Hello everyone !
I go fishing/crabbing with my friends every once in awhile but I recently got totally into fishing and crabbing
Me and my friend bought a couple crabbing nets (20, actually) and i even got 2 handlines and a fishing rod.

My girl friends were quite surprised and "eww-ed" about it as they couldnt stand the smell of the dead fishes and prawns and also dont dare to touch the baits.

me and my friends are all 19 but so far i have not found any other females into fishing and stuff so i usually go with the guys on their jetty trips.

SOOOOO... i wanna learn more about this sport and hope to make more friends thats into this hobby :D

cheers!!
(ps, my face book name is the same as my name here, amber keshire. if anyone wanna make friends and go fishing or crabbing together, PM me on face book ;D )

Welcome to HLF, Amber. Yeah, not weird for a girl to fish but it's not surprising that many don't like it. You got to love the outdoors and have some level of fitness and patience. If you find dead baits icky, you can venture into artificial lure fishing. If you have any questions with regards to fishing or crabbing, just post them in their respective forums.

Good luck on your fishing and do share your catch with us if you can. :nod:
