Bass that is. I caught a nice plump 7lb 14oz fish on Monday as well as a further five fish, with three around the 4lb mark. Weather was cold but there was still bait about as I also caught three Mackerel, three Garfish as well as a dozen Pollack.

in that case, tell him Wink

Another piss poor day for you then, given up on the double digets I see, a mere puppy of a fish. Wink

Awesome fish, AGAIN! fancy taking up knitting till the rest of us catch up?

Best part is she went back to make loads more.

As a clue , what were your exact co-ordinates for each of of the fish?
It would be easier to discover the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden than to find out where people catch their bass!
Perhaps that's it, he's not in Pakistan or Afghanistan, he's out bass fishing somewhere on the south coast!

Aha! We've just narrowed it down to the south coast. Laughing

I like your style DW! Very Happy

All our big Bass have come from Dorset but I sincerely believe that we will repeat similar captures next year from the Sussex & Hampshire coasts. It's not just where you are fishing but how.

Glad to see you are on the mend. Catching one of those biggies might just do it though! Shock Very Happy
