The Mangrove Mud Blenny!

Blennies & Gobies can be commonly found in most tropical climates. Most are herbivores while others have fangs to tear off chunks from passing fish. In Hawaii they are called O'opu and are highly valued as bait.

The Blennies being caught here are called Mangrove or Mud Blennies. They often come to the surface. Not sure why? This species is mostly collected in estuary areas on mangrove roots to hiding in sponge & seaweed to hiding in holes in the mud to under rocks. Not a easy fish to surprise but they are catchable.

I hook them on their upper backs between the spine & top fin in the area between the fishes middle to the tail. This keeps it alive that'll draw the attention of passing predators. In estuary areas i find that using Blennies & Crabs make great bait for Bonefish & Trevally.
