Hi Everyone,
This is Ronald from Bombay- India. Presently working in Dubai, since 8 years plus. This is my first post and hope it goes to all in Good Health and Happiness.

My native place is in Mangalore. Whenever I go on vacation to M'lore, I always remember those childhood days when I use to go for fishing in the river during day and night time. There I use to watch how my uncle use to tie long nylon net from one end to the other and keep it for some hours, we use to go and check in between if we feel something has struck. The fun was at night time, when we use to carry kerosene lantern (actual name : Gas light), with bright white light, and catch fish with bare hands, with the help of small manual trapper and dried grass. I even use to catch crabs with the help of left over chicken parts, tied to a string. Here one needs steady hands and lots of patience, but worth it. In Bombay it was just fishing with long stick and a line - as usual. Those were the days. Now the scenery is completely changed with huge buildings all around.

Here in Dubai I go fishing on the weekends. At present the weather is very hot and humid, so I don’t venture out as before.

Hope I did not bore you'll on my first day.

Please keep in touch.

Best Regards,

Ronald

Welcome Ronald

Nice to have a Manglorean aboard. I'm planning a trip to Mangalore for some sea fishing soon. Any tips on locations?

Hi Ronald

Greetings and welcome, sounds like you had a fun childhood . I also caught crabs once upon a time. Anybody tried this technique?

Take a old cycle wheel minus the tire etc, wrap lots of chicken intestines around on the spokes, all of them. Then dip it into the water till it hits the bottom. Then after about an hour yank out the wheel. Lo behold ! you will see all dem crabbies holding on for dear life to the spokes. Great fun.

Cheers
Phish

Phish,

real novel 8) idea for crab .Using a cycle wheel.
But how did you transfer to a container ?

we used to tie mutton fat to a string and let it down wells or streams.

Retract the line and you'll defintely have a crab or two holding on with their pincers.

hold them over a plastic pot and tap :lol: the fellers in.

Replay ....

Jude

Hey Jude

The thing is this is a two man job, the other guy should be handy with a largish piece of net.You plonk the wheel right into the net and tie it up quickly. Otherwise all dem little buggers make a mad dash for it as soon as they realize whats happening

Hey i just had a brainwave !!, maybe what you could do is tie the net below the wheel ,(the whole contraption should look like sort of a sieve) and then dip it in the water. That way when you pull out the wheel they should all fall into the net automatically. :D

Wish I had that flash then.

Bops please start a tech innovations page

Cheers
Phish

PS anybody got some good crab recipes

Hi Philsh,

Thanks for your advice on old cycle tyre method to catch crabs....

Jude - did you try Philshs method......... good he did not use the complete cycle instead of only the tyre, so that the full group of crabs would come cycling up.....ha ha.

Bye,

Ronald
