What would you choose?

Hi.

Well finally here in mequinenza for a month or so on the River Ebro.

We are parked up out of the way so no bother with the coppers moving us on, so wild camping all the way, with there being loads of logs and wood all over we have had a camp fire under the stars every night, and with having the scooter a trip into Mequinenza for stores or a trip to get water and dump the waste is also no problem.

So back to the question what would you rather catch a 100lb Siluro (catfish to us) or a 40lb plus common carp?...

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

For me personally I would rather have a forty plus common carp. Been a carp angler for thirty odd years, so that would be fitting for me.

still, I wouldn't sniff at the chance of a big cat either.

Hi.

Try the Ebro you can have both. and we have only been fishing 3 days.

Just over 40lb's

Couldn't weigh this off the scales but easily over 100lbs compared to ones caught in the past.

Siluro on the way in..

Bloody Pikeys! Tearing up the Spanish Countryside and poaching all the fish! Lighting flipping fires!

You should go on a proper campsite! Freeloaders! Pah!!!

My mate runs a fishing business somewhere on the Ebro. I might have to go out there one day. I know they have caught some massive fish out of there.

Looks really great!

But just a word of caution from a "local", (you may have already checked this, so apologies if you've done so...)......do check out the dates of the summer fire ban in your area.

In most regions in Spain it is a BIG BIG criminal act to light any open fire/bonfire though the summer months.

The risk of wildfires is really high in the tinder-dry June-late September period.

Anyone who gets caught gets a very very BIG fine; and anyone unfortunate enough to actually cause a wildfire gets criminally prosecuted, often jailed, and then also gets sued for all the costs of putting it out, plus the damage it caused......which can run into hundreds of thousands, if not millions of euros.

Getting nicked lighting any open fire, even a tiny little cooking fire, out in the campo during the summer ban months really will get you arrested and charged straight-away.



Anyway, enjoy that fantastic fishing!
