    Tiddler out again.

    Tiddler out again. Jacqui thought we could go out mid week but decided on Friday instead. Then we got the weather warning for thunderstorms for Friday. Then on Thursday afternoon Jacqui informed me that they'd changed their minds again. We were on the water by about 3:00 pm and headed across the harbour. It was windier than I expected. We saw several charter boats inside the harbour which made us wonder what it was like outside ? ? ? It was a little lumpy outside but nothing too bad for us. The breeze was SSW so I said it would be flat in Studland. Well I've never fished Studland bay before and probably won't again although it was lovely in the sunshine on a calm sea. It was about 12ft deep, flat sandy bottom & no fish. After a couple of hours relaxing Jacqui decided we should move to where the fish are. I explained the by now the breeze was in a line with Ballard & Old harry so once we were in line with them it would get lumpier. That's OK she said. We headed out to the " Secret mackerel mark " ( Just further out where the water was a bit deeper. ) She was straight into the fish from the start. Many wriggling off the hook before being boated so back in to get some more. Within a few minutes we had about 10 so we stopped. That's plenty for the table. Back into Studland to clean the fish and another peaceful and fruitless drift in the warm sunshine & cool breeze. The chain ferry entrance area was quite turbulent but nothing for the Tiddler to worry about. As we got further in we could see that it was quite cloudy over the land a remarked on our lovely afternoon afloat! Jacqui picked up this little fella in the harbour and I have no Idea what it is. I'll get the book out and try to find it. Saturday when she came back from her Mum's she had a sandwich for lunch and whilst we were talking she said " we ought to go to IKEA." Well her face was a picture when I said " OK then let's go ! " Well she comes out on the boat with Me so it's the least I could do ! I spent the afternoon " OOOing & Pointing " had some lovely meatballs and got home about 9 ish . . . . . . Lovely ! Jim

    Shakedown trip tomorrow

    Reflections 2 has decided to wet her bottom and do the first fishing trip of the year tomorrow with the hope of at least putting something on my zero species list.😎 She has received a load of well deserved TLC recently including servicing and in and out valetting and a few upgrades so it would be a shame not to christen her with some fishy mess .😋 I will be going solo unless anyone would like to crew . It wont be an early start. PM me if interested or able to disclose any fishy spots😁

    Give & take indeed Neil. It's easy to P*** them off but it's a long road back once you've done it ! Besides I enjoyed myself at IKEA ( but I'd never admit it ) Probably just refreshing my memory the best route for the Boat Show ! Jim

    Thanks I will need all the help I can get as haven't used her for almost 2 years She is a 1998 RYDS 600AC with a 115hp Mariner efi (2001) on the back. I have owned her since 2006 and she still does everything I need and have never felt the need to change her

    Junior Comp Rules 2018 Competition Dates are: 21st / 22nd July - fishing 1 day only - nominate day on booking-in 18th \ 19th August - fishing 1 day only - nominate day on booking-in Sun 9th September - followed by presentation at Cobb's BBQ Area There are 3 opportunities for a junior to fish this comp - the junior may fish up to 3 times - once in July, once in August and once in September. When there is an option to fish Saturday or Sunday - the day being fished must be stated at booking-in. Fishing time: 09:00 - 15:00 Style of Competiton - 2 comps in 1: - Specimen Competition - Under 16yrs - largest specimen award over up to 3 comps. Please record your juniors' best specimen by weight, photo required and to be submitted with form. Usual Club Specimen weights used. - Species Hunt - split in to 2 age groups - under 11yrs & 11yrs+ to under 16yrs. Score sheets need to be sent to open@pbsbac.co.uk within 48 hrs of each comp - these will be made available on the forum or emailed by request. 5 hooks at any one time over max of 2 rods (easier for juniors can use 1 rod to feather). Area to fish: All boats compeating will fish within Club Waters and within 5 miles of land (northern boundry of Club Waters). The captain of the boat deems what is suitable for crew and craft. Whether the competition goes ahead will be decision of Safety Officer\Comp Organiser by 19:00 the night before. Safety: The decision whether each competition goes ahead will be made by the PBSBAC Safety Officer \ Comp Organiser day before each competition. A post will be put on the forum the night before each competition to confirm the decision. Species scoring: Each Junior will be issued with a Species Hunt Score Sheet. Each species of fish caught will be awarded with the points stated on the sheet. Should a junior catch more than one of the same species then each additional fish will count as an additional one point. Its is important that the Parent/Skipper log all fish caught on each competition day. Please submit within 48hrs of the comp start - execpet on the final day, please bring form to Cobbs Quay by 17:00. - Slight change this year with max of 20 for each species counting and only the first of a species taking the "species points", the rest score 1 point. Also, added an unlisted species - again 20 max of each and only 1 point each. -- e.g. Bass + 5 points - so 2 bass = 6 points total, 20 bass = 24 points, 30 bass = 24 points All Juniors must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Note: If a competition day is cancelled it may not be re-scheduled. Juniors must be registered at least the day before each competiton starts (execpt for the last date (Sept) when 2 weeks notice is required). Registering is via the Comp Organiser or on this forum thread below. Juniors over 11 are expected to bait up, cast and retrieve fish on their own with minimal help. In event of a tie on points, the younger competitor will finish in the better position. Comp Organiser's decision is final. The score sheet below: Rob JuniorCompScoreSheet2018.pdf

    I am sure your right Dave, unfortunately to have anything left for the future,I am certain Charlie’s wise words are correct. There are always bad apples in every barrel and sea fishermen (RSA) seem to have there fair share if not more, it’s a great shame. I do feel sorry for genuine charter skippers trying to make a living but we cannot carry on as we are. RSA need to stand togeather to be heard, we are our own worst enemy but need to be heard over so many things happening in our seas and oceans.

    Not actually fishing, both taken approx. 1980, In the first photo I'm waiting for enough water so I can go fishing. The second photo was taken about an hour before my youngest daughter outfished me.
