Catch Fish with
For anyone unfamiliar with the site always check the FRESHWATER, SALTWATER and TACK-TICS pages. The Saltwater page now extends back as a record of over several years of (mostly) sea fishing and may be a useful guide as to when to fish. The Freshwater stuff is also up to date now. I keep adding to both. These pages are effectively my diary and the latest will usually be about fishing in the previous day or two. As you see I also add the odd piece from my friends and correspondents if I've not been doing much. The Tactics pages which are chiefly 'how I do it' plus a bit of science are also updated regularly and (I think) worth a read (the earlier ones are mostly tackle and 'how to do it' stuff).
One of my epals, Rob (not bass fishing Rob), has been on holiday to Tobago. We've had a bit of correspondence about the fishing over there in the past and he sent me a few nice pictures. I'll add more details as soon as he finds time to write:-
I'm back from yet another trip to the island of Tobago so here's some pictures I thought you might want to see. I'll write up a short report when time permits.
All the best,
I noticed that one of his pictures was of a nice bonefish so I asked him about it:-
Thanks for the pictures. You got a bonefish then! Fantastic! I expect you knew you had it on eh?
All the best,
I had no idea what I'd hooked into as the fish was going in circles for a few minutes, pulling as strong as a bulldog. I thought I was dealing with a large grouper or snapper, then suddenly the fish took off for Barbados, that's when I realized that I was actually fighting a big bonefish. The picture doesn't do justice to the size of that fish for sure.
I wish I'd been there with him!! Anyway, it gives me a nice warm feeling for Christmas.
