I was whitbaiting 2 weekends ago. Whitebait is a very little white fish and not very easy to catch. When you´re catching whitebait you´re pretty much not allowed to move because if they see you move they get scared and they are gone. The whitebait season is very short, it´s just about 2 months.
Anyway…. We wentto the West Coast on Friday. We stayed with Polly and Russle at a camping ground. Their tent was like a house. They had a kitchen a living room with a TV and a bedroom. They stay there for the whole whitebait season.
We went to the beach at about 9 am on Saturday. Polly and I went to the stand and the others went scooping at the beach.You don´t do much at the stand, pretty much just read a book or play with Polly´s kind of gameboy and sometimes you go to the stand and look for Whitebait and if you see any you get very excited and want them to swim into the netJ. That was pretty much Saturday.
We were all at the beach on Sunday but it was raining so Vicky (Polly´s friend) built a tippy which was very nice. We made a fire too. I wanted to catch a fish so I could c*** it over the fire but I didn´t catch any :(.
Back to the white baiting…. I scooped for about 5 min and that was all. I got a little bit of inpatient… but I caught at least one!!!! J I rather eat Whitebait instead of catching it…. and on Monday we went home again.
It was a very cool weekend. I didn´t do much but it was very nice just chilling at the beach….
