The minnows around my dock are biting swimmers. Not just a tiny nibble but a bite. Drawing blood. And they zero in on a nipple or a mole. What is this? Never happened like this in my 25 years. Any ideas??? (Besides stay out of water)
We have never seen them either but we met them in Parker Creek when we took a quick dip. We live on Sandy Creek and have never seen them... or even heard of them. I did not get nibbled -- but my son in law had a zit on his back that they rather liked. And they kept at him until he got out. If you need debridement it's a good way get it done.
Rub catfish bait on your buddy's legs and arms and enjoy your swim. It's like having a scuba knife when you dive in salt water. It offers no defense against sharks but you can juke your dive buddy with it and you can swim back to the boat while they go after him.
