    Is that the Poole Bay Monster?

    I to had a battle with the beast while fishing off the needles with Nigel ... It was running uptide and I had tightened up the drag as much as I dared but was running out of 40lb braid rapidly !! Nigel was just about to pull the hook up and steam after it when my hook pulled out :-((

    Repaired reels

    I used to do a lot of carp fishing and had the usual 3 x rods and 3 x bait runners which now are used for bass fishing .. I have had the reels for nearly 20 years and all look like new still.. But two of the bait runners last year developed mechanical problems and with spares a no chance they sat in a cupboard !! Until tonight when I picked them up from Dave Lynes all fixed and ready for another 20 years :-))) New bearings in my lever drag and a service on the other ... Nice one Dave :-))

    Cod Competion - part 2

    Nigel and myself made the call to give it a go at the carpark ... Entered into poole cod comp then off to wishin too for a cod hunt .. Trying to get down the river with minimal water levels tested Nigel's patience we ran aground several times and the wind would then spin us around .... Eventually we were on our way around 10.30am, facing a rough sea ahead, but Nigel was eager so 20 knots It was ... I was the first into a cod while Nigel was playing with congers a small one at 7lb 13 .. Nigel continued to play with congers for the rest of the day until around 3.15 when he hooked into a cod, a better fish 14 lb 2 Last drop and and a nice whiting to me 2lb 9 Back at Christchurch marina for 4.30 then off to poole quay for the weigh in... 52 anglers ... 7 cod weighed in... Nigel took 5th place and me 6th .. Both got on the prize table .. A meal was laid on by poole cod comp at quay cafe for anglers which was a great finish to a good days fishing Thanks Nigel and well done for at last catching a cod in a cod comp haha
