apparently some fish fillets came to life when lemon juice was poured on them? :shrug:

freaky... not back to life, exactly, but some sort of post-mortem spasming. Looks like the heads have been cut off but the fish are otherwise pretty much intact?

I caught some largemouth bass one time and we cut the heads off and gutted them. We were busy cleaning up the meat when all of a sudden one of the heads started opening and closing its big mouth. Pretty creepy.

yeah, looks like the lemon juice may have triggered some nerves to go off. odd.

Hoplos sometimes start jumping around in the pot when being cooked.

Oh gawd. That was the creepest thing ever. Never would have thought that.

My dad used to kill turtles and cut the meat up in chunks for soap and they would jump around for a long time. But never saw fish do that.

Dang, this gives me a few ideas

I work with a few guys that could use some leamon juice pourd on them. Based on how they work, I think they pasted a few years ago

When I do deep sea fishing for black fish on party boats, the mates will fillet the fish and throw the carcas back in the water and I've literally seen these things swim away, it's wild. :ssuprised:

There is only so much I'm gonna believe, show me the video. C-Dub :hmm3grin2orange:

Lemon is interesting because with the right materials for anodes and cathodes it can briefly power a bulb so not so surprising that that might trigger nerves which ultimately carry a weak electrical current.

Oh man I'm totally serious! They swim away after being fillayed, I would imagine they don't last much longer then a few moments, but when they hit that water I swear on everything holy those things swim straight down!

yes, we've done this aswell. if you fillet them just right they can swim away looking like x-ray tetras. probably don't last long though as stated above.

Thanks for coming to my rescue crispy thumbs2:
I searched and searched for a you-tube video of it and was unsuccessful. :sconfused:

PS-I'm with LH, I've watched this like a hundred times and it still creeps me out
