On the other size.

Does size matter? Yes, if one orange weighs 1,150 Kgrs. :shock: is impossible to sell it. You can see my hat to compare.

That is one big orange.

You can make a lot of orange juice with it.

It´s curious. Two records in a day. My son has just come back at home with the biggest octopus I´ve ever seen. He was fishing with his cousins with the rod. I´ve never fished a octopus with a rod.
I´m going to eat it with my brother that will come back from England for Chrismast. :)

Are the oranges as good when they're that big? I remember getting navels from Florida yrs ago that were big, not that big, but big, and they were very good. Those are navels right?

NAVEL, NAVEL very right.

A variety from Florida. And, all of them, little and big are sugar.

Abe,
That is some good looking Octopus your son caught. I haven't seen one that size since the time I spent in Italy during the 1950's.

I can just taste it now, done in a nice batter with a light hint of garlic and cooked in butter, Oh wow, my mouth is just watering for a taste.

Beautiful looking oranges, hope you have a bumper crop this year.

orange nice. Octo cooool. I have caught squid w/ rod and reel(very agressive predator squid-try taking it off!) Octo are usually too smart for rod and reel. Was it at nite? Son did a Great job and it will taste great grilled w/ some rioja! Must have  been an unusual fight too.

I think that was so complicated as to take out a great stone from the sea. But my son is telling me a new version of "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea" by Verne.

I fish squids too (finishing september), using potera. And cuttlefish with my snorkel and an acuatic-lamp during the night, only with my hands. I live in a rich coast.

I cook the octo boiled and them adding salt, olive oil and cayenne. Mmmmm, my God.

Love the links.         Better Jules Verne novel than a Peter Benchley Novel!

I have had octo boiled in wine(for hours) than grilled. I have had Galecian style as well. love Spanish and portugese seafood styles. YUMYUMYUM.

Abe, the potera, how does it work, are those shiny metal things on one end some type of barb or something similar that catches the squid or do you add a hook of some sort?

Myself, I love fried calamari with a little hot sauce and tartar,ummmmmm good!

The squid is a vicious predator. At nite, put on boat lites. You'll see the squid around. They move faster than you can so just jig the metal jig near them. Usually no bait is needed. I just squirt shedder crab oil on the jig.They will attck so quick you dont see it. Once on the deck, the fun begins. They have a beak that will give you stitches. Thier suckers will pull skin off. Wait a few minutes for them to exhaust themselves and carefully take off. I use something similar called a sabiki rig. Fresh squid is awesome bait! Just be acreful they really hurt when they get a hold of your finger or whatever. Oh yeah, they'll squirt ink all overe the place too.

My question may or may not have been answered by Konasdad, about the potera, if you need to add a hook or the shiny end is what gets them. I think it was answered, they attack the lure and the metal thingys snare them. Watch out for the beek, suction cups, and ink.

The potera is a plumb line with hooks. But they are not fish hooks because are not sharpen. The squids, cuttlefish or octopus that you can capture are hugged to the potera while you are rewinding. If you stop, the cephalopod can get away, free.

Yes JP. They sort of get stuck on a "hook-like" metal barb. Sort of like a paper clip bent to make a wall hook. Sabiki rigs have tiny little hooks(size 20's or so) inside a tiny little feather teaser. Sometimes a little piece of bait is added. Almost anything fishy that will stay stuck. Its the sent really. Really watch out for the beak. They can jet themselves onto you pretty freakin quick too.

That doesn't make you feel bad, that they hug the lure? They apparently are love starved creatures that just want to hug. Hug, hug, hug your way to good beekeeping.

Abejaruco, that is one mighty fine big orange.  Wow.

Look at your little man!!!!  He is holding that octopus so proudly (and I see he has an orange on the counter behind him).  I bet he was extremely proud to have caught this great big octopus, yea!!!!  Good for him, he will be a great fisherman.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day.  Cindi

P.S.  Abejaruco.  I did not realize this before.  You do not speak English?  You use a translation program on your computer?

It does an excellent job of translation if this is so.  I see your posts are clearly written and there is no miscommunication of what you want to tell us.  Wonderful, yea!!!!!  Cindi

Abejaruco.  You are welcome.

My Brother-in-Law is from Chile.  He speaks Spanish and has been in Canada a long time, about 25 years.  His English is good.

My Sister very often corresponds on the e-mail with his family.  She uses a program where she types in a sentence in English and pushes a button and it is translated into Spanish.  She then copies this sentence into the e-mail and it is copied into the e-mail sent to Chile.  It is an excellent program.  But.....this is funny.   Sometimes the sentence is very strange how it is translated.  So she must be very careful about how she words sentences.  Sometimes his family in Chile cannot understand what she has meant to say.  She has told me of some things and it makes that smile come to my face, hee, hee,  :) :) :)

You do well at expressing your thoughts and your English is pretty good, your site you go to that helps you is also good.  Yea!!!!!!!  Have a wonderful, great day, wishing that I had a little bit of your beautiful and warm weather  :) :) :)  Cindi
