  1. Poole Old Bridge.

    Only drove through Cobbs yesterday and thought it must be time you were in. Dean and I are thinking (weather permitting) of going out to drown some worms next Saturday. Was on my boat today and the sea temp was at 10.5 deg so is starting to warm up a little

    A. Try and stay with the crew you're going with if no spaces available ask if other crews accommodation have a space B. 12-20lb class rods covers most everything. Maybe a few frozen mackerel and sandeels to get started on the banks but generally never needed as you will hopefully catch some en- route. Running ledger is the rig of choice for the banks with 5/0 - 6/0 hooks on 25lb trace line. Normal wreck gear including jellies/shads in various colours and weights/sizes. C. Keep well away from Charlie as he has been known to be a bad influence + he is probably the most experienced skipper going so you will learn loads D. Cherry poping is very expensive so take plenty of beer tokens

  16. How did you get that eye patch

    A sailor and a pirate are in a bar recounting their adventures at sea. Seeing the pirate’s peg-leg, hook, and eye patch the sailor asks: “So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?” The pirate replies: “We were caught in a huge storm and a giant wave swept me overboard. Just as me crew were pullin’ me out a school of sharks appeared and one of ’em bit me leg off.” “Blimey!” said the sailor . “And how’d you get the hook?” “Arrrr…”, mused the old salt, “I got into a fight over a woman in a bar, and me hand got chopped off.” “Blimey!” remarked the sailor. “And how about the eye patch?” “Oh that,” said the pirate, looking embarrassed. A seagull droppin’ fell into me eye.” “You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?” the questioner asked incredulously. “Well…” said the old sea dog, ” it was me first day with the hook.”
  17. Testing a Fishy theory

    Two sailors are talking: Sailor A: “I hear fish is good brain food.” Sailor B: “Yeah, I eat it all the time.” Sailor A: “Well, there goes another theory!”
