Cute fish, but that is an impressive dinner it had. I had no idea they ate them like that.

@giles Nice work. You are figuring out your local waters quickly.  I was shucking oysters a few weeks ago and found a few crabs inside, a bit smaller though and not alive.

I've started to explore this area, only 5 mins walk from home.  Requires shorts or waders to fish at the right state of tide. 

Though last night I did ship a load of water.  The wind was so strong it blew me off balance and my feet were stuck in the mud, so I toppled over into knee-deep water..... :D :D :D

Took my nephew out fishing last weekend. We caught a bunch of Pike but this was the only bass. He was mega happy.

11.5" Crappie.

Some 35 - 40 years ago, in my teen years, my family would take week long summer vacations to a lake in northern WI. Every late afternoon of those trips, we'd hit limit on crappies about that size. Fish fries every night.

Very nice. Large mouths are always fun for the youngins. Recently, I came across a pic I had forgotten about. It was my daughter's first largie. Not quite that size. But, it was big enough to HUGE smile on her face. Truth be told, I did have to help her land it. She was only 8, at the time.....

Nice fish and cool memories @scooter.

I've never been to Disney World or 6 flags. My family vacations every year were weeks of fishing in northern Minnesota and up into Canada. Those were the best times of my life and grounded me into loving fishing forever.

Caught a bunch today. Total length less than the inseam on my shorts though.  Kid had a blast because we were getting bites on almost every cast though. "E38034A3-2B87-4AAC-86E9-F5EBB280257F.jpeg""B9D40C8A-5CC0-4CB6-A01A-C221A8FA4DE7.jpeg""B2808845-D89D-4577-8DB6-4C3E99B9CA9F.jpeg"

So, I bid on a Kayak and it went for way more than I thought it was worth.  I'd done my sums and worked out that I could probably buy a new one for less.  Came second in the auction, so went to buy the same model new, completely sold out.

So I have a roof rack with Kayak attachment and a fish finder, but no Kayak.... :D :D :D :D :D

In the U.S. its very common to find for sale items on the end of someones property near the road. If it's the same in the UK, you have the perfect setup to drive around and find that kayak for sale.
