Keith James (aka Sambass) had a good day today on Mumbles Belle, landing a 5.5lb lobster & a 2+lb plaice, & then wins the football card winning a shedfull of rigs as his prize, you couldn't make it up! :D I managed a slightly smaller lobster which was berried, & while I was removing the hook from her mouth to return her, she crunched my finger (ungrateful cow) :eek: I also landed a slightly smaller plaice than Sam's, so I was certainly the runner up today, well done Sam you jammy git! :rolleyes:

You certainly found the mark today, Vic. Well done.
Not really :D the "Heath Robinson" folding anchor, with a short length of chain dragged a couple of times, so I had to reposition a few times, so really it was my disposable anchor that found us the spots :laugh:

If you V notch the tail* of a berried hen she cannot legally be landed .
She will be safe as she can be until she sheds her carapace and is notchless again.

When you think lobbies can crush claws on other lobbies (hence the rubber bands) you do your best to stay out of range .
The big 'uns are easier to handle as they are not as mobile out of the water.

* best to Google to see whereabouts.

I have since read the details but thanks anyhow sniggle, when things like this happen when totally unexpected you have to learn stuff on the run. Now I have to find out the dates of the lobster season, & clarify what happens when you catch one that you are not "recreationally" fishing for but catch it by accident?:confused2:
