    @Bonzai - Looks like you guys are having a fun day at the beach! Great to see you asking for ID as you catch and don't leave it til it's too late. I'm interested to know how did you catch the eel?

    Hi Chas. It was fun!!! The eel was actually just a by luck. We were catching blennies etc, and found it in a pool of water inbetween rocks...and if you know my sister, nothing gets away!!! believe me. She will try for hours untill she gets it.

    Why you ask?

    That's awesome. Was just wondering, I know they're very intelligent creatures and not really found in "open" water - ie they normally stay in their caves so very well done!
