  1. I’m off out to the Nab tower Friday as the weather is looking great and so is the tide. Ok so I’m in Southampton but...... I have room for an intrepid explorer should any of you guys fancy it ?? Early leave mind, 6.30am on the pontoon !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ok so it’s Southampton but......

    Cheers Charlie, it’s my first attempt, I’ve wanted to go for ages but always something prevented it . Friday looks like the big day, even if solo! Don’t suppose you’ve got some proper coordinates locked away somewhere that may save me some time ?? If not, no worries !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bob and the blonde

    Bob walked into a sports bar around 9:58 PM. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV. >> The 10 PM news was coming on. The news crew was covering the story of a man on the ledge of a large building preparing to jump. >> The blonde looked at Bob and said, "Do you think he'll jump?" >> Bob said, "You know, I bet he'll jump." >> The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't." >> Bob placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, "You're on!" >> Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death. >> The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her $20 to Bob. "Fair's fair... Here's your money." >> Bob replied, "I can't take your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 PM news, so I knew he would jump." >> The blonde replied, "I did, too, but I didn't think he'd do it again." >> Bob took the money. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Uptide rig

    Thanks Graham, that’s what I usually use but, I always seem to get tangled. Any ways around this ? Would you ever use a Pennel pulley like in beach casting? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Braid or Mono?

    I use 30lb spiderwire for everything. It’s thin and does not catch in the tide. For uptiding though I use a fixed spool with 18-20lb mono. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Reel wizard

    Probably a lot of you on here have used Dave before for your reel servicing and repairs. But, for you guys that have not, I can thoroughly recommend him. Over the past two weeks I have had all 4 of my multipliers serviced by Dave and have been delighted with the results. I’m not the best (or worst) at looking after my kit but, on return all my reels have looked, smelt and operated like they are brand new !! Wish I’d done it ages ago !! What a wizard !! Thanks Dave !

    Guido

    A virile, middle-aged, Italian guy named Guido was relaxing at his favourite bar in Rome when he managed to attract a spectacular young blonde. Things progressed to the point where he invited her back to his apartment. After a while they retired to his bedroom where he 'rattled' her in spectacular fashion. After a smoke and brief interlude he asked with a smile, "So, you finish? She paused for a second, frowned, and replied, "No." Surprised, Guido reached for her again, and the rattling resumed. This time she thrashed about wildly amid screams of passion. Finally, Guido comes to a halt. He smiles and asks, "You finish?" Once again, after a short pause, she returns his smile, cuddles closer to him and softly says, "No." Stunned, but damned if he was going to leave this woman unsatisfied, Guido, mustering all his strength and recuperative powers, cranks up for one final burst. In a wild, monumentally frenetic climax they end together, screaming, snorting, bucking, and ripping at the bed sheets. Absolutely and completely buggered, Guido falls onto his back, gasping for air. Barely able to turn his head, he looks into her eyes, smiles proudly and asked again, "You finish?" Barely able to speak, the blond whispers in his ear, "No, I'm Norwegian!

    one bass a day from October

    Yes Greg you are correct. If we’re 4-6lb I’d probably have dispatched it (if it were legal)!! A double figure bass that has got past all the commercials and nets etc deserves to go back and spawn another generation !!

    Best Rod and Reel Combo under £100?

    Out of sheer curiosity I’ve had a butchers at them just now. I must say they look the part and their range is quite extensive!! I’m always sceptical about cheap gear from China / Japan or wherever, so will be good to hear back from you about them after the winter. Tell us how they fair after a few cod and whiting have been landed on them !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If you up your budget by another £30k (a mere snip), I know of a rather lovely Parker 660 pilothouse for sale !!!!! [emoji847] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Galeon Galia 640?

    If it’s the one in Christchurch then I would be getting a evinrude qualified engineer to properly check the engine (I think it’s a two stroke). Good engines I believe if well maintained but, can be a pig if not looked after. Also, change the radar reflector ontop of the wheel house. Those tube types are near enough useless !! Good luck , hull looks nice ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best Rod and Reel Combo under £100?

    I use two Penns (can’t remember the models), an avet and a daiwa slosh with level wind . All are good makes for the area we fish and reliable. I’m am right handed but wind with my left which can limit choice a bit but if you don’t fish with a lefty wind it won’t be too restrictive !! What ever you decide on just wash them down in fresh water after every use and they will last longer!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best Rod and Reel Combo under £100?

    Seriously , the ugly stick will be a great rod but, you will need to spend more than £50 on a reel. You will soon be buying a new one if you buy a budget reel. Spend £100-150 on a decent reel and it will last years ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
