    WIBAC 2019

    An expensive entry fee but sounds like a good fun 5 days. Accomodation costs on top would probably make this about a Β£1000 investment for a share of a Β£10,000 prize list and with 70 anglers involved chances of me winning some of the money would be absolutely zero..... even if I entered. Not for me I'm afraid I'm not a Competitor ....don't even enter the club comps but that's because they are generally weekend events. Well thats my excuse anywayπŸ™„

    Happy birthday Pete

    Thanks very much for the Birthday wishes guys. I am of an age where I don't tend to look forward to birthdays although on the plus side it is very nice to have got through another year. The family would have probably sectioned me if I had taken the boat out today. Been watching the Rugby and the weather from the comfort of indoors. Got to say there's been some fantastic Rugby played at this world cup and well done South Africa who gave a masterclass of forward play today. I am thankfully all Rugbyied out and can now concentrate on the vast list of alternative activities that have been accumulating in the wings.πŸ˜• I am sure I can now make a start on my celebratory 🍺 No cake though ..still looking after my figure

    Where to keep my boat?

    Driving between Southbourne and Portsmouth and vice versa will be soul destroying at certain times during the year due to horrendous traffic tail backs although you can overcome these most of the time by timing your journey at silly o clock hours. My boat is on drystack in Poole but I live in Eastleigh . Due to numerous crappy journeys I have basically vetoed driving there on weekends and now only go out during the week days outside of rush hour traffic obviously

    Put that lot on the back of Tiddler and I'd take bets she would sink Jim

    I thought I saw your car in the cobbs carpark this morning when I arrived and thought you had got there really early. It would explain why you didn't answer my calls during the day and I didn't spy your boat at the normal marks. Freelanders must be two a penny at Cobbs Hope all goes well with you tomorrow

    Had a very pleasant trip out today although there was a bit of a swell during the flood in the bay. I tried everything to coax a mackerel out from Durley Rock with my new Sabiki Rods and home made Sabiki rigs but they just didn't want to play. I reckon my drifts were not accurate enough. Very frustrating as they showed up on the sounder but by the time I got the lines over the side all was barrenπŸ˜• Anyway all was not lost as I managed to christen both rods with some good sized Pollock. Headed back early so I can be refreshed for a further attempt tomorrow Thursday

  15. Looking to take the boat out this week and trying to get as many days out as possible. Space available if anyone fancies it. I need to at least christen a couple of Sabiki Rods
