  1. Well, 3 weeks later and the weather and diary gods have come together and saw Ad and I heading back to Cornwall. No faff for fuel this time, so quicker journey as the queues caused jams! Well, he wanted a Blue in good weather, on his own rods and a nice size. So JoJo found him a 100lb er........... Would saw a few bust ups in the distance, some lasting half an hour. We assume tuna of the bluefin variety. One bust up at the end of our day we shot over too, but seemed to only be a huge pod / superpod of dolphins. Still great to see! Plenty of whiting too. Now to rest and have another meal over the campfire, heaven! R

    JV and some bass

    Headed out in drizzle and a bit of slop this morning on JV with Adam at the helm. Headed south east and tried our usual banker banks. It was slow! Moved to another known mark and found them! But, they were on a very specific part of the bank, 20yds south or north and nothing. After getting out fill of quota, we had a cracking lunch from Adam, stew and dumplings with a side of AJ's homemade bread. Delicious! We then decided to do some exploring as we were out that way and had no need to catch more. But we did! We tried some likely looking spots, nothing and then found one that worked. Giving us more options when we are over that way next time. Nice to have the time to spend testing new water. We headed back in sunshine and and flat glorious sea, I was close to swapping to shorts. We have the mackerel a go for an hour, nothing after drowning feather around Peveril, Ballard and Swash. I think they are localised and if you did em, you find em. Ah well, always next year! Cheers, Rob

    Happy Birthday Stuie

    Thanks for the best wishes everyone - saw grandson's under 8's beat Blandford 15 - 1 so the day started off really well. Saw all the children during the day and a Chinese meal for the two of us in the evening. A memorable day.

  9. Tiddler nips out for a Jolly I was working this morning and Jackie was at her Sister's. When she came home for lunch she said " why don't we go out in the boat" We quickly got everything ready and nipped out. We pootled up to Wareham quay & back. No fishing . . . . Just a Jolly! Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuvly! Must do it more often. Only used Half a Crown in fuel. Sad to see a lot of very badly neglected boats moored up the Wareham river though.

    Radar safety

    It has but only for a few short hours lol The story was that we were fishing a mark called the rips which are about 26 miles out from Poole. We had got there ok with all our electrics working normally however the weather suddenly deteriorated so we decided to about turn and make our way back. At this time our plotter X2 went down and left us with a totally blank screen we also couldn't use the auto pilot. I didn't have a clue what was wrong. Checked connections which were ok, checked trips which were ok and being electrically illiterate at that point I gave up and made a heading at 150 knowing we would hit land and find our way back. Looking around we spotted a naval ship in the distance, it came, it went. After it had gone 3 or 4 miles all our electrics came back to life and back to normal. I can only assume that the amount of power their radar emits blanked out our electrics.

  18. Hi Neil, I have chatted to other committee members and this has arisen before. It was suggested to have a weigh in to have a bit more of a social occasion and maybe something to eat. As Poole is the centre of the earth for PBSBAC 🤣🤣🤣 it has been suggested to continue with the weigh in and if you can txt me by 4pm the day of the Comp then your fish can go into the results, which should be given around 5pm that day. I think this is the best option for keeping as many members happy as we can, I hope you agree. Tight Lines Jerry

  21. The dangling lionfish is hardly bristling in indignation, and let's face it, it should have been! I remember a red-bellied piranha being weighed in at a comp in the late 70s, and the lady who kept it for years in her aquarium was laughing all the way through the weigh-in. I'm not convinced !!! Anyone else think it looks a bit "thawed out" ?

  29. I'd been promising Ad a trip down west on JoJo for the last 4 yrs, but weather and diaries have never come together. The fact we had the chance to have 2 trips in 3 weeks was too good to pass up!!!! I think he has started planning next year's already. R

  30. Commercial Shore Netting Update A big thank you to everyone who supported our campaign against the Government changing the law to allow commercial shore netters to land and sell sea bass. Unfortunately, the Government has gone ahead and made a law that says the prohibition on landing and selling bass does not apply to bycatches from some commercial shore netting. This legislation seems to us to be ill-founded and incoherent: no bass catch limits no closed season to protect spawning bass. will increase bass mortality, particularly juvenile bass discriminatory against recreational fishing We also have grave concerns about the way this policy decision was made. This is not the way to gain the trust or support of sea anglers. You can read more about this law change on our website by clicking here: https://www.saveourseabass.org/commercial-shore-netting-update-september-2021/ END Contact details: info@saveourseabass.org

  31. I was lucky enough to be invited out on Stingray last year. She is superbly laid out and that engine is very smooth and you give it a right good flushing through after every trip. I can guess that the Mark 1 in Gosport will be cheaper and then start spending ! 0r Probably pay a bit more for one that's ready to go and the spending has already been done. I know which way I'd jump. Just my opinion ! ! As an ex Warrior owner I can vouch for their quality.

    Something fried my GPS receiver for my Lowrance on Small Fry many years ago. 2 Guys from Lowrance were at a show and came over in the evening. They thought it was probably caused by a naval radar on high power. They gave me a new receiver completely free of charge. Fantastic service.

  37. We had 5 days in Fowey last week. Had a couple of sessions on the sharks landing 8 to over 100lb. Didn't see a single tuna though, last year they were everywhere. We fish around 12-14 miles out. Only caught about 6 mackerel which is a concern!!

    Pollution - urgent update

    View in browser | Members Update Members Update October 18th, 2021 24 hours to force the government to stop sewage pollution - please act now! Dear Member Parliament will be debating the Environment Bill on Wednesday (20th October). This is the last chance to make sure the Bill contains firm action to stop raw sewage pouring into our rivers and seas from storm overflows. We need you to EMAIL YOUR MP IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS to ask them to support clause 82 of the Environment Bill and resist any last-minute attempt by the government to weaken this clause. Clause 82 will place a “duty on sewerage undertakers to take all reasonable steps to ensure untreated sewage is not discharged from storm overflows”. This means Water Companies will not just have to monitor and report, they must act to stop this pollution. Please email ASAP as the vote is on Wednesday. Emailing your MP is simple. Just visit Theyworkforyou.com, enter your post code and when you get to your MP's page click the “send a message” button. Ask them to support Clause 82 of the Environment Bill at the Consideration of Lords Amendment debate and to tell them to resist any attempts by the government to change this clause. When writing feel free to tell them how passionate you are about our rivers and seas, and how you want clear and healthy waters fit for fish to swim in and people to enjoy. Template Text Whilst personal emails are more effective we realise that time is short so here’s a form of wording that you can cut, paste and adapt for sending to your own MP: “Dear [Insert Name] MP I am a keen angler and would like you to take action this week to strengthen the Environment Bill to end the scandal of untreated sewage entering our rivers and seas. There were a shocking 400,000 spills from storm overflows in 2020 and Clause 82 of the Environment Bill at the Consideration of Lords Amendment debate on Wednesday (Oct 20) is your chance to make a difference and take a big step towards ending pollution of our rivers and seas from raw sewage. The declining condition of our rivers due to pollution is a national disgrace and flies in the face of government promises ‘to leave the environment in a better condition for the next generation’. As anglers, we see first hand what damage is being done and I urge you to support the Lords Amendment to force water companies to stop pouring untreated sewage into our local rivers and seas which should be a haven for fish and wildlife and something we can all enjoy in safety.” Please act now and thank you for your support.
