Fishing last night.

My brother and I went back in time last night and fished the tide up from our favourite spot off the rocks. We've fished from there for decades. On the night, we caught some small pollack and loads of dogfish. The pollack came on spinners, while the doggies fell for squid fished on the bottom.

We witnessed a super sunset and we thoroughly enjoyed the fishing. I got home just after 10.00pm and early on in the night, bit of interest was provided by me foul hooking a pretty big spider crab at about 60 yards out. It didn't register a bite but when I got it in, I saw that the hook had gone through one of its legs. It was probably in the wrong place at the wrong time when I'd started to retrieve my bait ready for another cast. Anyway, it paid a high price for its bad luck, because on the way home I dropped it in at 'Rareones' house so that she could boil it up for me.

I believe that my nephew took some pictures of my unusual catch, so there maybe some photos later.

When we were little we used to wait for the boats to be craned in off the Bill, The men always used to give us the spider crabs.. I think times may have changed.

The French love them and they're starting to be valued here these days too.


I've never had crabs before.

Me.









And finally, good night all. We live in a beautiful place.

It looks wonderful. I love the beach/coast at the end of the day.

The spider's been cooked and is now sitting in my fridge waiting for Bodger to come and fetch it.
