My favorite is from the Goongumpus Treacle mine which is located on the North coast near Pooganooga. These Pillocks can grow to up to 10 pounds, but the best eating are around the 3 pound mark. I like to fillet and smoke them. Shaved railway sleepers are the best in the smoker as the creosote gives a nice tangy flavour.
some of your Pillocks have made it up as far as SWANSEA now i believe!!!!

we have a critter like that here called a Snipe. it's a ground bird that can only be caught at night by hiding on all fours in the bushes with a paper bag. it's so much fun after tipping back a few cold ones with your buddies

Funny that you should say that Codders, coz' "Trolling" for Pillocks is the best way to catch 'em. About 3 knts is perfect. Any faster and the pasty falls to bits!

I think that we have something similar. Hugh Jardon was telling me that he can often be found on Clapham Common on all fours at night, banging paper bags. I think he said "paper bags" ? Or was it paper boys?

Fishing

We do a lot of fishing from our RIB not all as good as the pic below . This was the largest of 5 Smoothounds we caught about 10 metres from Mill Rythe bouy in Chichester Harbour . We had been out off Selsey Bill but both succumbed to seasickness as it was very lumpy . As a last resort we tried at Mill Rythe and had our first bite within minutes . We were using peeler crab in about 5 metres of water . It was apt to catch a Smoothhound as our present rib is call 'Longdog' and the last one was 'Lurcher' . For those overseas the last picture is a Lurcher!
