Nothing chowed the Karo in 2 sessions  :-(

Poor fishing towards the end with just a few more small fish and some dogsharks.

Ended my trip by cutting my thumb straight down the middle almost to the bone with my bait knife  :vio

Sorry to hear about the poor fishing WK....

Make sure you treat that cut properly.... Bactroban works a charm!

 :corrct: :corrct:  bait knives are notoriously full of bacteria. Also never use a bait knife to fillet fish . :toppie:
My wife allows me to keep all the fishing tackle I can hide.

I cut myself fishing  and rhe Dr who sorted me out is a diver. Says the best thing is to keep a pack of alcohol swabs in your tackle bag or on your boat.  Immediately swab with the alcohol before any dressing.  Got some at clicks myself and put  in  my boat first aid kit.

when I die, may my wife not sell my fishing tackle for what I told her I paid for it... and I have bought more, a severe case of TA
