    Friday 16th. November.

    As the wind had gone around a little NE I decided to go blow out some cobwebs today at the Rockley end of the harbour with Mr Nash. The plus side being we used about £2.50 in fuel and managed to drown a few worms. The bonus was my first flounder of the season, followed up with plenty of small bass. Not a huge fish but very thick in the body. However as Allan said plenty of crabs stealing the baits still.

    Best Rod and Reel Combo under £100?

    If your a little light on budget don't forgot some of the groups online, I know Facebook can have its ups and downs but there are some good locale groups for buying and selling and fishing gear comes up for grabs often. Always plenty of people that are clearing out this time of the season.

    Ray Competition

    We gave it a shot Saturday.was a little late getting out and as the weather was due to change in the afternoon we made a dash for an inshore mark, we arrived to see Charlie and the crew trying a similar thing 🙂 however a call from Charlie indicted that weed was hampering play. We stuck it out knowing that if the wind picked up we have some cover from the land .we managed 1 small eye ray over 3lb 8oz. Then the wind started to pick up and the tide was due to turn and we did not fancy that combo. A quick wave to the boys and we finished up with A few bream in the harbour. Mike

    A new project named Blah ( could get messy)

    As Neil said its often that some one replaces these rubber seal types with an low quality material and they can flex and pop out. Its common that when putting the anchor down some ones phat bum often lands on the front screen and pops the window in and or breaks it. I remember fitting new windows into a boat when we built one from new and one of the hardest jobs was installing the beading into the new window trims, however once installed there where almost unbreakable. I like the bolt in sat on foam system myself, however I do tend to prefer them being recessed for this to work and smaller panels.

    Anchor rode what sort of length for inshore

    I fish on a small 17ft Explorer elite mainly inshore marks like you listed, I am lucky in that I have a large anchor well to keep rope in. I have about 150m of 10mm rope fitted with a small Bruce of 5kg however I do have around 8m of chain as I think this off sets the smaller anchor and helps it hold better I have not so far slipped. I use the Alderney ring method to retrieve so the extra chain weight is no problem. Its more rope than I would ever need, it just makes me fill confident knowing I have it if needed. I also carry another 50m coiled up as a spare just in case......

    Near miss whilst at Anchor off Southbourne.

    That just sums up the people we are talking about, clueless and inconsiderate at speed or at at anchor, the sea will never be big enough for some people. Sent from my P00C using Tapatalk

    Video Editing

    I fixed up a cheap one last week when I was out alone, I've not played back the footage yet to see how the quality is. However I have always wanted a Go pro and it might be the excuse I need to the wife to get one! Sorry to use your bad experience to get a new toy but....every cloud has a silver lining 😄

    Video Editing

    Having had a few words with inconsiderate people this year I've been tempted to fix up an action cam and record my days afloat just encase something happens! That way I have a chance to play back the footage and try and get some details!

    Reflections 2 second trip of the year

    Plenty of dogfish about and small hounds up to about 5lb. I was working a set of feathers at one point and thought I had hit jackpot only to bring in another hound lol. Weather was nice and I was not at work [emoji3] Sent from my P00C using Tapatalk
