  1. Might be worth looking at accommodation now - you can imagine their being quite an influx after lock-down easing?....
  2. The Blue Boys are back....
  3. I'll need to book time off work so are we saying 3rd July onward for a trip? I'll book the week off and go when / if a 3 day window allows? It's been years since we did a proper PBSBAC convoy over to Alderney so would be good to get a few boats together - it's the furthest most of us will get this year for a holiday!
  4. Team JV are keen to come over, we’ve not been for 3 years. As weekends start to book up would it be an idea to look at dates and tides?
  5. Tigerfish - Steve, TBA Fisheagle subject to weather. Crew TBA. Flat White, Dan +? Madness - Dean - Martin Serenity -Tony + 1 ( any volunteers?) JV - Adam - Ian - Rob - Alun tbc
  6. With a warm and settled evening forecast On Tues, I took Rob and a friend Pete done to Barton to fish all night for sole. Conditions were perfect - good sized tide, calm, slightly overcast and warm. We settled in at 8pm for the last 2 hours of the flood as it got dark. We had some cracking worm baits.... Pete struck early with a decent 35cm sole, and I was quickly into a little Smoothound. But that was pretty much it. The slack arrived for an hour and we swung around into the ebb. With hope raised again as Pete added another 28cm sole to the bag and another smoothound.
  7. I’ll take the Bruce 7.5kg anchor please. I’m away at the moment but will sort collection when I’m back.
  8. Re. Bleeding. I watched this on several charter boats and used to adopt it as standard. I always used to carry some poultry shears to deal with tough gills on big fish. But - I no longer do (commercials don’t either?) and I still get pristine white, clear fillets. The concept that the blood taints the flesh doesn’t seem to be the case? Not saying I’m right, just my findings.
  9. I remember the bad old days! Stepping off a charter boat with a black bin bag of fillets, or when we pushed the boat out, a builders rubble sack of whole fish. During the day fish went into a fish box on the deck! When I progressed to my own boat, it was a bucket a first.... upgraded later to a square box so the fish werent folded.... and when I really went the extra mile, I finally obtained a proper commercial fish box - I even had a plywood top I cut to fit as a cutting board - the height of sophistication! It wasnt until we started doing the Alderney trips on the bigger boats what w
  10. Well the weekend weather looks pretty good so as it stands JV will be heading for either a day of wrecking followed by the banks or the other way round. Staying in Portland Marina, and depending on access to pubs may even eat on the boat. Tides are small, aiming to leave circa 7am Sat. I’ll ring a Portland tomorrow to book a berth. Adam
  11. With the Channel Islands looking out of the equation this year, I’m planning at least one trip West to overnight in Portland. Next weekend is shaping up ok at the moment ( although these low pressure systems are so changeable!) Anyone fancy a trip - I’m going anyway but would be nice to have a buddy / catch up with other members after lockdown!

    Top Pic was my first ever 'own boat' Cod - back in the days when you could be pretty sure of catching a cod in the winter in the bay without going all the way to the Needles. Caught 2 miles off Christchurch in Tara. Next was my first Conger - caught on a club trip (Christchurch & District Sea Angling Club - remember them?) on one of the Berry Boats from Poole. Fishing what I think would have been the Whitehouse Grounds off Swanage. Next two were Boscombe Pier circa late 80's with my Dad. Last one is another story - but this 32lb cod on Blue Warrior was p

    Thanks for adding in guys, it's always good to take a walk down memory lane.... many of my good friends were made from this club and have helped me out massively over the years, be it advice, labour or rescuing on more than one occasion! Whilst I build up to the next chapter, and find some old pictures for you, I'll fill the space with a story from a few years back: " James had got some intel that a local fisherman had been catching some nice bass off Kimmeridge by trolling live mackeral close to the shore, good numbers and a couple of doubles were enough to persuade us
