The weather is definately changeable for the duration of the competition and giving us problems making a decision, saturday always has looked the best day.

I wonder who is thinking of going out when?????

Keeping an eye on it.

 

But it hardly looks like a 48 hr gap

 

Looks like only Sat or nothing at the moment. Especially as Jayden is coming

 

 

Probably why this comp used to be booked  in the summer

One day does not make a 48 hour comp

I was looking forward to dusting off my son and getting some serious commitment from him

Sadly I think we will have to go for another weekend

Fisheagle could struggle to get crew for more than one day. This should be a summer comp. when days are longer. Who is likely to be out at 6 pm on Friday evening , even given good weather as the days are too short.

Work is for those who don't know how to fish.

weather is still changeable this morning and not a big window, certainly not 48 hours, should be considered for a summer comp next year, this was always one of the best comps in the year.

 

when is a decision likely to be made on the weather? as leaving to last minute on a Friday is not ideal.

Having seen the comments, spoken with Neil and looked at the weather, we have taken the decision to CANCEL the comp this weekend and hope for an Indian summer, you never know.

Sorry guys but we have to think of everyone. No doubt some may still get a trip in on Saturday as a consolation.

That's not really the point of it - reason\history of the 48hr is you can fish as much or as little as you like. Overnight if you wish etc. Our usual comps are limited to a short window, this one is the exception.

 

In my experience it is best to not change the rules of a comp last minute, that is a can of worms!

Ideas from members are always welcome, don't be shy.

Just don't change a comp, hahaha!

As mentioned above, it is a good summer comp and no doubt will move back next year.

We so postpone and sometimes lose comps due to weather, I think we live in the wrong place for boating! Maybe 2 complimentary hobbies needed, such as boating and kite flying.

I was undecided about the 48 hour comp, but picked up some bait today, and might be out inshore tomorrow.

Anyone have any recent advice as to what's in, and worth going for?

Mackerel?

Flatties?

Bream?

Pollack?

any early Whiting?
