I was born NOT to fish ?

Way back when i was a school lad we all had fishing rods and spinners attached for the mackerel season on the sea pier. Those were the days.

On this summers day there was 8 - 12 of us all casting off the pier into the sea and pulling in mackerel pretty much every other cast bar me lol.

I swapped places with a few of the lads thinking it was just they were getting them all before me. Nope nothing. I even went as far as swapping rods and nothing, but to rub it in they caught fish on my rod n spinner when we did swap.

I knew from that day the only way i would enjoy fish would be from the dam chippy lol


lol

There are a number of reasons as to why you weren't catching so go easy on yourself.

I recall fishing with my best mate Paul and a few others down the pump dock. The channel that joins the 2 docks together was amazing for eels. It sad around the time that the white boat "Sarsia" was afloat.

Well, we used to bait up our rods and cast out then go and have a game of manhunt on the boat. This one time we were on the boat I saw my rod slowly being dragged towards the edge and almost in, the rod I ha at the time was an old boat rod coupled with an old red Daiwa Millionaire. I legged it off the boat and grabbed the rod, struck into it and it was solid like it was snagged. All of a sudden the "snag" started to pull back but slowly move up against the flow, it wa a fish without question. It even put a decent bend in this 30lb class boat rod. I played it for around a minute before I lost it. On bringing the rig back in and composing myself, I looked at the hook length and it had definitely been bitten through. To this day we can only assume as to what it was but if love to of got it in 🐋

The lads that fished out of the docks in the hire boats used to bring back the odd Tope and let it go in the Dock. Maybe it was one of those you hooked or a Conger? I too hooked a monster in the Basin. I was waiting to "Lock out" in a fishing hire boat and decided to dangle a bait over the side while I waited. I hooked a fish which took off across the Dock and snapped 20lb line. I never saw it. It was the best bite of the day lol.
