Hi jakeb,

Me thinks your being a little paranoid. I've been fishing for about 15 years and have only ever caught 1. Though they may be more common where you fish.

No rig will stop you catching them. large baits and hooks will help cos they don't get that big. Although that won't help when your scratching for small stuff.

Just one of those things to put up with, heed the advice given already and you'll be fine.

Make sure you use hooks that disintegrate and cut the line.


P.s The 1 weever i caught had its tail missing, Do other fish prey on them? or maybe had a taste and changed its mind.

Aaaarrrgghh,

Just been back and read through the section on treating weever stings, 2LB PLUS GREATER WEEVER, now I'm scared.

Where do you fish jakeb? I fish the solent mostly, not alot about.
