    Friday Night Conger

    Hi Gordon, I've got transport issues at the moment, so travelling to Mudeford from Poole is a no goer for me Im afraid mate. Shame because me and Mark have done some night sorties to the ledge, theres some good eels out there. Hope you find a crew. Scott

    Good one Tom, no I didn't know the sex, couldn't remember which had the claspers. Like Mark said both fish went very well on 12lb gear and in 38mtrs of water. And that storm was something else Scott

    Night Fishing...

    Definitely be using the net next time, and the gaff wasn't going anywhere other than under the chin of the eel, but she was spinning like a good un. And as JIMBOB says, a 40lb reef eel is a good size I think, definitely worth targeting seriousley, if thats your thing of course! Scott

    Night Fishing...

    Was a great session, and good experience all round. Mark is being kind regarding the eel we lost, I made a mistake, but we live and learn. We both dropped a good fish, mine was due to me being cocky and fishing to light. Plenty of mackies off Boscombe pier too. Good night, sea flattened right off on the way back to the quay, think we'll try it again for sure. Scott

    First Bass Aboard Espadon

    Hi All, First report I've posted on the forum. Markee B and myself begrudgingly took the day off work yestersday for a few hours aboard Espadon. We headed west with a plan to target rays and tope. Mackies were illusive although we did manage enough for the day. Halfway acroos Swanage bay Markee B has GPS issues and we are fishing blind . We decide to head for the general direction of the Whitehouse Grounds, drop the hook into a fast flowing tide. Doggies were in force from the off, and Mark dropped a good fish early on. As the tide slackened slightly, I had a thumping bite, the fish had clearly hooked itself first hit, It felt good initially, mid water seemed to settle down, thought it was a small tope until it hit the surface and I saw the enormous mouth of a good bass, gave the fish some line and it shot off like a steam train, scrapping well until Mark netted her, beauty. It weighed 8.5lb on Marks dodgey scales , took it to Poole Sea Angling where Andy weighed it at 7.5lb, still my PB and a stunning fish, dead chuffed, thanks Mark. It is now our secret Bass mark, so secret even we don't know where it is due to lack of GPS Scott

    Nice one Jack, waterproof paint presumably???? Scott

    First Bass Aboard Espadon

    It must have been Markee B's expert intuition Duncan, was very much suck it and see when we dropped the hook, we were fishing 1.5lb of lead at the time, which was a shame, by the time the tide started ebbing hard it became pretty much unfishable, we were using half of a side of fish on a 4/0. Like Mark said, thanks to Mad Mike we were able to find the grounds visually without to much problem, good job as we didn't have many choices!!! Was great to get a good fish over the gunnels of Espadon, we've put in some fruitless hours over the past few weeks all bar some good bream, and its great when it all comes together. Its quite a learning curve, but as you can see Markee B's doing good, and my anchor monkey skills are building. Heres to loads more lunkers Scott

    First Bass Aboard Espadon

    Thanks fellas, still smiling this morning!!! Tom, GPS was fine until we were just off Peveril when it froze, but I'm sure Mark will tell you all about it. And your right, would of missed the fish if we'd of headed for our original mark. Kaptain Kod, great tip!!! Like it Scott

    Now Recruiting

    Make sure it is only temporary, and tell whoever fills my anchor monkey shoes to look after my anchor I promise not to catch too much when I go to Alder's, and also promise not to send you picture messages of every fish I catch. Scott

    Dolphind Bream Comp

    Really looking forward to this Sundays comp, the baits ordered and we know where we are going. Should be a good one, got a feeling the winning fish will be a beauty judging by recent reports. Good luck to all competitors Scott

    Left Handed Multipliers

    Cheers for the helpfull response fella's, The Penn was on the shortlist, looks like that or he digs deeper and buys a bigger Avet. Shame Shimano don't do a left handed TLD, just bought a 20 myself and its a quality unit. Scott

    Left Handed Multipliers

    Hi, Can anyone recommend a medium size left handed boat multiplier, its not for me but my cack handed father, hes got a 12lb set of gear, he's currently using an Avet, but he wants a 20/30lb set as well, and there ain't many out there, Abu 7001 would be too small, and the Shimano TLD's only come right handed. Any suggestions??? Thanks Scott

    Friday 28th

    Errrr, sorry mate, how little 'you' catch. Scott
  23. Scott T


    I can honestly say I've really enjoyed reading BFM, much more than other mags anyway. All angling publications are guilty of the same crimes, i.e repeat articles year on year, but I suppose there is only so much that can be written about catching various species. Great response from Jim Whippy, good on ya. Scott

    Friday 28th

    I think its a great plan mate Think people might be sulking because we are abusing the already long weekend by bunking off Friday. All we need do now is find them fish. Scott

    Glad I wasn't the only one, hit me at work and at home later on. Would be worth reminding people to keep there anti virus software up to date. Scott
