    hi, i managed to catch two moorish idles out at flat rock (P.E) area . in rock pools, with a small net. any advice on how to catch fish more easaly, well a bigger net is obveous. and i don't like the vinager thing, so any other idee's, also where els could i go look. have any other peeps been catching anything localy (P. E) or any other place? i mite go on a road trip. also pls add pics. i will add some asap. well as soon as i make them small enough for here

    i hear rivers, espesialy at jetties is a good place to look. any other advice welcome

    It usually salt that is used. If a fish goes in a hole and you struggling to catch it you can squirt salt in the whole to force the fish out as they can't tolerate to much salt.:razz:

    chemicals or using of them is illegal, I don't think anyone should mention anymore.
