We dropped nets with chicken carcusses for bait off the jetty below one of the bridges and then we waited.
My hands were pretty rope burned from hauling up the nets. We should bring gloves next time. Or attach our nets to electric winches that can be operated by a foot pedal so we have our hands free for more important things...like eating chips and drinking beer.
*sigh* A beer would have been lovely today.
We caught about seven sized crabs and also managed to get some mussels growing in the pylons below the jetty. When the wind picked up and our nets were useless in the current, we drove home to Ivy's Mum's place so that she could cook our catch for us!
There's nothing like catching, cleaning and preparing your own food. Crabs are best eaten fresh. The meat just slips right out of the shell! Delicious!
Suffice it to say, I slept well tonight.
