Drove down to Southerness to meet forum member Flash 1973. After introductions we went on a crab hunt to try and find suficient bait for a short session. This proved not too easy, an hours work gave a total of one wee peeler and nineteen small softies and crinklies. Round to Carsethorn just as the tide began to run in. Two light rods apiece, and me with hope of a good days sport. Alas not to be due to bait robbers and weed. I got a wee flounder quite early, and like an earlier wounded fish that I displayed, this one had a hole right thru its body, big enough to poke a finger thru. These flatties must be really hardy fish to survive so much damage. Then Flash aka Stuart got a knock and landed another wee flounder.That was his new rod and reel christened. Just as we were about to shift nearer to the car Stu got a bigger one, and that was the end of todays fish. I was disappointed for Stu, as I hoped for a more productive day, yet thats fishing. On the bright side Stuart thoroughly enjoyed his introduction to estuary fishing with crab as bait.
