    Maiden voyage to day, had to run the engine for an hour no more than 2000 rpm. Next time out I've got to get her on the plane, throttle back so its on the minimum revs but still planning for another hour. Then I can go for a blast.

    Out in the bay tomorrow

    Slow day for us in the bay - with good ragworm we persisted in drifting for plaice - final score 1 plaice & 2 pin whiting - good to be out but a little chilly. Early finish justified. Thanks for the company Geoff.

    Plaice and gurnards

    9.30 start with Ken and motored east to see Alun already set up. Joined in with a few plaice and various gurnards - tub and grey - and joined by a flotilla of club boats. Wind varied and meant a change of drift line. OK for Ken though he then had three double shots of gurnard and plaice. Wind became uncomfortable and westerly and so it was a steady trip back west for a final drift in idyllic conditions off Durley chine and more plaice. A good day - face caught the sun. Some plaice for tea too. Heard you call up Terrry but you obvioudsly didn't hear me reply several times. A good day out.

    Pot markers and floating lines

    During these weak tides it might be useful to know that not all the pot/net buoys use sinking ropes. I managed to foul one today on a line roughly between the Sadler and Dolphin sand. Fortunately I saw it just before it snagged and I managed to free it, but probably only because it was calm, water was clear and I have outboard power. If I had a shaft drive it would have been a different story

    Obviously no councillors own a boat at Cobbs ! If they did it would have been fixed ages ago !

    Plaice and gurnards

    Also a good day in near ideal conditions, it was good s to see so many club members out and about. Pete (Gaffa) was good company for the day and did his bit adding to the catch. We sat it out a bit longer down the Southbourne end but when it went quiet, we made our way back to Bournemouth/Sandbanks where we enjoyed more sport in balmy conditions. Oddly, our only by catch was a small wrasse to me and we ended up with a couple of dozen nice plaice of a good size with only 3 small ones. I did hear you, Stuie and did shout back but you obviously couldn't hear me, I will have to check out the radio; where were you? Terry.

    Hooky Take plenty of pictures of the engine and its serial number. Get some DNA marking kit and paste this stuff into every crook & nanny on anything that's worth nicking especially the engine! Enjoy your new engine

    POOLE BRIDGES AIR DRAFT ....or lack of !

    I had a phone call from the council on the 18th Feb, to say. "An engineer will be on site this week to fix the displays" That's 6 six weeks ago and still no closer to a solution, a bit like Brexit. 😎

    POOLE BRIDGES AIR DRAFT ....or lack of !

    Tuesday 26/03/2019 and there was no sign of the air draft monitors having been repaired . It does look as though some access protection has been provided around the twin sails unit facing the old bridge but the display is still unreadable and the old bridge unit facing the twin sails is still as dead as a dodo. Anyone have any idea of the Poole Councils excuse I was under the impression that it was only going to take 2 weeks back at the end of February😣 I just can't understand what the problem is these units are not particularly sophisticated and calibration is pretty simple .....I almost contemplated offering my almost defunct company's services to sort them out..but I am still qualifying for the non trading period so can't do that. I suppose it's a money problem!!!!😕

    Catch Reports

    What has happened to all the catch reports? Seems there were a number of members out over the week-end but no reports! I can recall this forum when you could regularly see what was being caught, if anything, but they were reports good bad or indifferent. Now it seems the only time a fish is recorded is a special catch, which is great of course, but the club has many members who are not proficient as others and may feel intimidated to report any fish caught even if it was just dogfish! Just try finding one of those LSD's when on a species hunt! So come on everyone make a simple report saying caught this or that or even nothing at all, we all have a bad day sometimes.

    Christchurch Entrance.

    We went out for our first fishing trip today after reading the good advice from Mal & Alun, Before setting out to tackle the sandbar we took a look at it at low tide. I would reckonmend until it settles down that you check it out first, it was a surprise to see how narrow the gap is to get through at the first buoy and as Mal points out the first buoy is about 14 metres inland .

    Dead whale and plastics

    When I used to fish Chesil I always took a carrier bag to bring back rubbish. Can we try and do the same on a boat

    Dead whale and plastics

    What are we doing to the planet????? Who discards all this plastic rubbish. If a bit of plastic bait wrapper is blown off my boat I am disgusted with myself. When driving down the road I see youngsters tossing wrappers out of the window of the dads car, why do they think thats ok???
