After Kev's and Tony's gubbing at the hands of Cameron the other day a wee rematch was in order.

Kev and son Leon picked me and the podlie queen up back of ten this morning and off to Scotstown we went. Myself and Kev had discussed our tactics to beat the bairns before hand and we were relying on distractions, not feeding them, single hook rigs for them and getting them to cast the same bait two, three, four times.
Set rods up cast our into the water baits mackie , mackie lug, lug, then set up the bairns. Meanwhile telling them they couldn't run up the dunes and back before we caught a fish. They did, we didn't and Leon pulled out the first fish:( small flounder.

Straight away Leon asked for a bait change, Kev as good as his word "naw son yer worms fine just lob it back in". Get in there Kev mate I thought and suggested putting up the tent as a further distraction. As we turned to head up to the high tide mark Leon's mangy worm did the trick and he pulled in another flounder.......................dam 10mins fishing and two fish down. :oops:Back in went the worm.

At last my rod gave a little quiver, was enough started bringing it in, Kev had the chesties on to make sure we wouldn't loose any, a flounder, was weird as it was not hooked, had swallowed the beads, but they all count, 2-1 to the bairns.........we were on the board though.

Next fish was a turbot for myself about 1/2lb, closely followed with Leon and his thrice used worm, flounder. Told Kev FFS change his bait mate, Kev replied worms up the line no idea how he's still getting them. Hooked into a flounder myself to tie at 3-3.

By this time Kev was looking at the gap in the dunes waiting for reinforcements in the form of Tony and his son Cameron. So told the kids to go build sand castles hoping that if they did arrive this might distract Cameron and let Tony get off to a flyer. In the event Tony was a no show ( back of 10am not pm mate, rofl) which worked to our advantage.
If your wondering where the turtles comes in:




No room for artistic expression in warfare though, so back to the battle.

At last Kev started to catch getting into the flounder which nosed us in front where we stayed despite Leon having a quick flury at the end, final count being dads 9 bairns 8 ( 2 turbot 15 flounder)with Leon getting 6 so he was top rod on the day but was a team event so he still lost, seems fair to me.

Weed started coming on 1600 and they were a fish behind so we left with honour restored, till the bairns get team handed that is.

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.

well done mate ,i didnt think you would beat them ,especially with that daughter of yours in the bairns team.all underhand tactics were perfectly acceptable in a dads vs the kids match !
loved the turtles ,though it just shows they had a bit in hand between building them and running up the dunes !
cheers rab

knowing the kids they would have caught with the rubber worms sothey stayed in the bag for us as a back up plan , as we didnt want to be out fished AGAIN by the young team


Nice report Gus...........:clap:

was it too warm for a fleece....?...:icecream:
suprisingly it wasnt that cold and to show it wasnt that cold the podlie queen had an underhanded plan as well. she came prepared with swim suit trousers on and striped down to them bare footed and went for a paddle right acroos gus and mine lines so think it was all square in the cunning department :roll1::roll1::roll1:
