You'll have to help Grant out as well Smile  one thing I would say is don't use a keep net in this weather release them straight back in the river. Quite a lot of good sized fish have been floating about dead in the heat they need to be able to be able to breath and the salinity level must be quite high because there are Sea Bass on Breydon at the moment edibale sized one at that.

If you hunt round you find there are some threads sbout carp fishing.

If night fishing and using a gas latern just check with the yard, if on your own boat keep any opened gas appliance and any spent cartridges in the gas locker they can leak especially if they get hot. Not obvious because the flow of gas in use cools the remaining contents which later expand.

Good luck anyway always want to night fish at your age but my grandfather never took me Mad

night fishing is the best time to fish in my opinion. Won't be using a lantern. just a torch or something.lol.

My dad was saying that we could moor up for the night then get off the boat and set everything up on the bank and have a little portable barbecue or something.

I just hate all the spiders etc at night. Anyway i hope i catch some big fish. Do bream feed off the bottom, middle or top and whats the best bait for them, Maggotts?

Thanks

ok won't be carp fishing then. I like spinning for perch and pike but im just worrying because if i get a 20lb + pike i don't know how to handle it, and me and my dad dont fancy putting our hands up inside its chin.

If i do get one i will probably hold it down while my dad gets the spinner out with the forceps.lol.

biggest pike i ever caught was with my friend at a drain in boston in lincolnshire (where i live) on a spinner.

You can see me holding it in the picture. didn't weigh it but im guessing its around 6 - 7 lb, it looks alot smaller in the picture than it actually was in real life.lol

when i got that pike in i laid it on the bank and kneeled over it so that it was in between my legs. Then i got the spiner out,lol.
