Going eeling




Two days ago the 24th of Janurary my mum (Vicki) , dad (Leslie) and my sister (Madaline) and I (Jorja) went eeling down the back of the farm. Madaline my sister and I biked down to the back of the farm and dad and mum rode on the motorbike. We had to first get the hooks and the sinker attached to the string first so we tied it on and double notted it, then we got some meat we used our left over chicken and we then attached the chicken on the hook and threw it in at first we could see no eels but then we saw one in the shallow water where we were eeling then we could see two then tree we saw three eels but unforchanetly we could not catch any because dad and I reckend that the chicken was to soft so it was just falling off the hook. The eels were very friendly as they were so close to coming up on the surface, the eels were not that big so when we found out the chicken was bad to use and we wouldnt be able to catch any eels we chucked the rest of the chicken in and we fed the eels but on friday the 29th of Janurary we are going to come back and try catch them hopefully the chicken we used fattened them up so next time we come back we will come back with some better meat and maybe that might be better and we might have a better chance to catch a big eel. Have you ever gone eeling before? What do you suggest is the best meat to use? Have you ever caught an eel before? Let me know in the comments below!!

    I have managed to catch an Eel before when I was still at school but I hadn't really thought about what to do with it when I caught it and ended up putting it back. It was a funny thing to catch because it didn't really do anything when it took the line, it just became a dead weight. I think we used Rabbit. I think that's a pretty impressive photograph of the eel.
