    Uptide rig

    UPTIDE FISHING this was developed for fishing in waters up to 100 feet deep , so as the name say's cast away and uptide of the boat with a 6 to 8 ounce lead with quite long wire grips on play the line out when lead hit the sea bed do not keep pulling to see if it is holding but let the line keep flowing out until a bow of line is formed from your rod down tide and back up to the lead when a bite is seen do not strike but reel in quickly until the fish can be felt then play as per norm

    No a flapper is a fish used for bait split from head to tail with the middle removed to leave the two sides to flap with the hook in its head

    depends what you are targeting Neil I agree entirely with Graham for Cod rays smoothies etc For whiting and smaller fish I have found paternosters work better at slack tide and a running ledger and running ledger with 2 hook trace when the tide runs. Leads I now use are the gemini type, mostly in 8oz

    Hi when you cast put the hook over the wire of the lead and cast, let the line out steadily to form a bow down tide back to the boat and you should be fishing don’t make your hook length to long graham

    Thanks Graham, that’s what I usually use but, I always seem to get tangled. Any ways around this ? Would you ever use a Pennel pulley like in beach casting? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nice work, how long did it take you? If they quoted £210 just to look at it then that equates to around 3 hours labour?

    Top fixing! Yamaha can be so expensive! I have found many of the OB parts are used in motorbikes, so with the part number to hand I call Cresent Yamaha in Charminster and often they are cheaper! Got all my carb service parts from there. R

    Hi All, I have recently had an issue with my Yamaha F30 Power trim and tilt system. When I left the motor in the raised position over a period of time the motor would very slowly return to the down position. I could trim the motor out ok but slowly it would return to the lowest trim position on its own. On inspection I found no trace of water in the oil (which is great news) so I suspected a failed O ring or a faulty valve assembly. It turned out to be as I suspected one of the seals had failed in one of the shuttle valves. With the motor in the fully raised position and locked place with the trailer lock pin I removed the shuttle valve see picture No 1 a small amount of hydraulic fluid leaked out when the assembly was removed. The shuttle valve consists of two parts. The valve assembly and the shuttle piston see picture No 2 When I dismantled the valve assembly it was easy to see which seal had failed. This tiny O ring (on the end small brass part next to the spring in the photo) is not available as a single item from Yamaha so I had to buy the complete valve assembly. Straightforward replacement of both components and a top up of the hydraulic fluid. Be sure to keep the new component spotlessly clean. Fully Raised and Lowered the motor several time checked the oil level and hey presto no more trim issues. Motor stayed in the fully raised position over night and had not moved an inch. Parts from BHG Marine cost £108inc P+P Hydraulic Oil (Dextron II ) £10 from Halfords. Hollow ground wide screwdriver bit set £15 from Machine Mart. This is a relatively easy DIY fix and will save a huge bill at the main dealers. I was quoted £210.00 just to have a look at the pump with additional parts and labour extra? Mikey B
