# William Whiskerson Mouse explorer. #
Here comes William Whiskerson in his amazing travelling globe.
I am William Whiskerson, the famous mouse explorer.
Where has our intrepid mouse explorer landed today?
He's on a long sandy beach at the seaside.
But which part of the United Kingdom is he in?
Cheesephone, reveal my location.
The cheesephone shows William where he is in the world.
Hi, William! Today, you're on the south coast of England,
in the seaside town of Weymouth.
Look! I've got a message coming through on my cheesephone!
Hello, William! I'm Charlie. Come visit me in my restaurant.
Lock their location, cheesephone.
The map shows William the way to Charlie's restaurant.
William sets off to meet Charlie, exploring Weymouth as he goes.
There are lots of tourists walking on the esplanade beside the beach.
They're taking in the fresh sea air
and looking at different shops and stalls on the seafront.
William has found a telescope, which he can use to look out to sea.
The telescope makes the boat look much closer.
William carries on his journey.
Look, adventurers! The cheesephone has led us to a restaurant. Yummy!
-Pleased to squeak you, Charlie.
-Pleased to squeak you too, William.
Charlie explains that his mum and dad work in the restaurant
and he invites William to help out.
Right! That sounds like a real adventure!
BOTH: Explorers away!
-This is the restaurant!
Charlie shows William the dining area,
where all the customers come to eat.
He also points out the kitchen, where his dad prepares the food.
Charlie then shows William a menu.
He tells him that it lists all the different dishes available to eat.
There's an awful lot of fish on here.
-Yes, because we're a fish restaurant.
William notices something missing at the top of the menu.
Fish of the day? There's nothing written there.
-Because it hasn't been caught yet.
-Caught? From the sea?
-I'd love to see how that happens.
-OK, let's go and find out!
Charlie takes William down to the harbour.
-This is Brett, he catches our fish for us.
-Can we come and find out how you catch the fish?
-Of course you can.
-Come on down and maybe you can have a go too.
BOTH: Explorers away!
William and Charlie put on their life jackets
and set off for the fishing trip with Brett.
On their way, they see lots of boats of different shapes and sizes.
Lifeboats, fishing boats,
old-fashioned sailing boats.
Even huge ferry boats.
Brett navigates out of the harbour walls and into the open sea.
He uses a compass and a computerised map to help him find his way.
What time of day do you go fishing?
That depends on the tide normally.
Brett tells William that sometimes he sets off
as early as four in the morning to catch his fish.
And sometimes he fishes in the middle of the afternoon.
It all depends on the type of fish he's trying to catch and the tides.
How do you find the fish?
Every time I catch a lot of fish, I put a mark on there,
and then I'll go there the following year.
I build up a map of where the fish visit.
The map shows William the fishing spot the boat is going to.
William and Charlie set out to find it.
There's some seagulls.
You get a lot of seagulls near fishing boats
because they like to eat fish.
-Shall we start fishing, then?
This is a fishing rod we use.
And sometimes we use bait to catch different fish.
Bait is what a fisherman puts at the end of his rod to attract the fish.
Sometimes they use little fish as bait, like this one.
But we're going to use feathers and see what we catch with those.
Today, William and Charlie are using feathers as bait.
What sort of fish like feathers?
-Well, mackerel like feathers and so do pollock.
Brett helps Charlie and William lower the feathers into the sea.
OK, let the line down. That's it. Now lock it off.
You're a natural adventurer, Charlie!
Then they move the rod up and down.
This makes the feathers dance in the water,
helping the fish to find them.
-I thought fishermen always fished with nets!
-A lot of them still do,
but I prefer rod and line fishing, cos it's more sustainable.
-What does sustainable mean?
With sustainable fishing, every fish that is caught is measured.
If the fish is too small, it's thrown back into the ocean.
This way, the smaller fish can grow,
and fishermen will still be able to find plenty of fish in the future.
Let's fish sustainably, Charlie.
-What sort of fish do you catch?
-It depends on the time of year.
We're in September, and we're catching bass and flatfish,
like turbot and brill.
-Can you catch a shark?
-You can do.
Brett says there's a harmless type of shark, a dogfish,
living in the waters around Weymouth.
-They swim along the bottom, hoovering it up.
-Do they go, "Woof"?
-I think I've got a bite.
-Charlie's got a bite on the end of his fishing line!
-I got one!
-Wind it up.
Charlie turns the handle of his rod
to pull the fishing line out of the water.
Look, he's caught something!
-It's wiggling like mad!
-Oh, what an adventure!
Here's some mackerel!
Wow! Squeakalicious! Two of them! That might be our fish of the day!
Brett measure Charlie's mackerel on his fish ruler.
They can only keep the fish if they measure more than 20 centimetres.
-How big is he, Charlie?
The legal limit is 20, so we can eat that one.
-They've caught their fish of the day.
-Well done, Charlie!
Put it in the ice box and let's fish again.
Back at the restaurant,
Charlie and William have put their mackerel on the menu.
William says he can't wait to eat his fishy feast.
-Well, that's lucky, because your lunch is here.
We've got the fish of the day! It's the mackerel we caught earlier!
Then tuck in!
Oh! Oh, thanks, Charlie. I've had an amazing adventure in your restaurant!
-I've had an amazing adventure too. I brought you a present.
A fishing rod! Now I can go fishing in the bath!
-Hey, squeak you later, Charlie.
-Squeak you later too, William.
Can you remember where William went today?
William visited the seaside town of Weymouth.
He met his friend Charlie, whose mum and dad own a restaurant.
William and Charlie went on a fishing boat.
Can you remember what sort of fish they caught?
That's right - mackerel!
Then Charlie's dad cooked William a fishy feast.
It was squeakalicious!
Time to fly, explorers!
We're off on another adventure!
See you soon, William!
