I’ve been crab fishing off the pier near my house for about week. Have not had any keepers yet but others have and I am not giving up. Seems that the entire Truant fam enjoys being out there even when it is cold, dark, and rainy. PLUS, my 8yo daughter is starting to eat less meat on her way to vegetarian and I want to follow suit. Fish, prawns and crab we catch ourselves will help and I want to encourage her and follow her lead on cutting my chicken and turkey consumption down or out. There is a shit ton of fishing to be done around me.
Ms.T is all about it also, so we got two inexpensive but highly rated beginner setups to start fishing off the pier and catch some flounder and stuff. I don’t know shit about fishing really, although I did a prawn and shrimp season commercially in my 20s.
Anyone here have advice for a n00b or stories to share about fishing?
