Cramps Bay - A True Story
President Matthew Hayes sent forward this photo taken of a fish he caught from the shore at Cramps Bay recently.
Whilst cleaning it he found no less than 5 soft plastics in it's stomach contents, three with jig heads and line still attached. He also noticed half a "black n gold t tail" with line coming out of it's vent.
As the fish was only a pound an a half in weight, it would be very doubtful that it beat five anglers, the most likely explanation we can put forward is that this brown trout was picking up soft plastics that had been previously snagged by fisherpeople, as part of it's diet.
Cramps Bay fish are reported as being very slabby at the moment so perhaps there isn't a lot of tucker about in this area?
