Jorja's Fantastic Eeling Post

We had a great time on Thursday the 19th of March the Eel we caught was massive it was just under one metre long.   

We had great fun I went down the back of the farm with my brother Taylor my sister Madaline and myself.  We had to take two line's down one of the line's broke and the we had two use the others line tell me if you and your family or friend's go Eeling?

Jorja has been doing some fantastic posting on her student blog - this post (and photo) were about a common activity for rural New Zealanders - catching eels.  You can see the original post here.

  2. Well done I like your writing and how you put 1 metre, that sounds really big! I go crabbing sometimes at the seaside but I have never been eelling before.

  3. Well done fantastic openers. I have never done eeling before but I have defenetly done crab fishing before in wales.How did you find the eel?

  5. @ Jorja,

    Wow! That looks like quite an eel! We do not do any eeling here in our suburb of Los Angeles. If people want to fish, they need to drive about 30 minutes west to the Pacific Ocean. Or, people can drive into the mountains and fish in a lake or stream.

    I am guessing that you eat the eel. How do you prepare it?

    I have been fishing before. One time I went on a special trip way up to the Arctic Circle! There I fished for shee fish and Arctic graylings. You can see the fish here:
