Nothing has changed. There are no predators and their population just keeps multiplying year after year. You saw 11 rays. I saw hunderds of rays in the South River last week. It;s a problem..........Garyleft out of bear creek 6am saw 3 rays before I got to the patapso saw 8 more on my way to the baltimore lighthouse never seen that many before, whats changed
NO. definitely not. Bay scallops are very tasty and tender. Some people eat skate wings but they are still tough. I have heard of a few eating rays but I tried years ago and it was awful..............GaryIs it true that if you buy "bay" scallops they are actually circle chunks of ray wings? Bay vs Ocean scallops. Bay is a lot cheaper than ocean at the seafood markets.
Put a knife right between their eyes. We were fishing at CBBT for cobia and hooked many rays. Reel to boat, stab them between the eyes and cut the line. Bring lots of hooks!........ GarySkip - how do you safely kill them? Yesterday I managed to drag one to the boat with 2 of my parachutes stuck in its wing. Pulled the first parachute loose while holding the leader of the other one, and then cut the skin to free the 2nd lure and away he went and I had my 2 lures.
