Out at 9th Line this morning.
Fishing 25’ FOW, first line down is a Silver Slab Grabber tipped with white plastic tiny worm and whack.... WTF a Goby ?

Right back down and whack again. Another Goby ?!?

4 Gobys in a row. All the same size. What was surprising was How hard they were hitting it on the fall.

After those, didn’t see them again. Rest of the morning was a snooze fest, 2 borderline eaters and half dozen dinks.

Gobys met their maker, in a Ziplock Bag At the bottom of a garbage can.

On another note, waking out wasn’t to bad. Snow was about 2-3” with a few drifts here and there. After the weekend traffic it was easy enough to find a packed down path out.

Yep. They come from the Black Sea and they are really good. A white a soft meat despite their ugly look. And yes, they bite anything, sometimes even the empty hook. Shrimp is their favorite food.
Even they come from a salty water they got accommodated to fresh water too.

They're good fry, easy to catch. Not sure their origin is Black Sea, but they are plenty there. A lot larger size.

Black Sea kid.

I haven't caught one or seen one in any of the fish I've caught yet. How big do they get?

I'm thinking they would make a great white fish bait, should have walked out to 80ft and tried fresh Goby on them

better read the regulations. you can't do that.

Got my curiosity up so went looking and found this. Not too sure I'd eat them after reading the botulism bullet, mind you it doesn't say not to.

I agree if you catch one don't release it back in.

It’s not an option. They’re an invasive species and the regulations mandate you to destroy them!

After reading the article I think the gobys were introduced to fight zebra mussels by authorities... it is conspiracy... the project went out of hands.
