I can not belive that there are only 2 fishermen on this list.

I tried sea fishing as well, in the north of Scotland. I went fishing of the coast of Isla, and caught tonnes of stuff. The locals loved us as they were into lobster fishing and they used our catches for bait.

Hi Starman

One more makes three of us! I live in Derby, local rivers are the Trent, Dove and Derwent - plenty of Barbel in all three!!!!

I was led to beleive it was GREYLING that was the most caught fish on the Derwent.

(pleas xcuse my speling)

Hi Jasper

Yes, you are right, there are a lot of greyling in the Derwent, particularly in the upper reaches...Matlock to Darley Abbey. But, there are also plenty of chub, roach and barbel. I think the Derwent on it's day will outperform any other river in the midlands!

Marc - I share you sentiments exactly!

Fishing has got to be compared to watching paint dry!!

Obviously one of my favourite pastimes:D

Frosty mate - GET A LIFE!!

P.S. Where do you go to catch the best chips??

Jasper

The well-deserved fishing trip of this weekend was a wonder for my soul. :)

Even the wife went along! It was the 10-year-old's first off-shore trip, and not a one of us were "chummin" :) None-the-less, the "fish" lived up to his namesake, at about the moment that he landed his 3rd shark, and the deckhand remarked, "Just how many fish have you caught?".

fishy says, "Just put the #6 tag on the critter, it's mine.", deck hand, "NO, how many shark have you brought aboard?"....

fishy says, "Look, my son caught the first shark (his first off-shore catch by the way :D), and this is my second.... :rolleyes: ... maybe third, but we are #6, and all the fish with the #6 tags on 'em are ours!!!!"


(deckhand puts hands on hips and looks out of top of brow)

(fishy has moment of reflection)

fishy inquires, "Is there a limit on these Atlantic (sharpnose)sharks :confused: !! "

(deckhand nods head)

Fishy inquires, "What's the limit :eek: ?".

Deckhand responds, "ONE !!!"

THE "FISH" EXCLAIMS, "Damn, it's time to start drinking BEER!".

___________________________________________________

It was a party boat with 30 poles fishin'. My son's favorite part of the trip, was the bunk-beds in the air-conditioned cabin!!;)

...but he did a good job, and was smiling ear-to-ear when he brought his first shark on board. He got to go into the wheelhouse and take the helm of the 80' boat on the way in!!! What a great day for a young man. :p

We thought we were chartering the LaPesca, but the Dolphin is a much better boat, from which to fish......

After the R&R, I was able to get back in town, and within one hour, straighten out some extra spaghetti at the supermarket 10-door freezer nightmare.


Life is good!

Unfortunately, they could not give me a good price.

Went to MTA.

What are you doing with all that fish? Eat it?

Nothing better than in the Summer having an early afternoon finish and stopping off at the local river, getting the fly rod out and chilling for an hour before heading home.

I remember as a young boy, standing for hours at the harbour fishing and caught nothing but a few crabs (no jokes please). Just then some bloke walked up, cast in and draged out no less than 7 fish with one set of feathers...(~@}{?>^$)

He didn`t even want them! So I took them off him and claimed the catch as mine. (got a quid from my gran for them).

Chillin:) :)

Hey I'm a keen sea fisho too. I used to fish the rivers and lakes back home in Birmingham, which was a few years ago. Now I have my own boat in NZ and fish in the inner gulf in Auckland. In fact we went out last night and caught a few small ones. Another month we will be hitting them hard, mainly Snapper,Kingfish and a few sharks will turn up as normal, which is a real pain ! :(

Tony Weston
18-10-2006, 08:53 PM
Nah, no sticklebacks. I used to love going and get them with my net and jam jar in hand, cool fun.:D

Ah Tenby Harbour..:D
I had my first sea fishing experience there. Fishing off the lifeboat ramp, casting off with feathers for mackerel, went every year as kids, used to stay at Kiln Park Caravan Park, my old man used to gut the fish,and cook them up for tea. Even went fishing on a charter boat called the "Enterprise", always caught mackerel and bass.
Happy happy days. Now live in NZ, have my own boat, and still can't get enough fishing.:)
Cheers

Hi Tony
Yes, I've been there - nice place, as is Hamilton, Aukland, Cambridge, Rotarua etc. We visited about 2 years ago and spent a great New Years day on Snells beach then spent a week looking around after visiting OZ.
My old apprentice lives in Warkworth but he's out the trade now - seems he's got some rather cushy job working on helicopters :) when he's not taking the kids out on the boat.

We're due out again this week :D

Fishings great for relaxing, especially when your catching fish and the weather is good.
Its a good job we are all different.

I'll agree with that one...

Recently sold my boat so am having to practice beach casting now; easy you might think but the new rod is an extra 6ft (2m) compared to what I'm used too.

Never fished in Conn. I fished some Ohio freshwater lakes once with my former father-in-law. It was a fine day simply because I skunked him with two largemouth bass' to his 0.:D

I'm on the outer banks of North Carolina and there is plenty of saltwater and freshwater fare here...more than most could imagine.

I mostly spearfish on wrecks in and around Cape Hatteras (better known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic) and have not been doing much hook and line fishing since I started diving.
I used to like the deep sea diving, but now I'm strictly a shallow water guy.:)
My wife says I should omit the word "water" from that sentence. LOL

Best regards,
AL

Hi superswill
Carp are a pest in Aust, if we catch them we are not allowed to put them back. They make garden fertilizer out of them these days. They call them the rabbits of the rivers and thats another pest (rabbits).
Give me the ocean any day beach, rock or boat, doesn't matter, a few beers and peace and quiet what could be better.

Used to do loads of coarse fishing when I was younger. The only chance I get these days is when I go away on holiday so I pick camp sites in France with rivers or lakes.
After 6 years without a holiday (times have been tough) I plan to go back to a little campsite in France (Lemiuel - Dordogne region). Two rivers converge, fast flowing, barble & trout abound. 6 years ago I caught 12 barble on Gruiyer cheese in one eveining session. Best was 12lbs.
Looking forward to a relaxing 2 week holiday doing the same thing this year. Only problem is the £ vs the Euro is **** and dieel prices are through the roof. Oh well, my sanity has a price come what may.

Ok guys thought I would update this old post with some evidence. Didn't quite top the 12 pounder I caught a few years ago but this barble (1 of 32 in total over 2 weeks) was great fun on light tackle. Scenary was as good as I remembered too.
£vsEuro & $ is even worse now so not sure if we will make it away anywhere this year.

Hello, fellow fisherman here. I used to fish allot on the river Thames as a kid near Chertsey. Become a teenager and forgot about fishing and fished for girls, found girls boring (sort of) and returned back to coarse fishing in my 30s and I never realised how much I missed it. Im still in the middle of catching up with the times of hair rigs and stuff, the problem is, I catch a few nice fish but spend most of my time on a private lake hand feeding a Robin maggots and missing the fish lol.... tight lines y'all
