Pasta with crab sauce for tea. And the debris has gone in the freezer to become a bisque at some point.
I'd like to have a heroic fishing anecdote but Jamanda just bought the crab at the fishmonger in Barnstaple this morning.


You could just make one up. Would seem appropriate for a fishing anecdote.

There were quite a few pieces of spider crabs on the beach this morning, and a rather lively velvet swimmer that seemed to want me for dinner.

I did manage to catch a fish in the sea with my bare hands though, put him back as he was only an inch or two long. :lol:

How are you getting on with the shrimp net? We bagged hundreds last month, but were really disappointed with the taste.

I think that prawns are more worth the effort than shrimps. IMHO.

I'm going to change my spider crab story and claim that Jamanda won it in a knife fight. Hah, beat that with your nets and kayaks.

I've not used it since I last mentioned, the weather's been a bit too 'orrible to get out much and I've been rod fishing. I caught a mighty 8 inch bass the other day, swiftly returned of course.

Knife wielding teachers are always a danger down here though.

My kayak is in fact the hollowed out skin of a Great White Shark that I killed with my bare hands (knives are for wimps). I wove the blood vessels of the shark into a net which I then used to catch the crabs. Using the sharks brain as bait.

Well how ever it was procured the spidercrab pasta sauce was very good - and we discovered that this year's batch of chillies are rather good and that's with them them still green!
