Try fishing in the Filipino market.
Tilapia are a garbage fish that are not fit for human consumption, and I refuse to eat them. Do you also eat carp?
Since I live in Arizona, I'm a trout man myself. But I used to live in Florida, and I agree with coopaloopa:
- "there are plenty of better fish to be catching and eating then tilapia. I wouldn't waste the time".
But if you insist on catching them, raw sewage, or maybe dog turds, would probably make good bait. In commercial fish farms, they scoop the poop out of the tanks that bass and trout are raised in, and they throw it into the talipia tank as food. No kidding. I saw the guy do it on Dirty Jobs, on the Discovery channel.
I dont eat Tilapia because I saw an episode of Dirty Jobs where they said they were used in the last stages of sewer water to eat the crap out of them. Its a carp and you cant spell crap without carp
Despite what the resident "food snobs" seem to think, I like Tilapia. Sounds as if you (the OP) do as well. Tell 'em you aren't "wasting their time", you're doing as you wish with yours. Just that much more for us.
I could go for some Snook right now...or some Lane Snapper....God I miss the States right now
Grubs try grubs.
Although I've only caught them fly fishing, the most 'efficient' way I've seen it done was with a cast-net. Get an 8' 1/2" mesh net and you can likely get dinner for six in one toss.
They are always biting here:
SNOOK !! Now there's a good eatin' fish that few people know about, and they live in Florida too.
There's no better tasting fish in the world than Snook. I wish we had them in Arizona, but they're a brackish water fish.
Have you? If caught in clean water, no problem.
But even in clean water it's a bottom feeder and a poop eater.
And if you're fishing in clean water, why not fish for something better while you're there?
How to Catch Tilapia....Anyone Know??
Sex without a condom?
Cast net . . . we used to catch them in a lake by the house like that .
Nightcrawlers, grubs, and bread. I used to catch them in Puerto Rico. It's funny how so many food snobs will turn their nose up at Tilapia but wouldn't hesitate to feast on catfish.
Its also the only fish that almost got me arrested when I was a young teen....It was out of season and I wasnt paying attention to the date at the time...would land alot of Reds of my parents dock though
They are originally from africa and their main diet is hippo poop.
i used to have a blast catching tilapia with a frog gig and a spotlight at night.
I dont fish, but good luck with it. If I did fish, I'd be out looking for Grouper.
It was a trout line.
"Poop" never tased so good.
It sounds as if many folks here don't have a clue as to what the food they like really eats.
