Jessy, you started his fishamania, remember when we went fishing, Jessica was about 6 and James was about 3.. we were on your boat-not catching much and decided to go to Woody's wharf, we baited there hooks with shrimp, a good bait, as it should be for 12 bucks a pound, and through there lines in the water.. meanwhile we were chatting with an american fisherman about his luck at bonefishing, he was complaining that he had been out with a guide a couple of times at great expense and had cought nothing, just about then we heard a reel screaming as well as James and when the fuss was over James had landed his first fish...a bone fish.. the rest of the week I noticed that guy fishing from Woody's dock. You helped create the fishing monster.

Papashine, in case your son hasn't found the answer to his question yet.

Fish don't have eyelids. They don't need to blink to keep their eyes moist. Sharks don't really have eyelids. The cover that closes over them during a strike is probably for self-protection during the attack.

Octopus can close their eyes.


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
