Fishing a couple of droppers in this wind could be a bit of a nightmare but Thursday is looking like the best day, my mate reckons the early bird catches the trout at Burrator, good luck.

Drew a blank on my last excursion to Burrator, fished the droppers of  3 Buzzers on a seven weight line floating, then switched to a single nymph on a sinking seven weight as it was so hot, i think the heat is largely something to do with it, had a single take all day on the nymph, brought my tent and tried the same tactics at dawn the next morning but bugger all.
Going to have a crack at Plymbridge woods next week, anyone ever fished that disused quarry half way up on the right ?a right big deep dark pool, its still water so i doubt it will contain any Trout or Salmon.

Good luck, never fished that way at all, Plymbridge or Burrator but must be worth it just for the scenery.
I have poached I mean fished, ahem, the tidal section of the Plym at Coypool plenty of times, Leigham resident's perks, used to be plenty of Browns there plus the chance of a Sea Troot, plus a Mullet or Bass if the tide is up.

 Cool, i might give that a bash at some point, i used to think that the treated effluent from Plympton sewage works used to get piped into that part, surely not?

The outfall is well below the round about, all treated sewage goes on the land now anyway.

Near the port of Sines in southern Portugal, massive container port which is very busy, a speargunner had an Octopus about two feet long and said he saw a White Sea Bass (which in Morrocco is known as Corbian) that was 4 feet long! That's a proper fish.

You see a lot of Bream in the markets as well as conger as you say, there are some cracking snapper as well as some wierd looking belt fish and a lot of Monk, very wild ocean here though.

Is that the internet variation of "the one that got away"? As the best I ever managed was with my brother-in-law on a canal reservoir in the midlands when I caught a 4lb carp, what do I know?
Very Happy

I caught a 4 tonne mackerel off the breakwater a few years back. I've just tried uploading the pic but i don't think it worked   ;)


Edited to add : managed to upload the pic of the mackerel shark i caught off the breakwater, isn't that a beauty.

I have tried and failed..it seems ATD is good for everything else apart from uploading photos from a hard drive.
Apparently Carp are not very good to eat, full of bones and they taste like mud...i stick  to fly fishing anyway (my niche)

I agree, Punchie. I might have gone fishing more often if I could eat what I caught (of those the best I ever managed was a trout of less than 2lb in the stream behind where I lived. Useless!) I could never understand catching fish and throwing them back.

A very good friend of mine years ago used to go serious carp fishing and he had a whole photo album of fish he caught, weighed, photographed with him holding them before putting them back. He tried to tell me "That was one I caught 3 years ago and it weighed .... and then 2 years later it weighed...." Yawn ...."Clive, can you eat them?" He used to catch them around 30lb plus in weight.

Carp are OK to eat as long as you keep them in clean water for a while and then eaten quickly.

Plenty of Mackerel swimming around in Millbay this morning, too tired to catch them though.
