After inviting myself to join Kev and Dave we got to the secret mark at 7.45.

We waited until 8 to give ourselves a straight 7 hours fishing.

Kingfisher arrived about 7.55 and moored next to us, biting wind cut us in half for the first 3-4hrs. Second cast resulted in a plump Flounder about 2lbs, result, one more than we all thought we would catch!!!

After around 3 hours we had 4 Flounders on the boat, great session though freezing. Capt Kev, chef patron knocked up a feast as pictured.

Fishing on,the sun came out and a fish were still coming on board, Dave having the biggest at 2lbs11oz. 

Struggling to fish with the snoring coming from Kingfisher, chef patron knocked up a steak sandwich swilled down with a nice bottle of Burgandy.

I think we used 2lbs of worms, a lot of food, loads of tea and coffee, and a bottle of red, oh yes and caught 7 Flounders, from around 1lbs8oz to 2lbs11oz.

I think we all thought we would be lucky to see a fish let alone have a respectable session. Great day Kev and Dave thanks for having me along and all the instruction🤣🤣 Other pictures show Dave like a coiled spring, Kingfisher in the sun, Kev in action.

Great shame only around 15 club members were fishing out of about 200 I think.

I was advised joining the club that joining in is the way to learn and get involved, today being case in point. Brilliant fun thank you PBSBAC 😀😀😀😀

What were the results from the RNLI comp?

Well done to those who got out. I need something special to sit out in the cold for not many fish about. If it was non stop and could be reliable / consistent I expect many more would be found floundering about in the harbour.

Well done to Bobby and everyone who caught fish, a challenging day day worth the effort. I was sorry not to be out on Stingray, get well soon Neal and thanks for your hostility last night 😊. Thanks to Martin and Dean stepping in at the last minute to give me a ride.

Thanks to Chris for taking on such a long journey, the tide planning and weather checks necessary are very demanding😂.

The chilli was superb and very welcome on a chilly day, lots of tea and good company. 4 fish on Kingfisher, 1 weighed in for me 2lb 7oz.

2 fish to Nigel.

A well attended weigh in at Cobbs and generally a good vibe. More flounders caught than I expected but still lots of time with no bites.
