    Worth whiting for...

    Forcast was light winds for the day = it would have been rude not to take advantage - so it was a leisurely 9am start with friend Ken aboard. The plan was to look for whiting and we motored to a likely looking area well off Ballard. After a brief unproductive drift we dropped the hook and bites began straight away- dogs and a small conger followed by some jumbo pout. Then whiting began to put in an appearance - we managed several dozen with a few kept - they were mainly of a good ,stamp' best being 2lb 9oz. Back at Cobbs shortly after three for a celebratory Doombar. A very successful winter session.

    First trip this year for Y-Knot

    Slightly over eagar start to get out this morning, took one look at the breakers at the end of the channel and went back into the Harbour for an hour. Even after the wait there was only 2 foot 6 inches outside the last channel markers, had to quickly lift the engine more and coast over the realy shallow bit. No fun at all, on the way in the breakers were quiet lively and still only 3 foot 6 inches at the end channel and no end markers have been positioned. Went down to Milford to try for a plaice or two, no luck with the plaice but I did manage 4 nice thorneys in 40mins, tons of baby dogs and a pout. Moved back to Christchurch and had 3 small eyed rays in 20 minutes and then the dogs moved in. Back home for for 3.30pm and a wash down, first trip without any hiccups always a good start to the season.

    Saturday gave the top side a good clean with the family,Sandy loves playing with the pressure washer so I was able to clean sink area etc. Sunday with a mild hangover from a great dinner dance....thanks for organizing Mal[emoji106] I went out about 8.15 with bream as my target . Tried by Ballard just below Joint Venture but missed my only bite so moved into Swanage bay to find Chris and Mal there on kinkyfisher [emoji23] Wasn’t to long and they come on the feed slowly with largest at 2 1/2 lb all went back as full of eggs,only 4 or 5 but target achieved.It then died with the tide so tried several places in the bay but my head was banging so in just after lunch. Great to be out and she goes great with the brand new leg

    Myself and Andrew from our welsh section ventured up to Llyn Padarn set in the Snowdonia National Park. We have been working closely with the charity change step , A team of veteran peer mentors who use their own experiences to help veterans confront challenges in their lives, and to navigate and engage with support services throughout Wales. Fresh from going up the country’s highest mountain Snowdon , our veterans were given some brief paddle skills training before spending an hour touring the lake in groups of three . Some even demonstrated some enviable self rescue techniques 😀 A cracking day afloat with a great group of lads and lass in a stunning location .👍
