    A new project named Blah ( could get messy)

    In this instance being a pillock may be the cheapest option

    live mackeral hard on the bottom. If you get them feeding hard then you can drop down to cut baits/chunks as this will improve hook ups.

    Rodman v Merry fisher?

    how many miles on average to 140lts. On our 18ft we would be getting close to 200 miles.

    just out of interest how far are you prepared to take your Parker? I've only seen them at shows but have been impressed with them. Is fuel capacity a restriction?

    Bass Regs 2018 - C&R

    i remember when Hugh Fernlywhatshisface did a program about discards. He was on a boat off Hastings i think and they had no quota for cod. They kept the cod they caught and when they returned to shore they threw them over the side and there were "locals" on the beach with waders and nets picking the dead cod from the water and taking them. Apparently as the boat hadn't landed them then no offence was committed. Maybe we could do the same with bass?

    Thanks for the offer. Looking to fish Monday to Friday probably early September. Will have to sort accommodation and boat storage.

    Engine change

    i would have thought a new outboard would give you near enough equal performance and running costs and a lot cheaper installation than a new engine and leg and all the alterations needed to fit. You wouldn't lose any deck space and modern outboards now seem to be just as reliable as inboards, just look at the new big cat charter boats swapping to outboards.

    Rod Repair

    very easy to repair. gently heat with a fag lighter to melt glue whilst pulling gently on the ring with a pair of pliers. Once removed take to your local tackle dealer and they should be able to glue a new one on. Or just take to your tackle shop and let them do the whole repair. if you use them regulary they probably only charge for the new ring. it really is only a 5 minute job.
