nights and are heading up towards Savannah Georgia on Friday.

Wow, would I love to fish there. Have fun Krisgo and family.
I’ve never seen one of those, kinda looks like it has a happy little face. That’s not oil dripping out of it’s little mouth, is it? OR is that not a mouth…
Bella, If you ever have reason to come this way, I live in Pensacola. Could “hook” you up with some fishing
Thanks Donna. I absolutely would love that. A message is on the way.
Sorry to tell you, but that is no sand shark. It is a guitarfish, It’s in the Ray family. (http://research.myfwc.com/features/view_article.asp?id=28404)
Land Shark are a very tasty and tender fish. Check out this recipe.
thats a really weird looking fish
Waving hello from Jacksonville via the Intertubes!
We were thinking maybe it had a ray’s mouth, but we were just guessin’.
Thanks for well wishes! Now off to Charleston, SC…
