  1. Great decision Jerry. We stand more of a chance at catching a Cod down at this end in December/January. Greg
  2. We are also on standby for the comp. Marlin - Greg and Rob Samways
  3. Joking aside, I have had a Trigger on the boat caught by Bournemouth Pier. Like all Triggers, they feed mainly in one small area and at a certain time of the tide running. The skill is knowing where and when to fish for them!!!!! To prove this, when I was snorkelling in Barbados, there was a small concrete jetty by the hotel. At the end of the jetty was about 10 feet of water. Amongst other fish there was a Trigger that would visit at certain times of the day and at exactly the same spot. So the answer to all of this is to get your Budgie smugglers on and go hunting, that is if you are that desperate to catch one !!!!!
  4. Hi Trev, My table is mounted similar to yours. The drainage holes are at the back of the table and when at sea I tilt the table downwards away from the boat which allows the blood and ink juices to drain directly into the sea. Therefore, non of the crap comes into the boat.
  5. I suggest you drill some drainage holes, otherwise you could be wearing your bait/fish in choppy weather!!! I speak with experience !!!!!
  6. I also had a potter out on Sunday. Heard someone on Channel 6 saying that they were catching a couple of late Trigger fish at the Pier!!!! Now that is late!!!!!!
  7. Totally the right decision Jerry. Good call. I have been holding off putting our names down for tomorrow due to the uncertainty of the weather. Look forward to the next date. Greg ( instead I will pop out tomorrow in the harbour entrance for a Bass or two!!!)
  8. Hi Mal, Do boats that do not have AIS/Radar come up on your Marine tracking system? Or, is the vessel shown but un-named? Greg
  9. Happy Birthday Stuie, It was great to meet up with you again at the Club Meeting. Hope you have had a great day. Greg
  10. What a great Fish Well done Wendy 👍
  11. Very similar day to Mal, lots of bird activity with the surface bubbling with baitfish and Bass, but, unfortunately could not temp anything on board lager than a 1lb 7 Once Bass to me !!!
  12. Marlin - Greg and Brad Sunday (finally got a weekend off 🙂 !!!)

    Plane crash

    A very sad sight indeed Mick. Carol and I had left the Air Show early to pick our son up from work. We waved to Tony and Loraine on Serenity on the way out of the anchorage area. Unlike me, we ambled back taking our time as we would be too early for the 16.30 bridges. We had just passed the Shore Road mark when were saw the two Wing Walker Bi-planes pass us. We looked at them for a couple of moments and then Carol commented that one was flying low. I thought it was going to do a Fly Pass by the Haven, instead to our horror we saw it just out of the sky round the corner of the Haven. We did not see it crash but we were soon there and saw the Life boat attending to some persons by the Brownsea pick up point by the Haven. The news since have reported that both the Pilot and the Female Wing Walker were safe and sound and had got away with minor injuries. Apparently, the plane had nose dived and flipped over. The two then popped up and were rescued by a passing Rib. Eye witnesses saw the plane ditch just before the Chain Ferry on the harbour entrance side. This happened just in front of a guy fishing from the Rocks Thankfully, both are alive but really upsetting to watch it go down. Greg
  14. Unfortunately due to Carol falling ill overnight we will have to sit this one out. Good luck everyone Greg

    Boat on fire

    I expect their are a few Marinas reviewing their Fire procedures now looking at that incident. God forbid if it happened at Cobbs!!! It is so important to have Fire Breaks for that very reason. But in reality I guess it is not practicable!!

    What a kipper!!

    The guy who caught that looks a bundle of laughs whilst holding his prize!!! I think I would of had a smile from ear to ear with that monster.

    Ideas please.

    I have used Robton Engineering as well. They made a special rail for the back of my Quicksilver Pilothouse to take rod holders. The work was excellent but took nearly three months to make the item as they were very busy at the time. I suggest wherever you go Terry, you ask them to give you a realistic lead in time for manufacture. I would certainly recommend them as well.

    Ideas please.

    Terry I have used Stainless Steel Steve in the past. 01590 674988. He specialises in Marine Stainless Steel Engineering. He is based at Lymington and his website is currently under construction. I am sure others will give you their contacts. Greg
  20. I know what you are going through Pete. It has been a real crap time for all of us and like you I have lost the interest in fishing recently. All I can advise is that when I got rid of my first boat to raise cash to start our business 20 years ago, I missed it greatly, and bought a new boat three years after. I now tend to do more leisure boating now with the odd trolling of lures to keep into fishing. I find it a real chore now to get up early and scrabble for bait and all the hassle of cleaning down afterwards. Actually, thinking about, it I think the recent lockdowns and restrictions have made me very lazy when it comes to fishing!!! I will get back into it again once all the restrictions have been lifted. I hope you hang in there and would hope to see you at the next club meet. Cheers Greg
  21. Thanks Lofty Two Great Photos. (Even if I do say so myself LOL)
