    What have I gone and done ??

    It has been a huge decision, it’s taken many months, Doombar is getting a brand new engine! Getting the right deal, making sure this is going to be a case of picking up the keys and living the dream 🤔 This year I decided that life really is to short , the thing that you can never buy is time, the next thing is your health. I had thought about just giving up this private boat owning , I never got the time to get out, working for the NHS last year was bloody hard, I can’t see the situation is going to change this year.( unless I drastically reduce my work hours☹️) A few years ago I had my eye on a new Warrior 175 fully rigged and ready, it seemed like a good idea. Doombar is a Pilot 20 , it is the same as a Wilson Flyer, , I love this hull, so stable as a fishing platform, , she does slam, she is cosmetically not that good, . Last season saw the poor old girl dirty, chipped, and pretty much abused, I ran her into rocks and mud etc etc but she did the job. Holes bay Marine are the suppliers, Mariner 90 fully supplied with all the bits and a 5 year warranty ( the warranty thing was the thing that sealed the deal) along with finding a decent mechanic to service it ( Evinrude went bust and I lost all confidence in the servicing etc). Im sticking with Cobbs for another year, they have been good to me last year so again. Im believe it will all be done in the next six weeks, I’m hoping Mariner 90 is as good as it’s reviews. ( Suzuki was a very close contender) Yes, I’m exited, never been able to by anything new in 32 years of boating, , let’s see if I will actually get out to those mid channel wrecks , the Shambles, , etc etc 😁😁😁

    Christchurch Entrance

    Interesting reading on RNLI Mudeford Facebook page: " They have been several boats run aground on the sandbar over the course of this week. Please BE AWARE that the yellow bouys are not channel markers and do not indicate safe water. Christchurch Harbour entrance can be treacherous, especially in winter when the sandbar is constantly moving – especially so during storms. The reason the red and green channel markers are removed over the winter is because due to the sandbar movement they would never be in the right place and would mislead seafarers about the channel. The yellow markers primary purpose is as an indicator for the commercial fisherman, who use the channel every day, monitor the sandbar on a daily basis and then use their professional judgement as to where safe water might be. Please do not assume the yellow markers indicate safe water – they do not. " If I am going out, I have a chat with Alun as he always has a feel for the channel! Stay safe and HNY, R

    He will be back Brian, he will find out both give you a headache and the best way to get rid of them is to go fishing. I’ve been doing it for years. 😂😂

    After much deliberation, I decided to stretch my budget and go for the Anyfish Anywhere range (thanks Neil), and have ordered the "Four and Bait" as a conti-capable rod with a bit more oomph, and a "Six and Bait" as a more powerful rod still that will perform well even without tournament-style capabilities. Both at 14 feet, and both ringed for fixed spool. The positive online reviews of both rods helped, plus I liked the fact they've proven themselves over the last decade, the build quality being that bit heavier, and they don't keep changing the range every 5 minutes. Sadly, I suspect I won't get a crack at the whiting with them, and might have to target the spring plaice and summer hounds when I first get a chance to use them, but that's ok, I suspect there will be ample opportunity this year. When I get the chance, I can fish one long one short, like Ohgreatone does, have the option of braid for bite sensitivity, can use them together, or pair them with an existing bass rod or conventional beachcaster depending on location and conditions. Many thanks for all of the comments and advice. I look forward to practice, practice, practice! With bait of course Colin.

    Jaws - caught at Chesil Beach

    great fish that. I have never caught one. a mate of mine caught one of those on Chesil on my very first trip there as a teenager. [long time ago now] I remember it scared him to death in the dark, when his torch shone on all of its teeth. LOL
