    Bass catch and release from now

    This may make sense for fish or bass conservation , i dont know, but i wonder if the "bass police" were aboard the trawler sight seeing up and down the coast off brighton a few days ago did a species count we would like to hear their findings. By a species count i mean the number of fish in each species, it could have been a frightening amount couldn't it ? possibly a significant number of bass in that. Colin.

    New prop anyone?

    Very interesting indeed Brian, i put a new engine on my boat earlier this year and went through a process of testing 3 props, one aluminium 2 stainless, the advice i was given about the stainless was not correct it was a prop called appolo, the best prop i found , after doing very accutate tests up wareham channel was called balistic. it seem to out perform all the others at most stages from idle to flat out ,. at preferred cruising speed especially. i achieved a top speed of 28 m p h . o yes and by the way at 25 m p h i passed the only boa t visible in the whole area on a sunday afternoon which was harbour control. i did a quick u turn to explain my reasoning for being there, they gave me a positive response told me to be mindful of any other boats if i met any, and said they would look the other way . phew i thought my sense of humor and quick thinking honesty has probably just saved me£ 1000 fine and or 3 weeks porridge! after this testing i also had the pitch increased to add further fuel efficiency The Sharrow prop seems to suggest a further 15% fuel saving could be made. i will try and pursue this but dont expect it will be easy. i will do some research. and update my findings. price ? i think 1 and 1/2 to twice the price of normal stainless prop may be? Colin.

    Mission Accomplished

    Sounds like a good day Jerry, and what a clubmate, delivering tea bags, on a day like saturday that must come close to being in the category of life saving !
  10. Just when most of us made the decision not to brave the rain i found out a couple of keen clubmates did , iam posting for them, their day was spent mostly catching Rays i am not going to post the coordinates on here as it is secret, "hint-hint". A grand total of 15 i believe, were hauled up biggest around 13 lb est, 3 varieties . interspersed with 8 doggies and a couple of mac. just in case anyone thinks they were mad going out in the rain i will not mention any names, Farmer Colin, P S I could not remember how big the mac was Frank and Jan!

    Birthday best wishes Charlie & Coddy

    Happy Birthday Charlie, got you priorities right then i see, work first build up the appetite, love is more important than fishing, so no fishing trip today then, good compromise you could have fish and chip supper with Wendy! Hope you have a good day. Happy Birthday as well Dave all the best Colin.
