2 New Fish For The "Bonefish Flats" outing

Postby Yellowstone7 » Sun May 15, 2011 8:28 pm

Hi Everyone:

Here are two new fish for the forthcoming "Bonefish Flats" outing.

This is the Tiger Grouper which grows to about 36 inches.

Here we have a tremendously powerful fish, the Great Barracuda which can grow to immense size, a truly impressive predator and fighter:

Thought these fish will add some excitement to the new outing. Hope you like them. :P

Hi Stanley

Like the new fish, but why create another Barracuda when we already have one.

I don't know if you and Martin have sussed out the strength and stamina settings but i have now gave up. I created a beta test outing to try out the settings but now cannot land anything.

The idea of 6 pics i like. Especially when taking your own photos.

Regards

Hi Barns:

Good to see you back on the Forum. It has been a long time. :P

Re: the Barracuda question. There are many different species of Barracudas. This is from Wikipedia:

Sphyraena waitii Ogilby, 1908.


The Great Barracuda lives in the Tropical America seaboard and grows to an immense size. There are smaller and bigger Barracudas around the world but the "Great Barracuda" is unique and found in the new outing location. Hope this answers your question. :P

Again from Wikipedia:

the Great barracuda <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_barracuda>, picuda or becuna (S. picuda), ranging on the Atlantic coast of tropical America from North Carolina <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Carolina> to Brazil <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazil> and reaching Bermuda <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bermuda>. Other barracuda species are found around the world. Examples are the California <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California> Barracuda (S. argentea), extending from Puget Sound <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puget_Sound> southwards to Cabo San Lucas <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabo_San_Lucas>; the Indian barracuda (S. jello) and the black-finned or Commerson's barracuda (S. commersoni), from the seas of India <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India> and the Malay Peninsula <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malay_Peninsula> and Archipelago <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archipelago>.

There are still some problems with the V.131 fish strength and stamina setting and I think Paul will work this out when he gets a little free time this week?. I can land the smaller fish ok but anything over 40 inches takes a long long time to land. I have not been able to land the bigger fish in V.131.

The six pictures is a great feature and I have been playing around with it a little. Quite an improvement over the 3 frames in many of the scenes. It allows setting in each of the scenes and I think this is great.

Regards,

Stanley
