Well done to your son for kicking your ass he he and by the looks of it your should have your son to be the teacher now as to the wife yes she should of stayed at home doing the ironing he he no all the best tw you all tight lines:clap3:The whole family and myself went up to stormy market early afternoon to get some more traces and weights from the fishing stall up there cos' he does some good deals. (he's actually got the Okuma Magnetix reel I've been asking him to get for the last three months but didn't have the cash on me today to buy it. It's only £49.99 from him as well, thats the cheapest price I've seen anywhere)
Anyway after tucking into a tray of jumbo sausage and chips we all trekked off to Porthcawl.
Was a bit cooler than i expected but when we got there there was hardly anybody there cos I'd got the high tide times wrong again.
Armed with 2 packets of mackerel and a bag of party squid me and my two kids set about our usual competition of who was going to catch the most fish.
I caught the first little whiting and proceeded to taunt the kids big time about me being a professional.
Wont bore you with all the details of the afternoon but by the time we packed up to go home at 7.10pm my 15 year old had won the day with four fish, I had three and my eleven year old only had one, so obviously he must now pay the price of being the loser and wash the tea dishes.
The catch was a mixed bag of whiting and pouting, none of them big enough to keep.
I think we had a lucky day really cos I didn't see anybody else catch anything at all.
One thing that did worry me though is that my eleven year olds casts were only just falling short of mine. And my eldest son is now emptying his reel every cast.
Can't decide if I'm just a rubbish caster myself or a better teacher.
This was the first time my wife had joined us on a fishing trip and most definitely the last. She did nothing but moan and whine all afternoon that she was cold and bored. I did reply that she had no business coming out of the house anyway as there was still a pile of ironing to do...!!!!
Anybody looking for a lodger?????
