Swanage 13th April kayak recce


Recommended Posts

Went out to the Black bream mark in the fabulous early conditions. Didn’t find any but did get some dogs and 2 personal best Rays

Undulate at 16lb and Spotty at 4.75. Question. My scale does pounds but to me it looks like it then does percentages of lbs?

The undulate bounced from 15.98 to 16.28 lbs.

The spotted from 4.75 to just under 5

Will be adding the weights to catch reports once you chaps clarify

Those scales are reading in pounds and decimals. 

to get the ounces then multiply 16 by the decimal so

16 X .98 = 15.7 oz

16 X .28 = 4.9 oz 

Undulate was between 15lb 15.7oz and 16lb 4.9oz

Spotty was 4lb 11.2 oz using weight shown on scales (4.70)

Hope that makes sense.

Sorry to be picky

 

Not sure that is correct 15.98lb cannot be 15lb 7oz, as that is less than 15.5

 

1 oz = 0.0625lb

 

0.98 divided 0.0625 equals 15.68 ounces, add to pounds

 

15.98 =  15lb 15oz rounded down

 

 

.75 is a little easier as .75 of a 16 ounce pound is 12 ounces

4.75 = 4lb 12 oz

Do you want to check the maths again ??

 

0.98 lbs  cannot be 15.68 oz   !!

 

2 grms  is less than 1/14 th of an oz...  just over 28 grms in an ounce

 

I would make 15 . 98 lbs   as 15 lbs  15. 94 oz  or  16 lbs

Cheers chaps. I don’t always weigh like this. I’ve got a big net laundry bag that acts as a sling for stingers and gilts. This way seemed a bit more brutal but they both swam away well. If i’m honest i’m sure I’ve caught bigger undulates at Southbourne but it looked pretty good so got out the scales. Makes me wonder if I should have weighed the others. The spotty was a good size and until I started hauling I thought I had my first Bream as it shot around the yak at first.
FYI my chum eventual found 2 bream
