Did you know that according to fishing and herbal lore Anise seed oil is attractive to fish like catfish and trout? We have a new Anise seed oil hard hand soap that makes a great gift or stocking stuffer for the fisherman or fish lover in your life. These soaps were hand stamped and include saponified oils of Coconut, Shea Butter, Extra Virgin Olive oil, Olive oil and Pomace. They were marbles lightly with French green clay and Rhassoul clay. Check out the new Lucky Fisherman's Anise soap at AquarianBath.
The photos below are from our weekend trip to Weeki Wachee Springs. What a beautiful view of the water from the tour boat.
The fishing here was completely for the birds!
The crystal clear blue water drains into the Gulf of Mexico, some 12 miles downstream.
Just down the road in the Gulf of Mexico on Pine Island, the sea birds are sunning themselves.
We didn't try fishing, but I did catch this crab with my bare hands for fun to show the kids.
It took me a while to get up the nerve to do it. Twenty years ago I hunted Dungeness crab by hand in Washington. This is a female blue crab.
