Morecambe, Low water 15th April 2008

Postby Rushy » Tue Apr 15, 2008 10:11 pm

I had a load of ragworm left over from Saturday's session at Throbshaw, so the lad persuaded me to take him again to use them up :wink: (I didn't need much persuading!) :D
He asked if his best mate George could come too, not a problem he's a smashing lad :D Then the daughter, Laura, pipes up...." I'll have no-one to play with now" :roll: .......So...........


instead of one big bum sat on the box....... :roll: :wink: :lol:

The trick with getting kids interested in fishing is pretty obvious ...catch a few fish!!
With this in mind, and it being low water, I decided to take them down to Morecambe for the Plaice. Obviously this is a fairly muddy spot, so the kids were in heaven! :lol: :lol:
How the hell can the boffins say there is no such thing as perpetual motion? :roll: They obviously don't know these three! :wink: :lol:

It never ceases to amaze me how kids can manage to get sh*te/mud past the tops of the wellies onto the pants!! If a plasterer had put it on with a trowel I don't think he could have done a better job! :lol: :lol:
Then there was a couple of 'wellies stuck in mud....little feet carried on' get the picture! :wink: :lol:

Anyway, we'd got down there dead on low water so predictably nothing happened (fishing wise anyway!) until the tide started to flood. I'd noticed Laura's rod had a cracking bite (braid), so I told her to reel it in and check it........

To my surprise, she reeled it in on her own and produced this....

A 1lb 10oz Plaice...what a cracker!

This made George decide it was time to check his bait..........

Which resulted in George's first ever fish, a decent Flounder.....

He soon followed it up with another .......

Then Laura managed a flounder of her own......

Then it was everyman for himself, as soon as the baits hit the water it was time to reel in!! :roll: :wink: :lol: :lol:
For a change Dom blanked (chip off the old block!), but he said he was pleased for George and Laura :D

Then to top the day off, the Morecambe Lifeboat Hovercraft went past and gave us a wave.....cheers gents.....

Naturally, I rang ahead and pre-warned the respective mums to have the washing machines and the baths ready for when I arrived home!! :wink: :lol: :lol:
The kids were that sh*t up, they had to take their pants off for the ride home.....thank Christ I didn't get stopped by the cops, that would have taken some explaining!! :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nice one Rushy :)
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
